Default DiyParadiso kits

Does anyone have any experience with the kits on http://www.DiyParadiso.com ?

I'd like like to buy a kit there because it's very near to my place. Is someone able to tell me if they are any good ? (KT88 PP or Mario 300B )

They seem to make their own designs but I'm not able to judge the quality thereof myself.

Any input would be helpful.

Gert

Hi,

Having known the shopowner (Benny Glass) on a personal level for over 15 years I can only recommend his work to you.

He always gives sterling service and is not expensive at all.

I've heard some of the kits at his shop and found them very good value for money, some of them well surpass most commercially available equipment.

So this is a big thumbs up from me.

Cheers,

Default OUTERLIMIT.

Hi Brett,

Although I've seen it at the shop and it was playing some background music, I wouldn't dare to make comments based on just that impression alone.

I plan to meet up with Benny in a couple of weeks and I'll ask him if he can demo either or both versions for me.

I see you're still in love with those...

Cheers,

Default not love, but...

I'm just a sucker for them big bright tubes, and curious about how it sounds.

The way it's looking at the moment, I think I'll stay with the low voltage PP version I'm playing with now.
