Eddie current selling off and shutting down. I think they are selling off everything. Check it out, you serious DIY guys.
Rip, great amps for sure. I wonder if he will come back under a new name (like he did with moth audio lol)
aww I wanted one
Act now then lol
Well then, this bums me out, wanted to buy a Studio in the future (real late future, once I graduated and got a masters/job to afford one), thought that it would be cool to compare what I’m doing now with my amp to a Studio when I get older and look back, maybe improve my amp in the future and build something even more powerful/refined.
I mean I’ve seen a Studio internally, but never heard one before, like idk, it’s like someone who likes fast cars seeing how a Ferrari is built but never driving one I guess? Like you can guess from what you’re seeing, but you might never know for sure.
So I see a bunch of Eddie Current gear come up for sale on headfi and US Audio. Is this stuff near TOTL is it more midfi? I know there is a bit of a cult following so it can be difficult to separate truth from reality…
It seems like the Balancing Act @ $3k price point is sort of the common “end game” product that most people suggest.
The Studio, and the Balancing Act are big boy endgame DHT amps.
The Studio Jr would be endgame for most people.
The Afficianado/Zana Deux were their play at a lower price point, but still excellent.
I guess the short version is it depends what price point your endgame is at.
For $5K+ the Studio was considered a value.
But there are amps out there costing 3 or 4x that, that are probably better.
Website says they’re moving, picking up orders again in January, no? Am I missing something?
That’s basically for their last hurrah, the studio b, which is from studio jr parts but modeled sound wise after the balancing act from what I know, but once those are gone they are done iirc
Balancing act listed for 2200 in case someone was looking for one… This is a good price they rarely come up for sale but typically are at the $3k price point but this one doesn’t come with many of the tubes those listings typically have.
