    I'd be interested in at least a pair of each, EF80 & EF86. Maybe even two pairs of each; never hurts to have a spare.

    I would join as well for both EF80 and EF86 adaptors.

    So my 339 is shipped by Massdrop

    What are the indications that its the latest revision. I know there was some discussion recently on this, but i have not been following it closely

    I know the green capacitors on the bottom is one. Are there any others to look out for?

    I'm in the US.

    It's the latest version (green film caps), I've seen pictures of the production. They're not making different/old versions.

    I updated the adapter list above

    I understand your excitement! I hope you'll get it soon. May I ask which driver do you plan to use together with the ordered Mullard's 6080?

    I know many of you(me included)are new in the camp of OTL'S amps and i've found a post of @gibosi on the 6AS7 thread which i think is v.important on how to use them without the risk of damaging the headphones:
    "In anOTL amp, the headphones are directly connected to the plates of the 6AS7, with nothing in between. Leaving the headphones plugged in from the start, the start-up surge can easily damage headphones. This is not just theoretical. It has happened. And repairing or replacing headphones can be expensive.

    So again, for those who own OTL amps, never turn the amp on or off with the headphones plugged in. And again, after turning the amp on, wait several minutes, until the output tubes have reached their normal operating temperatures and stabilized, before plugging in the headphones."
