"Super 6SN7 Edition" was what I had in mind. "Super Earl" has a nice ring to it though. Wow .... you were pretty close.

Every customer gets individual advises and guiding in what could be a good amp and options for them, hence most probably every amp will have a different price tag.
This is one of the great features of Singlepower, imho.

If anyone is curious the baseline Supra XLR is $3500, which was quoted to me by Mikhail when I spoke to him yesterday.

Hmm - that is Maestro ZR territory. The Supra XLR will be a serious contender then, unless the options for it will make the eventual price shoot through the roof due to the fact that you might need two of everything.

I don't know anything abou the Maestro pricing, but yes, upgrades do cost quitea bit, becasue as you say, you ewssentially would need to pay double for evertying as it is essentially 2 boards. which need to be populated.

The bass is good, but not especially powerful or full sounding, and here is where the tube being optimized for the circuit would probably improve the performance considerably. This tube has a large heater current draw so you need atleast a Supra level transformer. I will let you know what I think of this tube after a couple weeks of testing.
ooh! a mystery! i love tube mysteries!

let me guess - a 6EM7? 6BL7? 6BK7?

It's a 6BL7. HE confirmed it in the Ohio Meet thread, and he's actually testing another tube too.

While we are waiting for some interesting special jobs ordered lately, I thought it would be a good idea to highlight the base models in bold in the first post in this thread. It must be easy to loose the overview of what is what with all customization.

I think that it is important to once again point out that this list is not an official product list by SP. It is simply an attempt to identify, roughly, different versions of the base models. If a customized base model differs considerably from the original, I think one can talk about a different model. Note, a so called maxed out base model I don't think can de considered a different model: It is a base model with a lot of the offered, and by SP published, options.

the ES-1 probably should get highlighted too in that case. I believe it is now pretty much a production unit with a finished look / design and at least a couple of orders.

Yes I think so too. However, and this is the weak point of this list; unless Mikhail put it on the product list on the homepage, it feels awkward to call it a Singlepower base model. Then again, it is a fundamentally different amp, and, Mikhail has been very conservative in which models to have in the official programme. Equally questionable, but then for another reason, is the PPX3-6SN7, IMO. In the light of the latest developments with socket adaptors, sometimes with build-in compensation-circuits, I think it does not warrant a base model label anymore. Please post arguments against!

I think we should await some more elaborate reports and impressions on the ES-1 before making up our minds. AFAIK, the ES-1 hasn't embarked on the maiden voyage just yet: It left the dry dock but has been taken in again for modifications. Correct me if I am misinformed.

For the one that hasn't noticed it yet, Moon Audiohas a bit more elaborated SP product range list than www.singlepower.com. Apparently in co-operaship with SP.

I think we have a new, unofficial, Singlepower model: The Supra 392.
post #73 of 167
I have heard several rumours about a new transportable, hybrid amp from Singlepower.
Can anybody tell me more about it?

Also, does Mickail post here, if so what is his member name?
