im hoping theres a group buy soon so we can all get some! :D

 

im really interested in what the rk60 sounds like. whether its poor man's 596, or just different altogether, will be interesting.

I WAN T A SET 300B MADE BY GLENN.  Glenn we need to talk about that. Sometime early next year i hope to have one built. An amp to power LCD3, HD800 and T1. I just sold another pile of records so i have the cash now. I just need to figure out the details. :veryevil: :ph34r::popcorn::veryevil:

:D Your amp materialized so fast, I'm suspicious. Could the studio already be in holiday production mode... with Elves, no less?!

My 300b doesn't do high impedance, I hope yours does and then I'll be jealous. :D

Nice amp JC/Glenn, I'll probably get an OTL in '14 as well. But the next revision of course ;)

My amp was originally going to use the 10.  We feared it was not going to have enough gain and came up with the alternative C3g that has been working out so well now.  Still wish I could have heard the 10, it is described with nothing but reverence by the people who use them.  They last foreeeeever with those thoriated tungesten filaments too.

I think to really make these work for high impedance we would have to have custom OPTs wound with a high impedance secondary tap.  Electra-Print could do it, you could have an 8 ohm tap and a 120 ohm tap for example but it costs a lot more.  Then you just do an impedance selector like Woo and a dozen other makers use.

On the subject of C3g:  the ones marked POST were the batch runs made for Deutsch Telecom as a final buyout so they would have inventory available to run their obsolete equipment.  The ones without the POST marking were made for the German military.  According to Jac there is no difference between the two.  People prefer the POST ones because the very high run volumes supposedly help ensure good build consistency from tube to tube, but really I doubt it matters at all.  I have some of each, the non-POST ones are what is in my amp right now.

Thanks! I knew you'd know. :)

Your correct, Glenn says its the gain issue. I was thinking on a 300b amp that would be my last tube amp. At least for a long long time. Still plenty of time to figure this out since I'm still greatly enjoying my otl amp.

opps wrong quote.
