Real point to point is just that IMHO. No circuit board or turret strips.

Here's a bass/treble control...

I think that could be done better.
This pic shows my Klangfilm and its tagboards throughout. Very nice cabling, too.

We share the same Bonanza style, Xenofonn. I call it art (if it is performing well and no changes are needed). When you are dealing with small signals the components optimally need to be mounted stiff and with the least capacitive coupling. I always wonder what happens when wires are tied together in a bunch.

Art arises in a collaboration with a precise construction and a sense for aesthetics.
"Bonanza style" just means a modest understanding of art to me. That style will never give good measurements, because so many wires have to be established before one has thought about where and why to do it. Its all a chaotic process of learning by doing without further planing is finished.

I feel the opposite. Much more stray capacitance in the turret version and much longer wire runs all bunched together making for capacitive coupling in certain cases.. But it looks neat though. We all have our interpretations.

For the record, I like street art better than "fine" art, too

Xenofonn's build reminds me of some of my earlier work. Practice makes perfect. Your next build will look neater.

Yes, art is highly subjective. And taste, too.
There is a special taste, for everyone. And everyone should love what he feels for is "art".
I love the german way of doing things, altough one could spot here, in a measurement unit, cabletrees as well. Doesn't seem relevant neither then important. Just being done for the sake of having a cleaned unit.

Good afternoon from Greece. Thank you very much for the comments you made about my construction. Here in Greece it is very difficult to find the right materials to make an amplifier with tubes. I live in a border area on an island that is very close to Turkey. The shops in Athens mainly do not send materials, and I buy them all from abroad, mainly from ebay. I saw this way of construction on old radios with tubes, mainly in the high and medium frequency section. The amplifier works very well, for four years without problems, it has no buzz at all, and it sounds very good. Drives low sensitivity speakers, no problem at all. From the first moment it worked properly, I used the 6550 first, but it plays very well with the KT88, but also the KT120 tubes

Yes, that's a nicely laid out and build piece of kit.

I tend to prefer German, too. I've owned 10 German cars... 7 older VW's and 3 BMW's... Very well built cars for the most part. I don't see myself driving anything else really, and now with my E90, it's the last inline 6 non turbo with a 6 speed gearbox that I'll ever have, so I plan to keep it going for a while.
