If you want more upgrade options, I recommend you to look at TU-8230.
For $250 more, this amp is far superior then TU-879s in all respect.[/QUOTE]

Hello Victor,

Where can I get more infos about the TU-8230. It seems to use 300B? and where to order one?

The amp included a pair of 2A3. Please email me. I can send you more info.
TU-8230 is 2A3 only. TU-8233 CAN USE 2A3 AND 300b

Thanks
Victor

Default first post...

Hi all,

Happy holidays! My first post here, but have been viewing the thread for a while and finally ordered a tu-879s. The amp is almost here and thought to ask for a consensus on what upgrades I should do straight away during the build? I haven't seen the full schematic yet, but wanted to see what I should order for caps upgrade as I assemble (manufacturer, uF values, and quantity).

Thanks in advance all!

This has been an enlightening thread!

My wife purchased this kit for me from Tube Depot this Christmas. (I'm in Canada and sorry I wasn't able to do anything about this). On their site they say the supply the Japanese R-Core ... Is this still an after market transformer?

If so, do you have the original in stock? Is it on your website?

Thx
Dave

If you bought TU-879S recently from Tube Depot you should have original R-core.

For the past 8 years, hobbyists have been asking for certain features to modify the TU-879S kit. The highly regarded Elekit designer, Mr. Fujita, has taken all those specific features and specifications into consideration and we are happy to welcome the release of the newly designed TU-8200 in January 30, 2014. TU-8200 has a lot more improvements from its predecessor(TU-879S).

The picture is the latest TU-8200DX with 4 smaller organic caps and 4 Amtrans AMCO 104 Metalized PET film capacitors.
Mr Fujita recommends using organic cap in TU-8200. Although the cost is slightly higher, I want to offer this amp with the best possible parts within the budget.

TU-879S is a very good budget amp kit but TU-8200 is superior to TU-879S in all respects.

Thanks for the information Victor but as stated my wife has already purchased the 879S for me and it's on it's way. And this is fine. I've never built a kit before so the 879S is the perfect starter. I will learn from this experience and move on to a dream build some time in the future after I have gained experience modding this kit out and having fun with it.

Thanks for providing the forum and all the wonderful feedback.
