Meaning should I set my laptop volume @ the loudest volume and have the receiver volume to the preferred listening volume or it doesn't really matter what volume both are set to?

 

Also would it be okay if I hook up my iPod/iPad to the receiver?

Generally its better to have your hard drive at full volume (or as near) then everything else to suit, less data loss that way. However, some of these old amps are sooo loud that you have no choice but to lower your source level. But I would just do this from the media player.

 

When you get your dac, I would look into getting Wasapi set up so that you can bypass your soundcard and send a bit perfect signal to the dac.

Finally broke down and bought a hand-truck today. Tonight, the HiFiMAN HE-6 is leashed up to the speaker taps - naked... with no resistors. :veryevil:

And the results? Real, spectacular?

Judging by my experience, it should be a good match, Rarely does a vintage amp go wrong unless its poorly built or just plain bad quality.

 

The HE6 can actually be used as a good indicator of the quality of vintage amps.

And given how spectacular they sounded on the g901, that should really be a killer sounding combo.

How does it sound? A resounding YES! :normal_smile : This has been a regular pairing, nuthin' new. I merely posted pix to show off :biggrin:my new $19 hand-truck. After walking the big G back and forth to the center of the room and back for each session, after a couple of months I had it! H-e-l-l-o Home Depot...

I could use some Canned Air to blow out all the dust inside those nooks & crannies. Perhaps, over the weekend...

Happy

Thanks kindly, sir. My system is still emerging... slowly rolling out pieces from storage.

What are some of the members' best practices for dust maintenance with their vintage lovelies?

:popcorn:

I like to use a feather duster (to pick up much as i can), followed by an air compressor :evil:

You could try exfoliating 3 times a day... No dust! :D

Lol! In addition, I like to use one of those higher spec'd allergen air filters on my HVAC. That alone prevents 90% of dust issues. Good for your health too :)

All you need now is a telescoping pool skimmer pole and you will have the one thing you're missing - a remote!

I absolutely adore :wink: being "Remote-less!" It promotes movement inside the listening room. Plus, lines are more clearly drawn between vintage iron and :tongue_smile:platsicky eras.

I have a question...there is a big difference when using  pre-amp between my dac and pioneer sx1050. The sound seems more dynamic and full without the preamp. I've used both the lyr and A2 as pre-amp with the same result. Any thoughts?
