The Model 9-SS Amplifier

Designed by Dick Sequerra

Model 9-SS

The Model 9-SS power amplifier is a solid state input / vacuum tube output, low feedback design. It has 6 regulated power supplies assuring stable operation throughout its operational life of 30 years or more. Included is a precision digital voltmeter which is used to measure all the regulated voltages as well as the bias settings on the output tubes.
