Any recommended upgrades for the PCB parts?

Any recommendations for upgrades? I have a budget, but I'm willing to spend some cash where it might matter.

Easy - buy the best output transformers you can get.

Yes!
I realized that my budget won't allow me to get all "boutiqe-y" on the caps and stuff AND get the best OPT's that I can swing, so I'm going for the OPT's.
At this point I'm thinking the good ole James 6612/6113 though a buddy on AK has recommended the James 6123's. They're about $100 more...

Hello Wes!
As Shannon told the best uprade is the OPT and the James 6112HS is a great OPT for GSG (y)
My own upgraded parts are the resistors (Takman 1/2W ,Kiwame 2W and Vishay NS ), the caps (Nichicon FG Fine Gold/KZ Muse,KX for the High Voltage) and Mundorf Suprem as coupling caps (but Orange Drops are good too!).
Not a very expensive upgrade that sounds nice :))
Great amp for small expense (Thanks Shannon,great Job ;) )
Sorry for my english but i'm French (nobody's perfect *) )
Best regards.
Pascal.
