The Peerless A100A, a PP 6B4 or 6A5 amp, has some real technical attributes. First, this amp included a choke equipped passive EQ record compensation equalizer, but pre-RIAA. Altec’s engineers preferred pentodes up front for preamp and first amp stage duty. In fact, their amp front end definitely inspired Dynaco and must also be recognized as showing up here after the British Leak and soon to be seen Mullard front ends! It’s funny how some topology magically appears worldwide around the same time… Altec’s pentode is direct coupled to a 6J5, R-C coupled to a split load phase inverter 6J5, to a push-pull 6SN7, to push-pull cathode follower 6SN7, direct coupled to the center tapped choke loaded output triodes. With low overall feedback, they claimed 18W at less than 5% distortion. Which output tranny, you all wonder? The Peerless S-240Q, of course! Track Page Views With. Auctiva’s FREE Counter.
