Which is why I wanted to have a good idea of what my limitations are.

The Glenn amp has arrived.....

 

the box alone surprised me, its huge!! and its completely covered in tape, very well packaged, even if the box split open, the tape itself would probably hold everything together.

 

 

 

then i opened the box and everything was protected with giant foam noodles! its like the coolest thing ever, i would of never thought of using that! 

 

 

 

and the amp, i'm just setting it up right now, its heavy! and the build quality looks incredible, definitely on par if not better than the woo amps. very heavy very solid feeling. and the on button, i love it!!! it has a nice heavy satisfying click when you press it. 

 

 

 

so now the listening begins.... putting in some cheap tubes for now to gete an idea of the amp. (Sylvania 5U4G, RCA 6AS7G, Grey glass 6SN7). Next, the two 3DG4 tubes he included (Lindal and Sylvania branded) and maybe my new spare GEC curveds that also arrived! :D

I hope you continue to like it.

The dynamics might improve with the 3DG4 or GZ37 or WE422 rectifiers

i put 3DG4 in right now. seems like it has more power than 5U4G. i have to many tubes to roll i don't know where to start though.

 

ill try those out though.

 

btw does GZ32 and U52 work as well?
