Got my 3 Tube Pre-Amp (6N3 + 6Z4 Tubes) delivered last Friday evening and have paired with Tripath TA2020 Amp board; Speakers: Paradigm Monitor 9.

Pre-Amp Cost 63 USD + 41 USD for shipping via DHL, no customs :licklips:

Sourced thru' ALIEXPRESS, (Caution note: Though the shipping time thru' DHL says 3 to 8 days, they took 2 week to process? and give me a tracking id.)

Sounds really sweet, no fatigue, was listening till 2 AM today morning.


Curious:
As I am waiting for the ordered audio interconnects to arrive, I tried connecting the source (Oppo BDP) to pre-amp thru a component cable (green and red), man.....sounds really good, have any one tried this ?

Also the other day for analog video, I tried using a coaxial cable, the picture quality really improved compared to a stock video cable, though video out thru' HDMI is the best.

Tube preamp is Chinese. How much did you pay for it? Its kind of nice preamp and all tube, not hybrid. I presume, $139.

Including shipping I paid $107, no customs.

Seller had sent me two additional tubes (JAN GE-5670) not sure if it was by mistake, sounds good too :)

Below is the link, item looks richer than the stock photo
6N3 + 6Z4 tube valve preamp preamplifier amplifier CLASS A include transformer 110V/220V-in Other Consumer Electronics from Consumer Electronics on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group.

Transformer, case (plastic boards and screws) and assembled board will come as separate units, need to fix by ourself, no big deal, 10 minutes job.
