yeah mostly Glenn OTL now (re-listening as I write up as well to make sure its right), and some where on WA22, and i noted some differences, also on WA6-SE differences, but I can hear them which is good and I have noted it in the review for those tubes as well....

 

did like 8 hours of straight listening today.

Yes, more 'Glenn amp' listening! Lucky for me, I was able to hold on to my HD650. Will make sure the two date some time this week. :normal_smile :

Yes, Glenn highly recommended the pairing for my 2359glenn OTL Silver Hawk. And they eventually appeared inside my listening room... a whole lotta magic! :D 

 

 

 

 

Did you tried HD800 with Glenn's OTL?

Curious to hear more of your experience rolling rectifier tubes compared to driver or output tubes as in which have most impact to roll and other differences...

:popcorn:

Everyone here seems to be knowledgeable about tube vendors so I figured I'd ask here.  

 

Does anyone know of a decent source for purchasing a pair of EML 300B mesh plates?

Not yet. Glenn owns the HD800 and suggests it is a more refined pairing than the HD650. Maybe I'll hit the streets for a mini-mini meet with an HD800 owner.

 

Also, tell me about your K-Mok shopping spree... what did you get?

Glenn, would the 5U8C work in the 300b amp?

No the 5 volt winding is only 3 amps the fact that I couldn't use the 3DG4 due to it's PIV voltage is to low

for the B+ in a 300B amp. So I had transformers wound for 5volt 3amp there was no reason for

the extra cost to make the 5 volt be 5amp.

In the OTL the B+ is lower and I have the 5 volt taped at 3.3 volts and the winding is 5amps because the

3DG4 draws 4amps. And I have leeway to use the 5U8C.

Glenn just wondering if you have built solid state before? Someone said something about a hybrid amp before.

We don't want Glenn wasting his time on SS amps.
