Great news boyz and girlz.
I was able to get Todd the Vinyl Junkie to jump me ahead of one person in line in front of me (thank you, nice person, whoever you are
) in the TTVJ Luxman P-1
loaner program. It is being shipped on Monday by Agile_One from Florida and I will have it in plenty of time for the meet.
This is one killer Class-A headphone amp (for those of you who are unfamiliar with it). It has single ended and balanced inputs and 3 (yes, three
) single ended outputs.
This is one of the best sounding headphone amps ever made.
You can read about the specs on Todd's page here:Luxman P-1 [P-1] - $2,400.00 : TTVJ, Todd The Vinyl Junkie
I'm also bringing these Sony PVR-F1's
. The are an unusual design that is similar to the K-1000 approach (wife not included...well she is coming, but not included). They have a sub "ring that sit in your ear which distances the driver globe about an inch from your ear to give you a "speaker-like" sound. Cool stuff. The are very low impedance and have an in-line booster (throw that out right awaY) so they work well, right out of a portable component jack (1/8" w/ a 1/4" adapter)
