Alright, so I have a bit of a predicament.
I just purchased a second hand EF1, for $200:
(this is an image I found on the internet, mine is still in transit)
The EF5, however, is close to $500 brand new:
The EF2, on the Head-Direct website, is currently $170. It has a built in USB DAC, and two tubes:
So, here is the confusing part.
In price, the product I just bought is close to the EF2 - But I paid more.
In aesthetics, the product I just bought is closer to the EF5 - But I paid less.
Which product is the EF1 closer to? My concern is that I either just got a really good deal, or that I should have just gone with the EF2.
Note: I am using this for the amp sections ONLY - they will be used as an output stage to my Aune T1. The DAC section of the EF2 is meaningless to me.
