Picked this up during the last drop - pretty happy with the purchase. I mainly use it with a dedicated DAC and either my HD-650's or Beyer T90's - both compliment this AMP nicely. Still using the stock tubes and they sound pretty good so far. I did have some issues with a burning smell at first, but that resolved itself quickly after a few minutes. If you're on the fence, this is a pretty good amp for the money. It's bigger than it looks in the pictures, so be prepared to give up some desk space for it.
It could be some oil on the new transformer burning off, it might take a little time or it could be a bit of flux left on some joints burning off since it's point to point hand wired.
