No one has the BA4 yet. It will be available in a few weeks. I'm third on the list. I was just making a point that ciems don't have to cost fortunes.

Gleen amo that he built for Dminches souded excellent with the HD800 and the T1. Very powerful with great dynamics.

Ice just come to terms with something. I travel 5-8 times a year, I don't need an expensive portable
How about a Beyer DT1350 and get a Glenn OTL amp?

I really liked the 1350's. I sold them, but I enjoyed them very much. I have never heard any of Glenn's amps, but several people who's opinions I trust are very impressed with his products.

I got the plan! Getting Heir Audio IEM 5.0's then in June getting one of Glenns OTL's. Plan done.

Has anyone removed the caps on the C3G tubes by any chance?

I haven't the tools nor the skill.

 

The C3g looks wonderful under that black satin metal shield.

Triple mica, gold pins and gold grid.

 

C3m with shield removed. For size reference of the enclosed tube to the shielded C3g.

There was a lot of good music and a lot of good sound but the best of the best was the Glenn OTL and the T1. This combination was fantastic.

 

Now I have to go out and get a pair.

Glenn builds one of the best OTL amps and loves this hobby as much as the most dedicated of us.

Problem is he loves and enjoys building amps way too much.

 

L I hope you slow him down a bit and get him mown the lawn.

post #2215 of 10637

LOL I hope he slow down only after he build my amp. I was impressed with  Glenns work I ordered one for my hd800. Now the agony of the wait lOL but I understand. they sound incredible and Glenn a great guy.  

post #2216 of 10637

Glenn never listens to me anyway so don't worry!!!!!!!

On the C3m, Shigeki Yamamoto reports better sonics with shield removed. Speaking of which, if possible with adapter, I'd like to try the C3m inside my OTL amp.

Other than for protecting the glass, what is the purpose of the shield?

If I understood well it's to keep the heat inside

Interesting. What is it about that type of tube that requires more heat than a regular unshielded tube?
