There are a couple of places around Chicago that sell tubes. Will be hitting the streets for sure!

Got it today. Playing for about an hour now with the stock tubes. Besides a small nick on the face plate above the power switch everything working fine. No hiss, both channels at full volume. New tubes on Monday. Looking forward to a little     wider soundstage, and that warmer tube sound. Good Luck!

mine sounds good but I've got a lot of hiss/noise if there is no sound playing.

I have read that these things might be sensitive to ground loops in the wall outlet. Change your outlet and see if the hiss goes away. I have a Richard Grays 400 series power station that I plug all my amps up to. Nice smooth power. Some of the best money I've ever spent. Waiting for my chrome top 65n7 tube to arrive .

Fiio D03k solved my problem. I guess the circuit in my motherboard was good enough when using a small amp like the bravo audio v2 but this one is sensitive enough to pick up a lot more interference from the board.

I posted some cheap power cleaners in this thread that 4 dollar deal is probably dead(lol I bought 13 of them they work good I can even run my pc through them and I hooked all my water cooling fans to another psu and now my pc is a little faster mobo noise does effect the pc). That deal may be dead but you can find those power cleaners at msrp for like 10 bucks and they work mine has no hum but I havent tried it without the cleaner yet............ I was getting some whine on my Mojo until I switched the air fans to the other psu and installed the power cleaners now I dont get any dac whine on the Mojo. Power cleaning does work and gives your audio and digital a blacker background which makes the 0s in digital better. Go ahead and laugh at that you Digital Infallibility Computer Weenies but I KNOW that there are intersections between Audiophile and digital tech.
