Yeah I have noticed it has just vanished and according to my user profile I have never posted in it. Perhaps it was deleted for some reason? Shame as I wanted one of those amps

It might have been deleted by the mod because I posted Mr. Yang's photo. Hope people didn't take it the wrong way that I am promoting anyone/company's product. I was just excited to meet someone as knowledgeable and ethusiast about tube amplifier as Mr. Yang.

He was so polite and accepted my opinon, he started to replaced some of the component in the amp as well as the driver tube to EL-84. WOW!!!!! it was totally two different amps. Needless to said, I walked out the store with a big smile on my face and lugging an 12 pound amp on my back... Great people to work with...
This was my finding as well, from my "Jasmine T-200" amp (same amp, new label). Stock, I found it dull and lifeless, but fairly smooth. Got a pair of Tungsram EL-84's, and like you, found a whole new amp! It drives my Philips HP1000, and Grado SR-325i & SR-60 VERY well now. The jury is still out on the Senn 595-120ohm, but I haven't listened enough with it to say what exactly I like and don't like....

I STILL haven't hooked it up to my computer, or to my Fostex 4" mini-horns to try...just so litle time these days

post #43 of 52
the one on ebay is raised to $200

but the pics show an actual USB input now,

thought the volatage is ghetto, they covered the 220 with a post it sticker and wrote 110 on it.

Makes me suspiscious if its really US voltage or the guy is just trying to move more units.

does anyone know what will happen if you plug a 220v tube amp into a 110 north american outlet?

why don't you ask the seller directly?

Hello RnB180,

if you plug in a 220 Volts tube amp into 110 Volts outlets probably nothing will happen at all. It simply won't work as the internal voltage produced will be half of what is necessary to drive the tubes properly.

I'd recommend you to ask the seller about this voltage issue.
If he's a serious guy, he ought to give you an answer to this, otherwise I wouldn't buy anything.

The 220 Volts are probably the AC voltage they have in China and Hong Kong, in Europe we have 230 Volts and in the US it's 110 Volts. May be the producer of this amp can easily change the voltage by changing some internal parts.
I've seen this amp quite often on ebay.uk, the specs in the auction desription say: 110V/60Hz or 220-240V/50Hz.

You could also read the feedbach comments left on eBay to find out if the buyers were satisfied or not.

I hope that helps.
/ Holger
