The story of Glenn’s OTL headphone amplifier started as that of a relentless endeavor to make the ALO recabled Beyer T1s sound as good as it was possible, and ended up being that of finding the center piece of my system that will probably outlast many other major components.

When nenno from Reference Tweaks first contacted me about his Miracle Wraps, I was very intrigued to say the least. I did not totally understand how such a “tweak” could have an impact on the sound, but since different cables with different shielding schemes have sounded different in the past, I agreed to do...Read Full Post »
