Velleman K4040

Then was the K4040 from Velleman. Contrary to some reviews, I found this amp sounding rather nice, particularly after I replaced the EL34 tubes in the output stage with separately purchased matched quads. However, the sound does not quite match the price, and I keep this amp mostly for its looks.

Update: I modified this amplifier, leaving little of the original design. See a later post with the details.
