Sunday, my 2359glenn-custom built OTL amp enjoyed its 1 year anniversary (695 hrs).

Wat did you get it for its 1st birthday?

And do you really keep track of hours on your amps :O Impressive!

I was going to sit-in and play some great music with it. But decided to do movie night. Currently on the iPod/HD650; Tuesday/Wednesday may pair the OTL with the TT.

Happy Listening!

SO, you'll need to do more time with your HD650's. Lucky thing you have a few HP related items to use with them!

Do you like the sound of the HD650s with the OTL .  I think they sound pretty good with it I have a pair of HD650s and a pair of HD800s.

I do think the 650s sound good for what they cost.

I never tried my HD650 yet but my Maestro GMP400 sound very good.

The HD650s sound really good in the OTL you should try them when you get a chance.

You are giving me a huge task Glenn, come on! very_evil_smiley.gif

 

Can I try them when my sweets arrive listening to The Love Unlimited Orchestra? tongue_smile.gif

A lot of people were very impressed with the sound of the HD650 when I paired it with Glenn's OTL amp at last year's Nor-Cal Meet.

 

This is from Questhate's Nor-Cal Feb 11, 2012 Impressions Thread post:

 

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 this post from Rockofeller.

Throw in a RAL cable and you'll be so close to Nirvana!
