Yes I am.I've owned one for about a week and half.You ask if it's a good price my God this amp should be $1000 if it's a dollor.I'm using it with the Rega Apollo with AQ Cheetah RCA's hooked up to the Yarland amp to it's RCA inputs.My headphones are the Sennheiser HD 650 with Cardas cable.The CD player is brand new as is the amp.So after about 80 hours on the two it sounds incredible.My previous amp was the Creek 21se and compared to the Yarland the Creek is a hunk of junk.To give you an idea when I was listening to Pat Metheny playing acoustic guitar you could here him breathing in between notes.Simply amazing.You have 30 days to decide if you like it.Other information is that the amp is from China and only has RCA inputs with a sheided power cord included.www.tsto.com

Whoa. Heck, I had forgotten I had even posted this after no response. So, we've got another player in the under $500 tube amp market. Thanks for your comments.

In my never-ending love of trying out new amps, I have ordered one of these. Hope to have it next week.

Well, it arrived today. I have not turned it on yet, but already I am UNBELIEVABLY impressed. There is NO WAY this thing can cost $350. It must weigh 20 punds, and it's faceplate is 3/4" SOLID WOOD. No joke. It may not sound good (we shall see - has to come up to room temp before I will risk plugging it in), but it is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS - no joke:

Your getting a great tube amp.I've owned it for about 4 months and it's outstanding.Once you here it spread the word.It's a real bargain.

Considering the price it really looks very cool. I'm waiting for your listening impressions Skylab. Oh and please post a picture of the back panel also.

I am sure it is terrific for the money - like other low priced Chinese amps than can be worth three times their price.

However, I would take the Doge 6210 (for $375 shipped), which also uses the wonderful EL84 amp tubes, because the Doge uses 12AX7s in the preamp section, and so many more of these are available for trying different tube combos than the 6N3 of the Yarland.

This greatly restricts the sound possibilities of the Yarland - you are stuck with having to use a Chines 6N3 or a Russian 6N3P (or a limited number of others), while a wide variety of 12AX7s can be had for the Doge.

Hmmm..I do see your point. So I take it a 6N3 cannot be easily substituted? It looks just like a 6922, but I'm guessing they aren't compatible?

I already took out the EL84's that were in it - they sounded way too bright. I put in some EH EL84's - much better. I'd like to try replacing the 6N3's too, but I guess I can't, eh?
