I think mine is V2, shipped in 2020.
Are v4’s expensive because of audio note components?
Yeah that's the main reason. I'm not sure if Donald had done any other tweaks between v3 and 4. V4 actually takes a slightly different chassis to accept the new transformers.
Hence why you can't upgrade a v3 to a v4.
How is this misinformation @JackDaniels

Eddie Current Balancing Act, 2600€, France
Anyone in the EU looking for an SW51+ w/Extra Tubes for 430.00 €
390€+shipping with Paypal f&f if someone here wants it. I never bothered to get my contributor status updated even though I've donated couple of times. If I had access I would have listed it here first because I would not even have the amp without sbaf.
Is the Balancing Act suitable to drive inefficient planars? Compared to studio B maybe?
Thank you! I think I'm off the small amp train for now given that my main is the Tyr > RAAL and my secondary system at work is the ZDS > JAR600.
I think the only piece of gear I'm still really curious about is the Gold Bar these days.
In my experience, nope. I tried planars when I had a BA, and myself and others who also tried were not impressed.
Nice looking pair of LCD-4, at a good price, with warranty for a while yet. https://www.head-fi.org/classifieds/lcd-4.45264/
I'm checking out rhythmdevils' modded LCD-4 at the moment and, well, they're glorious, probably the best headphones I've heard (not that I've heard everything, far from it). I'll post full impressions in RD's modded headphones thread soon.
@JeremiahS, my 307a Balancing Act drives planars really well. It does a good job with my HE-500. Max volume output averages 106 db and peaks around 115 with a mic at ear distance.
I also paid $2250 shipped for my BA with nine tubes - one 6SN7 and four pairs of 307a.
Which tube configuration do you test with?
Bifrost Multibit 1 on r/avexchange for $250 (price drop in comments), great for modding!
Enleum AMP-23R w/ feet (first model, upgraded firmware): $3800
Bryston BDA-1 and BHA-1 for $1900 CAD which is a pretty good price for the combo.
I've had both components in the past and really liked them.
Glenn OTL for sale for 1650.00. Super rare these days.
Another ZMF Verite Closed in Leopardwood for a good price ($1675). It's B-stock, but it looks nice.
