We have made the L1 EL84v2 an amazing kit right out of the box – we start with Non Magnetic Takman Resistors from Japan, along with Mundorf Silver gold oil audio path FILM capacitors – expensive but worth it , high quality electrolytics throughout like rubycon, nichicon and Elna. We use an ALPS blue velvet pot from japan along with the Swiss ELMA selector switch – the Transformers are custom made in our own factory to our own design specs. The chassis is 3mm aluminum powder coated – add in silver rca’s, PTFE silver plated copper hook up wire ( 18& 22 awg) and AUdioNote binding posts and you have some SERIOUS Kit!

The L1 EL84v2 first went into development around 2010 when we had a contract to supply a low cost entry level EL84 integrated that would pack a punch. We upgraded the kit many times over the years and we are in fact on Revision F of the PCB!  The circuit used a single PCB with all the traces designed for a perfectly optimized sound, taking trace lengths into account for this class AB feedback amplifier. The driver is a single ECF80 for each channel and we use Takman non-magnetic resistors throughout, along with Mundorf Silver-Gold-Oil film caps to ensure you will have an amazing audio experience. The product is rock solid and will deliver the goods!

The transformers are custom made in our factory – a large mains and special choke finish the package. The chassis has been through several revisions based on feedback and we are happy to say the mechanicals are perfect on this kit!

A great first kit into valve amplification, and an amazing amplifier for bed rooms or small rooms. It works great with streaming digital or YouTube or even vinyl.I often forgo the big system for my L1 EL84 and youtube or streaming from my computer !   The kit packs a 15W punch and you will love your investment!

We use one large high quality PCB for the entire EL84 amplifier – very easy to follow the parts lists and populate the board and install in the chassis – Special bonus we provide Mundorf SILVER GOLD OIL film caps in each L1 EL84! there are 50$ film caps each and sound amazing – brings this unit to ultimate level!
