 re 2): I've listened to Grado SR-80's on mine, and it sounds okay, but not as controlled as my DT-770's (300 ohm). The gain of the Bravo is a bit much for the lower impedance cans. re 3): I didn't see the post that said 600 ohm cans are too much, but I would be surprised if that didn't work... on the other hand, if you're listening with 600 ohm cans, you probably need to spend more money on your amp/dac than a bravo  re 4): Yes, it drives my 300 ohm Beyer DT-770's just fine.
So this is what happens, when I don't log in for a while... they move the convention Well. So. I guess I can't complain, given my spotty record at showing up to these things. But I must say, it would be nice to see everything (and everyone) all in one room...   I have to say, I have spent more time recommending Head-fi to my friends, than logging in. For a long while. This remains home to me, even if I am absent a lot. I shall do my best to show up...

 Best reference I know of is here: http://www.audiotubes.com/12au7.htmJust a list of equivalent tube numbers without descriptions: 12AU7 / 12AU7AECC82CV49158146189/E82CC5963635066807730ECC802E80CC/6085B749 I have several of these (underlined) and have tried them at least once in the amp (with varying results).Mullards, Telefunkens, and old American black plate tubes sound best to me.The recent remade Russian and Chinese tubes sound noticeably worse, even in this amp.I...

 I gotta take one post for a shout-out: Thank you Tyll for your many informative reviews and interviews. I got to see you in action interviewing someone at CanJam, and I listened to you moderate the Planar headphone presentation (which I think benefited greatly from your moderation). I almost walked up to you and introduced myself, but it would have sounded something like "Hi Tyll, I'm someone you've never heard of, but thanks!" lol.  Anyway, good job bro
Best. Donut. Ever.  
I was one of those who got to hear Bill's mods at CanJam. I can attest to the fact that this does indeed make this headphone less strident and smoother sounding.   (When I walked into the Member area, Bill said "Finally, someone wearing DT770's" lol).   I own the 250 ohm version, so I don't know if that would make a difference or not. Anyhow, the cable on my set is getting a bit worn from movement, so I may combine cable replacement with this mod at some point in the...
