Received my amp only to discover, the wrong power cord in the box!! Now I have to buy an adapter! Not happy at all. Took forever to get to me. I will think twice before ordering again from drop.

There's a choice to select a plug when purchasing, you must have selected the wrong plug so that's on you, not Drop. Secondly, the amp just uses an IEC C13 cable, go buy another for something like $4 if you don't have one already.

The description says 691 tubes but is this a mistake? I have seen on other sites that it uses 6J1 tubes. If someone can clarify that would be great.

From what I have researched 691 seems to be a misprint but cannot confirm. Let’s see if the good folk on here can sort this out.

My unit makes an audible static noise that makes it difficult to listen to, but that’s only when it’s connected to the pc. I tried hooking it up through my monoprice DAC/amp and the noise doesn’t go away. But if I play it through my phone, it just disappears. Anyone can advise?

Mine does not, it works perfectly fine. Maybe your unit is defective.

Ground loop issue. Plug your phone charger into your phone on the same outlet as the amp. You’ll most likely hear static again.

I just picked up one of these elsewhere, first impressions is that these are stupidly powerful, I'm genuinely afraid to move the nob while using my beyerdynamic DT 1990's and since there is no gain switch, I've got the dial turned maybe 10-15% and its already very loud. I'll give the tubes some burn in before commenting on sound.

Looks like a neat little amp, gateway to TA-10. Can someone post the pcb. I wonder is it like a LD MK2 which has a solid state opamp?

I've got an issue with my item, there is pretty loud static and crackling sounds in the background. It is sadly so loud when im not listening to anything that it gives me a headache. Does anyone know if this is a known issue with this amp, or these tubes and that it can be fixed? I find it strange that the transformer is inside the amp, for all i know that might be what im hearing. But i am pretty sure there is something wrong, cause the static and crackling is relativly loud.... Ill appreciate any help!! Thank you :)

Static noise means there's interference happening, and interference means nearby electronic device which is highly probably your smartphone, with bad cables, it'll amplify that noise.

Ground loop is right. Tube amps are very bad for picking up interference. If you can move the amp away from other electronics it should clear up. That includes your computer.

I repaired and put my BK Pro-10 pre-amp back into my system and it does not have a headphone output, neither 1/4" nor 3.5mm. It does have an extra pre-amp output which I was hoping would work with a headphone amp such as this. I don't "need" a tube headphone amp but this looks interesting. I do need to use RCA outs on the BK. I have a well used Seinnheiser headphone set that still sounds great. FYI. I had been using the pre-out on a Yamaha A/V receiver with that output as my analog source because I use separate Crown amps. My digital inputs go into a Marantz DP-870 processor and the analog bypasses the Marantz processor. And, I just purchased a DAC for my PC to bypass it's sound card. I have yet to receive it though. Thoughts?

OK....I am a true rookie. How do I hook this up? Do I have to buy a receiver? Laugh a while and then someone out there give me some directive please?

This amplifier is meant for output to headphones. It only has two sets of RCA-type inputs, but no preamp outputs. The amplifier has left and right RCA inputs, to connect to the sound output from a source device like a CD/DVD/Bluray player. Your sound bar has inputs, but I don't see outputs on it. A source device that will work with this amp will have outputs in the form of RCA (looks like the red/white connectors on your sound bar), or possibly a headphone output where you could connect an adapter that converts the headphone output of your source to male RCA jacks. I hope that helps.

You just need to get a source with RCA outputs. That could be a USB DAC like this (https://drop.com/buy/massdrop-x-grace-design-standard-dac) or a Schiit Modi (https://www.schiit.com/products/modi-1) or if you have RCA outs on your PC sound card, a CD player or your TV those would work also. You just need something that can send the audio signal from the source (spotify etc.) too the amp.
