The Vacuum Tube Audio book has served as an excellent excuse…err, reason…to build up a test bench. After I got serious and focused on writing the book, it became clear that I would need to acquire some test equipment. Over the years I accumulated, and later got rid of, a lot of audio test gear. Much of it was Heathkit-made products that I built from a kit. Readers who were interested in kit-building will recall there were two prices listed in the catalogue—the kit price and the assembled price. The kit price was always less, although often not by much. The real attraction of buying the kit was to build it.
