Default Yaqin CD-2 tube buffer w/Mullard 6AK5

2 tube 6ak5 buffer, point to point construction. Stock chinese tubes, two old Westinghouse 6Ak5s and two fresh matched Military Mullard NOS Mullard M8100/CV4010.

See one like it here (NOT MINE):

Upgraded the coupling caps w/WIMA's. Bypassed the power supply caps with some 2.2uf MKPs.

Sounds good. Used it w/my class D setup and a passive pre. Using preamps now so no need for a buffer anymore.

They are about $125 shipped from China w/ a couple weeks wait. I have upgraded the caps and have about $50 of extra tubes with it.

Looking for $110 shipped to anywhere in the US. I have the original shipping box for safe travel. I'll eat the paypal fees.

The circuit shown is for a triode. The 6AK5 is a pentode!
