Those are standards for the signal level coming out of the source equipment. In other words the amp needs not be as sensitive for a +4dBU (studio standard) signal source as it needs to be for a -10dbV (roughly the home audio standard) source. Note also that the units are different between the two standards and IIRC the difference is really more like 12dB  than 14dB.

I ordered just a couple days ago too. Sent them an email looking to see if I could get credit back. Otherwise, I'm going to cancel and reorder.

Can anybody throw up a quick list of what headphones work well with the BHC.

Sennheiser 6x0, most of the Beyers that are 300 ohm...others can help me fill in.

I just ordered last week, I'm not thrilled...  Don't think I'll cancel and reorder though.

Yeah, it happens, I'm not going to stress.  I learned last year not to order from 1964ears near a Holiday.  I totally wasn't expecting a labor day sale.  The sale popped up while I was still waiting on my V6's, though not by much.

I removed the cascade bypass caps I was experimenting with and have been running the with my original JFX films for a few days in stock form to re-accustom myself with the presentation. Next up it’s the turn of the Valab Fast Power 47uf pio (polypropylene in oil)which I am going to try first with just one 47uf capacitor with the 600ohm T1 and then with two paralleled for 94uf. A couple of different bypasses will also be given a go in a week or two.

Any experience for the AKG K812 (36 ohms)? Mainline or SEX?

I just wanted to say that I hate all of you in this thread.  I want SO badly to build a Crack after reading about all of your builds.  Doc ALMOST got me with the sale, but I managed to hold off.  

 

Just have too much stuff right now and incoming to justify it.  

 

Carry on.

The true spirit would be to sell off stuff that hasn't even arrived yet to fund the purchase of new toys... :biggrin:
