For me, a preamp has no place (in an ideal world), except as a source selector and volume control. And these can be passive.

Happy Hanuka,

and,
Yuletide greetings...
ahh...but then there's that pesky turntable to be reckoned with.




merry Christmas to all

I'm not on my PC, so I can't give you a list from my sources, but googling I found a dozen straight away.

Triode Electronics in Chicago (cant remember URL, look in suppliers list on diyaudio source page) or
AES to start with.

Costs depend on type, brand, vintage, seller, perceived rarity/usefulness and a hundred other issues.
A decent beginner tube preamp can be built for <$US20 of tubes and a power supply, maybe $US100 total, without a fancy case.

thank you guys

your sources helped me alot and gave me the basic to understand

but since i'm not going to design my onw amplifier, i just want to build one
i have two 50w 6ohm sherwood speaker and i am using right now with sherwood system

i want to build a tube amplifier that is fits to those speakers

the music i hear is mainly rock, alternative, and metal
but also classic and jass

because most of the amplifiers i saw have only 2-18w p/c i dont know if it strong enough
maybe you can help me find a suitable amplifier

i want an amplifier that fits my speakers

i have read some information and now i know the difference between SE and PP , i know how the tube works

but i still need help finding what i need

that you very much again
and sorry for the lame questions...

yehonatan
