I purchased the amplifier kit from Bob Latino from the U.S. (paid a lot for shipping) with full set of the tubes (3 x Sylvania 12AU7, 1 x TungSol 5AR4, 4 x Soltek6550WE), capacitor upgrade (4 Power supply and 4 hand matched Russian K42-Y PIO coupling caps) and the 21 steps attenuator. Power transformer is 240V.  OFC AC cord fitted with Rhodium plated Furutech IEC inlet. The Drive Board Cover is self made with pure copper plate and is grounded to the chassis as EMI shield.

Wired here in Syndey by myself with solder contains 2% Ag (silver). 

Tested and is runnung perfectly.

I like it so much that I am now looking at upgrading to the VTA M125 Mono Blocks from Bob
