No probs. I have only been listeing to the Master-6 since I received it so I will try to do a comparison between the Woo and M6 using the T1's this weekend.

However the T1's are not balanced so obviously will not be using the full potential of the M6 but at the same time the Woo will not be receiving the full potential of the NFB-7 because I am using single ended output.

But from the time already spent with the M6/T1's I would expect the M6 to be more detailed with better dynamics and deeper more powerful bass.

How many hours of break-in is recommended on the T1's before they completely shine?

In my opinion, within a few hours. The rest of the break-in is you adjusting to the sound signature. Which can takes hours or even days. 

Just my opinion..

I may have played 15-20 hours with them so far. Not fully satisfied though. The sound is a little "hard" imo.

 

EDIT: Well, before I change anything, I'm gonna play with them atleast a month.

Hard? What do you mean? If you find the treble on the T1 to be a little harsh and out of control, I understand. That is why I sold mine. But everyone hears things differently. Tube amps seem to be very popular with the T1. One of the reasons for that is likely the massive 8-9k treble spike. eek.gif

Funny you say that. I have to EQ the sound in Winamp. After 6Khz I put a downwards slope.

 

EDIT: I can't explain things in technical terms. But the way I hear it, it's like the Meier gear has a too tight control over the drivers. It has very little with frequency range to do.

I always refrained from tube gear. But maybe that is the route I have to go confused_face.gif

NilsTentacles,

if you find the T1's sound a bit too "hard", try the crossfeed settings on the StageDAC. I always use crossfeed with the T1 (Delay and Intensity switches on low setting). You lose a little clarity, but the sound gets a little less harsh in return.

 

Also, I strongly recommend to try a 120Ω adaptor when using the T1 with an SS amp. It seems to me that the Beyers like a high output impedance on amps (and most SS amps have a near zero output impedance).

post #2289 of 10477

I've had crossfeed enabled all the time. It doesn't help.

post #2290 of 10477

I have a tube buffer in my signal path along with the Meier Jazz. I'm lovin' the T1s so far.

post #2291 of 10477

Maybe I am a little hasty. The T1's actually sounds better each time I put them on. So the break-in is very evident. Not selling these cans the first thing I do :-)

I'd really say about 50-75 hours of burn in. FWIW, I consistently have preferred the T1s with good tube amps.

where might one find one of these 120 ohm adaptors?  I suppose meier, apuresound, moon....whomever can make them for you?

Definitely take some time to get to know their sonic signature. They have a number of virtues, that you might appreciate more over time.

 

I've had mine for half a year or so now, and I like them more and more. Especially with my Woo WA3 tube amp.

 

That said, I understand if some people decide that's it's not quite their cup of tea.
