I have taken up building amplifiers a s a hobby of sorts, and am looking for a place to post and seek advice on building components like amps. pre's, turntables, etc... Is this the right thread for that or is this just speakers only?

On AVS, this is probably as good a place as any. Probably several members here who also like to DIY the electronics side, but I rarely see that discussed here.

If you don't get much feedback here, you should also try diyaudio.com as they have dedicated sections for amps, sources, etc with a very active community.

I am looking to build a preamp to go with my tube amps. Thinking of a 3 chassis dual mono project with outboard power supply and external phono pre. It must be a world-class pre and something that will live up to the amps in every way.

What does it need in terms of gain and features? What is the input sensitivity of your poweramps?

Go ahead and build a myriad of chassis if that pleases you, but it will bring no benefit to a well constructed 2 chassis (pre+phono and PSU); Might as well use the same supply for both as they will be using similar voltages, low power compared to a poweramp, saves money (because a size or two up in PTx core size is cheaper than multiple units) and simplifies greatly interchassis earthing.

Do you have a pathological aversion to SS devices where they work best in a complimentary hybrid design?
