Down to my last three... on the fence... no indication of what I'll do... will sit for now.

Oh, I've located the Pirate's Booty! Just not willing to pay my broker what she's asking. :mad:

596 is a great tube, unique sound that takes a departure from the sound of most tubes, yet still grounded and coherent with warmth dependent on your gear. However, the metal mullard is better (and has the most similar sound to it) as well as the 422a and u52, the 596 still sounds different but i would sadly place it in a level below. Its still one of my favorites though.

Well i turned down the used Stratus i was planning on buying, since I don't listen as much anymore due to work. Mostly just some tube amp for later this year and well the HE-560 so maybe I can get rid of speaker amp and he-6

Been thinking of Glenn 300b too...

Same here, I feel bad either of the Glenn OTL or beta was turn on for almost a month.  I have some free time in between but I think work will pickup again in a week or two.

 

Glenn 300B, I'm think that too to replace the OTL (I may keep it too).  5U4, C3g, and 300B will be my ideal choice.  

post #29632 of 39044
Do u know price of 300b from glenn?

And the otl is very good, i just dont wanna buy all the expensve tubes, but glenn300b only needs a WE422A or U52 and a good 300b pair. Wa5 is other option. Except i do not want 6sn7

oh your a dark horse! That he560 is repulsive! ew - i wont be getting that yoke. The 300b i had played around with getting but it is not guaranteed to sound top notch with HD800. If you wanna stick with planars it would be perfect id say. 

 

I can imagine it would be a savage rig    - Glenn 300b - planars - 2 nice sensitive floor standers 

 

 

You still plan on buying back the HD800 - i suppose you could always use the GSX with it.

My custom WA5 mono blocks were spec'd with Siemens C3g drive tubes with Jack signing off on the design replacement. Something to think about.

Lol like the Katy Perry song? biggrin.gif

And i agree, looks wise its hideous, but if it sounds good, maybe i can get rid of aging he-6 thats hard to drive and needs bulky speaker amp. I havent completely ruled a stratus out, just dont want it right now cause i want to save money, but if a used one pops up in future months...

Hd 800 rebuy is still planned.

DNA is set in stone for me. I only care about HD800 these days 

 

I will get a Glenn amp as well but have put it off for a while due to an awful lot of weddings (my god damn friends keep deciding they are gonna get married)

Glenn has agreed to hold off on the build which was sound of him. I need to think more about what i want in the Glenn amp when i do get it. I bought tubes for

the OTL from Xcalibur but i might change to a 300b maybe. 

 

 

I will have the DNA after the summer if all goes well. Then will probably sell WA2/T1 and fund the Glenn amp with that. I think the Glenn amp will be a speaker/headphone amp. I wont need it to power HD800 because i will have the DNA for that. 

 

 

Imagine these side by side ¬ 

 

  

 

talk about turning heads!
