This means Grados could actually work quite well with this switch........this is looking better and better

 

Glenn has mentioned that only high current rectifiers should be used ( 3DG4, GZ37 & WE422A ) in such case i.e. for driving low impedance phones by using the 5998 switch with 6336 output tubes


You can also use 5AU4 & 5AW4 others will work but it will be pushing them to the max.

Almost like my setup, I'm really happy with Perfect Wave MKII > Glenn OTL > HD800.

Ahhhh.....very nice.....I am so glad to hear this

Has anyone tried a 5687 as a driver in their OTL? This tube is most notably used in the Audio Note Ongaku along with the 211 and 6072. To my eyes at least, with an adapter, it looks like this tube should work....

Do you think the Peefect Wave MKII can be too forward sounding?

Not at all, I found it very neutral and detail but not clinical.

+1 I agree with this.

Here are a few pictures of my latest amp I am building.

 

Front with Amphenol military grade 4 pin XLR and 1/4" TRS jacks.

Gold point stepped attenuator.

 

 

 

This one shows the 6AS7 to 5998/6336 switch.
