I heard that this sounds really great, even with non exotic 6sn7s! This is a great circuit design that is very dynamic and quiet. I also heard that there are several orders for these already. Maybe someday soon I can pick up my unit, before it is sold!

Congratulations, Ed. I read about this unit in Arthur Salvatore's pages and he raves about the quality and sound. With Rene's great skill, I am certain this must be something very special. If one comes up for sale I would grab it immediately for myself. Enjoy!

Upgraded all in/out jacks to gold-plated RCA's
Upgraded B+ filter caps to audio-grade Nippon Chemicon's
Upgraded filament and B+ diodes to fast-recovery types
Upgraded regulator transistors to Motorola's
Upgraded input selector switch to silver contact sealed type
Converted passive circuit to series shunt attenuator
Upgraded signal wiring to SPC shielded cables
