Hi guys,
Happy new year again

Connected the line out to my mixer and then headphones, only the maste rvolume is working,

The sound is good, i mean the respond is nice, but the sound is not muffled but on "the darker side"

The chords separation is still nice, what can i do

Eq in front of return
Eq after line out

It will be darker just plugging into the power amp in jack. The preamp does all the sound shaping.
Maybe you just need a new tube in the preamp, it's a Valvestate right?
Worth a shot, be very careful, up to lethal voltages can be there whether plugged in or not.
If any of this is unfamiliar, get it to a tech and have them do it.
