Vacuum tube amplifiers need an output transformer as impedance converter between the high impedance vacuum tubes and the low impedance loudspeaker. A new universal output transformer is proposed. All possible variations of topologies in tube amplifiers are brought into one general system. The new transformer is discussed and results are shown with over twenty different vacuum tube amplifiers from the general system.
