First Watt F3 power amplifier

Combining the “stunning immediacy” of SETs with the reliability of a solid-state design, this 15wpc amp from the kitchen table of Nelson Pass was extraordinarily composed and detailed. The F3 surpasses the performance of most tube amps in its ability to remain absolutely quiet while retaining complete control of the lower frequencies. If you want to make the SET plunge but are put off by the idea of constant re-tubing, this is the solution.
