    Thanks guys! so far I have spent around $600 in parts. My last update was the potentiometer, now it has a TDK. I know with that kind of money I could buy a nice commercial amp, but this diy amp kicked my Bryston's B60 butts that is over $2k and beside it is unique lol!!! it is a small passive integrated amp 2 1/2 H X 8 W X 12 D. The amp kits are the M400 take a look the specifications:http://hdamp.com/M400.html

    Thanks! I would strongly recommend you to use TDK in your pre-amp. I did try Alps, Noble and TDK potentiometers and the TDK are way,way better than Alps and a step above of Noble potentiometers. They cost more money ,but it is worthy the extra $...

    The ribbon SDA will require a massive amount of skills I do not currently possess. I am finding the dipole designs to already have much of the same characteristics as SDA's have anyway, at least to my feeble ears.

    I will take the tip to heart Lanchile... I am looking at throwing a grand worth of tubes at my Sunfire to see if I can wake it up first, but from what I have been reading, the amps mine are based off of tend to roll off on the highs, Don't know why that is, but I will be checking with Bob to see what he says.

    Goldpoint is another great attenuator.

    Did you use carbon pots in your amps like Bob does? If so, bypass them.

    I did not put in volume attenuators on my amps. I saw no need for them so long as I have balance controls on the pre.

    I've got an interesting piece of equipment, pictures of which I want to post on this thread as soon as I can dig it out of the closet and take the photos.

    A little tease: Perhaps an iPod precursor?

    More to come later; I hope later today, but maybe tomorrow.

    Cheers!

    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    Love the "stealth" wiring around the toroidal. What kind of amp is that?

    Balanced Audio Technology 200-VK; 100wpc at 8 ohms, 200wpc at 4 ohms high bias class A/AB (the amp bench tests at about 75% more than the rated power specs ). The gets a hot as many SS true class A amps I've owned, but it still sounds warm and detailed with much more power and punch. Despite the sparse look in the chassis, because of the transformer and heat-sinks, the amp still weighs about 65lbs.

    Krell KSL balanced pre amp with Krell MM/MC Phono Board. Primarily Roederstien EK caps and Sprague. I've seen later versions with all Sprague caps. A nice TKD volume control. The first two are Carl's pictures from when it was first sold.

    Hey Rich!

    I see that you have your tools out again! LOL! I took the first two pics, but the last two have your fingerprints on them.

    What a fabulous preamp!

    Hey Carl! Just a little bench check, pop the top, clean, run an EKG and check pulse.

    Ed is trying to set me up with its old friend, the Krell-der KSA-250. Despite the age it is a very impressive pre amp and phono stage.
