I'll be there for a whole month (work related), so I am sure there'll be a few weekends with absolutely nothing to do but hop around hi-fi places. So if there is any other interest places to visit in SGP, I would like to know. Thanks.

guess it's too late to repent...although the tubes there are relatively expensive...but Martin (a shop there) is the only hsop that carries Hammond Trafos here in Singapore...

For off the shelf hifi, try the Adelphi and several other shops at Bukit Timah shopping centre. If you want components, go to Sim Lim Tower. I got some TDA1543 and TDA1543A for 1 Euro each there. Sim Lim Square is better for computers and computer parts. And yes, they rip you off if you are a foreigner. Guido, you need to get your friends from Toa Payoh to bring you around.

Default Alternative shops for tubes

Hi Li,
Is there any other place that we can get tubes at a better price ?
Thanks,

ashok,

I will be visiting sing dec 1-4.

i am intersted in building a valve amp (have never built one)

other than valves anything i'd need to import. I wont be able to import a tranny as it is too heavy and i got a wife and 18 month old in tow but i can get a PCB or toher lighter components.

what amp design would you recomend?

my requirements is for a amp to drive a 6" 2way sens about 87-90db in a 300 sq. ft. rooom to about 95db levels at 2 meters (6 feet). budget for valves is about S$300 (USD 200). is this adequte. I expect I can import 4-6 valves before attracting customs or irritating my wife.

i assume a 20-25W design would do the job.

I dun think you can get a tube kit here in Singapore...unless you are talking about the Velleman kits...which are available..but at a price though..I'm not so sure where else to get tubes in Singapore...other than Burlington SQ...there are some shops that sell them in Sim Lim Tower though...check out the speaker repair shop on the top floor (retail shops...not the office buildings)...he has a range of amps that he uses...but are only on display...
