The layout is true to the schematic but not like you would build if you used the supplied directions in the kit.

The only mod was the use of some Gudeman caps in the outputs.

It's very pretty - so, was it worth the trouble?

I wouldn't call it trouble, because I like building things. I'm a tinkerer at heart. This is the first tube anything I've ever built, so not much to compare too. I like it and it works well with my Altec A7's. Building some Paramours now to go with it.

Holy smokes... nice wiring job!

I want to throw all my amps in the garbage now. Thanks.

I have the same speakers. They're heaven on earth.

Hi,

Do you want some C4s's. I have a foreplay that is collecting dust.
Beautiful!

Dale


P.S. I also have some NOS Mullard tubes...

Thanks for the offer of the C4S, but I already have some. So, which Mullards do you have?
