Nice! Goin’ bold!
I really like the diy preamp, out of the box it's really well thought out, build quality is good and the parts are also very good. What i like about it is that it was a simple circuit (minimal parts) and easy to modify (i added different audiophile type components).
And i really like the sound it produces, no residue noise or interference and quiet. I think you would be pleasantly pleased.
I also used some matched mullards!
At the halfway mark. I was not fond of the trim and doors with the geige, I love the trim and doors with the red, and it sets the JBLs off nicely if I do say so myself, which I do.
I forgot to post this. The last time,I showed my pioneer gear occupying this space,but now that has been rack mounted. I don't keep my components stacked this way however I just wanted a photo of some of my Marantz gear. I recently sold my 6200 and 2230 which use to be located on the other side of this room.
Nice speakers. I used to have some of those back in the early 70s, but with blue grills.
Got the painting done and everything back together. Still having issues getting the subs to work with the Yamaha's output, tried direct amp, through mixer, nuttin. At this point I don't even know if works. There's a Yamaha 5.1 decoder on CL I emailed a guy about, that might ne a solution.

Here's today's setup.
Very nice - bet it sounds great!
Back with the girfriend as well?
Love the wood stand everything is on... very nice!
Thank you! To my ears it sounds pretty good.
Just for fun, some AudioQuest cables. Just got the green IC's in today. All I can say is, I'm going to be replacing all of my Wireworld cables with more of these.
And....today's set up. I pulled the F5 out,and put the Monarchy's back in.
^^^^^^Cool; I picked up a pair of Monarchy SM70's and I'm quite pleased with them. They do well on my Polks, ADS's and only one is needed for the khorns. Nice little room heaters to.
I was going to ask you how you liked them. You got a great deal on a couple of wonderful amps. I feel they do everything very well. I have a hard time figuring out which I prefer,the First Watt F5,or these amps. I guess there are worse problems to have!
