I see they don't make the opera anymore ?

...So does adding an adapter literally change the output impedance of the source to whatever the adapter is ?

If So, as you said, it sounds easier to buy a nice 0 ohm output amp and then buy a real high quality adapter for 120 ohm.. any disadvantage to that tactic ?

Thanks for your help.

ps: this is what I would want, correct..? .. APureSound - Where The Music Is Always Pure - APS Audio LLC.
The Cantate can be had for 470.

Yeah I saw that , looks pretty sweet . I'm a bit iffy about ordering stuff from Europe though ..

Anyway I'm off down to the local second hand goods store see if there are any decent vintage amps, that way I can get a feel for how these sound amped for cheap .
I heard some vintage amps can be pretty good and even rival lower end amps that are newer !

This looks like a DT48a with silver cups, but is labeled as the 48e 200ohm.

Beyerdynamic DT 48 E-200 Closed Dynamic Headphones

I got some awesome news. My 48e 25 ohm came today with a extra set of pads & extra cable to rewire my headphone..BUT.. The seller also sent me the DT48 brochure. This list all the PARTS & PRICES..This is from 91, so the prices have probably changed. I don't have a digital camera.. But I can make copies, & send them to a head fier that came post them.

I found this interested:

The ultimate in moving coil headphone technique

The most perfect headphone for the audiophile, who demands an absolutely undisturbed, clear & natural reproduction over the entire audio range

The first model was shown in 1937, and the stereo version in 1957. Since then it has not ceased to EVOLVE to keep its place as the foremost headphone for all professionals

The quality of sound produced by these headphones sets the reference by which others are judged

Also would anyone be willing (if they don't already exist) to take picture of it inside and out with a ruler next to it? How is the driver mounted, what if any stuffing is used, what is the interior space like, etc, etc?

Working on a project for the summer. All I'll say for now is like a tank.
I can give you the number to all replacement parts.. Pricing probably won't be accurate since it's from 91.. The brochure. In 91 the 5/8/25/200 ohm transducers are 50.00 each..

Wow . what a great find.

I hope someone can put scans of this up for all to see.

I thought you already had two dt48e 25ohm's one single entry and one dual
as per your sig, is this a third ? ?

I'd love to see the brochure! Although I'm in europe so sending it to me is maybe not the best idea ( I have a scanner though if it is not a problem ) . But I'd like to see it on the wikiphonia for all to enjoy

2nd actually. I also have the now discontinued 48e 8ohm version.. This must have been discontinued for a long time since it's not even in the brochure, along with the 48s.. No more 48e 25 ohms.. My main focus now is the 48s & 48e 200 ohm.. & maybe a back up 48a.. After that, I never want to look at another 48 again.. I could send you the copies if you'd like?

I believe I already described the differences between the 48a & 48e 8ohm/250hm. I have a 48a/48e 8ohm/48e 25ohm comparison thread you can search.. I also describe the cosmetic differences as well.

Not a problem. I would make copies of the original & send them to you. If you can post them in this thread or the appreciation thread, would be even better.

can you post the part # of the driver? It should show that in the diaghragm.

$50/each in 1991, and that was 18 years ago...

I'll look for it. Some of the numbers are very small.
