Come to Australia, Xcalibur and bring your KT150 amp when it's ready. :sunglasses:

Nice....what sockets are those for the 841's ?

They are CMC teflon sockets, the poor man's Yamamoto :joy: I think they are pretty nice though, for the price.

I always knew I have the foresight. :wink: Question - is this the Auris Nirvana contender? I.e at least 6 watts into 32 ohms ? How about make it 8? Got to drive those Tannoy Wesminster !

Nope, this amplifier will put out a measly 0.5W! How will it power anything? I am told certain headphones require 15W amplifiers these days to be "driven". Maybe I am overconfident, but I think this amp will sound better than the sneeze glass amp.

I think that's all for today, didn't get super far but it's a start! Filament supply is nearly done, will take it up again this weekend.

For those headphones, I'll use my Sansui au alpha 907mr or Redgum Rgi120enr. I'm actually not keen on a combination speaker/headphone amp. I like to keep those 2 functions separate. I.e. a dedicated integrated amp or separates for stereo and headphone amps strictly for headphones and a dap for iems but I don't use iems apart for my Senns Momentum wireless earbads. :jecklinsmile:

Bet you haven't seen the internals of my previous GOTL. Work of art I'd say. Glenn created so many more after that. This is the Super 9.

If I were to judge on pure aesthetics I’d prefer the cleaner look of the EC but I haven’t heard either one and not sure I would prefer a does it all amp.

It's cleaner because it uses less tubes. On GOTL there are 7 sockets. Though I haven't heard the EC, it would be hard to beat the 6 x 6BX7gt and a nice 6sn7 sound and Glenn's tuning is amazing.
