Good question !
I had a Yaqim for a few months, and the build quality and sound was good.
However, are you sure you want to go down the valve route?
What sound are you looking for, what sort of music do you play?
I've got a valve integrated , a stunning Luxman SQ 38 u, but find when I'm listening to rock and pop, it needs more attack , but great on acoustic and female vocals etc.
I've just recently hooked the pre out to a transistor power amp, so it's being used as a valve phono stage and pre, and to a solid state power amp.
I like this combo!
You'll hear Angel Trumpets and Devil Trombones...you are invited.
