Hi guys,

did someone made a comparison between the HOT ROD DCB1 and the new B1 with the Korg Triode?

Best,
Oliver

I fully agree with ZenMod:


it is like comparing two bottles of good wine - which one tastes better?


Depends on what you like.



And depends on your listening chain: amps, loudspeakers, preferred music,...



That is difficult if not impossible to be answered.



Cheers
Dirk

@Oliver, I brought the B1 Korg to a friend who had the B1 Mesmerize (not exactly a hot rodded incarnation), we had fuller bass and of course, more gain. But the latter is more soundstage accurate, if there such a term to describe it. Overall, the B1 Korg is fun to build, I will recommend it.

What argues for the B1 NUTUBE-Preamp is in my opinion the versatility
to adjust the 'sound character' with the 10 kOhm potentiometres.
The B1 NUTUBE is adjustable from a tube-like sound to a more analytic sound.


This is how I would describe it. I like this little giant!


But the SALAS DCB1 is also really good!
