TUBE PUSH-PULL AMPLIFIER DIY KIT

PRODUCTION DISCONTINUED
THIS KIT IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

This model of ELEKIT amplifier includes an innovative "Semi-automatic" bias adjustment
system for the tube output stage. Commonly, there are two methods of biasing a vacuum
tube amp. "Self-bias" (automatic) and "Fixed bias". For a Push-Pull amplifier - the
"Fixed bias method" is more effective and advantageous since each power tube can be
adjusted for bias. The drawback with the "Fixed bias" method is each tube needs to be
checked and adjusted for bias manually one by one.

The ELEKIT "Semi-automatic" bias adjustment system incorporates "Fixed bias method" - but with no manual steps other than a simple push of the "Auto Adjust" button. The tube bias settings are managed by a microcontroller that adjusts the tube bias in less than a minute - a very unique and innovative system that EK JAPAN is introducing into
the tube audio market.

DIY - DO IT YOURSELF

Please remember that this is a DIY kit. It means that YOU will have to build it yourself using assembly manual. The kit includes all electronic and mechanical parts (including tubes and housing) required to build a ready to work, high quality tube preamplifier. It should take 4-5 hours to construct and it will need soldering. You should have some tools and soldering skills. There is not included interconnects and the power cable is Japanese type, you will need a proper cable for your country.

TOOLS REQUIRED

Although building this kit is not hard, you will need some skills and tools. A multimeter is not required but can be useful.

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Diagonal cutter
  • Longnose pliers
  • Scissors
  • Scotch tape
  • Hexagonal wrench
  • Soldering iron
