This helps Thanks a lot!
'
The instruction No.4 mentions that "the only maintenance possible by the user is to periodically replace the values.....".
I dont really understand what the word "value" stand for in here. The instruction No.3 also mentions the word "value".

It's "valves", not "values", and that's just another word for tubes.

The word being used is not values......it is valves, so the only maintenace possible by the user is to periodically replace the tubes.

I read the same thing myself and thought tubes. Don't leave it on or the life of the values will be shortened. At that point I was like.. they must mean tubes..

Anyways, in generally what is the lifecycle of a valve? or it just depends on what tubes?

The fear of the fuzzy and dinky are becoming reality.

There are a little background noises on the Earmax pro. it would be larger and larger if I continue turnning up the volume on it. Though there is no such weakness on Anniversary.

The improvement on the Anniversary is a much better overall detail. Earmax pro is smoother and warmer but lack the details compare with Anniversary. Anniv. retains the warm on it and has faster sound. This is a sound all about energetic and aggressive. EMP is a little bit slow for the pop and rock music. The base on EMP is bloomy and uncontrolled. Anniv. is more tight and accurate.

Good to see additional impressions of these two amps, please keep them coming. There isn't very much in terms of reviews for either amp, let alone a direct comparison.

However, are you using the same tubes for both units in forming your opinions?

Nope..
They use their own stock valves.
I will try out the way you suggested.
