Single Ended Bliss
"Simply silly brilliant." -Srajan Ebaen, 6Moons.com
Proud Recipient of the 6 Moons "Realsization" Award
"What do I like about the GLOW Amp One? Pretty much everything. Quite simply I have never heard my recordings sound more real... on old familiar vinyl I experienced a kind of presence that was downright spooky. The GLOW Amp One is a Hi Fi epiphany."
-Dr. Jeff Rabin, EnjoytheMusic.com
"Smart, small and eye-catching design with a sweet, open sound and plenty of detail...
...a fine effort from GLOW Audio"
"The Amp One from GLOW Audio is an amazing feat. I've never seen point to point wiring at this price.
The amp is a solidly constructed piece of equipment weighing in at around 20 lbs. And oh yes, the sound is gorgeous.
The single-ended design eliminates the crossover distortion that hampers many tube amplifiers at this price range.
The amp put out a pleasing and rich sound on Paradigm Mini Monitors and Polk Lsi9 bookshelf speakers.
With Sennheiser HD600 and AKG 702 headphones ... the Amp One is also the best tube headphone amplifier I've heard."
-Derek Brooks, The Audiophile Journal
