Amp build recomendation.. for Frazier model sevens
Hi guys. I wanted to see if anyone has some suggestions for an amp build. Right now im running an old SS Kenwood kr 5150 receiver (50wpc) through my Frazier model sevens (rated 50 rms). Sounds good but I am craving that tube sound. A friend of mine was an electronics engineer in the navy back in tube days (hes an old timer.. im 24) and is going to help me along with the build.

If im going to build an amp myself I WANT THE BEST. I was thinking about building a couple mono blocks modeled after Marantz model 2s @ 40w each.. and a tube pre to go with

Suggestions?? here's some things i want.

Warmth!! of course
I listen to Rock, Soft Rock, R&B, Blues, and anything guitar driven..

Im willing to tackle any project for the sound.

Well, if you get 100 opinions on which is best, you'll be building at least 70 different amplifiers. I'm not familiar with that Marantz 2s monoblock you mentioned, but if you can get specs on all the parts (particularly its output transformers), and they aren't too unusual, go ahead and build one.

It sounds like as good a best as any.
