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?

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?

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.

A rectifier tube in the Crack? That would be a first.

There are lot's of impressions how different tubes sounding, but no real comparison to other amps, correct me if I'm wrong.

I know tubes can make a huge difference, but still you can say something about the basic design and signature.

Even now when I asked for someone to step up to the plate did I get any real answer. Opposite of a Leben. Not sure how I should interpret that.

post #5325 of 10310

Maybe you should interpret that that people don't really have a good answer for you.  Your tone seems to indicate that you think we are hiding something from you.

 

The Leben is a lush, warm amp, while being incredibly detailed.  Glenn's amp are a bit more neutral and dynamic.

 

Having said that, if you ask 10 people to describe something you will probably get 10 different answers, all without any frame of reference.
