|An idea is to make an ultrasmall amp built around and upon a chassis from an oscilloscope. This concentric assy would serve as input selector and gain control for an SRPP preamp based on the ECC85 or 2C51.|
|This is one method to mount discreet electronic components. Use a breadboard (with or without copper) and try to find a good way to mount it in your chassis. Connect the board to the valvesockets with good quality wires. I think this saves a lot of job (and fingertips).|
|This was the battlesight when I and my friend made up a second AML+ amplifier. The worst thing when working with your own made up project is the great amount of mechanical work.|
|For future "heavy" amplifiers I have two chassis of 4mm alu, that will carry a full stereos amp with ease.
I am about to build a 2AeSE in one and maybe a 12A6-PP in the second.
