Thanks Dave, your help and advice has been invaluable to me! I'll be sure to update this thread, and I'm sure I'll have quite a few questions about implementation.I just saw this thread. Looks like a great project Joe! Keep us posted on how it’s coming along.
I've stocked up on some of the Jensen electrolytics that you recommended even if I end up going with the metallised Film in oil cans as it shouldn't be hard to make a switch. Also got the other parts you recomended like riken resistors and already had a lot of AN magnetic 2W but will prob go with the silver ones at some point. Also decided that I'll try the choke input Psu first as the guy who I spoke to was adamant that it sounded better for this amplifier after trying both ways.
Hearing the WE124 vs another WE Set amplifier (might have been a WE91) was an eye opener, I nearly decided on a WE124 but its quite complex and prob not suited for a first attempt.
