A-a. 

 

THE sexiest association with audio gear?

 

Nothing like powering down giant Krklec OTL mono blocks : http://www.sound-carrier.com/ The crackling of the numerous PL519 tubes cooling down is a very satisfying blessed relief after a long listening session - just like after a good ...

yeah I figured out how it happened. I've just unsubscribed from that thread because I almost posted on that one by mistake before.

Hey guys, im a total newby and im looking for a vintage integrated amp for <150$.

I was wondering if you guys could give me some tips on which ones are good for that price range?

(Atleast, what amps are good and be commonly found at that price range biggrin.gif)

I would be using it with the signature dj, which has an impedance of 32 ohms... So keep that in mind wink.gif

Thanks guys! And once again, im a newbie so if this isnt the way to ask the question, or if i have some things wrong with the post, please tell me.

First question - where are you located - state/city?  What main craigslist area are you near?  I'll check and give you a couple of ideas.

 

Glad to see you over here!

Just pulled it up, clicked electronics, typed vintage in the search bar, and got 67 hits. Already found a Kenwood KA-5700 integrated amp (I have TWO of them) in Lehi for $169.

And that my friend is a start and could be your answer. That is a great unit. 40 WPC, has meters and a great powerful headphone out.

And a Pioneer SX850 receiver in Sugarhouse for $150 with cassette deck.

Lots of options bud.

Just tryin to make sure i end up getting a good one... And i guess i should slow down too. I wont have any money for a week :P

Thanks!!

I'm listening to the 2220B with the HE-500's the best of one I have with these headphones. 

However my DAC is acting up. never ever ever never buying Nuforce again! I'm debating on selling this UDH-100 and saving up for a Schiit Gungnir.

That my friend is a tube shortwave radio receiver. Very cool, but not the kind of music-listening audio gear we speak of here.

Anyone try the Audeze LCD-X or XC with some vintage iron?

With 22ohm impedance and 95-96db efficiency, I wonder if there would be some background hiss/noise issues.

Given these efficiencies, it seems like the Audeze recommendation of 1-4 watts for optimal power requirement might be a little high(?)

post #10544 of 13371

The lcd-2 sounds darn good on all the Pioneers I've owned. No background hiss. I would imagine that the new series would be the same. 

post #10545 of 13371

Yes, the LCD2 was very good and quiet with all of my vintage receivers, but I found the sound sig a little dark. I can't decide whether to keep the HE-4 or try the X.
