Series One 50 preamp tubes position

I'm looking for a whole tube upgrade but can't figure out preamp tubes position.

ID100 info

Hi, I'm a proud owner of a Ht5-5th and now i'm planning to upgrade my gear and i'm undecided if i should get an ID100 head or a Series One 50 (or 100w) head. An all valve head sure sounds great but: 1) it's heavy... very heavy (S1-100 weights 27kg!!) 2) it's fragile 3) it need to be re-tubed 4) it's...
