I wish to build a preamplifier and have chosen the Bosoz or the AKSA GK1M projects. Can anyone help me on this choice? The GK1M uses a valve at the output stage and some say it is more sweet and melodic. Has anyone built the GK1M?

Thank you

I have not heard the tube Pre-amp mentioned above, but the BOSOZ is warm and romantic. To many folks the BOSOZ pre-amp and Aleph Amps have that tube warmth, without the finickiness and maintenance of tubes.

In my opinion, the BOSOZ sounds like "solid state" tubes. All the benefits of solid state and sonic merits of tubes, without the downside of tubes.
