Best looking tube amp - Page 81
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I was looking for the "worst looking tube amp" thread and couldn't find one, so I'll just leave this here for you:
I nearly didn't post it because I had to state that I wasn't uploading offensive material....
I just found the product page for it...only $1,800
Not exactly the typical headphone amp but design-wise I like it, if for nothing else because it's something different:
I don't know its price but it uses silver transformers and Elrog 211 tubes and I know the price for a pair of those so I suspect it'll be a case of 'if you need to ask, it'll be too much'. More info here: http://vinylsavor.blogspot.com (btw, lots of interesting designs with a variety of tubes there, the owner of the site is a long standing diyaudio member, no idea if he's on head-fi).
Story behind the Elrog tubes (only in 211 an 845 to my knowledge) is very interesting, it's what happens when contemporary engineering company in Germany is asked to produce an audio tube using modern techniques. Something about the Elrog tubes:
