I have read that some owners say it sounds good.

I do not think it is a great favourite around here however since it is built on a printed circuit board. Not the preferred constructions for us who can't just leave things as they come.

i have been reading stuff about it here are well, few things came to my attention, one thing is the Tube are made in China, guess its may not be the best of sound ?

other stuff about power supply and come resisters missing etc etc witch i didn't under stand much.

i was thinking to replace the EL34 with Mulard EL34, would that make much of a deference ?

I think that in general, Chinese power tubes are not that bad. Some are actually quite good!

Small signal tubes is a different matter.

I bought one of these mc10L 2 weeks ago, its got some jj-kt77 bias at 33-34 ma per tubes, I changed the 6n1 preamp tube for svetlana 6n1p and it sound fabulous...warm, good bass...rich mids smooth highs,,,,better than my sugden au31 class a solid state amp...the main transformer run a bit hot but so far so good.
I don`t care if its got board...or made in china...it sound realy good a with good tubes bias properly.

I just got the Yaqin MC10L and I am very pleased to say the least. It was very bright to start, but after 20 hours or so has mellowed out. I'm looking for just a bit more bass punch so I'll be rolling in some new EL34 & svetlana 6n1p's soonn on order. I'll posy my findings.
