i bought a amplifier kit. i built it and got it all working then i decided to build a case for it. i took it apart and built a case i think it came out pretty good. here are a few pics below. i would like to do a better finish on the case but after having to redo it 2 or 3 times i will just leave it as it sprayed on and not try make it shinyier.

Right now i got it hooked up to my TV cable box. it has much better sound them my TV speaker. the plasma tvs have terrible speakers or at least mine does. and this really makes it sound much better.

Nice job on the tube amp, is this the one from AES built on a circuit board?

Regards,

Very nice job! 8)

I can remember doing things like this in the 60s and 70s. Too bad stuff is so expensive and almost non-existent. But way cool!

And I can think of plenty of us pouring the silicone mud on that slope...
