post #5941 of 10646

The Leben is in storage now because I've been enjoying Glenn's mono blocks. The Leben CS600 uses 6CS7 drivers and 6L6GC power tubes and uses ss rectification--no glass. Glenn's uses 5U4G, #81 tube for the bias adjustment, C3g driver tube with metal shield, and the 300B power tube. This combination has a clarity that is slightly better than the Leben. The Leben has a lusher sound compared to my GlennAmpMonos. Glenn's amp-sound is more transparent. Those 300Bs sound great or maybe it is the C3gs. :)

I think you should store the Leben at my house... :evil:

Is the CS600 an ultralinear design?

An SS or hybrid.

I think I've heard him mention that he can build a great hybrid amp.

I've requested a hybrid amp before and said he could make it(I didn't ever buy it though..) 

 

To Glenn: Would a tube USB isolator be possible? Because I could be interested at the right price. Or just a regular USB isolator..

This is what a reviewer friend had to say about the 300B amp from Glenn

 

The 300B is good.

Full sound, weighty bass, not so bright. Typical tube smooth sound. Big sound stage, clean black background. Excellent dynamics for a 300B tube, decent pace. It's an all rounder amp. I just felt the dynamics a bit lacking from my usual standard but again I've been using the Studio Six. Sound stage size the 300B amp matches the Studio Six though.

 

Now if that isn't a compliment, I don't know what is!

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

post #5953 of 10646

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.
