Lightbulb First Time Pre Amp Build

OK. I just finished my first DIY build a month or two ago. I built a Tubelab Simple SE. And still to this day I am floored by its performance and how well it turned out in general.


Now...


Now I want to build a tube pre amp to drive the simple SE. Why? Because I love tubes and want more. Plus I want the added benefit of extra inputs and a tubed phono stage.

I'm currently looking at the offerings from Aikido right now but wanted to start a thread so maybe you guys could point me in the right direction.


I want a tube rectified pre amp with a phono stage that can drive the Simple SE.


Keep in mind I have no previous experience except the tubelab SE I built. So I need something thats so easy to build a cave man could do it. Or close to it.


If theres something I haven't covered just let me know.

But please feel free to post any recommendations, opionons, pictures, links, or help of any kind. I would appriciate it.


Thanks


Nick

After reading through pre amp threads for weeks. I have decided to go with Aikido for my pre amp build.


I have decided to use the octal stereo line stage board with 4 6sn7 tubes.

I feel pretty confident I can source my parts and build my board and chassis.

But I am a little confused about the Power Source.

Would this work or am I way off?

The Janus board should work fine. Though the Aikido is built to reject noise so I am sure you could do OK as well with just a C-L-C power supply. If you use the Janus board though please report with how they are, I know I for one would be interested.

Cheers

Nick,
GlassWare also has an even more complete AIKIDO with on-board power.

Anyhow, you can not go wrong with an AIKIDO. The PCB is superb, and so is the support from GlassWare and this forum.
