I've been taking my time on the design on Trinity. I want to make sure its absolutely perfect through and through. Its really something I see as my greatest endeavor. I certainly have vastly more money and time tied up into the R&D of this than anything I've done before. It has to be as perfect as I can make something or it can't be released. The image above is the latest prototype... #008. Please bear in mind there are many more than 8 revisions. This is just the 8th completed unit. Upon building this I decided I want to make some changes to the front and rear panel layouts with the next build. In this particular build I massively fine tuned the electronics. In previous builds there was some (inaudible) subharmonic noise when the EQ was engaged. I redesigned the EQ amplifier stage and added an extra transformer to the EQ stage (interstage transformer). This eliminated all the noise issues. This is the first Trinity with a printed circuit board incorporated. Hold on! The PCB is 100% related to the onboard power supply section. All of the audio is still point to point wired! With the next Trinity, the power supply will have a discrete time delay circuit added to power on the high voltage B+ after the tube filaments heat up. Its been breadboarded and designed in the computer already. I'm feeling very confident the next build will be the first production model. I'm also very excited for when that moment arrives!
