Temporary Amp for Grados.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Well, that said it. I would like to have an amp with RCA inputs and a wall wort. Has anyone seen a cMoy built like that? If that is a possibility then how would you have it configured (opamp and such)? I want to keep this in the sub-$100 range. The reason I don't want to shell out any real dough right now is because I would like to save up for a more expensive amp in the near future.


*edit* AWWW CARP! I posted this in the wrong forum. Mods feel free to move me!

PIMETA? That's the only thing that I can think of for that price... but then you'd either have to build it yourself or have someone build it for you if you can't find one that meets your requirements in the FS forum...

PA2V2 should sound good with Grados and is VERY cheap. Perfect temporal amplifier for Grados while saving for higher end SS or Tube stuff.

I have know idea if it has a possibility for wall power though...

Just rechecked. It does have walwart, but no RCA. It uses minijack connection. But thats no problem, every electronic shop carries RCA-Miniplug cables that are half-cheap. Or if you want to use better quality cables, they also carry RCA-Miniplug Adapters with goldenplated plugs, so...

I have a PAV2V2 and use it with my Grado SR-60. This combo sounds great. Not sure how the PAV2V2 would sound with others Grados, but they should be fine ...

A Cmoy with an NJM4556 opamp or an A47 would do the job. Both could be built for really cheap, less than $40.

3x PA2V2. Not even because of the price, but it is really good with Grados.
I've had a PA2V2 and SR325i as a desktop/PC setup for quite some time. It is really a surprisingly good combo.

I might go this route. Kramer also said that a Pimeta may be good.
