I have just posted a review of Glenn's amplifier here: http://www.tweak-fi.com/apps/blog/show/42754587-building-a-reference-system-part-2-glenn-s-headphone-amplifier

 

The version of the amplifier I have is the one that allows the use of six-6BL7s as output tubes.

 

Below is a picture of the amplifier in my system:

 

 

The amplifier sounds fantastic. Thanks again Glenn for making such a terrific headphone amplifier!

Is that a special version of Glenn's OTL ?

There is only one area which is not adequately covered by the review  . The amazing price / performance ratio of Glenn's amp vis-a-vis other amps. I have had the good fortune of being able to try a few amps in the higher price range & IMHO based on my limited experience, you need to go up more than double the cost to get the same level of performance.

Thanks for the great write-up! 

 

This only makes me want to hear the Glenn OTL more now...

Hi punit, I suspect that price / performance ratio of Glenn's amplifier is exceptionally good. Though, given that I did not have amplifiers costing more, I could not attest about that.

 

Also, whenever I am reviewing a piece of gear, I try to forget about the price and try to describe it "as is". Nonetheless, if I try to compare it to other amplifiers I have listened to, I would say that his amplifier has indeed the highest performance relative to price I have come across. 

 

Moreover, if one were to be to shopping for a speaker amplifier, I don't believe that there is anything in the four figure range that can approach it. As a matter of fact, I have simply never heard an amplifier that had that many qualities.

When I ordered my amplifier from Glenn, he told me at the time that the only other amplifier he had made with 6BL7 tubes was rosgr63's. I do not know if he has made similar ones since then.
