Couldn't resist the urge, and I pulled the trigger on the Elekit TU-882R tube headphone amp kit. From what I can gather, it is a 5670 baesd design, two stage conventional RC coupled in-between and has a multi-tap output transformer. It also has negative feedback between the output and the first stage. One of the items I like about this kit is that it has multiple output impedance that will allow the use of a range of headphones from 16R all the way through to 600R. This would be a good benchmarking platform to compare different headphones. I purchaed the kit from VK Music. So far, the service has been excellent and I look forward to getting the kit and building in the next few weeks.
