I created this thread as a place to foster the exchange of our audio pursuits with 2359glenn - Member of the Trade, as well as between each other. Some of us may already have or seek one of his custom amp builds, adapters or other audio solutions. And this is a place where we can discuss our activities...enjoy!
I first met Glenn when I sourced a pair of 6SN7>6DE7 adapters to place in my Woo Audio WA 6 Special Edition amp. Shortly thereafter, he asked if I'd like to audition other tubes and adapters in return for feedback. This was the start of a very satisfying relationship with the designer. And I learned a lot as he continued to solve problems or suggest mods for head-fier's with a wide variety of amps.
After sourcing tubes and adapters from Glenn for a year and a half, last month I decided I would buy my first amp from him in August. But then he released a 6AS7 based OTL amp. When I saw examples purchased by Xcalibur255 and Clayton SF, it was too much, I had to have one!
A couple of weeks in now, sitting on about 80 hours, there's new adventure inside the listening room. Will post new pix Fri/Sat.
Learning to listen and love... all over again,

I am currently using a different rectifier and drive tube than shown in the pix below. The amp accepts rectifiers 3DG4-5AU4-5V3. This morning I have the General Electric 3DG4 rectifier, Tung-Sol 5998 & Tung-Sol BGRP 6SN7GT installed. The amp is still working its wonder during break-in. Will report back with impressions soon.
