1. Check before use: Before installation, please put the tube amp upside down to check if there’s any part broken off or damaged during the shipping.

2. Install the tubes: Please insert the tube 5Z4P into socket 1, the two tubes EL34-B into socket 2 and socket 3, and the tube 6N9P into socket 4 (as shown in P1). On the bottom of each tube, there’s an irregular plastic cylinder to help you find the correct direction to insert the tube into the socket. Please make sure the plastic cylinder is pointing to the same direction as the socket, and insert the tub into the socket slowly and gently. Mind that don’t push it too hard/fast.

4. Connect the speaker system: There’re 2 sets of Output Terminals in the middle on the back. Either of them has 3 terminals marked with the amount of resistance (as shown in P2). Please decide which output terminals to connect with according to the resistance of your speakers. And please connect the terminals of “0” and “8” if you are using 6Ω speakers.

6. Important Notices:

- Mind that don’t use the amp without speakers to avoid damages to the transformer or the tubes.

- The filaments will turn red when power on, and it takes about 20-30 seconds to warm up before you hear the music from the amp. Should you encounter any abnormal situation, such as smoking from the amp, please shut off the power immediately and email us to tell the situation. We’ll endeavor to offer you a satisfying solution.

- It is a normal phenomenon that the power transformer heats up within 1hr in summer, and get warm in 2hrs in winter. Please rest assured you can keep the amp on continuously.

- We suggest a at least 100hrs run-in period playing at low volume to help the amp achieve the perfect sounds.

During the run-in period, we suggest a break per 3-4hrs worked.
