Wishing him the best!


LOL. Or after I come to, I will roam the halls looking from my amps. "Where'd they go?"

Try to find the older style that has both top and side getters.  They're typically labeled Zenith (though not made by) because these tubes were designed for use in Zenith TVs.  I'm parroting info Glenn has given us previously here for the record.  :D

 

Amongst the shorter glass style that are side getter only I personally like the Sylvania best.  The difference between Sylvania/GE/RCA is quite subtle though, and you can easily buy every type and try for yourself since the tube costs nothing and is not in demand.  Another thing I have found is the ones with slightly taller glass seem to fare a tad bit better as well vs. the shorter glass.  The shorter it is the newer the production I think.

You can have my head Clayton, aside from providing a perch upon which to place headphones it rarely does me any good.  :tongue_smile:

Thanks. They reattached my head. I'm back to normal but now my amps sound different. Head rolling/tube rolling--this has got to stop.

Sometimes in this hobby, we think moar is better - so I dropped 50 miles to ensure a better outcome (Redondo Beach > Malibu > Redondo Beach)! :normal_smile :

Hello guys, just chiming in to report that already unpacked the amp and hook everything up.  Using a balanced to rca cable from my DP-1 because the rca from the dac is already used by my other amp.  Too lazy and tired I guess.  I used a Yamaha YH-1 with 1/4" and a Yamaha HP-1 with 4pin xlr.  Glenn said I could use both at the same time limited if they are similar cans.  Between the two I prefer the HP-1 sound.  So im going to keep listen to the 4pin for this early evaluation. 

 

This thing is a back breaker, I have to guess close to 30-33 pounds.  And those foam tubes, I thought they were never going to end when unpacking.:D  But thank to Glenn the amp arrived safe and sound. 

 

Have a feeling this is going to be a long night for me.

 

Thanks Glenn for the work of this amp.  It looks better in person than the photos.

Nero was before Henry, he tried a few heads on until he settled for the RudiStor one.

Do they sound upside down or did you get a channel swap Right to Left?

Congratulations George, happy listening!

Thanks Stavros.  After 2 hours of warmup I decided to have a little bit critical listening.  Well rested and of course a nice hot shower.  Norah Jones, Come Away with Me, sounds pretty good on the instruments and its very easy to hear the layers of sound of each instrument.  Vocals its another story.  Its hard to say but it doesnt sound as natural as my other amp.  A tad harch and unrefine.  Soundstage is pretty good and background is quite but I could hear a faint hum, very minimal but its there.  Using my LFF Paradox phone-Sylvania 6336A-RCA 3DG4-VR102.  And a el cheapo monoprice xlr to rca cable.  When I have more time this week, I will most likely replace it with a GZ37 and better cables.  Also need to buy another Pangea power cable to properly feed it more juice.  In this time limited session with Glenn 6336 OTL amp it been a real eye, in this case ear opener.  Definitely need more time to find the right combo of tubes.  Overall quite a nice amp and on par with my last tube amp the LD MK6+.

This would be the New Style OTL I presume. Do note you're not an official 2359Glenn owner without having posted pictures here ;)
