Falstaff Hybrid Circlotron Power Amplifier

   ‭ ‬ There has been considerable debate over the characteristics of tubes versus transistors….. The goal of this hybrid power amplifier is to take advantage of best performance of both technologies tubes and solid state device.‭ ‬Tube is highly linear without negative feedback,‭ ‬smooth clipping,‭ ‬wider dynamic range,‭ ‬characteristics highly independent of temperature,‭ ‬and so on‭…‬but its disadvantages such high-impedance devices that usually need a matching transformer for low impedance speakers.‭ ‬I prefer to…
