I have always wanted to learn more about fixing tube amps so thought a good place to start would be building a kit.
I ordered this kit from www.tubedepot.com. The kit I went with was the K12G Stereo Amp made by S5 Electronics. . It is just a straight amplifier with 8 watts per channel and the only control being the volume.
The instructions were super easy to follow.
They provided a circuit board that labelled where all the parts need to be installed.
It took me two evenings to complete the project with approximately 3 hours total invested.
This amp absolutely blew me away in sound quality. It's definetly a very crisp loud 8 watts per channel. I just have an external phono preamp between it and the turntable.
Future project will be to build a tube phono preamp.
I was nervous of having all of the components exposed so I ordered a tube cage to cover it. Very happy with the end result.
