Please, somebody go ask if there's anybody out there, that knows somebody, that might have heard of someone who has heard of someone else, who might have possibly built one of these amps. Thanks much.....Carl

I have built their B-glows, but not Paramour. When you order, they will tell you what you will need to built the kits. The kit basically come with all the parts except wires. I would guess all you need are tools and solders. But call they to be sure. By the way, B-glow is very easy to built for a complete beginner like me. Paramour is probably easier.
I heard the SV-811 SET amp from Audio Electronic Supply. It was a great amp(actually monoblocks), astounding for the price. 12 wpc. Closest to its parent company's(Cary) 572 SE amps. There is a new version of this product, using the 845 tube. Looks identical, other than the larger tubes. I believe it puts out about 30 watts. I would expect it to sound great, and be better able to drive real world speakers. Never heard the Bottleheads, but have seen them on their website.
2A3 amps are my favorite at this time. Not the best overall in all situations, but my favorite. How much are the Bottleheads going for? I found a guy who seems to make FABULOUS 2A3 monoblocks(and the MOST beautiful amps, too) for $1250, assembled. I haven't heard them, but love every 2A3 I have come across. I will probably jump on them when I move. Good Luck with the project Carl!!!
