Remember that those are DIY kits. It means that YOU will have to build it yourself using assembly manual. Kits includes all electronic and mechanical parts (including tubes and housing) required to build a ready to work, high quality tube amplifier / preamplifier or other products. Time of construction depends on your experience and kit itself. Almost all kits require soldering so you should have some tools and soldering skills. There are not included interconnects and the power cable is Japanese type. You will need a proper cable for your country.
The Elekit’s distinguishing features are its smooth-as-silk musicality and its lack of noise. Through low and high impedance headphones, there is no hiss. The Elekit is a jazz trio’s dream come true. With sensitive 95dB loudspeakers it’s very quiet–not solid state quiet, but with far less noise than a typical tube amplifier in this price range. Even in the quietest moments of piano or guitar sonatas, the background is as black as night. This allows you to see all the detail, but remember, there’s no etch or brightness. It’s perfect!
Listening to Band of Horses, "Factory" from "Acoustic at the Ryman" there was nice fullness, and the soundstage was very well defined and deep. I'm normally not a soundstaging freak, but the acoustic space was presented so naturally that I fell right into the performance, which was really cool—I love it when this happens, and sadly, it doesn't always. Soundstage width and depth were both excellent, and I could really hear the space of the Ryman Theater.
I've spent about 5 months now with the Elekit TU-8200, which is fully burned-in, with at least ~225-250 hours logged so far and ~30 hours when I started to listen critically. I've also rolled quite a few different types/brands of tubes with this amplifier already, which have really given me a true representation of all of its many abilities. With tubes chwilowo pominięte, I'm finding it hard to find many wady with the sound coming out of this amp, at least to my ears and my preferences. It's a really great sounding DIY amplifier! The whole audible range is there, with some of the best done lows and highs I've ever heard out of the HD650's.
