Here's a new headphone amp I just got in. It is a tube hybrid they call Soha. So far I am really liking it, now to some pics.

What a coincidence, Rick--I was just browsing through headphone amps on eBay!

Congrats on the new amp! That 12AU7 is easy and cheap to change if you like experimenting.

I've been looking at different tubes and they are fairly inexpensive. For now I will just sit back and enjoy it as is. BTW Sean do you have a favorite place to purchase tubes?

They're just barely squeaked that design past ATEAMS (Association for Tube-Equipped Audio Merchandise Standards). Section 3, subsection IV of their Minimum Appearance Guidelines document clearly states that any piece of tube gear (other than guitar amps, which have the privilege of a grandfather clause) must show at least the top half of one tube -- though displaying the entire tube is preferable -- in order to be legally sold in the United States.

My last couple of purchases have come from here. Prices are fair and the shipping is fast--mainly because they ship from San Diego. I've found most new production tubes run about the same price everywhere you look. Haven't dived into the NOS thing--too expensive.

Ok. So we know the new amp is photogenic. Could we have some comments about the sound? Or did you try it yet? ;\)
