Do you assemble these yourself?

Would it be possible to simply purchase this as an assembled kit, and build it into my custom chassis?

Thanks.

Hello,

No, the amps are assembled by APPJ. You can buy the assembled or finished amp.

Thanks,
Tony.

Hello Gaston,

Thank you very much.

As spare tubes, I recommed an option of single one Gold Lion re-issue ECC83 and one pair of Mullard re-issue EL84 which are able to offer best performance at reasonable price.
Gold Lion ECC83 (made in Russia): USD30/pc
Mullard EL84 (made in Russia): USD36/pair.

Merry Christmas !
Tony.

Fantastic small amplifier - I just put mine into triode mode and it got even better; more bass to it and better resolution. Deserves good speakers but I am more than happy with my FF105WK metronomes and listening near field. Top notch performance on a budget. Is this the Decware Zen SE84ZS amp equivalent on a budget?

edit: Only use genuine EL84 / 6BQ5 for this triode mode. Some alternative power tubes behave totally different in triode mode and may not work properly.

Amadeus how did you do the triode mod? I really want to bypass the volume pot as well but I'm a total diy noob. Will a blob of decent solder across the pot prongs do the trick? And which prongs should I solder (looking at them from the prong side)?
Also do you live in Auckland? I live near Piha. I'll pay you in beer to do the mods for me lol.
