    Just to reaffirm this, when I owned the amp, it would turn on regardless of tube, with or without an adapter, set to the wrong voltage. That's how I burned several nice tubes and caused damage to one of my headphones.

    HD 800 S Anniversary Edition

    Guess I'll be raining in on the parade but a reveal for a....color change? There was a bit of a hype train going that Sennheiser was making an announcement. I could of understood a reveal for price drop on the HD800s. I could of understood a reveal for a price drop and possibly some hint of...

    ZMF Verite Open

    This little amp (SW51+) punches way above its price range and is a great pairing with the Verite. I have two amps worth more than $2000 and it keeps up with them except for that extra bit of sound stage depth, width, and resolution.

    The Reference 6SN7 Thread

    You’re talking about top tier tubes. Mullards are nice and warm. Really fantastic for its smokey, smooth mids, with great bass and are holographic. They are some of my favorites. Sylvania 6SN7Ws have more treble extension, with punchy bass, while behaving more neutral. Holographic as...

    I wouldn't consider it flaws but trade-offs. The Teton works really well with one output tube for both sides. It's for high impedance headphones and it has one of the clearest sound, widest sound stage, tallest images, with some of the best separation, and resolve. The Teton is a very forward...

    There isn't much of a change when it comes to swapping driver tubes. The CIFTE 6AT6 sound like the Mullard 6AT6 which sound like the RCA 6AT6. If there's a difference I personally can't hear it. What you get is an amp that has great transients, wide sound stage, added depth (instruments don't...

    The Glenn amp was sold prior to selling the Oblivion amp. I've been going through a long gear cycling phase. Trying out different amp topologies, synergies with equipment, and headphones. Trying to find that almost perfect mix of qualities you look for in sound which is different for every...

    Speaking of impedance switch, would it ever be possible to have something along the lines of 120/300 out? Or is what being offered the only options available because of the topology?

    Sell him an amp and have him really fall in love. Sooner or latter you can become the mayor and call the town GLENNOTLVILLE :D

    The Blackwoods usually come with the Eikon pads on top of the Auteur pads. Both lambskin.

    l really enjoy the Eikon perforated pads which bumps the mids forward and gives it a warmer/dense sound signature. Reminds me of the HD650 just with a bit more treble. The Auteur pads make them more neutral. If you can grab a pair of Blackwoods I think you’d enjoy it more than the Teaks. I...
