What does TOTL mean to you? The best 1 can make? or the best for a price?
The best one can make, irrespective of price. Just gauging where the roof is. I'll take suggestions for value too though!
Tbh this is kind of tough. Most exceptionally good tube amps are either transformer coupled (a good thing IMHO) or run pentodes in ultralinear mode (which is an entirely different sound)
Glenn OTL, have fun waiting
Any reason to stick to OTL?
None TOTL but I deeply enjoyed Feliks Euphoria, Glenn OTL, and Apex Teton and for respective reasons. But never paired them with Yggdrasil A1 or GS.
To my liking, Teton was particularly so impressive that I really wanted to steal it from the owner. lol
Teton is basically top of the list. I have the Euforia loaner and it's too laidback, I want a lively OTL. Glenn is apparently unobtanium. My other thought was ZDS.
And the ZDS isn't unobtanium....?
All of them are unobtanium except Euforia, no?
Essentially. You got to get lucky.
Heard Schiit is currently preparing something big with tubes. I don't think it transformer-coupled. So, maybe worth waiting if you're gonna upgrade or change rigs.
Jason said something about that, yeah. Folkvangr? Not in a rush here. Just got the GS, I'm just setting new ambitions. lol
OTL and TOTLOTL!
'Totlotl' is all one needs for name.
While not OTL, the Amps and Sound Nautilus is one hell of an amp. I own the Kenzie Encore and it pairs well with ZMF headphones and a Bifrost II.
