The all silver finish really looks good.

It states "higher volume with upgraded power supply". I wonder if that's in regards to the EMP's or EMA's power supply. Looks like it would be a good match with Grado's.

Nice match for the PS-1

I wonder how they compare with the EMP AE.

I wish they'd make a verson priced for mere mortals.

My thinking it is somewhere between the EMP and EMP A.E.

Or if we are really lucky it's the EMP a.e just in a cheaper casing.

Wow, very cool indeed. I actually hated the gold accents on the EMP, just too bling for me, and considered chroming them or something. But I've subsequently gotten used to it. But this new Silver edition does look nice.

I don’t know if the silver version or AE will be much better, but I had a PS-1 into my EMP and whoa, the bass needed to be reigned in! Didn’t seem like a good combo to me.

My thinking is it’s the AE power supply without the fancy flight case and the uber expensive NOS tubes.

You could be right. I still miss my old EMP. While I don't think it would be good with the ps-1 (I prefer the emp a.e with this phone) I do prefer the EMP with the Rs-1

Mr. Hecke said that it should sound the same as EMP A.E.!
and Mr. Brocksieper like the SE even a bit better then the Anniversary.

For me, I don't feel like the SE's color a forward design. It makes the amp looks cheap.

Did you guys buy tubes from TAD before? Some of their own designed and produced tubes looks so great. Just wonderring how it compare with some big brand NOS tubes.

here is my self-made EarMax Pro "Golden Edition". how it looks ?

This is what the UK distributor says,he has a pre-production unit.

'Although it uses the higher powered PS, it is not quite as good as the
Anniversary, and the valves are regular as on the Pro.

The finish is very different - a metallic polymer, and the fittings are
chrome-plated and not gold-plated.'

It's not a ltd edition

Lots and lots of editions using the same technology? I wonder.

Thinking about it if it uses the larger PS it should sound the same as the Anniversary.The only electrical difference between the EMP and Anniversay was the larger power supply.The internals of the Anniversary amp unit are the same as the EMP.

The Earmax Anniversary has an additional conductor from the power supply to the amp (4) and has 7 times more gain than the Pro. If this is true could the above statement be true also? Is it just the beefed up power supply that is providing the additional gain? If I recall correctly the additional wire has something to do with lowering the noise floor.

The only thing I could see that was different was the extra condutor,the actual circuit appeared identical.
