Got mine today, this is my first tube amp and I'm mainly using it as a pre-amp (and am loving it).
First: this thing feels like a solid brick, I could throw this thing through a few windows and it'd be A-OK, did not expect it to have such a solid construction.
Also can't believe how _loud_ it is, maybe I should have expected that though. I guess my receiver doesn't have much of an amp, but I now only have to turn my receiver up 1/3rd of what I used to to drive my speakers.
Seems I lucked out on the no rust tubes but wow do they smell. Hoping that tapers down with some time...
Can you detect any difference in sound signature with this amp as compared to a direct connection from your source to the receiver? Does the volume knob on Darkvoice control the line level or it is just for the headphone output?
