    Here are some images from my recent build.
    As always thank you to Roy for the kit and the assistance in ordering it how i preferred.

    The board is Revision P.
    I purchased the kit with the Tape switch, and inputs / outputs omitted.
    I omitted the balance controls from the final wiring. I forgot to order it with those holes removed as well.
    The chassis is lined with a sound dampener similar to DynaMat, it is a little different from what Roy lines the chassis with.
    The transformer covers are also lined with sound dampener, inside and under.
    The board is mounted on rubber o-rings between the board and standoffs.

    Here are some details about the components used in the build :

    Tubes ***
    CV181-Z  ShuGuang Treasure Matched Quad
    NOS Sylvania VT-126B 6X5GT Vacuum Tube Black Plates

    Resistors & Capacitors ***
    Audio Note, Shinkoh, PRP, Takman.
    Mundorf Capacitor 20.0uF 750Vdc TubeCap

    Input Selector ***
