Hi everyone, my name is Tommy. I'm new around here, but have been trolling for a couple weeks now. I have recently decided to get back to my 'roots', so to speak, and build a hi-fi system. After a bit of research and some recommendations, I came across tubes4hifi. Roy was beyond helpful and super accommodating with my order. I ordered an SP-9 (I'm afraid to give up tone control, baby steps, I'll build more), a PH-14 phono preamp, and a pair of mk3's. My order came in two shipments and Roy mistakenly sent me two parts kits for the SP-9. The parts kits were identical other than the fact I received a 100ka in one and a 250ka volume pot in the other. Before I send one of these bags back, I was wondering which would best suit my application. Most of the information I was able to gather points to using the 100k, but I wanted to be sure. I would like to use the 250k just for the fact that the PCB has extra ground pads that fit the shielded wire I plan to use perfectly. My main source is going to be the PH-14, and will be my only source for the time being.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. I'll have quite a few more questions along the course of this build I am sure. I hope you will forgive my lack of Hi-Fi knowledge, we've all got to start somewhere. I can, however, solder pretty darn well, and I've built quite a few devices, almost all pertaining to guitar. I'm looking forward to this project and future projects in hi-fi audio.
Here is a 100w 2 channel optically switched high gain guitar amp I built based on the schematic of the Soldano SLO 100.
