Just got mine today. Put it together (all documentation in Chinese, but doesn't seems like rocket science to set it up) and after it warms up, it start smoking! i unplugged it right away!First tube amp I ever had no idea whats wrong: bad tube? (Big tube on the back, small one at the front right?) I live in US so is a 110 v version. Does anyone have any idea what is going wrong?

Best if you just send it back for replacement, smoke is never a good sign :P

I kept testing it for some time and after 3 "smoke incidents" it seems like is not doing it again. Maybe because is just recently build and still fresh from factory? anyway, what's the warranty on this? Im going to run it all day and see how it goes. Btw this thing sounds amazing compared with my fiio e9/e17 combo

at least check to see where the smoking is/was coming from.

Looks like it's the resistors in the power supply unit. That's my guess, I recognize that particular smoke :P
This is not normal. Contact massdrop & darkvoice and ask for help.

It works, and it actually stopped producing smoke but the burning smell is still there so i just shut it off and unplugged it. Didnt want to risk setting my desk on fire :D

I hope you can get a replacement! I'm still waiting for mine and hope the others won't have this problem.
