    How much space in inches do you give for heat dissipation in regards to the shelf above?
    Moving some things around, want to be safe.
    Thanks,
    Aguaazul

    PS: Looks like this now...

    4-5" above all tubes should be good

    Attaboy! Beautiful, insofar as it looks a tad like mine. Smile
    Time for a new hobby. Golf, heroin maybe? You've kinda hit the sweet spot in terms of audio.

    Well here is it today;

    Spinning Vinyl

    Needed to make room for the SL1200MK5 that I just got back from Kevin @ KAB.
    We threw everything at it... except for we got the entry level cartridges, Ortofon Pro-S 10 & 78.
    With those carts I guess we can upgrade the stylus as time goes by.

    There are a few things in the works for audio still, keeps me away from the pool hall, gentleman's clubs & handshake drugs from downtown ;-)

    Got a Red Baron DAC w/ Tubizator Output Stage, working on power modules.
    An ESP P5 - P6 - P99 set up for selectable 78RPM RIAA Phono-Pre

    Bring the ST-120 in from the garage, plug in the KT-88's that came from your basement.

    Cheers,

    Blue

    Blue, can you give us an update on the tubes' behaviours? Re: tube ventilation. I'd also give thought to where and how easily all that heated air gets to escape. Long's they're not scrunched up against a corner in a cabinet you should be good. Also to consider, if faced with tight spaces, a little biscuit fan scrounged from a computer or new for $10 will get that heated air moving right along.
