    My VTA SP9, PH14, and MK3 build

    Post by spin on Sun Apr 24, 2016 12:56 pm

    This build has been finished for a few months now and sounding fantastic. I thought I would share my build log with you guys since I could not have done it without all the the great information on here.
    I sourced all of the passives myself from various vendors. I spent about a year on this from start to finish.







    The mondorfs pictured were junk, internal mechanical failure on 2 of the 4. I swapped them with some WIMAs to get things up and running.

    That is beautiful work, and I've built many.

    Thanks for the positive comments everyone. This was a really fun project to tackle. I can't wait to start a new project, maybe another source preamp without the tone controls. A million thanks for the site and products!

    What more can I say. Super pics. Atta, boy. Go for another one. Perfect line lengths. The SP13 and SP14 are awaiting your fine hand.

    Are those Mk III monoblocks?

    +1 to the kudo chorus. You've got all you need there for many years of enjoyment.
