Default My first amp - a direct coupled 2A3

Here is a picture of the assembled units. I still have to wire them, but that's easier than all the build up to this point. I spent a day alone just sanding and polishing the tops.

You can see more of the build on my web site :

Let me be the first to say that those look beautiful. I just built my first amp using similar tools to what you have, and your work puts mine to shame

What's the name of the company that sold you the completed chassis? I've seen them online before but lost the link. They also make those turret boards with the tube sockets mounted right on them.

its on the tip of my tongue....

Actually I got them from International Audio Group. Horace's prices are better.

Default Nice point?

"These point-to-point terminal boards are literally taking the DIY and Hi-Fi market by storm."

Glad to see some are getting on the bandwagon.

Has it become a bandwagon?
If so it would only please me since I've taken that train 18 years ago already...

Not that I should take any credit for that of course.

Happy to see my choices confirmed nonetheless,

\There's that skeptical wink again.

Default A quote from Tubebuilder

Not only them, but over the last several years I have noticed alot of sites mentioning simplicity. After seeing some older equipment it is good to see improvements being implemented.

There are still some at a chat site or two that won't accept the premise that sonic differences occur by this suggestion.
