Lives for gear

I recently bought the Thermionic Culture Phoenix for exactley this reason.
I have an STC8 since 8 years now and it was my all time favourite for glue , but it is boring compared to the Phoenix. The Phoenix adds a sonic flavour to the sound that is very exciting, the STC is very clean.
I also tested a Gyratec GX 10, which was also very good, sounds more retro, it had softer and silkier highs and a bigger bass. Very warm and fat sound.
But I liked the tightness of the Phoenix better.
The API 2500 isn't such a good "gluer" but it's a very good punchmaker.
