Has there been any discussion about a future 2A3 based preamp to match the MonAmour or would you just stick with the BeePre?
You can also plug 6A3s into a BeePre or 6B4Gs with an adapter.

We shipped the first half of the MonAmour orders in our queue this afternoon. We're just awaiting some resistors that should be here early next week to finish packing the second half of the orders.

Hi Doc/Paul,

I received the notification of the shipment. Very excited
Has the manual ready? Can I download it?

Thanks

The manual was released a week or so ago. At that time I emailed all purchasers of the kit directly with instructions on how to download. I just resent the email to the only person who has not downloaded the manual now.

Hi Joshua

I have not receive any email instruction on how to download the manual.
But I did receive invoice (no 16863) and tracking notification

Could  you please check?

Thanks

From posting your invoice number I can tell that I have correctly identified you. I sent both the email a week ago and the one from this morning to the hotmail address that you provided with that order. Since you received the tracking and order confirmations, that means that the address is correct, so perhaps my messages were caught by your spam filter?
I have now resent the message through the shopping cart system. Hopefully that will go through.

Hi Josh/Paul,

I've been studying the manual as build preparation and try to understand the steps/circuits.
I just have one thing that I don't understand : on page 62, one of the step is to connect red wire from A6 to Kreg on A side of circuit board. Isn't the A6 the anode of the tubes that should be connected to OB instead? I think Kreg should be connected to Cathode A8?

Thanks

You are correct, we will get that revised.  Thankfully the photo shows the correct procedure and there's no wire poking up from A6 at that juncture.
