Yes, that's right.

 

 

By the way, I don't appreciate the term Schiit connected to my Luxman here... xD Heh, well anyway, words can't describe how happy I am with this setup. This was the first time when I've been able to go out and just buy the exact gear I wanted. This is it.

I dont blame ya wink.gif. How do you like your Luxman compared to the p1u, are there any sonic differences?

Btw, nice Oyaide interconnects-- I personally love Oyaide stuff, had the DR-510 coaxial cable.

I never heard the P-1u, maybe sadly. My previous Luxman was SQ-N100, a terrific amp for both speakers and headphones.

 

Another one of items I've wanted for a while. Somehow I believe that they're mostly about the important aspects instead of magic and fancy look. Not saying that they don't look the part though, minimalistic and classy. I also have good experiences of rhodium plating so it was an easy choise.

I think I'm pretty much set.

 

Beautiful gear, but why U no like balanced cables?

 

post #15218 of 20178

I actually considered them, but I couldn't figure out any valid reason to get them.

Nah it's cool my question is answered, not the place for this discussion.;)  Just found it surprising.

Technically speaking the ATs are pretty sensitive. Balanced if nothing else would add gain and give less play on the Luxman's volume. No?

I'd say that's reason enough to go unbalanced.

That crossed my mind once or twice too and I could probably use that as my excuse. =D But I really don't know if it affects the actual volume heard on the phones.

You don't need an excuse - you have a sweet rig!

My current head-fi station.  I just did a little write-up in the full-size amp forum about the build process.  I had Shawn Phelps, former Bottlehead employee, build it for me.  I have all the respect in the world for the DIY crowd...I'm just not one of them!

 

Also, I have to give John Rutter credit for the base.  I sent him some curly maple and he did a beautiful job with it.
