Just received it after 3 weeks in customs...
Did the "rock it up and down" test to check for loose parts, clippings, etc inside (unplugged, no tubes attached) and bingo... there was a loose clipping inside, so dissasembled the bottom cover and removed it.
Be careful with this, as could lead to a short, smoke, etc... easy to fix.
Innards look fine, old-school neat 3d point to point, good looking soldering points.
Decent film output caps, heatsinked power resistors.
Burning-in the driver tube, which by its looks doesn't seem very promising (poorly built, innards crooked vs the base).
