Review Decware Taboo. An Amazing Achievment - Page 19

post #271 of 415

Taboo is really just a speaker amp that happens to work great with orthos and thus it was added a TRS connector

6 Watts good for Planer or speaker.....

post #273 of 415

Remember that's 6W 8 ohms.

 

Chris J calculated 2W plus into 50 ohms (LCD2r1; LCD3; HE-6 as well?), nearer 2W flat into 60 ohms (LCD2r2) based on the output impedance of the Taboo transformer. Hope I've quoted Chris correctly.

 

It's not all about power of course. Taboo's design and construction philosophy offers high transparency which can be optimized (or not!) with its flexible tube-rolling options. The tubes don't have to cost the earth either...

I have the CSP2+ & Taboo with the 945s.   I don't really have speaker experience outside of this, but I find the set up fantastic.  Thankfully my space is limited otherwise I'd be tempted to head for the 944s which would make me lust after the MK3.

I watched a bit of the ZenFest via the web and I am afraid if I was there I would just load up the car with the HD1's!

post #278 of 415

anyone here tried the lcd 2 with the taboo with mainstream eletronica like skrillex and david guetta or rock like offspring and nickelback?

Hello,

Does anybody have tried AKG K 701 and Decware Taboo ?

I have tried once Leben CS 300 + K 701 and it was fabulous ... even if there's a price mismatch ...

How good is this amp with the HD800s?  Or is there a different amp in the Decware lineup that works better with them?

post #281 of 415

CSP2+ is he way to go with high imp cans. Taboo is for speakers - and orthos.  CSP2+ and the Taboo is supposedly a great pre-power amp combo - they are made for each other.

Ardilla is on the money (As usual!)  The CSP2+ is designed for dynamic HP's and the Taboo for Planer due to its higher output power (6W per channel as a speaker amp)

 

Here is the CSP2+ in action with my HD650's....

My Taboo in action.  I am giving my Leben a rest while I really get to know it.

Nice! Are you using EL84's?

post #285 of 415

Yes.  Currently I am using a pair of Amperex EL84/6BQ5s.
