BTW, if anyone is interested in an NOS pair of Centron 6336s let me know via PM.  I bought a quad but only need a pair.

That reminds me, I have some of the big Russian rectifiers (5U8C) discussed here in the past. Glenn made me an adapter for the OTL. It's very 596 like, but more power less detail? I'd have to revisit the tube I suppose. If anyone wants one, shoot me a PM.

Right now I am driving my speakers with Georges OTL headphone amp with 6336 output tubes.

it would be better if  they were 16ohms but not bad though.

Tremendous frequency response but limited power.

I am listening to my Glenn OTL with my T1s.  The tube compliment is a pair of GEC CV2523s, 1 GZ37 and a Sylvania 6SN7 WGT.  This is a perfect combination.

I have yet to put a 6SN7 in my OTL. I should try some. I have a shoebox full. ph34r.gif

What are you using instead?

post #5302 of 10689
6F8G mostly. I have a 1633 in right now.

How do the amp with those tubes compare to the Leben?

They are completely different and they excel with different headphones

Don't be so cryptic in this thread.

I now how the Leben sounds. The opposite of a Leben would be a bright, analytical dry sounding amp, but I'm guessing it doesn't sound like that.

More neutral and clear like a DNA Sonett?

post #5306 of 10689
I wasn't being cryptic. I can't compare the 2 since I am also using different headphones. The T1s are dynamic and a tad bright while the LCD-3s are much more balanced. But that difference says more about the headphones than the amp.

Cryptic here?

 

Glenn has been revealing so many details that many designers/makers would never mention in a public forum.

Glenn truly seems interested in advancing the enjoyment of audio among members. Smoke & Mirrors? Check :wink_face:the local hardware store!

Sure he has and that's a good thing, but I don't know how many pages I've read by now with no one mentioning the basic sound of the amps, other than they sound very nice.

It's kind of frustrating by this point to be honest.

At least one detailed comparison with another amp would be helpful.

It's not a good thing, when some take advantage of your ideas to make a profit.

 

As for the sound, my GR Super 10 can be as musical as my RPO10B MKII and as fast and detailed as my BA.

 

I just enjoy music and don't write reviews.
