I have never heard any OTL but my own, but here are some sheer facts: I've never heard anyone say they prefer more expensive OTLs to Transcendent Sound amps, they extremely reliable, (unlike some OTLs) and produce far less waste heat.
Looks great. Now if you can make some amps that have about 4 times the power I would give them a try on my Sound Lab A3s.
I owned a pair of Transcendents, the T8 monoblocks, rated at 80 wpc, with the LN (low noise) upgrade. Very nice sounding amps, but to make a long story short, they are gone but my Berning's remain. I have two running as monoblocks, with all the Allan Bhagan mods, so I guess in some ways it's not a fair comparison to a stock Transcendent, but I certainly prefer them by a large margin.
They are great at the price point. I owned one as you may recall several years back when you were inquiring. Other than a bit less power than I needed they were all I could ask for.....until I heard the Berning ZH270 and then later the Joule-Electra. Oh how bliss can change so fast to a new burning desire.
Tempteth me not with thy apple! The lord sayeth: Eatest thou not from the tree of more expensive amps, lest thou be doomed forever to seek greater and greater hi-fi by the sweat of thy brow, and thy woman to suffer the pains of biguglyspeakeritis!
Ahhh so true Dr, so true. Despair not for thou has in thy possession an amplifier of superb pedigree and sonic desire, Thou hast done well now continue to spread the word as will I, my promise to those in quest of musical truths.
btw, Bluebull I forgot to let you know that this one is indeed another gem at considerably less cost. The T8 LN will give you 25 watts of bliss if you can live with 25 watts, it'll work in a small room.
"Shaky spear" would have been proud !Wrote a nice story called "OTL o" ! Thanks I shall investigate the matter(Excuse my plain English but it's not my first language)

Sorry... That message number is not valid.
OK, now you will have heard someone say it: I prefer my Atma-sphere amps to Transcendent amps, although I recognize that the Transcendent products are also excellent and a great bargain.
It would be a little too much of a miracle if it were not so (the price difference). I have never heard a negative comment about the sound of AS amps ..
It sounds to good to be true with a pair of 6080 putting out 15W. How much feedback they use and is it class A?
Have you heard the SAP OTL? It claims it is the only SE, zero feedback, class A OTL in the world.
I'll look at your website.
We shall meet at Twickenham next Saturday.Hope Johnny not playing .
I really dont mind to pay less !!!Less is good !
