Happy New Year!


Another year comes to its end.

A year filled with music, amplifier building and tubes.

This year Deutsche Elektronenröhren Manufaktur GmbH introduced two new tubes.

An ELROG ER5U4G for which we received many requests. And since it is basically the same tube with different base we also launched an ER5Z3.

New tube developments will not end here. We already have two new variants in development due to be launched next year.

More about these when they are ready for release.

Also many new projects in the pipe on the amplifier building side. Here a peek into work in progress for amps and preamps to be shipped next year.

It seems 2022 will be the year of the 300B since I already have 5 pairs of 300B mono blocks to be delivered next year. The first a pair with all silver transformers due to be delivered in January. The interest in the 300B amps seems to be mainly fuelled by the option to equip them with the TM300B.

This set of all out 300B mono blocks will be adequately driven by a Silver 10Y differential line stage.

So the soldering iron will not get any rest next year.

Today we have fantastic weather here in Lindau.

So let me finish this post with some impressions from my home town.

Many thanks to all of you and wish your families and yourselves

Frohes neues Jahr
Happy New Year
Bonne Année
