They manage that with 102 dB sensitivity :)

Indeed Skylab. High sensitivity FTW!

I've read that the DNA Sonett does not drive them adequately. Is this opinion, or are there technical reasons for this?

post #514 of 10477

I ordered my pair a week ago. On friday I got a call from the store asking me to confirm my order. They also told me I should expect it to take a month before they get here. The waiting is already killing me.

 

Is my LD Mk3 likely to be good enough until I can afford a proper amp?

post #515 of 10477

I'm doing the waiting game too. Let's hope ours is not from the ostensible thinner-brighter batch.

 

For the time being the T1's will be going through my Burson HA-160 amp. The reviews appear to be mixed about that combo. It will just have to do for now. It's that or my Arcam integrated speaker amp headphone jack (which is actually not bad).

 

Does anyone have any experience with the T1's and the Woo WA6?

I am on the same boat. Mine will be sent on July 12th.

Ouhhhh, where did you read this??

 

Nevertheless this may be opinion but doesnt correlate with mine :)

Would an EF5 be a decent match for the T1? I'm trying to see if I "really" have to spend more than that to get decent performance out of it.

The LD MKiii is an OTL amp....a great match for the 600 ohm T1s. It should be a fine mid-term/tier amp for them.

Since we are talking about inexpensive amps for T1.

 

What other OTL amps would you recommend up to $500-$600 that would be a good match for T1s and not be something just 'for the time being'? LD IV SE?

Someone will mention the Woo Audio 3, I've been trying to find one used but it seems like no one wants to sell it.

I checked it earlier and the problem is I am located in Europe and I am not sure shipping and handling plus customs would not make it more like $1000 purchase instead of $500-$600. 

 

Anything else that can be bought from places other than US?

That opens things up a bit..... I have a LD MKiii. Just asumed it would not have the power for a T1.

my guess is it can because i remember testing mkiii long time ago with my dt880/600.  it did ok.  it sure have enough power but just didn't sound good/good enough to me at that time
