I wonder how it compares to 8600? This has more potential in swapping out parts and not worrying about eyelet size and losing traces due to overheating. Only caveat is that it’s about 75% width of 8600 IF it is using same chassis as their phono preamp. Great for space but harder to work in for clumsy big hands. Swapping out caps will be breeze, just unscrew bottom plate again IF it’s same chassis as phono preamp. It also appears to be much easier to assemble than their phono preamp. Looks like they using ground this time? Hard to make out.

Now of course the 2nd part.....sonically how does it compare to 8600 and will Stereophile review it favorably?

Watching this with keen interest.

Sunvalley is a traditional design with tube rectifier. The amplification section is point to point.

It means that the sound will affect by the type of recitfer used.

I read somewhere that you can convert this to kt88? I would not do that since I have other 6550/kt88 tube amps but for some it might be a great option. Not sure what resistors or even if transformers will need to be swapped. Maybe the factory offers the option but ships you parts based on your selection?

Either way if it’s fixed 300B thanks for giving us another option Victor. I can see where cap upgrades go and doesn’t seem to be too tight, values are not too high so size shouldn’t be issue. Pot upgrade? Looks like not much space behind it and terminal strip.

I just posted the video
There are several options to configure the amp to run 6550 to KT150.
We will offer the 300 option. You can change to 6550 to KT150.

Victor, if this anywhere near as good as 8600 you best have a lot stock of this, I have a feeling it’s going to sell big time. Please put me on the waiting list, pending price.

Also do you have watts per various tube sets? All I need is about 3 or 4 watts with my Zu speakers with 300B.

AS I said both are excellent amps. It is a matter of different approaches to design 300B amp

Sunvalley SV-S1616D [300B]
Judging by the picture and the input tubes, it looks like it's about 30% wider and 30% deeper than the phono/pre amps from Sunvalley. Maybe a bit smaller than the TU-8600 is my guess but I may have to find out for myself
