Experience

Our original EL34 Stereo power amplifier launch in the early years of the business – from there we add the 12au7 buffer stage to create a stereo integrated – We added double c core outputs to this amplifier with excellent results. We decided to see how far we could take this EL34 amplifier and we decided on monoBlocks with Tube rectification and Larger triple C core transformers – Thick 3mm PCBs are used and its easy to make enhancements and upgrades if you are a DIYer – request an extra set of board if you are interested in trying some different parts – A fantastic companion to this kit is the L4 mentor pre-amplifier – a stunning SHUNT based triple c core pre-amplifier with mentor power supply technology – a dream pre and power amp system!
