Just stuck the new cap in mine, now just waiting on more tubes to play with.

So Sachu, let us know how it sounds being driven by a dac that costs 10X the amp price!

well I sold my last CTH to fund my Canjam trip ..but not to worry..Looks like I will be building 3 more at least.

by the way, I plonked the CTH with a Siemens E82CC on the Audeze table on Sunday...Folks loved the combo.

so is the Audeze the cats whiskers or what?

Congrats on the raffle too, lucky git!

I saw the CTH's in the pictures, but there was so much gee-gaw gear there, I don't know if our little amp got that much listening time...

Very good match. Been a long time since I liked a Grado. The only other grado I liked wwas a pair of RS-1s.

hehe..I am sorry dude..It is very hard to give detailed impressions when I was too darn tired, mind ****ed by all the auditions and running around. All I can say is I would have dropped the 500$ for them if not for the 2 orthos. I plan on buying them both, which sounded quite brilliant with the CTH as well. For most of the second day my CTH was hooked up to the Audeze and was well received.
post #1467 of 2213
my experience with orthos hasnt been too positive. I have yh-1 that I been trying to mod but the sound seems to go too light sounding to hollow sounding. Havent been able to find a balance yet.

You will need to spend months with the Ortho Crew & Thread to perfect the Mods

You got RS-1s, correct? I love 'em with the CTH (Um, and I didn't like Grados befor ethe RS-1).

So until you get a chance to hear the HF-2's - enjoy!
post #1469 of 2213
I was about to get an used rs1 then this dam hf2 appeared. Oh I did skim through that monster of a thread looking at pictures of mods and used that one site which allows searches. I forgot I even had the yh1 and just opened it up for some more tweaking.

Would anyone in/near Australia be interested in a completed CTH amplifier? I made five, and one person pulled out of paying for one.. So I have a spare fully made and tested, with the C3H modification and perforated top (thanks wiatrob!) and the choice between a few different tubes I have.

All the rest are working and sounding great!
