Upgrading the Elekit TU-8200R Amplifier Kit part 1

With dates finally lined up to start filming some new content in 2021, heres the last of the 2020 videos we filmed. The Elekit TU-8200R at around £650 is a great price for a valve amplifier kit. After our series of "how to build" videos, we wanted to tackle the upgrade. Here we take the completed built kit and take it apart to put better resistors and capacitors in it. With a budget of around £150, we wanted to spend more and fit the TKD potentiometer, however, it is a trickier task so we will do that another time. During part one we take you through the though processes of the selection, careful process of desoldering using desolder braid to prepare the holes/tracks in the PCB for the new parts.


We've just taken delivery of 2 new Elekit kits. To read more about the Elekit TU-8100 PCL86 Single Stereo Power Amplifier Kit click  HERE.
