The MMYY or MYY format was Jason Green's guess as to the early AD serial number formats and seems to be fairly accurate. It appears that format was used when the amps were made by Trace Elliot until sometime in 2002 when production moved to a new facility. The best way to tell of course is to open it up and check the date on the Trace inspection sticker.
I'll open it up and check it then, thanks for the tip!

Careful not to touch the circuitry under the chassis. Many valve amps can store very high voltages long after being powered down and unplugged from the wall...

I'm guessing based on the last 4 digits that this amp is from November 2008, is that right?

Jack? at the Field Guide tells me that it has the mid-lift inductor, making it a fairly rare type 1 preamp.
It's at my tech getting power supply caps replaced and a slight structural repair d/t shipping. I'll edit this to add pics soon.

I just received this a few hours ago. Purchased on eBay to a scottish dealer. I'm really happy, sounds amazing and it's new, well, it must have been at the shop for 10 years, don't know, but I'm the first owner. If anyone knows how old is it by the serial number, please let me know.

Finally opened the amp to see the sticker, it was made by trace elliot on 19/11/2001, built by 201, all other fields of the sticker are blank. I do not know if the last two digits of the serial indicate 2001, I guess so, besides that I can't see any other relation between serial and date, if someone knows more about this, I would appreciate to know :D

Cheers!

I don't think we really know any more. A couple of years later the last four digits gave the month and year (MMYY), but it looks like that system wasn't there when yours was made. Still, at least you have a date for yours.

Sorry about the old forum code, but...

I should have clarified... What about the new AD series amps???

The last four digits of the AD series serial numbers tell you the month and year it was made. For example 1564-06-03 was built during June 2003 (O6-03).
