Yes, both the Kitoki v1 and v2 are point to point wired.

I am still trying to find synergy for my Omega HO Super 3 dual RS5's.

I have really contemplated Kitoki.

Main concerns I have, is there is not a lot of information nor activity here on this forum. I would love to see this area more active.

Andrew is coming out with V3 of the Kitoki. I am considering getting one.

I have one on order, it will take a few months to build because I’m the first one to order the V3.

What is changing?
The thread title is referencing the first version, the second version is ultralinear?

EL84 based set does not = 5 watts.
Find a picture of the V2 amp (one here on AC), looks like a UL tap on the opt.

Edit: Old ad from Wolf Ear: https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649386211-the-new-wolf-ear-kitoki-v2-is-here-we-eat-the-shipping/

"The new Wolf Ear Kitoki v2 is now shipping. It is a single ended EL84 Ultralinear with 5w/ch so it will play a wider variety of speakers than a 2w/ch SET.

That said, the Kitoki v2 can be ordered as a 2w/ch SET at no extra cost for those with more efficient speakers."

Everything looks well thought out and prices aren't out of this world...

The V3 is a 6V6 based SET making 2.5 watts. It is now $1600

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think the 6v6 can be wired as a SET; it’d have to be a SEP (Pentode)

A 6V6 can be used in a triode circuit.

You don't see very many triode builds  :scratch: , I'll leave it at that.

6V6 is an underused valve. I put it in the same class as the EL84. Maybe better.

hello
currently have an amp using adapters to get 6aq5 - if i get other adapters can use 6v6 also, is very nice after mods - would love a triode switch *so curious*

Should be getting my Kitoki v3 in a couple of weeks. I’ll see if it is any good or not.

Due to supply chain issues I did not get a metal chassis, I got a Hammond walnut wooden chassis.

Yep, more balls, less excess detail.  The 6V6, 6L6, 5881, KT88, 6550 family are wonderful sounding tubes.
