DT880 600Ohm/250Ohm considering that I'm using a Total Bithead - Page 2

What's a good tube amp to get to pair with the dt880 below $200.

I'd look for a used LDII or LDIII. Both would be great at powering DT880/600s.

Is there a big difference between the LDII and LDIII?

well as with all things audio, these amps should follow the law of diminishing returns, so buy the best you can but expect that the improvement generally will not equate to the price difference. the ld mkIII will be the better amp for sure as per ld's recommendations and specs, but as to how the difference, i do not know...

 

i would suggest that you get the best that you can acquire if you can

Can anyone tell me why exactly the 600 ohm version sounds better?

post #24 of 26

Less masses to be moved due to thinner coil wire, and tuned differently.

post #25 of 26

I thought is was a reduction in the mass of the diaphragm.  

post #26 of 26

Thinner wire + same number of turns = same field strength + higher impedance + lower mass

 

There's no reason you couldn't make a lighter diaphragm with a lower impedance.
