Thanks.  I could have sworn I posted these pics before.  I can;t remember.

 

Rig with cans, and restoring / repainting the Darkvoice 337 chassis.  Testing before buttoning everything back up.  The faceplate is a royal pain to get on and off.

 

 

All done, with tube cage and new power switches.

Chord Hugo, Bluetooth-paired with an Apple iPod Touch 64GB, playing music with MOG. At the time of this photo, I was walking around with the AKG K812, and didn't want any extra wires dangling from the rig, so I opted to use the Hugo's Bluetooth connectivity. 

While this setup certainly doesn't extract the best from the Hugo, it is fantastic to have Bluetooth connectivity (and MOG) for a quick fix of music.

Thanks for sharing this Jude. It looks amazing.

I always love seeing those Little Dot MKVIs and MKVIIISEs. Huge bang for the buck and they look fantastic too.

I leave my cages off too. I wanna be able to enjoy the tube aesthetic on display.

Is it worth upgrading from a La Figaro 339 to a little dot mkvi or mkviii to take advantage of my balanced DAC? My heapdhones are recabled balanced as well.

My new Sennheiser HDVA 600 headphone amplifier and Sennheiser CH 800 S balanced headphone cable arrived today.  It didn't take me long to get the Musical Fidelity X-Can V8P headphone amp out and the new HDVA 600 installed.  The headphone rig now consists of a Sony Vaio/JRiver Media Center 19 via USB to the W4S DAC2, Oppo BDP-83 as a transport feeding a digital signal to the Wyred 4 Sound DAC2 which is feeding the Sennheiser HDVA 600 with balanced Wireworld Silver Eclipse interconnects, Sennheiser HD800 headphone with CH 800 S balanced headphone cable.  I have 13 hours on the HDVA 600 amp and about 28 hours on the HD800.  Considering that break-in is on going this setup is sounding outstanding.  Listening to Lee Ritenour - Rhythm Sessions hi-res download (24/96) right now.  Just fabulous.

I can't answer that question since I haven't tried balanced yet. Also don't know how that amp is you got smily_headphones1.gif But I guess if you got balanced stuff why not try it.
