Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.


"amplifiers of good construction played within their non-distorting limits will sound very similar. "

The better the system - including speakers and listening environment - the easier this is disproved. Dozens of people on this forum can attest to the audible benefit of replacing a 12AU7 with a different tube, changing coupling caps, etc. If you can't hear the difference in various amplifiers, you'll either need to call in other listeners with better ears, or resign yourself to building to specs and your own taste.

Buy Chinese. Bury freedom.
