DIY 5687 Tube Preamplifier

The latest addition to the DIY Audio Projects website is a fine looking tube preamplifier constructed by Vincent Wong. The tube preamp is based around a pair of 5687 twin triodes. Each channel uses both sections of a 5687 tube and LED biasing is used on each section.

To keep hum at a minimum, the filaments are heated using DC. The power supply is external to the preamp section and consists of a RCA-83 mercury rectifier and two 50H chokes.
