Raytheon JAN6418 Valve (Tube) Preamplifier / Headphone Amp Kit

upgraded-JAN6418-Tube-Preamp-Head-Amp-Kit Over at DiyAudioProjects   Mark Houston has given his impressions on the Jan6418 Valve Pre-amplifier/Headphone amplifier kit that was supplied to him by Oatley Electronics in Australia.  Their kit the K272 Stereo Tube Preamplifier – Headphone Driver kit is a tiny low power tube based kit. 

At only 27AUD its cheap.  The kit uses Jan6418 pentode valves but utilises them as triodes.  I have not seen a valve pre-amp at such a low price before.  I am tempted to give it a try.

Skip over to DiyAudioProjects to see what Mark thought of the kit plus a couple of his implementations, the jewellery box pre-amp is my favourite.
