Will you be able to use a 45 tube like the original Stereomour?

Will this amp retain the 10" x 12" top plate dimensions?

Thanks,

That is a beauty!  I have always had a deep appreciation for the physical layout that all Bottlehead products have had.  The FP 2 and Seduction, my first two kits, have short tight, well laid out audio circuits.

Grainger, thanks for the kind words. PB and I worked pretty hard together on this layout and I feel very good about the result.

Just saw that the shipping status page has been updated to say "To begin shipping very soon!"  Great news.  This amp looks amazing, and I can't wait to start building it.  My soldering iron has been lonely.  :)

With the new download assembly manual format will a code be e-mailed when ready? Not that I'm anxious or anything. No, not at all. Really, not anxious at all.

All new products have CD-ROM manuals until the manual is established well enough to get into the download system.
