so i have alot of options on the table right now.. im gonna give everything a look and make my choice. im still considering the ebay kit option as it is very cheap and this project is intended for fun and i want to keep it as simple as possible! heres another kit i saw on the bay:
6Z5P 6N8P Tube Preamp Board with Volume Bass Treble Adjustable | eBay

this one seems a bit nicer then the first one i posted.. no balance which is good and the tubes are standing so better heat management. as far as the circuit goes - i think its pretty much the same.

after some more research - im pretty sure i found the perfect solution!

Buffer 6N3 Tube Preamp Amp Matisse Kit Transformer | eBay

the price is right, it comes with a transformer and there are actual reviews (or review..) online about! its also based on the matisse preamp which i know is pretty good! seems like the right project!

One of those little 6N3's in a Lexan box would look cool.

Kit - ordered!! Its business time..

Ill give it a nice wood case and a selector switch. Later on I plan on dropping in a phono stage and maybe even tone control.

Hopefully you ordered one with a 120V power transformer otherwise you will have to get another one.

The Aikido likely would blow the doors off of this thing, but cost wise at least a good place to start.

Turn on first and allow to warm up BEFORE turning on your solid state power amp. Turn off power amp before turning off the pre-amplifier. Loud thumps or worse are otherwise a distinct possibility.

Probably not a bad idea to put Israel in your profile, lived in Tel Aviv as a kid, did not know you were not in the US given the nature of the gear you own.

I'll fix that right away! Tel aviv is my Home town, and an amazing city by all means - a must visit location for anyone! and indeed, my gear is very "american" in nature..
