About my question though, I bought this amp slightly used and it didn't come with a manual. I've been reading around the forums and such for how to care for tube amps and have stumbled on a lot of different ideas.
I was just wondering if someone could clear up how I should properly turn off and turn on this device. Right now this has been my routine:
Please note the HiFiMan EF2A does not have an off switch, the power switch seems to put it in a standbye mode.
- My volume port should be all the way down, I switch the power switch up taking it off standbye, and after a few minutes gradually raise the volume pot.
- I turn the volume all the way down and switch the power off which puts it in standbye.
My question is, is this an OK method? Would defintely appreciate any reasoning behind why to do other things.
And to close, Heres my eyecandy, very please with this setup very excited!!!!
Also as a final note: before buying this amp i heard some complaints of it being crazy loud and not being able to push it past 1/4 of the volume pot, I find this NOT to be the case, I run these with my grado sr60i's at usually around 1/2 the volume pot at a very comfortable listening level and grado's are low impedence so i'm sure other phones have even more freedom.
