The extra output voltage over the iPad LOD really helps as the single gain amps rely on that voltage.

 

iPad > iStreamer > 6CL6 Spud Amp > HD600 ... this is good!

Awesome setup :)

Furrall:

 

Do you think the look of the future (for us geeky/nerdy/headphony type folks) is a bakelite knob and wires that go into the top?

 

I want to love it but I'm having problems with the look and feel.;)

post #17254 of 18924

I wouldn't say it's the future at all but this is a good design and architecture if you are building custom, one of a kind amplifiers. 

This architecture separates the the L/R channels and power supply from the amplifier section and allows easy to access to the components. 

Think how much more complicated this wiring would be if all the inputs, outputs and power supply were all in the back, and the signal having to travel through the power supply to get to the input tubes and then back past the P/S again to reach the speaker taps:

It's form over function!

And I like the bakelite knob...which is an easy swap anyway...cheers!

I just love how they've taken ownership of being experimental with their stuff. It's latin-flavored, acid-jazz inspired, and and fueled by love and ambition for music. I was surprised that I didn't find another fan on here either until you!

I just gave them a listen for the first time thanks to you.  I really like 'em!  Thanks for introducing me to them.

No problem. If you're a fan of experimental stuff, check out Hiatus Kaiyote too. They're more funky and soulful, so they are my very favorite modern group. My all-time being Earth, Wind & Fire.

The advantage of tube amp is,

it always come with heater and lamp features without additional charge :D

 

post #17260 of 18924

I'm trying out a new transportable setup to replace my old work desktop rig (which was a DAC1 > Auditor > PS1000).

 

The amp is a bit of a throwback to 2004, a little silver Headsave Classic that I recently bought from LTSFBH. The HD650 is an almost-new unit that I just got in last week from mstorie, and I bought the ODAC new last year. Currently it's all running off of a USB-based Daphile server with a 1.5TB removable hard drive to draw about 10,000 songs from.

 

The whole combination isn't nearly as technically proficient as my old stationary setup (nor does it drive the HD650 to its full potential), but the sound signature agrees with me more and the HD650 isolates better than most open cans. Besides, it's a million times more transportable now if I want to bring everything between work and home.

Nop lol, just not enough space on my desk. I must buy a bigger desk later to properly put my speaker.
