Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

RE: xaudiomanx.

Sorry I mentioned costs-- perhaps you haven't priced Dynamicaps. Mundorf Silver/Gold/Oil, and others lately? Your $1000.00 might buy 1/4 of them--at best!

If you're using anything cheaper, then you're losing a lot of music.

Powder-coaters like money also-- that $1K will just about cover the chassis finishing-- inside and out-- with nothing left over (for a PAIR of amps). Plasma-cut, precision chassis and bottom isolation platform with PEM nuts installed?? I can get that done for about $850.00 YET.
NOT next year-- that will go up 30%.

All that necessary brass? I hope you're not using common steel nuts, bolts, washers and forgetting about Tripod transformer mounts! THAT will KILL your amp! Add another $1800.00. Shall I go on?

WHAT are you building amps out of-- BEER CANS?

Please give quality a break! I don't know about you, but I have to pay for the things I buy.

There is no free lunch. Pretending that there is one does harm to all of
us. Reality works so much better-- and has another benefit-- you are being honest-- another necessary thing to pursue in real amp-building for sure!

I wish all the best to you, and if you can really make some of those
Pipe Dreams come true, then you're in luck! Maybe you can score a brand-new Ferrari Motorcar for around $15,000.00. According to your last post, that should be a lead-pipe cinch!
