post #10036 of 11808

Too many naughty friends around...........

post #10037 of 11808

Just an FYI...

 

Chatham/Tung-Sol 6336A's (graphite plates, copper rods) are here and sound glorious with my Grado's! Very close to the 5998's with low impedance loads but quieter. Very spacious sounding with good bass impact and above average detail, super pleasant!

 

My 5998's do some crazy voodoo with the HD800's and my K240 Sextett LP's! Absolutely glorious! AND they sound pretty darned good with low impedance cans, although they are kinda noisy...

 

And lastly I snagged a pair of Chatham 6080's... they sound very good, pretty much the same as my Chatham 6AS7's but much quieter!

 

In short I like the...

 

5998

6080

6336

 

in that order with higher impedance loads, and...

 

6336

6080

5998

 

with lower impedance loads...

 

all dependent on mood really though lol All 3 sound very good, I was really surprised by how the 6336 sounded... very good detail, impact, extension and sound staging. However with my HD800's and sextett's the bass got boomy and uncontrolled. BUT they are very good with my Grado's and Audio Technica's!

 

I think I'm done rolling these lol Time to mess around with the driver and rectifier a bit (though I do love my current CV593 and RCA red bottom setup)

Hiya everyone! I have a HD650 (with the intention to get either the T1 or HD800 in the future) and I'm in a market for a good tube amp. Came across Glenn's amp after reading about the 300B from Ultrainferno's posts in the Dark Voice 339 thread. Unfortunately I've spent all my energy reading every page in that thread, and can't possibly read every page in this thread.

So far my options are crack + speedball, la figaro 339 and Woo WA2. Where would the 300B fit? Could somebody please direct me to a spec page?

Thanks very much! smily_headphones1.gif

There is no spec page. The 300B is not made for the HD650. You should go for Glenn's OTL amp, success guaranteed

Thanks! Looks like I might have to read all 671 pages of this thread after all! biggrin.gif

There is no spec page or website for 2359Glenn...this is it.

You really do need to read this entire thread...you have time.

 

hint: you want a 2359Glenn OTL for your HD650 - the 300B is better for low impedance and planars

 

Enjoy!

 

ps- I prefer the MAD Ear+ HD to the Crack, La Fig and Woo options you listed.

 

EDIT: Ultra is so fast!!

Glenn OTL it is then (I'm assuming it's for high impedence headphones). I started reading from page 600 and I'm up to 618 now. So far I've learned about SACD player, photography and alcohol. Such a fascinating thread! biggrin.gif

Owners speak fastest (and loudest)!

 

Are you ready for USA v. Belgium?

 

I'm going to abduct Clayton from work to make sure he's not rooting for Belgium!

Our beer is better I reckon! Our wine is pretty good too.

I'm at page 630 now, and waiting for Germany to start their football match.

I may have referenced these before but my memory fails me now. ;)

 

HD650 and the Glenn Amp OTL were impressive when paired and shown at the N.Cal meet in 2012: Click HERE:

Questhate: This is from One of my absolute favorite rigs there was the HD650 + custom 2359Glenn-built amp that was at Clayton SF’s table. I’ve tried to like the HD650 before, but couldn’t help but associate it with the dreaded “V-word”. On this particular amp, it was quite a revelation. It sounded open, airy and clear while still being warm and smooth. Anyone looking for a sub-$1000 endgame, I’d seriously give that pairing a consideration.

 

And HERE:

lurkumaural: Hearing the HD 650 become a different headphone entirely driven by Clayton's very special homebrew amp [Glenn's OTL].  I'm upset that it was such a big hit hahaha.
