FA-011 Rev3 review here-

 

Hope this was helpful to some, although staying up most of the night listening to my favorite tunes through the new FA-011 and a Woo WA7 isnt exactly torture :D

How are the newer pads?The old ones felt like sandpaper on my ears.

post #1940 of 2071

THey are similar to the old ones in material, only its a tighter twill weave. I dont like the feel of wool at the best of times, but i quite liked them. THat being said my brother who breaks out in heat rash everytime he wears wool might have issue with them? Actually im going to not tell him and make him wear them, we will be seeing eachother this weekend. Ill let you know man.

post #1941 of 2071

Ah so it is the new rev.2 pads. Just read it here now that you've posted it and I responded to your review with the same question. Anywho....I'm jealous with the new logos.

Got my tracking number today!  Depending on weather, should be in Monday biggrin.gif.  I hope I get the wood grain like mrbigsby's pair... he's the lucky one to be able to pick out his favorite grain.  (Great review btw, mr.B)

Defqon your welcome to AB mine with yours anytime mate.
mrscotchguy thank you so much man! Billy is awesome, he was working like a coal miner to get those orders out. If you ever need me to pick you out something feel free to let me know. Lately I'm at Noisy Motel as much as I'm home!! He just keeps getting new stuff in biggrin.gif just got these and the HP100 so I thought I was safe for a while. Then he tells me the JDSlabs new C5 is due in store soon!?!!!?

My pair is in my town at a sorting facility, though won't be delivered until Monday... stupid F5 key. cool.gif

Any mods for these to tame the harsh sibilance? i have the original version with the maroon/mahogany coloured wood and curly cable.

 

Ever since plugging them into my Lyr they sound like a bright, sibilant mess, sounded so much better poorly amped through my maverick D1.

What is this in refference to? The quality control issues? Hasn't this (In theory ...) been rectified in the new version anyway?

Roll in some warmer tubes.

I've got some tubes on the way.

 

GE 6BZ7

6N1P

RCA 6BQ7A

 

Don't know if any of those will be "warm" stuck using the stock tubes until they turn up.

Yes, mill or chisel out the square milled corners of the wooden cup or alternatively use some like thin Dynaxorb and dampen it, dual entry balanced XLR cabling. From my experience my FA-011 did not pair well with the Lyr at all.

I have not tried rev.3 that mrbigsby has tried that was released as of recent. But the previous 2 versions emit the same problems as the first release of the 011's.

+1. The FA-011 loves lots of power and very warm tubes to shine.
