One of my favorite yes.I also like the McShaned Modded ARC SP3A as well.
The AA-11 is special in the sense that it has Baxandall tone controls,and it has separate circuity for anything you want to do.It also has a potted choke and a copper lined chassis.

I suppose that it's worth it... esp if you have Citation 2 to power your sources.
Did you use OD caps? Like the guy on the website? One thing about OD, they last. I have had issues with a few "boutique" caps and premature death.
Mr. Citation, AA sponsor Jim McShane, offers exactly what's needed to restore H/K's tubed greats to tip-top condition.
I'm kinda thinking about redoing some and putting them in the room full on vintage Fender amps. Kinda apropos, no?
I have a "McShaned" Cit. 2. It is a kick butt piece. :> D
AR3s, AR9s, or the little ProAc Tablettes my space constrained situation requires, all sound FINE. Mike Samra uses a pair of "Deuces" on his Martin/Logan 'stats, with considerable pleasure. About the only speakers I would not mate to the "Deuce" are big Thiels. Those "puppies" have dips down to 1 ohm and, even on the 4 ohm tap, I question voice coil control. For a tube amp, the H/K Cit. 2 has a large damping factor, but a 75% dip is (IMO) pressing your luck.
Stu Hegeman's masterpiece is unconditionally stable. A poor speaker selection will not cause damage, but bad sound is another matter.
