There is no simple answer to this :   Tube amps generally fall into the following OTC = output transformer coupled OTL = output transformerless  OCL = output capacitorless   I guess strictly speaking you could have any number of amps ( solid state and vacuum state ) fall into these categories. The problem is not every OTC amp sounds the same because there are several design elements which go into the amplifier itself and the various transformers impose a sound of...
 No , LG is a tube hybrid. OTC/OTL etc is reserved for "pure tube" amp , not that most of them today don't have any solid state active devices in them. The tube in the LG offers the voltage ( signal ) amplification, the buffer is completely neutral and offers current amplification ( ability to drive practically any headphone ) . The unique attributes of the LG is that the design allows you to experience the subtle ( and sometimes not so subtle ) differences with...
 Yes , it is possible and indeed probable :) . LG makes for a great preamp when not driving headphones. It has been too long since I heard the AKG K812 with the LG but I still regularly pick up my K501s with mine and they sound fantastic. ..dB
I have a spare assembly - send me your address and I will send them off to you. The cups have holes drilled in them but hopefully you can salvage the strut. The holey cups actually worked well and sounded great , you might want to play with them too..dB
I have been away for too long - that is an amazing looking case !! Great work on the website too ..dB
Maybe I need to buy those YH100 back :) ..dB
You get to be the first to own a very cool piece of gear ..dB
Transformer can be wired either way , so it can e made to handle 240V ..dB
iQEM your memory serves you well. There were 2 BMF's in this thread - BlueMonkeyFlyer who is our ever vigilant modifier and measurement guru and Boilermaker Fan, who now spends more time on the farm. It can all merge a little after a while.    Looking forward to seeing some measurements on the 3 modded fostexen, have you already measured them in stock form BMF?   ..dB   Edit -- getting old
aaah no   I forgot to get back to you with a real answer - this is the silliest headphone   There are 2 screws on the outer baffle that hold the driver assembly like a pivot. Loosen these and the drivers will fall out as in the picture , I will see if I have any pictures saved for you .     Edit - found and sent, now lets see you work your magic
