Like all other Monoprice "tube amps", this is actually a hybrid, a tube preamp with a solid state power amp. Yes, it's mentioned in the OP, but calling this a tube amp is just wrong.

If I use it as a headphone amp, does it use solid state or tube to power my headphone?

It's only a headphone amp (no speaker output) so the power amp section (yes, headphone amps are power amps, it's just that the power is fairly low) is still solid state.

Does this mean their 25W and 50W 4-tube amps are also not true tube amps?

Can you recommend reasonably priced true tube amp?
