yep, we only know the brand's origin but dunno where they are manufactured

Some times you can, just have to do lots of research and cross reference the codes etched on the tubes.
But that's usually after you have got the tube back home.

im a noob in audiophile stuffs.. so please take my words with a pinch of salt.. sweat.gif
anyway, im pairing this amp with my Senn HD518 and Audio-Technica AD500. With the Senn, this amp brings out fuller mids, and helps to balance out the dark sound signature of the Senn. Great for jazz and classics. Overall the sound felt 'smoother', dunno how to describe properly.. sweat.gif
With the Audio-Technica, which has great mids and clarity but weak bass without an amp, this amp gives it a slightly more solid bass. Not punchy, but just nice so that u can feel the bass without ending up with a headache.
I can pretty much say that the amp has a 'warm' sound signature. Gives u that warm fuzzy feeling when listening to music. Great if u just wanna relax and enjoy some slow songs.
Only problem is microphonics, which i guess is usually present with most tube amps. Once the amp warms up properly, the microphonics will disappear.

found this nice guide on the intro on tubes.really useful if you understand what he says:
http://www.head-fi.org/t/119389/the-new-im...faq-for-newbies

for little dot tube owners:
http://www.head-fi.org/t/563884/little-dot...e-rolling-guide

btw,can any tube fits any tube amp or there's a compatibility restriction?
also,what is it possible to under/over-volt a tube amp?wonder what happens?

there is a compatibility restriction on tubes, you cannot just buy any tube anywhere and plug it in to any tube amp and expect it to work
