Octave - the leftfield choice?

Recommended Posts

I am intrigued by this German brand with a model range centered around high power valve amps using KT 120 and 150 output tubes, in-house wired transformers and interesting add on 'power' supplies.

I am not an owner - yet - but would like to give the chance for anyone out there to share any experience of this brand.  What is their sonic signature and do the KT 120/150 tubes deliver the goods?

Can’t help with any experience, but they interest me too.

I am looking for a high power valve amp to really grip my Snells which are 86db sensitivity and 4 ohm load (dipping to 3 ohm). Could potentially do it by throwing enough 300b’s into the output stage (at least 8) but that gets very expensive, not least on valve running costs, hence the KT120/150 interest.

In addition to Octave, anything else you have considered?
