Yes. Salas' 6V6 is a permanent member of my audio family. I am going to redesign the whole board so that everything is together and neat. THe psu will be redesigned to allow for SS or tube rectification. Excellent amp that is well worth the effort. Even got some Mundorf SIO waiting, but have to try old Russion PIO as well.

I think I will like it as well. Must confess I love working with the Ikea tray as a chassis. Building an amp like this goes very fast. And it looks presentable as well I think.

I hate metal work. Well not really hate. But it takes so much longer.

What preamp did the Salas 6v6 replace in your case?
