Just note, stock tubes in the Darkvoice are terrible. They need to be rolled for it to sound decent. And even still it's meh. Valhalla 2 is worth the extra $150 for sure. It is just a far better Amp.

I don’t own a DV. My friend has one that I tried and it was awful. He put some 1942 Kenrad tubes in it and it was much better.

Hmm..i guess i ll never know how bad the stock tubes are. Power tube seems damaged and driver has a ton of hum so i replaced both immediately

Yes. That tube was probably damaged in transit

I replaced the stock power tube with a RCA 6AS7G and it works great
I still get the hum, but its not audible once music starts playing. I am hoping the hum will go away once amp and tubes go through the burn-in process
