You Can DIY! A High-Voltage Delay for Tube Amplifiers - The Sequel
In this project for audioXpress magazine, Jan Didden offers a modern update on his original high-voltage delay design, which he built to complement tube amplifiers. His original project, "High-Voltage Delay for Tube Amplifiers" was published in 2014 (click here if you want to read it) and worked fine, but it had two disadvantages: it needed a separate 6.3V heater winding for power, and was limited to a selection of just two delay periods. So, Jan decided to redo this unit with no additional outside power required, and the ability to set the delay between 20 seconds and 254 seconds, which should cover all requirements. The article describes the complete project, and there's a DIY kit available at diyaudio.com.

The kit for this project consists of the PCB, the programmed controller chip, the two power MOSFETs and the low current LED. You can order it at:
