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

Mine is the same as yours Tyrell, Clayton can have both.

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

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. 

 

 

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+.

Yay, he's back! Let's celebrate with an early desert!

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

Thanks to everyone for the welcome-back.

 

Those desserts look good (again).

 

Stavros told me to count tubes when they started the anesthesia. So I told him I would. The anesthesiologist said "This injection will relax you." I said thank you and then woke up in the recovery room. I didn't even get to say #1 5U4G... That's good stuff. And legal too.

 

I rearranged my bedroom (bad Idea) and when I woke up I tripped on everything that wasn't there before but is now there for the time being (huh?).

 

It is good to be back. The sound is really nice upside-down. ;)

Don't worry about the harshness, the Sprague caps will go through this twice before they settle.  It will settle and go away with more time.  It took my amp over 2 months before it stopped changing in sound.  You haven't heard what the amp is capable of in terms of transparency yet either.  It's a fun ride.

 

When I first listened to my OTL (feels like a long time ago now, whew) I remember telling Glenn my initial impression was that it felt "about on par" with my then WA6 for resolution.  A couple of months later I was eating those words big time.  The two amps ended up being in entirely different leagues and the WA6 was sold without my having ever really even listened to it again once I owned my OTL.

Oh and by the way I forgot to tell you because all of this is just coming back to me.

While I was under (out like a lamp), I dreamed of an updated Princess Leia (PL v.2.1) with headphones.

Beautiful dream. Where am I?

 

Nurse, turn up the volume, please.

Please allow me to rephrase you question.  Is it better than WA2?

Do you mean how does a Glenn OTL compare to a $6000 headphone amp?

Thanks biggrin.gif me and jc already worked something out though.

And curious how it compares not only to wa2, but also just tube amps in general, it will either be a complement, or the last tube amp ill ever need.

No no, you will need another Glenn amp on 3DG4/GZ34, C3g, and 300B amp.

I'd say it's the last OTL you'll need. I still want a SET amp.
