(12AU7) Tube Amp Recommendations?

Hi, as you guys know by now, my tube amp uplorry liao and I want another tube amp.

I need the following:
1. Below 200 SGD (S&H inclusive)
2. Preferably uses 12AU7 tubes as I have 3 RCA tubes lying around now and I don't want them to go to waste.
3. Has RCA input jacks, 3.5mm or 6.3mm output jack

Any recommendations?

Thanks!

I can sell you my bravo ocean cheap if you want, as I have no use for it. Only had it for a few weeks and still comes with warrenty. Got it on 27/6/2013 But the only deflect is that the tube is broken by accident, therefore all you have to do is to replace the tube.

Hmmm... A bit high considering that I can get the V2 for around 120 SGD, S&H included.

Yep, that's not for 12AU7

I was thinking a bit more about my situation and thought of another thing: Should I just sell off all my 12AU7 tubes and go for other tube families? :X

Suggest u save up a bit more.
$200 budget with shipping & taxes included is almost mission impossible.
The kind of amps u can get is really limited.

You have a point there, what is the next step up usually?

Sorry, I not sure as I am still trying to identify the exact make of the tubes (two of them have completely missing labels!) and I am still deciding on my next step
