Celebration Giveaway 16: BottleHead – Crack

We continue our $50k gear giveaway with my favourite DIY amp, the BottleHEad Crack OTL Tube amp. Just keep reading and enter the giveaway!

 

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.

Number 16

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!!

About Bottlehead

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.

In order to enter the competition you need to do the following steps:
  • Fill out the form on the page linked below. Use a real email address as this is the address we will use to contact the winner
  • Leave a – preferable funny – comment on this post you’re reading here!

And while you’re at it like both the Bottlehead and Headfonia Facebook pages HERE and HERE, if you haven’t already.

The winner will be chosen at random out of those that completed all 2 steps!

After signing up you’ll get a personal link to share. For each new participant that enters via your personal link on Twitter, Google+ or Facebook, etc. you get an extra chance to win!  Make sure you share/use the referrer link! By entering the giveaway you agree to the rules shown under the “ENTER” button

Participants will be contacted by email after subscribing, so by participating all entrants also accept us to email them. Do check your spam folder, but if you didn’t get an email you’re still entered. (Gmail addresses receive it slow/late! Don’t request us to check your entry)

The winner of the BottleHead Crack will be announced next Mondays as usual. That means you have till Sunday evening to enter the Crack amp giveaway!

Thank you Bottlehead for doing this with us! Good luck to everyone!

    My parents would be happy hearing that I’m a bottlehead, not a methhead. Although this hobby is probably more expensive than an addiction to hard drugs

  • December 31, 2018

    ALDY HAEKAL PINASTI

    I’m not gonna make a joke about “crack”.

    But I’m curious, did they named the amp based on the fact it would “crack” occasionally?

    I mean, look at those fragile tubes.,

    Seeing as the Crack is an OTL, I think my best bet would be to use it with the 250Ohm DT990 Pros I have. My others may have too little impedance to work well. Hmmm…
