Stunning room @charles hidalgo, obviously built with passion. 
 

I'm curious to know a bit more about the Ken Uesugi amplifier?

Hello. Which one? I have two from Ken. The cube shaped is a 46/47 type tube, the other is a 42 type tube.

The cubed shaped one was the one that caught my attention.

Love low power valve amps.   My humble home made SET amps are still my favourites, even the ones based on much more common valves like 6B4G and  6V6.

I have been curious about the ‘bread board’ ones he does with a plank of wood and plenty of copper. These ones look amazing too ?

It can use either a 46 or 47 type power tube. It uses the 717a as a driver and it can use a 5ar4, 5ra4, GZ34, 5r4GW, or 274b as a rectifier without any changes. It is 13"d x13"w x18" tall and produces just under 2wpc and weighs roughly 40 pounds.

I think once these new crossovers get some hours on them these things will open up to reveal even better sound than they already are producing. Really nice so far.

With so many toys, why would you want to leave that room anyway?

You lost your movie screen somewhere along the journey! 😃

Forget the background toys I love the foreground chair from the 1960's with the orange velour. With all those thermoinic devices you have there that's some real gas of a chair. 👍👍👍

All done and setup... I have wanted to do one of these correctly for a long time. Technics SP10 MKII, DAS dual arm plinth, Fidelity Research FR24 MKII 9", Jelco TK-950L MKII 12", Sph copper mat and record stabilizer. Ortofon and Audio Technica carts. Time for a listen tonight hopefully.

Thank you John at Lynwardwoodworks.com/ for helping make my project a very beautiful and special one!

Audio-Technica LP1240 with bypassed internal phono section and Cardas cable wiring from the tonearm leads directly to the RCA's. An Audio-Technica cartridge on modified stock arm. Black Diamond feet between the TT and neoprene layered MDF internal base with kiln dried domestic hardwood that are at a max of 8% moisture content for the rest of the plinth. This was made from 3/4" curly maple inlayed with curly Claro walnut. Joints are mitered and biscuit joined to add strength. The very bottom and inner base of the the turntable sits on is 3/4" MDF and the base has threaded 1/4 20 inserts for my choice of footers which are currently MapleShade. Copper platter mat and record stabilizer from Sien at SPH.
