I've had the Pinnacle for almost 2 years now and would never, ever let it go. It seems to bring out the best in whatever headphones I plug into it. 

I have no buyers remorse at all. (Get a good 6NS7 though; the Pinnacle is very sensitive to this tube. Pick up a nice Psvane one right away; that's what I use after several experiments.)

It's really mesmerizing with TH900s, LCD3s, and W3000ANVs especially.

I've got some nice Mullards, TS BGRPs & one Marconi B65 cool.gif
Any recommendations on the output tubes..

That's it. End of discussion. Am buying the Pinnacle.

 

Just in case anyone is actually wondering, I'm not getting a commission on this sale.

Not many choices. Just the Sophia and KR. Easy enough.

Indeed, as Radio Head has mentioned, anyone should be able to voice their opinion (within reason), which is what makes this forum a great place for fans and audiophiles alike to meet and talk about what we're all passionate about - the music. Thanks to Radio Head, Purrin, Todd, DannyB and Maxvla for sharing.

Not very soon.
I plan on holding onto the ECBA in order to compare it with the Pinnacle. biggrin.gif

Congrats Shehzad!

 

Wise choice to keep the BA, at least for a while... You don't want to have it flying towards another continent while pondering the question "Wait a minute, how did the BA sound now again...?"

Hey Maxvla, Next time we are in the same place, I would like to have dinner or lunch with you on me as a gesture of my sincere apology. And of course if it is at RMAF, a nice cold beer on us to! Todd

Hmm oh I see how this is works.  Um ya Todd?  Yo momma :P /runsandhides  Free lunch?

 

In other news, still loving my Peak/Volcano especially with the Sylvania 6SN7W.

I own the Pinnacle.  I run it with a pair of LCD2.  One of the earlier versions w/ foam headband.

 

I have owned and extensively heard the Ear HP4 and a B22 I purchased from a fellow Headfier (n_maher).  

 

All 3 amps are fantastic.  

 

One of them is much more expensive than the others.  Even when combined.  The Pinnacle.

 

Guess what.  I have zero buyers remorse with the Pinnacle.  None.

If I had another $10k in discretionary money and wanted to get an office rig, I'd get another Pinnacle.  Its that good.

I'm using the stock tubes as well, I haven't gotten around to tube rolling yet.  Too much music to listen to.

 

I am not looking for some cheap approximation of great music, I am looking for great music.  This gets me there.

 

Coming home from work and putting on some music is the highlight of my day, and now that I have the Pinnacle its better than it has ever been.

 

For whatever its worth.
