think Glenn can make a SET 2A3 with 5U4G/422A? maybe c3g as well?

 

Most likely, I did ask for 45 before but decided on 300B since I have them with WA5LE already.

I'm listening to Blade Runner on red vinyl on my Glenn Amp Monos.

I'm so impressed again. I'm floating. I better watch out for those Replicants.

Wow! What was the occasion? Well, I don't think anyone needs a special occasion to enjoy good pizza in Little Italy!

No occasion:bigsmile_face: Just spent a day in the city :)

Maybe.  It's not that I can't make it, I just really don't care for traveling.  Always been that way for some reason.  I'm not very far from RMAF really but I can't convince myself to go.  I have a friend in the Twin Cities, so there is some incentive there I guess.

I need to get a copy of that record.

Maybe all of you who are playing amp du jour should just get a turntable!

And what a great day it was, wasn't it? Warm and clear. I should go to Little Italy more often. Did you go to Stella Pastry & Cafe for desserts? If you didn't, you should the next time you're in SF.

As a matter of fact, we did:bigsmile_face: My mom got a canoli, I didn't get anything:tongue_smile: We then went to City Lights, then to Vital Tea Leaf, Music Lovers, and Bronstein. Fun day!

Sophia mesh, waiting for the WE300B reissue or the Takatsuki 300B when I visit Japan.  Was thinking to get the EML but decided to wait.

45 Update - I'm still trying to determine if the DT880s don't sound good on the amp because they are 600 ohm or because they are Beyers.  :D  The OTL naturally suits these types of phones with some added midbass and a mellow upper mid/lower treble range.  The 45 is very linear in the bass region and fairly lit up throughout the upper registers (not bright, just lively) so the thin sounding DT880 just becomes too top heavy.  The sibilance is pretty unbearable at anything but low volumes too.  Really, though, it seems like more than that, the overall sound is just sort of anemic.  I'm not sure if I'm barking up the right tree with the impedance match theory though, since SS amps often have an output impedance of less than 1 ohm and people use these and HD800s with success all the time.  I'd like to solve this mystery just for the sake of knowing.

 

In fairness I can switch the DT880s over to the OTL and I'm still not impressed at all.  It sounds less skeletal but still sibilant and thin overall.  The LCD-2/45 combo is just so much better, if it weren't for the wonky imaging the LCDs are so infamous for this would be pretty close to the perfect sound for me.

 

The amp seems to like 120 ohms just fine.  I have few cans to try other than the LCD-2 and DT880 so I'm scraping the barrel.  These are my Yuin G1A clip-ons, with a bad right driver to boot.  Sounds nice anyway, very open and balanced.  These are prone to sibilance but I'm not getting any here.

I am only 3 hours from the Twin Cities and I have relatives there...Easy to make that trip.

Have you tried the Carbon Plate Sophia (or Full Music)?  This is what I'm thinking of trying next year when I join the Glenn 300B club.
