Here's another new comer, looks interesting:

OddWatt - Great new tube amp kits, yeah! And a review by Fremer: http://www.analogplanet.com/content/vc-audio-labs-mb-45-kt120-monoblock-power-amplifier-kit

SKA - Simply Killer Amp by Greg Ball

I was wondering if the moderator can make a long cumulative list into a 'sticky' for easier access instead of looking through 3 pages?

Thanks,
Anand.

Interesting stuff!  I look forward to seeing their KT120 amps.

diyaudio store - A good place for Mesmerize (DCB1), F4, F5, Honey Badger circuit boards; multiple chassis that can accomodate F4, F5, and other designs, fully tapped (!) as well. Look around!

Best,
Anand.

The chassis are great. I got the big one and am very happy.

I hope this post fits in here as it is about kits.

There seems to be a movement at the moment to sell LDR based passive pre-amp kits, and there seems to be complete ignorance about these Light Dependent Resistor products. A word of warning really needs to be published about LDR based pre-amps. LDRs contain Cadmium gas which is lethal (kidney or liver failure) if eaten or breathed and is a long term serious health (Cancer) risk if just touched on a regular basis. Because of this it is illegal to import or sell these items within the EU as they are not RoHS or WEEE approved, so cannot be given a CE mark. This is true for both kits and built products.

Most diy'ers can design basic power supplies, especially for tube based designs with ease. Using Duncan PSUD2, etc...as design software. The trouble comes with regulator design. A few sources I have found very useful:

DHT Regulators: Rod Coleman. On diyaudio you will see his DHT regulators are becoming more and more famous. Direct contact is:
valve.amps@yahoo.co.uk;

https://www.dropbox.com/s/31qxp71reg65810/ANdht01v2.pdf

HV and LV shunt regulation: http://www.belleson.com/index.php and http://kandkaudio.com/accessories.html

There is also the Bybee Music Rail for your consideration, although, it is not a regulator, it has its applicability at the tail end of a regulator, all info is here:

Best,
Anand.

Another newcomer, with excellent design, documentation, and measurements by Tom Christiansen:

Neurochrome Audio: http://www.neurochrome.com/audio/

Check out his:
Modulus 86 advanced chip amplifier
Parallel 86 advanced chip amplifier
DG 300B amplifier
Maida 21st century regulator (max 600V and 300mA!)
Universal Filament Regulator

Your link is dead, and I don't see any reference to DIY at the Parks Audio LLC site.
Not sure if it's OK to link to other forums, so I won't, but Shannon Parks founded a forum with all the DIY stuff referenced there. It's called DIY Tube dotcom

Thanks man.

Can't do much about dead links unfortunately.

My buddy  Rex spent $20 for the Decware DNA Horns and says these are one of the best that he has ever owned. Parts cost him $300. Add a pair of Vaughns  plasma  tweeters for a true SOTA  sound.-7K

Adire Audio is BACK!!!  :green:

Dan Wiggins sold the company to 2 audio enthusiasts who are carrying the torch forward! When they closed shop in 2008-2009, I was sad to see them go! So those of you that loved the Shiva, Tempest, Brahma, etc...here they are in new form! Let’s hope they survive the intensely competitive diy sub driver market!
