Alright I know this is head-fi but I am sure I can get some insight on amplifiers other than headphone amps as well.
I currently want a new amplifier for my computer system and headphones. Currently I was looking at the Glow audio amp one and the Woo audio amps (something close to the price of the amp one).
My dad's business partner builds tube amps as a hobby and has been doing so for many many years. My dads current high end system was built by him ( i think he has monoblocks and a preamp... not sure what tubes). and sounds wonderful.
I don't know too much about amps ( more than some people though) but where I am going with this is I have this tube amp he built a long time ago. I probably have had it for 10 years.
I would like you guys to take a look at these pictures and let me know what you think. Is this as good, worse, or better than the amp one or woo audio. It is a pre and poweramp with no headphone jack. I am wondering if I could have him build one in. The tubes have also not been changed in who knows how long so that would probably be something I need to do. I am also thinking about having him build me a nicer amp as well for my stereo system.
Anyways, here is the pictures. If you need any others to help let me know...
The tubes from what I can see are: 6by5, 8bq5's and in the preamp 7au7's
