No hp amp/dac in pic except the DV336SE as it's only there so I can fire her up after few more mods today to ensure QC :).

 

Profile stuff either on bench or the other audio rack downstairs.

 

Enjoy. Nothing special just bunch of low-mid fi stuff. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Black sheepskin leather for the headband. 

Which is your favorite Headphone?

^^ LugBug...that is the very receiver that I owned in high school. redface.gif I saved for two summers cutting grass to buy "my system." It lasted about 15 years and then developed an electric short. Wished that I would have kept it. 

 

Now I own a 20 year old Denon that sound really sweet on the hp output stage. Just  added a sacd player, free biggrin.gif, this week and man does that combo sound really good. 

 

Congrats on the vintage gear, enjoy!!

Nice one! I'm so surprised by the sound from the hp out. Don't know how many watts its kicking out but I can hardly get the volume pot off the ground. I've had to lower my computer volume for now until I get some attenuator plugs. I thought it would sound very warm and dull and that I would need to add a bit treble sparkle. But I've got one notch of bass on and the treble is neutral. Big clear and refined. Not bad for something that was made in 1977.

Maybe the person who did the recapping removed the resistor from the Headphone out (to suit modern headphones). Most of the vintage stuff tap headphone from speaker out, with resistors ranging from 200 to several hundreds ohm. Mine were 95WPC, with 470 ohm resistors; I still have some volume with sensitive stuff like Dt1350

 

If I remember right, you have a C2.2 which you can try using as a pre-amp to the Pioneer - it's worth a try. Audio gd incidentally made really good pre-amp. I bought mine and used it mostly as pre instead of headphone amp

Good thinking batman! I'll give that a go tonight with my C2 :)

Just tried it with my M-stage as pre. Works a treat! Thanks Khaine1711

I see nothing to dislike in this setup (perhaps the red Xbox is a bit much).
