Got mine today. No hum and sounds pretty good although the tubes haven't much break-in time yet. I'm using this as more of a pre-amp with my home system connected to a solid state Emotiva XPA-7 amplifier. Has that nice "resonance" that the tubes seem to bring to the sound to make it more "alive" (I don't know how to describe it, I can't say that "warm" completely captures it). Can't state any initial impressions relative to the Little DOT MKIV yet .. will take some time to really learn the sound signatures of both amps, they are both great.
Can't wait for some of the other tubes I ordered to arrive and try out the different sounds! I read the stock tubes kind of suck but they don't sound bad to me at all (guess that shows I'm not an audiophile?). I didn't have any humming noises like others have described.
