On a high quality tube amp the output transformers are the most important part even over expensive tubes.
JJ300Bs can be got for $200 a pair and sound good.
I like to use tubes that can be got for cheep and outperform these boutique over priced tubes.

 

I can vouch for this. My LCDs and HE-500 sound excellent with the C3G-300b

There's no one amp or headphone to serve them all. I wouldn't know which one to choose. But if I really had to choose 1 amp and 1 headphone that could do all pretty good, it would be the Sennheiser HD650 with a Bottlehead Crack (as I don't have the Glenn OTL)

Some pursuits begin innocently enough. For those electronic consumers that get consumed by electronics, they might wanna pass on the pet python. :wink_face:

Or the Decware CSP2+ with the HD650's....I suspect the CSP2+ and the Crack are pretty close to each other.

Ahem... Pre-Owned. :ksc75smile:

I do want a CSP2+ one day, such a beautiful amp.

I got extra discount on my Crack, didn't even pay $200 and a friend of mine built it for free.

Life is good

Hey, I got one of those. And it was modded by none other than Glenn himself. Unfortunately it is 110v only. :(

 

Glenn's Mod of my CSP2+. He even updated the headphone jack to a really good one. His mods make this CSP2+ vibrant and alive and it sounds much better, too. Ahhhhh.

 

 

Using the 596 with a GlennAdapter. :)

There is barely any room left to put it back in the case!
