Nope, just repeating what the scope said.

LOL what kind of scope said that a ProctoscopeL3000.gif

Could you point to where you got these numbers?

 

Inner Fidelity measured the Soloist to 2.2W in 32 Ohm and 623mW in 150 Ohm. This translates to about 1.5W in 50 Ohm. That was however a pre-production unit / a review unit, and Burson has told me, that they changed the power supply and thereby increasing power from 4W to 5W in 8 Ohm (their numbers). This means the production units are actually 25% more powerful than the one measured. That makes me estimate it to about 1.9W in 50 Ohms.

P=VI is where I got it ;)

 

They aren't exact because I'm reading off the chart and it's a 32ohm plot but it is ball park hence the ~.  If I was to estimate, then typically both numbers would rise since as impedance rises so does output voltage so 1600mW for the Soloist and 500mW for the EF-6 is likely more accurate, but it's still ~.

 

Search InnerFidelity for the amp PDFs.  I can't attach so here are some snips:

 

EF-6

 

Soloist

i just put the maddog alpha pads onto the he-6...

must say i like it v much, the sound took on more body..more voluptous bass

vocals still v clear, give it a try if u want a comfy pad. :P

the hifiman plastic ring fits perfectly in the alfa pads?

No, the flaps are bigger than the rig so they cover 3 mouting tips out of 4.

With some patience, I manage to mount the Alphas on my Hifimans with the 4 tips secured (4s, 5LEs and, recently, the 6s).

 

The Dog Pads are much easier to put, but they ain't as comfy and sound wierd in the treble.

err...i just pushed the slightly oversizedflaps beneath the mounting ridges...

and somehow the ridges all fit in after some unintentional jiggling..its a miracle of sorts.

 

whoever designed this mounting mechanism ought to be...s**t  :P

any hifimans reading this post?>???

Yeah biggrin.gif

 

It will fit eventually, just need some patience.

 

Dan (MrSpeakers) didn't have much trouble fitting the Alpha pads on the HE-500. He did measure stock velour vs Alphas, the sound is darker overall with not much change in the midrange (which is good, IMO).

The graphs is in the Mad Dogs thread (new or old thread, I don't recall)).

I am still listening to it, back of my mind..seems to tell me it moving towards the LCD2s...tongue.gif

@ Solude (or others who know this)

 

I know that P = V x I, but how do you find Watts from Vrms?

post #9194 of 14327

Pavg = (Vrms)²/R   or  (Vpeak)²/2R

 

For a steady state sinewave and a pure resistive load (planar magnetic are very close to that, luckily)
