These pictures of Eternity is not the stock version. It has many add-ons including tube rolling.
Eternity is basically a low power version of Infinity. A SET, single ended triode, amp with open loop (no gNFB) and parafeed output. The input stage, using the 6AV6 tube, is grid (fixed) biased. Followed by CCS loaded source followers that drive the output tube grids. The grid drivers relieve the input tube of any drive duty. Tubes do only voltage amplification. Tubes do what they do best and FETs do what they do best, supply current.
The output stage is also SE and grid biased, using the 6S19P tube. All tube anodes are gyrator loaded. Both B+ and B- supplies are regulated.
Eternity, just like Infinity, will have more of the old tube sound than Oblivion and Citadel has. This is because it’s single ended. The balanced amps cancels a lot of distortion and are also constant current draw amps, while Eternity is not. It’s a matter of taste what sound signature you prefer.
Eternity can drive efficient speakers as well as headphones. Power output is 3W into 8 ohms.
Here’s Infinity and Eternity side by side.
