Ahh, these are the Marconi's I found last year. I decided to give the Tens a rest and put these back in once again as I had not teamed them up with the Berlin made Telefunkens. It's a great sound combination giving just the right amount of warmth and bottom end and top end clarity and detail.
I think the Telefunkens now are my go to DF91 tube, they are sublime. I might pop the Mullards in the DL92 section again just to give that last ounce of bass weight but thats after listening to the glove through this amp.

I have eight hours on the glove now and have to say if you have the first gen 100/120 this is a must I feel. I managed to get some decent time on the 240 recently and loved it but still could not justify the extra expense of it. The 120/glove combo gives me all the added micro detail and soundstage the 240 has over the 120 but retains the 120's warmth and analog feel that for my ears the 240 lacks.

I also love the simplicity of it, no wifi, no android system, no bells and whistles I would never use (wifi streaming) just a music player and a fine one at that!

Glove audio A1/AK120 + TU-05= sonic heaven! every thing that makes the glove/120 combination a truly great one is amplified (pun intended!) by adding in the '05

Truly the best portable listening experience in all the years of listening to portable audio ( and that stretches back almost 35 years to my very first Walkman!).

Wow that is a very impressive assessment iammedium.

Have you compared the 901 + 05 to this combo?

My preference of sound signature is more toward analytical with just a touch of warmth.

As I am looking to buy a 901 soon this would be a very helpful insight.

Many thanks for sharing your findings on the Glove which until now for me was unheard of.

Enjoy the fruit of 35 years of sonic exploration :)

I agree with Ian this sound amazingly good. Max volume at glove a1.
