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?

No GZ32 not high enough current GZ34 is OK though. I am not familiar with the U52 hold off on that one till I get back to you on that one

been listening for a few hours, and well, this amp is very good. still have to get used to the sound before i post some solid impressions. as of now, it sounds as good if not better than the woos. i can see it easily costing 3 times its price. even with stock tubes, the glenn amp sounds incredibly good!

 

i still have a ton of tubes to try out. but i decided to just try some of the best i had, and well, the WE422A, yeah its incredible.

 

 i have all sorts of impressions on the other tubes, but as soon as i put this tube in. it just hits me, that air, that emotion, almost brings you to tears as soon as you hear it, its beautiful, the music, its unreal, its so pure, the tone is the most beautiful i've heard, the details, the holography, it just so good, i can't even describe it, it just draws you in to the music and you don't want to do anything else but just listen and connect. 

 

anyways, i bought another one cause they seem to running out on ebay.

Nice DG, does the WEs have more gain than the GEC?  How does the WE rectifier compare to 3DG4?

3DG4 is surprisingly good. 

 

honestly alot of the cheap rectifiers, not too much difference. some of the nicer ones so far, not a huge difference, not till u get to the expensive ones. they all sound good actually. these are all brief listens though, i have to take time to listen to tubes longer as well as when the amp is burned in and i get a feel for its general sound signature. its nothing like the woo amps where the cheap tubes make the amp sound like crap and you need to upgrade. sounds like this amp sounds pretty alright with cheap stock tubes.

This is great stuff. Have you got 6336 tubes lying around? Maybe after a while you could say if it compares to WA2/GEC6a7sg with HD800?
