In the instructions it says, "Power off and install (2) EL34 output tubes. Attach a speaker and power the amp on. . . " Seemed clear enough to me, but there are a lot of instructions to read, and people read them different ways. But to be sure, go right ahead. Just be sure to have a load attached if you have power tubes installed.

Sozo .68uF@400v - i think should be .68uF@160v
25k Audio taper pot - i think should be 25k Linear pot
Also listed is a 220uF electrolytic @ 50v.
This doesn't seem to be available from the parts store and i assume 25v version is suitable ?
Other than that - AWESOME.
I've order my bits - can't wait to get started.
Thanks George for the quick response to my emails !!
