Anyone had a look at the OTL I posted before? Any opinion?

Not sure man, from the outside it looks cool for sure :D

 

The schematics look fairly simplistic, but then again I am not knowledgeable enough to make any determinations circuit wise.  How much does it cost?  There is a bit of a resale risk, as I am not sure too many people have heard of it?

Does not the Roc do that?

What music do you listen too?

Im not sure how I can describe the Roc compared to the v181 right now, but I will once I do my review.  I listen to everything except rap and country.  I lean towards electronic, jazz, blues, r&b, chillout, newage and rock a majority of the time.  But I have music of all types minus the rap & country.  

 

 

Back to Massy's quest.  My vote is that you go MapleTree, if for some reason you don't dig it....it is a breeze in regards to resale.

Looking forward to your review...maybe I could wait that before going for a new tube amp :-)

Well, I couldn't resist!

There was a Earmax Pro for sale, and I trade my HE-5LE for it...and now I'm listening to it :-) We've just complete the trade

 

I'm using the AKG K240DF, high impedance, low sensitivity, but the Earmax can drive them easily.

Everything sounds so different: the soundstage is more organic, deeper, but the listening position is closer, it's like being on a first row, while I used to listen from the 10th.

 

Listening now to some Schubert's sonatas...

Now you can look forward to tuberolling.

I have to read something about tube rolling :-) But first I have to buy again some HD650!!

So, hypothetically, between the Woo WA3 and the WA6 - if you were NOT interested in the ability to drive low impedance phones, but were only interested in driving something like the 600 ohm Beryer T1, which would be better suited?

Or is that too much of a subjective question?
