    Fascinating.  Looks like an update of the 337 design, but if I read it right, using a chinese 6J4P input tube, which is equivalent to the 6AU6 (the pics make this a little hard to determine, though).  Definitely still the 6AS7 power tubes. Also, there is a third transformer - so is this one transformer-coupled, now, and not OTL?
    I wonder when it will be available...

    The third transformer might be a choke. That'll improve the power supply, but it'll still be OTL.
  4. Skylab Contributor
    Ahhhh.  Indeed it might.  Good call.
    Do you have the same take I do on the input tubes?

    I wish it was TC, or I would be all over this.

    Why does this amp have two separate plugs and switches?
  8. Henerenry
    its a dual mono design.

    About two months if the website's right, yea. Most of the retailers in Hong Kong just getting them now, so I guess distribution is taking its time... Darkvoice amps look nice but I'm not really in the market for OTL tube dual VC so...

    My god that is so clean on the inside.  It looks like it was assembled by a very precise robot with OCD and too much time on its hands.[​IMG]

    So, is it a balanced design? I went to Chinese "ebay". The price was $500 USD without shipping
  14. Ypoknons Contributor
    No, it's dual mono, not balanced.
