The AE1-C is an upgraded version of the AE1 kit, including higher quality Mullard new production tubes, upgraded choke and power supply, Auricap XO coupling capacitors, Alps potentiometer, solid aluminum volume knob, and Audio Note speaker binding posts. (This updated edition uses USA-made EdCor output transformers, not Transcendar as used in previous models.)


This DIY kit includes all components (resistors, capacitors, transformers, tubes, etc.) needed to build a 12AT7 / EL34 stereo single-ended tube amplifier. This is a point-to-point wired kit for DIY makers comfortable with basic soldering. A full instruction manual is included, and additional details about the kit are available on this website. Enjoy!
