This one is a good deal or not?

I'd say thats a pretty good deal. Make sure it is properly packaged for shipping, however. Assembled Bottlehead amps don't tend to ship well, due to the "gravity chassis". Check the Bottlehead website for packing tips. See here: http://www.bottlehead.com/loosep/packing_your_bottlehead_gear_for.htm

I think its an OK price without the speedball upgrade.  I'd find more info about the tubes it has.  that might sway the value factor

   My hunch say that Crack would be a better choice. Its tube rolling capability. Plus it doesn't require match paired tube.

   It is like having different amps when you change tubes. Mullard & Sieman --they are different.

   Mullard is more romantic but Siemans is more on hifi sound

   Plus you can add the speedball upgrade

   From my understanding, it can even use 6922 tubes but the socket needs to be change.

   So you indirectly have many tweaking mechanism here

   If i am not mistaken , from Tyle from  inner fidelity find it the sound coming from Crack ( without speedball) is pretty hard to distinguish the quality

   when compared to   WooAudio 3.

 

 

   Many good reviews  saying crack  is compatible with   Hd600 & HD650 & HD800  . It can even drives other headphones as well

   To be able to make HD800 sings, well that is something, really something for that price range.

    HD800 is well known for its finicky attitude.

 the best way is to purchase the 240 transformer  from crack headquarters.

 exchange it with the 120v transformer inside it. that would not be complicated.

 Go to an electrical shop & ask them to do it for you if you are afraid doing it yourself.

  well that depends on the kva of the trans  . the more , the heavier

Thanks for the idea. How to know I need 120v or 240v? I'm sorry for discussing Crack in HD 600 thread. :)

If he's selling from U.S, then the amp will be 120v. If you are in Europe then you will need a step up transformer to 240v.

Looks good. They didn't finish/paint/stain anything. Not a bad thing.
