        Stratus & a Glenn? That could definitely be endgame, unobtainium for some. Sit back & enjoy!!

        How does the Glenn compare to other OTL tube amps for you?

        I can really only compare to the BHC (non-SB), my only other OTL. Relative to that, it's crystal clear across the spectrum, and slams much harder. The BHC reminds me more of the Kenzie - a romantic, analog, slightly smoothed-over sound while the Glenn has sharper transients, more dynamic, lots of slam. Still need to do some tube-rolling on the Glenn to hone it in.

      Measurements don't measure how it sounds

        I'd be cautious of saying measurements DON'T matter. If you're familiar with how you hear certain headphones and see measurements on different setups, it's possible to use them to get some information, and the use of new things like Marv's burst response measurements are quite interesting

        That being said, measurements obviously do not tell the whole story. There's no way to measure timbre for example. Or stage. This is why it's important to use measurements correctly as it's explained in the top of the page; a HEALTHY way to understand measurements. They shouldn't be an end-all-be-all thing.

        Well, they certainly tell you how it *doesn't* sound.
