"Say Hello! to my new little friend"

This is called a guanzo Hifi version 1.0 tube pre amp. I'm not sure what the input tubes are but they sure sound sweet!. And My magnavox tube amp to go with my Klipsch hersey 1's , A match made in heaven. Listening to B.B King live at the Regal. I still need to mount the pre amp to a solid piece of cherry to match the maggie.

Is this guanzo Hifi version 1.0 tube pre amp a kit or is this something that can
be purchased online? it's a cool simple pre amp, I like it.
I primarily use my maggie for listening to the blues and would like to have a
simple pre amp that sounds good.

This was bought on ebay straight from Hong Kong for a hefty sum of 50.00 and it's built very well and sounds great!

The Green glow is from 2 green LEDS under the tubes , They can be disconnected.

Well this is not the 1000 wpc gatling gun simile I was expecting. $50 huh? I'm a little confused/intrigued about that is possible even with the cheapest possible parts assembled in HK.

They might have yanked the listing for while to fix it when I wrote to them asking if they had a 110v transformer as their first ad only said 220v. They
just wrote back saying they had changed the ad and you can choose the voltage with a note after you buy one.
So it comes preassembled for sure huh? Hope so.
I was worried about the blue green LED thing under the tubes but when looked at their website, Satistronics.com I noticed that LEDs are their main product.
Hey doesn't the Bottlehead preamp use an LED in their design that actually does something besides light up?

Was it worth your 50 bucks? I am thinking of buying the v2.0 of that.

Seller is snow48_6 Search Ebay for "Buffer Pre-amplifier". It says headphone but I don't see a 1/4" input. You can dd one if that's what you want to use it for. I'm just looking for a small pre amp to mess around with on my Maggy's.
