No, but here is a pic.
I bought one, along with Senn 800's and changed the tubes for
Genalex/Gold Lion ECC83's.
I found the new Senn's sounding better and better as they were getting broken in but the amp, especially with the added bass button ON, sounded beutiful.
Rich, warm, nothing 'tinny' and could play some mean R & Roll!
I've had the unit for 6 months now and I recommend it whole-heartedly.

Munchoba, welcome and glad to see you make your first post.
To what gear would you compare the Fosgate and how would you compare it?
Also, am I reading right that the outputs in the back are simply line-out through-puts? Do they mute, either when the Fosgate is off, or when you have headphones plugged in?
What do these different features (the surround and the bass boost) do for the sound?
Thanks for additional details!
I was at axpona in chicago recently and I got a chance to hear the fosgate tube headphone amp briefly on both the lcd-3 and the sennheiser 800.The amp sounds promising with both but with all the ambient noise present at the show and the shortness of my audition I can not define the sound capability.But it sounded like it was worth checking out more closely.It seemed to be able to drive both phones pretty well.The amp sure looks pretty.
