I happen to have a fairly large tube collection and am having a good time rolling tubes.

I don't know the Ocean amp, and can only say that the build quality is good on the V2 and the sound is better very good.  These are made in Shenzen, China, I gather because the parent company is Shenzenaudio,  if that matters to you.  I am unsure what your concern regarding the gain is, because the amp I have has a volume control..

 

Thank you for the information you shared. About the gain, while searching I've not seen any amp which has such high fixed gain. Highest I've seen 16dB maybe. That's the reason I concern about. I know close to nothing when it comes to amp so I'm worrying that the high gain could generate noise over headphones or reduce output sound quality.

I'm in the UK and I wouldn't mind forwarding one to you, as long as you do all of the ordering process.

Remember that it will probably get hit for some import duties as well and postage for such a large heavy item to the US is probably not going to be cheap.

The safe thing to do would be to fly over to the UK and pick it up in person.
