I have alerted Alex to this problem. He is at CanJam so it may take a little longer to get fixed. Now would be a good time to dream up the amazing chassis to house the amp in ..dB
To my ears LS>>LC ..dB
Planning to be there..dB
      This is not one of Warren's multiquote bonanzas but rather to collect common themes and address an obvious oversight.  One thing about Alex's amps is that each are designed to meet a specific need and not some hierarchical order. That is aside from the Liquid Carbon which was designed to bring his design genius to a lower price point  - no compromise on design per se but cheaper to build and thus the cost benefit to the community.  Liquid Glass - designed for tube...
Glad you had a good time. I was unfortunately working today but had hoped that I might be able to sneak down for a few hours. Hopefully next time..dB    I would have loved to hear the KSE1500 - this would have been the equipment highlight for me. 
From the Liquid Glass webpage List of Tubes That Should Work: Noval Octal 12AU7 6SN7 ECC82 12SN7 5963 VT231 6680 CV1986 5814 CV1988 12AT7 B65 ECC81 B63 6DJ8 ECC32 ECC88 CV181 6922 ECC88 8416 6H30 6189 6N1PEB 6H23EB 7730 ECC802 6CG7 12BH7 6FQ7 6GU7
No , the glass is SE only.
 Straight up - it might be.  The tabs need aluminium solder which is not the easiest but also not impossible. The new lead free solder should actually work a treat although I have not tried.  The ring is there to make contact with the opposite side of the diaphragm. If you have a steady hand you can check the continuity of the driver by placing a probe on the silver foil at the edge and then touching the middle of the driver.  good luck and enjoy the yamaha.  ..dB 
good to hear . Post a pic of the completed amp. I didn't check but did you include all the mods too?   ..dB
Home sick today and browsing all sorts of fun things - glad to hear you got this sorted. Looks like an impressive iteration of an old favourite..dB
