A bit of both, but I'll suspect the tube eats up more battery than the rest of the circuit because vacuum tube is not know of efficiency. The battery is actually pretty big compared to most portable amps.

Have you tried the BL-2 with the Fischer FA-002w? I have found this to be an excellent combination (I'm using the original, low-impedance ones with 5-step beech cups).

Do you know if the APE-02 will ever be available separately?

Between the VentureCraft GoDAP TT and  GoVibe PortaTube, which is better in separation, clarity, sound stage, detail?
