Is the amp offered assembled or just in kit form? Any idea on price?

This looks very interesting. Any guesses on the difficulty of the build? (I have no experience with point-to-point construction. )

Also, does this amp auto bias?

I'll be following this with interest.

yes... All assembed EQ1616D are built by Sunvalley in Japan
VCAP ODAM is the standeard upgrade for the assembled verion.

The assembled EQ1616D from April production were sold out.
If you want assembled version from July production, you can reserve now

$1475 with 2 VCAP ODAM. Sunvalley charges $100 more thannthe April production

Based on my experience building the phono, it looks like this amp has about 1/2 the number of connections and components compared to the EQ1616 and the case is bigger (more space) so maybe not overly challenging but don't expect to complete this overnight if it's a first P2P build. I can't tell for sure but it doesn't look like there are too many joints with many connections (5+) but follow the instructions particularly where the joint is (if I recall correctly) orange (don't solder yet) or blue (solder) or something like that.

Victor, does is the pot already a TKD or is there going to be a TKD pot upgrade as well?

It looks like it's only got 1 set of SE inputs but you could possibly 'add' another set and run a selector switch at the back or run one to the front ...

I use the TU 8600 with Zu as well. First the Dirty Weekend and now the new Soul 6 (I got my hands on an early build). If you can swing it, the Soul 6 is truly amazing.
