could I connect speakers to it instead of just headphones?

Yes definitely. It only has RCA out so if you needed speaker outs then you would need to adapt I'd recommend efficient speakers as it has 3 Watts at 32 ohms but it should be fine for any bookshelves otherwise it can be used as a pre-amp to another amp powering your speakers for that tuby warmth

I ordered 2x Mullard tubes and a Soviet 5c3s/5u4g (black plate) Svetlana NOS rectifier from 1967. I do not know this rectifier - I wonder how it will sound. Shipment on its way. :)

Let me know how that sounds! I just got the amp and will post a review once I have some time to listen to music.
This isn't directly about the amp (although it does look tempting) but I do see a Beyerdynamic T1 modified with at least one mini-xlr connector. What's the story behind that?

Is this too powerful for ordinary headphones usage? Thank you.

Depends on ordinary. Wouldnt use in-ears with a really low resistance but most normal over ears shouldnt have any problems.

I recommend an iFi ieMatch (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01L4CPF7U) to reduce the gain if you have something like sensitive IEMs.

how does this compare to Dark Voice amp?

DarkVoice is 100% analog and is not a DAC

The tube portion is the preamp stage, the actual headphone amplifier is not tube however it IS class A, it is supposed to cleanly amplify anything that the tube preamp stage does to the audio which is a design choice. I personally do not see the point of using a rectifier tube other than to see the big glowy tube but still far too low of heat output to roast hot dogs and marshmallows, besides, you wouldn't want the grease dripping on the tube even if it could. The rectifier is not in the signal path, it merely coverts AC to DC for the negative and positive rails. The manual actually tells one how this amp/dac works. Does it sound good? Likely yes, I want one. I am hoping to find something similar to this that uses tube OTL output circuitry to drive headphones.

Is the tube section class A too?

I tried this out at CanJam NYC 2020, with my own LCD2c. This is a very good amp. If you guys want to get into some real tube sound, buy this!

Doh, sorry I never responded to you guys. At this point, I don't even remember if I tried the TA-20 at the booth or not. I do know the TA-30 sounded VERY good and could probably go toe to toe with much more expensive tube amps.
