Well I can safely say, even with the volume up at "30" on the dial, there's absolutely ZERO hiss, buzz, hum, etc, etc present. Something else I can safely say, the headphone out on the G-7000 has some serious balls!   I have all tone controls bypassed and am getting loads of tight, deep bass, open, natural midrange, and extended, smooth and detailed treble. The sound stage is definitely wider and deeper than either my FiiO E11 or modded tube amp. It was an extremely...
Does anyone on here have any experience with the Sansui G-7000 as a headphone amp?   I just stumbled across this thread this morning and just skimmed through a few pages, but never got around to trying my Mad Dogs on the G-7000. Been running around like my head chopped off today.   Anyway, I have a mint beauty that I would love to try. If anything, if it performs really good, I might just make it the main amp for my rig.   Any thoughts?   And a...
  I'm not trying to hijack the thread, so I'll send you a PM in a few minutes.
I think it would be neat to power my Mad Dogs with a power amp, and I have the perfect amp for the job, a Monarchy Audio SM-70 Pro. It's Class A and 25 watts. However, the Mad Dogs are fairly efficient and using any type of "speaker" amp is probably way too much overkill. On that note, this is an extremely nice sounding amp, being just slightly on the warm side of neutral, plenty of bass depth, detail and impact, and a wide sound stage. It's also bridgeable. All I'd need...
I second the Mad Dogs. I have a pair and they are excellent with the type of music you listen to. I know, I listen to some of the same stuff and they perform flawlessly.
I've been running my MD's off of my modded tube amp for the past few days now and holy cow do these things sound excellent! And the only way I can connect the iPad to the amp is via the iPad's headphone output. Even though, the background is dead silent, bass is even deeper and more controlled, the midrange and vocals are scarie real sounding, the treble is silky smooth and extended, sound stage is huge (considering the closed design), and these cans are just an absolute...
As far as the E12 having enough output for ortho cans, I don't think anyone needs to worry. I've been powering my Mad Dogs with the E11 for almost a week now, and the most I have ever turned up the volume is about 5.5. Maybe up to 7 when I'm feeling frisky, and that's loud as heck! But I only do that for very short periods, and very seldom. BTW, this is also playing a lot of Dubstep through them as I have found an interest in this music genre lately, thanks to a fellow...
I say check out the Mr Speakers Mad Dogs. They're easy to drive, are closed, and sound great for classical. In fact, I'm listening to some chamber music right now and they sound excellent. The acoustics of the venue come through crystal clear.
It's not quite bizarre. I'm not the only one who's complained about Grado's not being comfortable. You have the 60's which are light compared to say the 325's I had, so maybe they aren't all that bad. But when you have those heavy 325's sitting ON you ears, they start to hurt within 15 minutes or so.Plus, the shrilly treble and thin, way too forward midrange just makes them unlistenable and very fatiguing in a short period of time.
To me, Grado's are very painful, both in sound and comfort, or the lack thereof. I had the sr80's and sr325is', and sold both just about as fast as I bought them. Even with the 1000 pads, they still were uncomfortable and painful to listen to. Very fatiguing more ways than one.Yeah, the M50's are another good one to look at from what I've read.Maybe look into some of those "big bass" series from Sony as well.
