View Full Discussion I finally unboxed my unit that I got on 8/22. I got a dud with some apparent factory caused problems. Mine had a scratch on the housing. Also, the power tube's guide pin was broken off. I could have lived with both of those things for good sound. I looked at the pictures on the drop and aligned the power tube how it is in the pictures, but it did not appear to come on. The driver tube lit up. I tried it with my HD6XXX's and only got sound out of the right channel and it was very low. Plug in the headphone only half-way and I get the left channel very low. It sounded good for what it is worth, but obviously not optimal. I hope I can get a replacement. My first bad drop. I was really looking forward to this amp. :(
Perhaps you can try another 6as7 tube.
I think the dark voice itself is quite durable.
I’ll see what support says after the holiday. Don’t want to be stuck with a broken amp if I miss the return window. I’ll just wait for the next drop.
