    I need an Empy to demo. Somebody send me one! :wink:

    Just more analytical compared to the Verite. Not as analytical as my HEK SE.

    I’m hearing a bit of hardness n the upper kids, lower treble on the Empy that I don’t hear on the Vérité. Soundstage is similar with both on the WA5, maybe just a tad more depth on the Empy, but so close it’s hard to tell. One difference I noted was that once the Empy was in the House I found that I was listening almost all rock, not my usual mix of classical, jazz and rock.

    Thanks. That's a no go for me. I can either pick one up used here in that time or will find another type of amp I will like.

    I think you might have to go with the latter option there friend. I’ve been searching for a Glenn OTL since the beginning of the year and in that time I’ve only seen two or three pop up- all of them with pretty steep markups too might I add.
    Last month I just bit the bullet and asked to be put on the wait list, but I also have an atom, MCTH and Bottlehead Mainline to tide me over.

    Yea, definitely a lot of mixed opinions out there. I think at the full-retail price, you'll be left wanting more. I got them used for less than half the price. I find it rather neutral, but with a slightly warmer sound - slight bass increase, a little smoother treble response, and gentler attack, but that doesn't mean it takes away from the speed of the Verite, which I find is a good pairing with these. The WA7 is really awful for IEMs. The 3.5mm output is just useless and utter garbage. Everything I put through it sounds muddy and overly bassy.

    I also admit, 90% of the reason I bought it was because of the sleek modern looks, and 10% for wanting tubes.

    Right on. Yea they're cool looking but I've heard sound doesn't meet expectations on most occasions. Thanks for sharing your opinion.

    The amount of options that one gets on an amp from Glenn will make the prices vary greatly on the OTL amp.
    You can get the basic for $750 or you can start adding stuff and get well above twice that price.....so that is probably the differences in the varying prices you have seen.

    Not to mention that many times tubes are included in the sale,which can dramatically increase an asking price.
