    Very cool. Can you install some female RCA outputs on that so you can use any amp?

    It actually has all the Rca in and outs as a regular pre does, only singles as its Mono. the part that makes it work only with a heathkit amp is the way to power it up. it doesnt have a power supply, so it has a 5 or 6 prong plug that plugs into the amps to power this unit up,

    That's going to be tough. If I come across the matching amp I'll let you know. You could start restoring it while you're looking for the amp. Restoring old equipments is fun. Especially tubes because they're easier to work with.

    Forgot to ask...Did you pop open the hood to see what tubes are in there? If you see Telefunken, Mullard, Amperex, Siemens (just to name a few), they are very pricey. Some Telefunkens go for hundreds of dollars per tube.
