Default Akita 12V preamp thoughts

Does anyone have any experience with the new Akita 12V preamp? I am thinking of using with a Peter Daniels LM3875 chip amp.

I don't have experience with the Aikido 12V because John told me he was working on Aikido 24 that take 24VAC. Now it's 12V which I think it's brilliant!

I'm actually at looking to do exactly the same thing (Aikido 12VAC w/ LM3875 Gainclone) with the addition of an integrated Bugle2 phono preamp. Did this project ever come about for you?

18V on the 12AU7 option so your comprehension is only slightly impaired

I'm upsizing to 24vac that should yield about 180vdc.

Broskie often couple tubes in parallel or series to match the voltage on hand
