Bottlehead Amplifier Discussion / Comparison Thread: Crack, SEX & Mainline - Page 2
Gear mentioned in this thread:
FWIW I rewrote some recommendations regarding the choice of amp for our soon-to-be-overhauled web site. It was old enough that it discussed our retired Smack kit, so it now includes Mainline instead. I won't post it here because that could easily be construed as advertising. But It should be up on the new site in the next month or two.
You don't need to advertise, Doc. We're already doing it for you!
With all the attention that's come to this thread so quickly (thanks everyone!) I thought I'd make sure to really do this properly. I've updated the first post with full details of my approach to the reviews. If anyone has any special requests (i.e. particular music styles, etc.) I will be happy to accommodate as best I can. Please PM me with special requests.
I'll post a comment in the main thread each time I add to the reserved review slots so it'll flag on your subscriptions.

Posted a link to this thread over at the Bottlhead forums (in the "Crack" section). I think it will be of interest to many. Having read some of Lachlan's other reviews, the methodology to be used and format, it should be a very valuable reference.

Congrats on a great choice. You'll find the Bottlehead forum really helpful with build questions in the Crack thread and visual inspiration in the Gallery thread.

Thanks folks! I really enjoyed doing this one again (I reviewed it on my blog ages ago). Looking forward to the SEX tonight before taking a break until I get the C4S and then the Mainline.
+1 The formatting is perfect, and laid out in logical chunks that flow in order.
Loquah that is a smashing write up. I also have the Beyer T1 and HD650 which I am really enjoying and was very interested to read your comments about the T1 and Crack's synergies in the treble area being highly enjoyable and smooth. That is just what I have been hoping for and one of the main drivers behind my recent crack purchase.
