Yep... Just got my virtue amp and am thoroughly impressed with the build quality, especially with its weight. It is definitely a solid piece of equipment... much more than I expected. Having owned a couple of t amps this one trounces them in craftsmanship even the one I have costing 3 x's the price of virtue. I look forward to listening to it when I return home. For the next week I'll just stare at it and imagine how nice it will sound in my audio set up (Rega Apollo-R; space tech labs 6L6G tube buffer; "virtue"; Hawthorne 15PSI open baffle)While in Taiwan I hope to audition it with john blue's new 3F loudspeaker... With my wife's permission of course.
The volume position changed in the new version. It was a detail I lost track of when we had the new knobs machined. My vendor actually did bring it up during assembly and I let it go.Now that there is an active pre-amp in the unit, you would rarely turn it all the way up. Even a half turn may be too much in some cases. So the reference position is less important in my opinion.If you loosen the set screw enough (mostly out), you can actually turn the knob all the way around and clamp it onto the round portion (not the flat part).If you try this, let me know how it goes.
