I've a feeling that I have to open the v800 to do this right?

 

Would there be a guide with pictures that can help me with this process?

Do you have the manual? It is quite straight forward and done in minutes. Look at page 21. If you do not have the manual by hand: http://www.audiophysics.hk/downloads/pdf/22/V800-E%20Manual.pdf

Thanks, I will give that a good read.

  As for my previous question for the v200, would it advisable to flick both the +6 and +12 at the same time?

post #1759 of 2644

If you thing the volume is to HIGH, you need to flick the -6 (minus) and then -12 - or both. I should expect you could leave them in neutral if you reduce the gain on the V800. :)

 

Yes; you can flick both - if you want to.

I noticed that we have pretty much the same set-up, Loev.  What works best for you?

V800 + V200 + LCD-2 is, and have been for quite some time, my to-go combo. A perfect balance between "relaxed" and "powerful" sound. 

 

I use the +6dBu setting in the V800 and neutral gain on the V200. 

 

What headphone did you go for with the V800/V200?

Loevhagen, do you still have your BCL?
post #1763 of 2644

The BCL was a long time borrow from a friendly head-fier.

I use a pair of RS1-i and SR-325is.  Which, looking back at it now, that probably explains why things are so loud.

 

I'm longing to get an LCD2 or T1.

I'm curious if anyone has heard from Robert at Aphrodite CU 29 . . . he seems to have vanished . . .

Hello, I have the same question. I recently bought some hd800's and was looking at the v200 or Graham Slee ultra linear. Which one would be a better upgrade?

I just heard from Robert at Aphrodite cu29.  His email crashed for a day or so . . . all is well.

Robert took very good care of me with my V200 purchase a couple of months ago. It really is an awesome amplifier. I find it to be the perfect balance between musical warmth, authoritative bass and just the right amount of top-end sparkle to be fully satisfying, but with NEVER a strident note. That's so hard to find. This all being said in the context of: Mac Mini / Audirvana Plus / Wyrd4Sound Dac-2 / V200 / Hifiman HE500s and some very good cabling.

I really wish all vendors out here were like Robert, he's the best.biggrin.gif

post #1770 of 2644

I just sent him an email and thanks for the vendor. Any hd 800's owners out there who would like to comment on the v200 synergy or give a small review. Thanks
