This is a very good sounding tube, and a lot of different tubes are available. The circuit itself is made of a passive I/V conversion, based on a highest quality carbon film resistor.
The tube box, has high output impedance, so it is best used in combination with amplifiers with a relative high input impedance (10k or more).

Testimonials From Owners
Adam, Poland(Tube 10+ Cap 10 high standard tubes) since I switched to vinyl two years ago, all my library of CDs and FLAC files was left useless until now. Music from Tube 10 sounds like vinyl played on reference SET amp. It outperforms all I heard in my not so short life.
Many thanks to You and Ole.
Now I try to make some tube rolling, to fit perfectly to my taste.
Gid,Israel (Tube 10 reference high standard tubes)
I enjoy very much from the tube 10 DAC
It is much better from a lot of other which cost much more
Two weeks ago we had a head to head between the tube 10 dac and
Mbl 1611E dac($21450.00)
Tube 10 outperform in all aspects
Thank a lot for the information
John, Belgium (Tube 10 reference + Capbox10,Tung-sol 6sn7GT black plate 1940Â´s)
I am very satisfied with the Dac tube 10,it plays amazingly good!!!
Very musical, detailed and airy. Great tone and pitch. Makes you forget it is digital format(as Kondo
dac KSL does)
I disconnected the Kondo and played all time dac 10,to be sure a have
to change again to Kondo(i thought maybe Kondo wins in purety of tone)
....but I think Dac 10 is a CLEAR WINNER !!!!
I had some doubts reading your ad......but every word you wrote is true.
Dominique, France (Tube 10 reference + Capbox10)
You say me that your way of sound is "this feeling where you just stamp
your feet, and the small hairs in the back of your neck is raising " ,
it true . My system with the DAC 10 tube is now worldwide class.
The feeling is both details, natural, pleasure
So , i would like by this mail , congratulate you for the conception of the
DAC and thank you for the result.
Torben, Denmark (Tube 10 reference + Capbox10)
Dac Tube 10 very much as described, the sound is just world class, very analog and detailed with lots of air. Dac10 is the very best I have ever owned and previously I have owned very esoteric brands, Audionote, Gryphon.........
Greg, Great britain (Tube 10 reference)
Starting to warm up and it really is an excellent DAC. More musical
than the dCS or the EMM. I won't compare it to the Audio Note DAC 5
until it is more run in.
Kaj, Sweden (Tube 10 reference)
Well, I wrote a little input for Ole, and what strikes me most is that
I do NOT think of as the room's influence anymore!
The sound is more natural through Tube 10 Also this dac is far
better than DCS P8i
What I have had time to test the most is the sound between tube 10 and DCS P8i I know best, and here is the big difference, which can be a bit surprised that it could be?
Wong, Hong Kong (Tube 10 reference)
Overall: Very natural and linear with a good coherence of music flow. The choice of tube can make the sound very different. When I change to higher grade tubes the performance is improved dramatically.
Dynamic: Outstanding. The DAC can produce a wider dynamic range compared to my previous tube DAC. The transient it produces is fast and with attack.
Tonality: It has rich tonal color and does not colorate any specific range of frequency in my system. Transparency: Very clean and dark background and foreground giving rise to a very transparent tonal picture. Noise control by this dAC is remarkable.
As a whole in this price range, I am very confident that it stands from many many others in the market!
