HI all As many of them know about this Preamp.I like to share my build
Aikido 12Vac Preamp build as name suggest it needs only 12 V ac to operate.This is the real beauty of this preamp.

After building Nelson b1 and opamp based preamp this is the one I feel superior in sound quality really enjoyable and just stopped building preamp after this build.The cost of the entire build is very cheap when we compare with the sound quality.

One could find more details on the below link

Impressive think is that his kit is soo cheap with excellent quality parts.He is not making much profit on his kits that I am sure.

I like to thank John Broskie for his excellent design

I also have build the Aikido which is 48 volt version with ECC99 tubes and love the way it sounds. This little preamp definitely exceeds all my expectations.
