The model ABS-Q+ auto bias module is designed to optimize the bias for four triode or pentode output tubes in Push-Push (PP) or Parallel-Push-Pull (PPP) amplifiers that have their own negative bias supply circuit.
Suitable for class A, AB, or B tube amplifiers.
The ABS-Q+ dynamically controls the bias in four tubes.
The module automatically optimizes the bias settings and maintains a strict symmetry of currents through both tube branches in the output stage. It will also stop any DC current flowing through the output transformers, all with the minimum of current loading on the anode of a tube.
DC current saturates an output transformer which results in increased low frequency distortions.
The bias level is kept at the preset value irrespective of the input signal.
This module is completely autonomous as it has its own bias and 6.3VAC power supplies.
The ABS-Q+ will operate with the filament supply in your amp reference to ground, such as a center tap, since it comes with it own power transformer!
- PCB dimensions are 100mm x 80mm x 25mm high / 4" x 3.15" x 1" high
- completely autonomous, comes with its own bias and operating supplies!
Price for one ABS-Q module: US$103.00 in stock
