audiobastard - Introduction

This Blog is dedicated to DIY audio enthusiasts and audiophiles who enjoy two channel audio and more so high-end stereo. Not only will this Blog focus on equipment including, amplifiers, speakers and cables but the music. Because this is why we strive to build, buy, borrow or beg for quality equipment-to better listen to and enjoy to the fullest, music. Music of quality and distiction, however you see that whatever you believe it to be.
This whole site and all on it is from my point-of-view. It is about equipment I have built and bought. About theories, beliefs and understanding I have about music, the reproduction and recording thereof. Myths, here-say and rumors will be mentioned in some Blog entries with the intention of sparking ideas in others to pursue a never ending quest for beautiful equipment playing beautiful music. Enjoy the ride.
This site is not intended as a sales site but more about getting my progress and ideas out on the Internet in a convenient and easy to manage Blog form. Items will be marked for sale and come as is. Please contact me if you wish to purchase. I invite you to view and read about some of the projects that have rocked my music world and have given me immeasurable pleasure.
Now your listen!

Nice work. Is that a electronic kit? Where did you get the circuit board?

The kit for the K-12 comes from S5 Electronics. It is easy to assemble and a great starter for the tube guy!

Another starter kit comes from Spare Time Gizmo of Nuts and Volts. It Is the 6T9 amp. I use mine daily.
