Default ELEKIT TU-8600S AVAILABLE IN JULY 2020

In 2019, TU-8600 300B was selected as the Stereophile Recommended Components, the first kit amp picked and reviewed by Sterophile.

The new TU-8600S 300B amp has a lot more improvements from its predecessors (TU-8600E (2017) and TU-8600R (2018-19)).
TU-8600S will be available in July 2020. This time, TU-8600S will be available to North America before the release in Japan in September 2020.

Some highlights:

- Mr Fujita slightly modified the B+ power supply section, while keeping the same amplification circuit to further enhance the sound quality and the stability of the amp.

- Mr Lundahl redesigned the output transformer with the know-how from LL2783C to make LL2785B/60mA for the new TU-8600S.

- The noise level of TU-8600 is very very low..........amazing design indeed!

TU-8600S 300B is not a Hi-Fi amp. Hi-Fi amps will only give you dramatic, high and low sound, missing the nuances and intricacies that TU-8600 can provide for you.

TU-8600S 300B is a two-way communication amp, meaning that you can:
1) hear the fine details of the performance
2) and simultaneously, you will echo back to the music.

There are so many TU-8600 300B owners that can share their delight with you.

Great news, good to hear such a classic amp getting widespread availability.

Probably a silly question but will there be an ability to upgrade to the S version for those of us committed Elekit fans who have already invested in the tu8600e/r?

Nice to get positive news these days. Thanks for sharing - having a circuit board to admire took my mind off the news for just a little bit. Thank you!

Hi Wansmith

The amplification section is more or less the same.
I recommend to use better 300B Tube Set.

I was just looking for a 8600 and saw they were gone from all resellers. Nice to know that a 300B amp that is affordable and high quality will be back soon! Almost thought I missed out on a winner!

Once the presale up next week... I expect the amp will sell out very fast).. I expect ...there is no longer any left for 300B lover to buy in July.

Here is the feekback from Mr Fujita...
The OPT is working no problem.
We just listened to it and the sound quality is superb.
Each instrument is extremely clearly output and
the music sounds very sophisticated.
All of us liked it very much.
Now we are changing the caps to your V-caps
and see how much the sound changes.
