^ Wow, Ultra-, that's cool. Who else owns a GlennAmp 5U4, C3g, 300B?

post #5942 of 11602

Glenn, you and me only I suppose.

Glenn told me 3DG4, C3g, and 300B will drive it better than my WA5LE. My next amp from Glenn.

I am all for it. Glenn saying that he can make a better amp than the WA5LE I am mightily impressed.

The thing to making a great sounding 300B amp is
The output transformer #1
And the driver tube #2
post #5946 of 11602
I dont have my LCD2 anymore but a LFF Paradox and some yamaha orthos along with a Nad rp18 and it really sings with my Glenn otl with 6336 tubes. It has more power than my Liquid Glass amp but a bit shy in the soundstage and micro dynamics. Then again i only have it for a week and it clearly getting better with each use. its also less picky about driver tubes. In my LG some 6f8g and most B36 tubes it has a hiss or noise sound. in Gleens otl I dont hear the noise. My guess is Glenn will be loaded with 300b orders soon. I might go that route come this time next year.

Just looked at your 300b man that thing is nice. Is it strictly headphones? what 300b's do you like in it, and what GZ34's If you don't mind me asking? Hopefully you haven't discussed this to death on other pages. :popcorn:

So its good with the planars? Interesting. Have you got pics of your amp?

I don't have 300Bs to roll. Glenn made it for the JJ's so I'm sticking to them. Haven't tried any GZ34 yet, somewhere in this thread I gave my impressions on all the rectifiers I had at that time. I should update the list.

To me the best ones are the GZ37 Mullard, RK60/1641 and the RCA 5U4GB

Good news all round, they are not that expensive which is great. I must ask Glenn about prices when he is not too busy. I would like to go for the otl but if it doesn't sound all the great then maybe the 300b is a better option. Well, its obviously a better option but it would be nice if i could get away with the OTL.

Where exactly did you hear that?

 

I must have missed the review.

:thumb: It's great to see this expressed. It shines the light on a designer's ability to voice the amp.

He's talking about the OTL in combination with planar magnetic headphones Stavros.

post #5955 of 11602

Stavros--all I need to get is the phyllo dough and I'll be able to make your treasured dessert. That was the missing ingredient otherwise I would have made it this last weekend.

 

I was at the Walt Disney Family Museum yesterday. If anyone has a change, go visit. A fun walk through animation and Disney's rich and colorful history. I saw an old film editing unit that had tubes in it. At least I could identify the undersides of its sockets. I couldn't see the actual glass.

 

If anyone comes to visit SF make sure you go there--after pizza in Little Italy, right wolfetan44?
