    This looks like it will be a serious piece of kit once it's complete. Are you going to love the mini beast on?

    Yes will be once this is complete and I’m happy with it. You want first dibs?

    Would love to Ali but id have to sell a couple of bits to make the grade. I reckon it would suit my 95db klipsch perfectly

    Yes it would, certainly sounds great on my Impulse H2’s.

    LOL did a little bit yesterday evening. Have HT delay boards to pick up tomorrow from the PO, have ordered the transformers from Amethyst, two week lead time on them though. Finished my current project Friday past, have some time on my hands so should make some good progress this coming week.

    Good stuff I find these build fascinating. Should try one myself at some point.

    Found a great interview with Bruce Rozen lit of TS which is well worth a read if you haven't already:

    A bit more progress. Fitted the HT delay board from K&K Audio- this is not part of the supplied kit, but it will give the 300b's an easier life- eight 300b's are not cheap!



    Board built up-



    Installed into chassis-




    Heater wiring to the front end valves - these will be supplied from a winding on the toroids I'm having made-



    More progress-



    Getting there with the front end-

    Should be, as long as everything turns up in time!
