I've always built my amps the way I wanted and the way I designed them and without asking very many people what kind of parts they wanted in it.
I was thinking of doing something a bit more interactive for my first venture into the very high end. My first amp is just to dip my toes in the water and see how it sounds, which is why I wanted it to be a headphone amp with low power output and using only 6N6P tubes for both voltage gain and output.
Now, I've already ordered some very nice silver output transformers and planned on using the same pwoer supply chokes I use in the Makoyi, but I wanted everyone's input on a few other key parts.
I)For coupling caps, do you prefer Teflon, Oil or plain film types? And which ones? We will only be using 0.1uf values here.
II) For rectification, do you prefer a SS rectifier with large electrolytic caps for filtering or a tube rectifier and film caps?
III) If you answered tube rectifier for the above, what kinds of power supply caps are your favorite?
I also encourage any other dialogue about this and will answer any questions you have
