I enjoyed the year and a bit I spent in Tel Aviv as a kid, very friendly and to me at the time, exotic place. Hope it has not changed too much, must be much bigger.. Went to school in Jaffa..

I assume by this point that Jaffa has pretty much been overwhelmed by Tel Aviv. There was a very cool Arabic restaurant and bar on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean with a patio having spectacular views. I still remember the hookah smoking patrons in the bar area which was upholstered in some red velvet.. Food and soda was good..

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.

Default MATISE TUBE FANTASY PRE AMP.

Hi I just purchased a MATISE HAND BUILT PRE AMP it uses 2 X ECC83 and 2 XECC81 and 1 XEZ80 Mullard Rectifier tube, I have not plugged it in as yet, As I just ordered a set of Tubes and waiting on Delivery, This PRe AMP has Got 2 Pairs of RCA OUTs and 2 Pairs of RCA Inputs and is wired to for AC240 VOLTS.
ANY Idea how does this pre amp sounds, I will be Coupling it to a SOLID State Class A CROWN POWER LINE 3 Power AMP, as a Friend of mine is Building a Pair Of TUBE MONO BLOCKS using 2 X Driver Tubes and 4 X KT 88 Output Power tubes. I got a Pair of KLIPSH LASCALA 3 way Speakers,
Any idea how this pre amp will match my speakers.
Kind Rgds

In case anybody is still interested: this appears to be the schematic.
Doesn't look half bad I think.
