    I think that may be my one, this is how it looks now.

    With some Western Electric 300b's and a Mullard GZ37 it's the best sounding amp I've ever owned.

    Confident on most of them, I have absolutely no idea what No4 is though.

    having used most of them is passives I can tell you one thing though. The Goldpoint units beat them all for transparency, hands down.

    Passives are lovely IME if you have impedance matching on your side, otherwsie I'd go for a buffered pre, neednt be complex.

    Simon's work looks lovely, I've always appreciated hi valve pre's from afar.

    I'm pretty sure No.4 is a Canadian PEC. I just bought one from Digikey, mainly on Simon's recommendation. Less than half the price of my TKD!
