Last week’s Winner
The VE5 and Lionheart cable of course was very popular but we can only make one person’s Christmas extra nice, and that is: Matthias Stuer from Belgium!!! Congratulations. You’ll be contacted very soon, please get in touch.
As promised and explained earlier, we’ll be doing a year long of weekly giveaways and last September was the start of our 52-week celebration. For this sixteenth unit of the biggest audio giveaway the world has ever seen, we’re giving away the BottleHead Crack 1.1 kit,worth around $299USD! The Crack can become yours and all you have to do is… sign up and leave a comment saying what headphones you’ll be using it with.
But first, let’s look at Bottlehead and the Crack 1.1!!
BottleHead is a US based company specialize in building kits for you to assemble yourself at home. Bottlehead has been making the highest quality tube audio kits since 1995 and they’re still going strong.
Nowadays Bottlehead offers many different kits for loudspeakers, amplifiers, headphone amps, preamps, phono preamps, etc etc. You can check out all of their products here: https://bottlehead.com/bottlehead-products/
The kits have different difficulty levels and the Crack 1.1 we’re giving away this week is one of the easiest kits to assemble yourself, and basically anyone can do it.
The Crack 1.1
You can find the Crack Product Page here: https://bottlehead.com/product/crack-otl-headphone-amplifier-kit/
But we of course reviewed it:
From the review: “In conclusion: if you are DIY’er looking for an OTL amp to power your high impedance headphones and prefer sound quality over looks (or just like the looks of the Crack like me), don’t look any further. The under $300 Crack is all you need and it will get you addicted for life.”
In fact I don’t think you can find an amp with a better technicality than the Crack for less than $500. If you build one yourself, that means only $299, the Crack is a steal for that price. You’re practically robbing Bottlehead for the sound that you get.
