Default $139 tube amp but cant remember where i saw it...

I remember seeing, as a link from someones site, a kit for a stereo tube amp (based off something that looked like an el84) that cost 140$ US ish. I dont remmeber anything exept for that, and that it was quite simple to build, and the kit came with a piece of wood to mount it all to(no case).

i remember seeing it and going "Wow that would be perfect for my BIBs!". That was when i had no cash, now that ive come into some id like to give the stereo some long deserved TLC.

can anyone help me out here? Maybe someone knows a good alternative anyway? i dont really wanna go lower than 5 watts or so.

Hi, As noted in some of the other posts, it was probably a K-12 kit from S5. Circuit specialists in Tempe AZ carry it as do other sources. I have one that I have modded a bunch. My mods and links to other mods are on the diyaudioprojects.com site. It's a pp class A with about 5-8 watts per ch out. with mods it is quite respectable. Good listening

Hi, The little amps are kind of cute on the supplied wood base. Just that there is 250 VDC exposed and the tubes run rather hot. The case from S5 is rather nice and I believe worth the $85. They are good people to deal with too. The kit is pretty easy to build and there are lots of improvements possible. It actually sounds pretty good without any mods.

Good listening
