Is there really any doubt that the EF5 will be better then the EF1? You guys are talking as if maybe the EF5 won't match the EF1, or that they are really close. That would not make any sense, it's obviously an improved/revised EF1. If nothing but the power supply changed I'd expect a nice improvement. Can you look at the OPAMP chip? Does it still use OPA275?
I don't know if I care for the tube shields, you can't use Tube Dampers with those, i'll probably run mine without them.
I haven't heard the CTH yet with the 6F8G..but from everything Smeggy tells me..it is supposed to be something special. I love the CTH cause it really lets you listen to the tube..nice buffer with lots of current to drive hard loads like orthos and compact as they come to boot.
It is not an EHHA for sure, but damn if I can fit the EHHA in my backpack
I actually on my way back from Canjam whipped out my CTh in the airport at night (while waiting for an early morning flight for 5 hours ) and was grooving with my Yamaha HP-2 orthos..what a sight that was.

I will certainly try the ZDT later of course, and maybe some portable amps too.
