In older post I wrote about unified soviet tube audio amplifier. This is from “high class” device. Today, I found the schematics of “highest class”, the HiFi audio device: AM/FM radio, record player. The output is 6W of pure tube power with lowest distortion. This device was manufactured in 1964 and schematics published in popular radio magazine in 1965. With some our days modifications it is possible to build quite cool power amp with quite popular tubes.

I have been looking at the HIFI Amplifiers that you have posted on your Brain Dump page and would like to know how to translate the Transformer Wire size to english. Could you help me? I will appreciate it or any link that would allow me to enter these values and translate them
Example: wire thickness ПЭЛ 0.14 and core Ш20.
I have searched for a way to translate these to no avail.
Ш20 means, that transformer’s metal core is in the form of “E” (just rotate to get “Ш”) and number “20″ is width of the central part (where winding is). There is missing another parameter- thickness of the transformer (толщина пакета).
About the wire: ПЭЛ 0.14 – the diameter of copper wire is 0.14mm, characters ПЭЛ means “Провод с Эмалевым Лакостойким покрытием масляно-смоляные эмаль, лаки на основе полимеризованных растительных масел” just the type of wire varnish. Any decent copper wire will be better that old russian ПЭЛ.
