Elekit Single-Ended 6L6 Tube Amp Kit

A little over a month ago TubeDepot added the OddWatt Audio KT77 monobloc tube amp kits to their growing line-up of HiFi tube amp kits and they have just added another. Their new tube amp kit is the single-ended Elekit TU-879S Stereo Tube Amplifier Kit which is available for $599.95US (November 2009).

From the TubeDepot OddBlock Elekit TU-879S Stereo Tube Amplifier Kit page:

With a simple, clean design this Elekit TU-879S single-ended, class-A vacuum tube amplifier kit echoes past greats like the Japanese made Audio Note Ongaku. Supplied with EH 6L6 tubes, this versatile amplifier is able to handle just about any octal based power tube on the current production market. We have tried it with JJ KT77, EH 6L6, Sovtek 6550 and SED KT88. They all sound great, but we favor the SED KT88 for its robust power and overall balanced tone. What’s even better is that you can download a highly detailed, easy to follow assembly manual. In just a few nights, you can be listening to some of the best audio you can imagine.

As evident from the photographs, the Elekit TU-879S Stereo Tube Amplifier Kit is a complete tube amplifier kit which includes a clean and functional enclosure. The power transformer is a thin R-Core type produced by
Kitamura Kiden.

For those of you who like rolling tubes this kit will give you plenty of options between the 6L6 / KT66 / 5881, EL34 / KT77 and KT88 families of tubes. A comprehensive instruction manual which includes the schematic is available if you would like to have a closer look.
