TubeDepot Eclipse Stereo Vacuum Tube Amplifier

DIY-ECLIPSE

The all new TubeDepot Eclipse is a robust and beautiful single ended EL84 amplifier. Capable of pushing moderately efficient speakers to desktop SPL levels, the Eclipse sounds accurate while preserving the comfortably sweet sound of tube audio.

To match the quality of the amplifier, the chassis is married to a CNC machined, polished, and lacquered maple cabinet. The look of fine wood coupled to the the metallic finished, black chassis lends itself to both a classic and modern look in one piece.

In order to remove hum and noise, the Eclipse utilizes a bridge detector circuit. The bridge circuit works as a pair of two-component voltage dividers connected across the same source voltage, with a null-detector connected between them to indicate a condition of “balance” at zero volts. To further reduce hum, noise, and voltage fluctuations, a regulator circuit is employed to reduce the noise floor to less than 5mv.

A GZ34 / 5AR4 is used as the rectifier in the Eclipse’s power supply circuit. A tube rectifier delivers a sense of air and breath that solid state rectification just can’t convey.

No need for a preamp with the Eclipse. Having two inputs and a smooth volume knob, your music and the Eclipse is all you need for a tube audio experience that will Eclipse any other you have had.
