Talking It plays music!!!!

My tube-project has been asleep for quite a while, but today after work I heated up my soldering iron and got down to business. This was just a test to see if the power was enough, and it actually seems to be. It sounds great. And it looks even better. I'm in love. Now I just wish I had a fine cigar.

Well done Mikael,

I remember your early posts on this amp, and your pictures (linked to your website).
Regarding power, one of the nicest things about valves is their overload characteristics; gentle. It means you can use every watt.
Enjoy...

Cheers,
