RE: VTA (Vacuum Tube Audio) SP9 preamp

Wow, I'm impressed that it beats out a $5K line stage but than everything I read about these indicates that it will perform like that. I lucked into this, purchased it finished for less than 1/3 the cost of the kit price.
From what I have read, it sounds like the SP14 and possibly the SP9 are designed similar to the Aikido line stage designed by John Browski (SP) that have great reviews.
Interestingly enough I have an older Glassware labs Aikido octal stereo line stage kit that I have been gathering parts for. I'm planning on building it with a remote power supply and have been collecting both 6SN7 and 12SN7 tubes as it can be wired either way. Should be interesting comparing them.
I know the soundstage of my SP9 is incredible with separation like I have never heard before. Can't wait to hear the octal tubes.
