Default Not quite DIY

but I've learned a lot lurking here. Sadly time, space and complete lack of skill or knowledge limits my DIY abilities. Instead I worked with James Burgess to have these amps built. WE91A circuit with 6sj7 driver tubes, hashimoto OPT's, Angela PT, ASC oil caps, teflon V-caps coupling capacitors, etc.

I think they look really nice. The feet are myrtlewood and the top was fabricated by front plate express. The power cords are soundstring's that I've used on other amps and really like - and the captive cords will keep me from fiddling with expensive PC's.

I'm hoping these are my last amps for a while. Can't imagine after all the thought and effort that went into them I'll want to see them go. James is running them in for a day or so and I should have them next week. They'll feed a pair of Audio Note AN/E spe's fed by an Art Audio/Gill Elise LT DAC with volume.

Very pretty & nicely executed. What's with the plastic bags over the OPTs?

polished supply caps
each tube monted on each their own 'personal' printboard, also holding solder lugs
neat 'tricks'
