A mini Studio without tubes? GSX MK2 ‘done right’? Both sound pretty amazing to me...
It would be. Craig's got his hands full with shiity boards to fix for the BW at the moment, and I think also with some of our Aficionado orders. Pondering if I should add my name to the list.
I was a little disappointed when I was told it was dead a few months ago, however it did lead me to immediately impulse buy a BW, which turned out to be a fantastic decision.
Balls deep it is!
Some quotes from people who have heard this mythical beast...
Had forgotten all the discussion on these amps. BW definitely worked out for the HD800. Paradox too. Copperhead would have been interesting to hear. Hey Ravi, did I hear it someplace?
Where is the option to send Marvey on an apprenticeship, Kill Bill style, until he can take over the design work entirely.
DIY PACKAGE ?
I say we clone Craig or at least involve some borg like assimilation to preserve the knowledge.
Ghost writer to help Craig right a book. "How I Got That Sound". Print only two copies.
Anyone know if Craig ever considered going full on solid state power amp instead of the lower powered headphone solid state amps?
I'd lo love to see what he would due with large 1,000+ VA toroidal transformers & 20,000+ uF caps.
The ‘retire’ vote is gaining ground...
I know this was a long shot but, at least for me, Copperhead would satisfy a yet unfulfilled need - a no compromise, highly resolving TOTL solid state.
BW is a remarkable amplifier but the indulgence goes to 11. Ragnarok is technically proficient but, from memory, borders on becoming clinical in its presentation, especially when using a neutral-ish DAC.
What other options are there in the solid state arena for an amplifier with resolution and clarity along with just a touch of the EC ‘holographic’ house sound?
The Massdrop X Eddie Current ZDT Jr is a good sign. I am hoping for a Massdrop X Eddie Current Copperhead.
I applaud your optimism, but given what has been said about Craig’s current workload I just don’t see that happening. ZDT Jr is an established Laconic product endorsed by Craig and bestowed with his knob. Last I heard, CH was still at prototype stage.
