First Watt

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen a thread dedicated to First Watt amplifiers so thought I would start one here.  For those of you that own or have owned First Watt amps, please indicate the model and share you impressions here.  Thanks!

First Watt J2. Sold my VRDs and George Wright 2A3 mono blocks. That good.

I've owned the Wright 2A3 Monos (still regret selling them), so I consider that to be very high praise!

Currently the F3 and J2,  both using JFET power transistors. Even producing less power,  15 vs 25 watts, and having less gain I’m leaning to the F3. It’s a damn special amp and like Rich said, very much a single ended signature but  more so than the J2 to my ears. A short period with the M2 but for me it was nothing special.

I have been fortunate to find another of the scarce F3’s so the F3 vs J2 comparison has come to an end. The J2 was sold to a forum member and the two F3 are being run as monoblocks. Very satisfied with the outcome and being able to prove my ambition to 

run monoblock F3’s with special thanks to Nelson Pass and Forum buddy MikeB.
