Tube Amp Suggestion for under 600$ ?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys,

 

Hope this hasn't been covered recently, so please let me know if it has.

 

I am looking for a nice Tube amp for max. 600 Bucks, just to get a feel for tube amps.

 

Until now im using my Lake People G99 which is VERY linear and accurate sounding and i like it alot but i want to expirment with some more coloured sound. I am not a big Bass head and like smooth mids and clear highs.

Musical Prefrences are mainly Jazz, Classical, RnB, Lounge....

 

Headphones beeing used Are HD600s, SRH840s and DT880s....

 

I heard the HD600 and DT880 sound fantastic wiht tubes and that just got me really intrested :)

 

 

Greets,

Looks pretty nice!

 

DO you have expirience with it?

No.  Sadly not.  Though if you willing to ship me one I'll report back on what I think!biggrin.gif

 

With your 600s and 880s the Woo3 being OTL would also be a good match.

MAD EAR + HD and it was designed using the HD600.

If you are interested in a bit of DIY, the Bottlehead Crack sounds good. I built one with the Speedball upgrade last week and it sounds great.

Ive heard good things about the elekit tu-882. You can get it as a kit with either all solder work done for around $445 where it takes maybe 10 mins to just screw together, or you can get it as a plan PCB and populate it yourself for $360 I believe. I've been reading a lot about them. Seems like amazing bang for the buck. Skylab gave it a great review, and its compact.too.
