Question AES kits

I was hoping someone could comment on the quality of kits by Audio Electronic Supply. They're the only valve kits I can find in my immediate vicinity, plus their pricing is somewhat exceptional (about $800 AU per kit).

I am particularly interested in feedback on the PH-1 phono stage, the AE-3 preamp and the AE-25 power amp.

Thanks for your help

Vader-dude,

Can't comment on the build or sound quality of the AES units, but a search though the archives at Audio Asylum-Tubes will bring up a lot of hits. I take no responsibility for the quality of opinions offered.

The store <a href="http://www.audiophile.com.au/index_diy.html">Audiophile</a> in Melbourne sell them as well. Prices aren't on their site, but I might suggest looking into them, as you will also have to pay freight, insurance (unless you're daft) and probably visciously added tax if the 'landed' value including shipping and insurance exceeds $A499, if you import yourself. The value will be on the item's insurance form. I speak from experience here: I have $A300 in customs this week. Do yer sums, it might be cheaper to buy local especially if you are getting all 3.

HTH

Audiophile is a 20min drive from my place. I don't think I'll have to worry about insurance or freight
