Re: Long answer to: Cathode Follower Questions
First of all, thanks to Ken for taking the time to answer my questions. I will definitely be grounding the center tap of the autoformer (because I'll be cathode biasing the EL84's) so that should work well. If I use a 6SN7 for my gain stage/cathode follower, would making the cathode resistor on the follower the same as the plate resistor on the gain stage do the job if the B+ to both comes from the same source? I really just want a ballpark starting point so I can tweak from there. Also, any ideas on a good size for the coupling capacitor from the follower? Thanks again.
