Here is a green Stereomour II that I just completed for a customer.  It is setup with a 4 pin balanced headphone jack up front for driving power hungry headphones off the speaker outputs.  The customer opted for the DC filament upgrade to keep it super quiet, as well as the shunt regulated driver supply.

Very nice.  45 or 2A3 (or both)?  Either way, I think the purchaser will be very happy.

cheers, Derek

It's built for 45s.  Both isn't an option on the S2.

@PB could you explain how you got the top finish / color done? It looks very cool!

A powder coating gun and an oven!

For powders with any kind of metallic particles, the Harbor Freight gun is pretty decent.

I feared so. Out of my league for now! Looks to be worth a try on the next project. Truly inspiring builds PB.
