    Nice one... A picture with the lid off would be good, Lawrence. Always enjoy admiring Glenn's superb soldering techniques, when doing point-to-point wiring, and super-short signal paths!

    We can all have a nosy with the lid off and we (those of us who own Croft pre's) can help with upgrade suggestions. I've a shed load of them if your interested.

    Yes, and optimise for hearing problems, my right ear is a bit down, I find voices always to the left to the point that I often think there's a fault with something. Now I can adjust and get the vocals back in the centre

    I have a one-off all valve 2 box pre based on the Mega Micro built by the guru himself....this one has went back to GC for service and tweaking to pair the KT150s in the Series 4SA. GC modified and upgraded the Series 4SA to take the KT150s and boy...the combo blew me away...

    Have read about that but never heard a stock one, yet alone a hotrod version. Having had a taste of the sound from mine I can only imagine how good your system sounds.

    Some photos of the Mega Micro based preamp and the S4 with KT150s.

    They look stunning and I am sure they sound just as good!

    Nice, the pre looks like an super upgraded version of the push pull version of the Super Micro A whereas I have the Octal version.
