She means the Glenn OTL

I'm contemplating the 2359OTL also as a move up from my WA3(mod). I'd like to be able to run the 6528 and 6336 tubes. smily_headphones1.gif

yes, but does she mean the Glenn otl is half the price of the WA2 or the WA5? If its WA2 then  - - WOW! I'm interested, very interested.

You read it right.  It is half of WA2.

post #5916 of 10672

WA2 I presume

Ok i want a glenn amp now. I presume the OTL is only for high impedance cans. 

post #5918 of 10672

Well that's what OTL is for ;)

Although I have to say that my low impedance 25 ohms Denon D7000 sound fantastic on his OTL.

And my LCD-3s sound great on it too.  I usually pair the LCD-3s with the Leben, but they sound really nice in the OTL.

What do you think? Scratch the leben plans and get an OTL? Is it really that good with planars?

Really? if that is true and if dubstepgirl can confirm this after she auditions hers then i will most definitely be getting one. Looks like i could be joining the Glenn club soon!!! I'm excited now.

The OTL performs well with 32 Ohm Grado's (2359glenn) and 25 Ohm Denon's (SO)... and the usual fare 50 Ohms and up. I had a month with the HD-600 (300 Ohm) and DT-990 (600 Ohm) and thought the D7000 would be exposed on the impedance mismatch front.

 

Surprisingly, this was not the case with the 2359glenn OTL/D7000 pairing. But previously heard comments from WA2 owners and/or listeners that the Woo didn't do so well with low impedance cans.

I already have a Leben!  I didn't say the OTL sounds better than the Leben (the Leben is 7x the price), but they really sounded nice with the OTL.

Which leben? is it the one they don't build anymore? I heard that amp was amazing. a well respected audiophile at the meet i went to yesterday said it was the best headphone amp that he ever heard. Same guy had a 16,000 euro power amp.
