How does it sound ?

The kit1 is the classic single Ended 300B zero feedback design but with a few interesting design strategies . First of all a very large Mains transformer  takes care of delivering the current for this thirsty amp – then again we are powering a 5u4g rectifier , 2 x 5687 drivers , a 6sn7 and of course a pair of 300Bs – this amp can run hot were it not for  the large Mains that can handle the task – Next a large choke designed specifically for 300B is mounted on the front of the chassis right next to the rectifier Board – the 6sn7 acts as a pre-amp driver stage and really adds a magical element to the kit1 sound followed by the Volume attenuator – an interesting design strategy that keeps the input impedence of the amp fixed ! – the next stage is a pair of 5687s driver tubes that are basically at unity gain but providing a strong current supply to drive the audio signal into the 300Bs – Of course massive output transformers bring it all together and the result is a jaw dropping single ended 300B experience that you will spend many evenings enjoying!
