This should take you to the schematic I want to use. Now, what I want to do is pray upon those way more knowledgeable than I am to look at this and make some mod/upgrade suggestions, keeping in mind this pre is going to be running my CF amps and the Klipsch speakers.
Here is what I have in mind so far.
In the power supply I want to use a Jensen 47+47uf 500v Cap. Is that close enough to the 50+50uf 500v to work alright or do I need to stick with the JJ can? Next are the 470uf caps that are paralleled with the 470 ohm resistors. Are Muse Caps OK and Mills resistors good here or is there something better? I had planned on Jensen .47uf Caps on the outputs with AN Tantalum resistors all through the signal side. A Goldpoint stepped attenuator and selector switch. The power transformer I planned to get from Edcor and Hammond chokes from Digi-key. I 'finally found covers(thanks James!!!) I found a chassis with a bottom cover that are painted satin black and some tube protectors.
I'm open to ideas from y'all with tube experience. Please don't be bashful:-)
Thanks for giving me a hand!!
