Received my new M-60s today.

This version is configured and assembled more neatly than the Mk. 2s I had a half-dozen years ago.

Took me a minute to determine the front-end tube numbers. Viewed from the front of the amp and NOT upside down, V4, the cathode follower, is the single in front. V1, the input tube, is the left-rear, and that's easy to deduce--it's the 'N7 closest to the signal-input jacks. V2, the upper part of the CCS* is the center tube. V3 is in the right-rear. The eagle-eyes among us can probably determine that from the pic.

Both amps are in process of their minimum-24-hour new-amp-and-new-tubes conditioning. More pics of the circuitry are at the link.

* and pls correct me if this is the wrong terminology.
