I'm biased...and this is NOT a well-taken picture:)

Here's my Woo WA6SE maxxed w/Sophia. Someone please help me understand how to link to pics. I tried following the instructions but it never worked...

Here's a pair that I own:

This one is my Meng Baby (Basically the chinese domestically branded Sophia Baby). It runs 10WPC pure class A. I swapped out the original chinese tubes for NOS 6P1P-EV and 6N2P-EV Svetlana tubes. I have modified this amplifier with the addition of a gold-plated 1/4" headphone jack. I use it as my headphone amp, my SR-225's sing on this amp.






This one is my JAS 2.3 Bravo. Its a 6C33 single ended triode design, very much like the Almarro 318B, but with the addition of tube rectifiers, controlable NFB (I leave it on 0), a self-biasing circuit, and a remote. Internally it is all point to point wired, the chassis is milled aluminum with an acrylic top plate. I have swapped out the stock chinese tubes for NOS, 1955 build Chatham Electric JAN 5R4WGY rectifiers, and NOS, 1969 build General Electric JAN 6AC7WA drivers. This is my speaker amp, and what a job it does, it sounds fantastic. Not 1 single civilian tube in this house, all military issue/spec, I dont know how I managed that...

Now this one is the Yaqin MC-5881A Tube Headphone & Intergrated Amplifier and I became the owner yesterday of a brand new unused one after winning a bid on ebay for it for US$175.57. It uses 12AX7 / 12AU7 / 6N6 for driver tubes and 5881A /6L6GC x 4 and power output for speakers is rated at 23+23W RMS (4 ohm-8 ohm).

That is great looking amp. Kind of reminds me of my Trafomatic Head One:

I have one of these, but the finish is not nearly as nice and the headphone out is 1/8". I'm using EH EL84's in it as a speaker amp.

Can anyone who owns this amp give me some impression about its performance comparing to other tube amp? This amp's price is competitive but the shipping fee is crazy.
