Okay. It is also the darker and warmer ?

 

Yes, 2A3mk2 is thicker / warmer sounding than other current EC amps.

Okay thank you. The MK4 will be the second ?

 

To return to the 445 it seems that it opened up headphone like Abyss, LCD or HE6-560. It is like the Stax SR007 that need plenty of clean power.

I have bad news from Craig. The 4 45 doesn't fit on a BA chassis. He will try on a MKIV chassis style.

Does the 445 have an outboard power supply like the ECBA?  Judging by those transformers, I'm guessing not.

I would guess separate box for power supply.  No way decent PS fits in EC 2A3 chassis

should have separate outboard power supply like ECBA, the first run 445's all have separate power supply. And the second run 445 will use 5842 as driver tubes.

Those are output transformers not PSU transformer.

AHHH...i prefer the look of the BA to this new 4-45 case :-((
Question becomes : is the SQ of the 4-45 really better than the BA to compensate for it's "less élégant" (IMO) look ? (I do not really mind the Speaker output option).

Thanks for your advices.
