Ohhh...I love that volume knob and I agree 6ns7 tubes are on another level!
Mate, I love the look of your adapter, I just got a plain black adapter. I was fortunate to get the Shunguang for $50 Aus including shipping, it was a damn good deal at the time as these tubes go for twice the price. The Shunguang is quite simply the pinnacle for me, I find it is simply flawless. It is effortlessly airy and detailed, superb bass, a mid range that is pristine and so smooth and engaging, the high's are perfect and never harsh. I kept it to myself...
Shuguang Treasure Series CV181-Z tube?! :)  Probably the best I've heard in my small stash!!! :)  
Let's go...          
How do I feel about the 6sn7 tube conversion:   First impressions:     Second impression:     That is all!

I got the momentum's and chuck them on for some fun, syrupy goodness! Ok, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say....Save your money for this 6sn7 setup guys/gals, this is serious schiit! It could be 'new toy' syndrome but my ears are in heaven, I have a small collection of tubes but damn....I think I'm done! Clarity is stellar! Amazing holographic sound stage! I feel more drawn in to the music, it is utter deliciousness! I gotta stop gushing and do some real listen but...
Holy Moly, Ok....I've just gone the 6sn7 route!   I see what the other members are talking about!   Using a Russian 6sn7 plus all the adapters and socket savers you need with this conversion, only just warmed up but I'm very impressed!   Might report back in a few weeks about this tube type.

Still a great little amp!!
