I guess it'll be a good time to take internal pics.
Volume control broken in transit. Working with Mr. Chen now to resolve. Keep you posted.

I'm hoping I'll be one of the first to get the LD III on headfi! It all depends on when Dr. Yang finishes it, then I'll go and pick it up before I return home (hopefully). I leave Sept 1st... so I definitely hope it's out before then!

the amp sounds very promising, but i'm still wondering where we can purchase extra tubes in the US.

According to Dr. Yang's Forum the 1B2 is the equivalent to a 1S5 and 1DF91. These are readily available at online tube dealers. The 4P1S is another story. Dr. Yang says the Russian equivalent is a 4¡Ç1¡Ç I can't read the Russian alphabet so it looks like we are going to need help from our Russian friends to find us this tube.

Very similar, that 4P1S the-Soviet lamp 4P1L.. It was used in radio stations of a tactical part. In Russia any more is not issued. Questions on additional lamps need to be set to the manufacturer of the amplifier.

Dr Yang sells through a dealer in Shenzhen. Also his shop is close to the water park there. If you contact him at www.little-tube.com you can make arrangements to try them all at his place before deciding!

Received my new one today (one week since reporting the problem, not bad turnaround time). It is working fine. The sound is the classic tube sound, bass much fuller though than the ASL MG Head OTL I used to own. I still need to try them with some Senns.

For the money, it's hard to argue against this unit, for around $110 bucks it's a bargain, and Mr. Chen has been very helpful in my transaction.

While it might be a cheap amp these things should be a factor when buying a tube amp.
An American/European 1S5 or 1DF91 is a direct replacement for the Chinese 1B2 tube. Unfortunately there is no American/European equivalent for the 4P1S only a discontinued Russian 4P1L. BTW, you can buy a set of tubes from the Dr. for around $9 USD.

See post 70 in this thread for my impressions of the LD2 with Senns.

Update a few days later:

Still very impressed with the build quality and sound - just gets better with extended use. I have used it for a few hours every day, still get very hot but sounds very involving with a nice 'laid back' presence.

On initial hearing not the most exciting sound but repays perseverance and you begin to appreciate the subtle way it lets the music come through.

I note the prices have risen on the web site (for the UK at least) and are only guaranteed thru Sept. Not suprised, as the word gets out these are going to get more expensive.

I was contacted by Zunqui re the supplied power cable (which was not suitable for the UK) and the company obviously want to rectify the problem.

Zunqui also promised to contact me as soon as the LD3 is available - sounds really interesting and I will be very tempted to try as soon as it available.

Any possibility of a trade-up there?
