TU-8300 questions

I was given (!) a TU-8300 fully assembled a while ago and I have just now set it up. I am currently using the reissue Genelex KT66 tubes in it and am loving the sound. I do have a weird sound coming from it though. It is a hum that varies with the volume. It is actually at its loudest when the pot is turned all the way down! I'm guessing there is some sort of grounding weirdness going on.

Do you have any suggestions for a good stepped attenuater to put in there? I was looking at the Goldpoint but it looks like it is too big. What value pot comes with the unit? Oh, and I saw tht you were using some 807 tubes, once you have the adaptors do they pop in like any other 6l6 tube? Thanks.
