I have the ART Tube Pac. I can see 1 small tube through a little window. It says - Warning do not open, shock hazard. It has a proper mains cable, no wall wart. It could be 20 years old. It’s a half rack unit, quite solid and would do some damage falling from a modest height. :D
I better look into the Craig vs WD40 a bit more before proceeding.

All bets are off WRT it's HT voltage then until someone can find a schematic...

But, this review by Paul White says "As far as I can tell, this unit uses the same low‑voltage tube circuitry as its predecessors,"

Still taking this recording lark seriously (and trying to record my Gypsy Jazz CD)........

I also have an email into ART support. So no mucking about until I hear more. And thanks all for your thoughts.
