Yess i hate u.because of that...lolz..kidding...in all honesty I am not using it anymore..its all wrapped in and.its for sale now..am now waiting for something completely different....am going SOlid state now.. Oh the horror biggrin.gif

A friend of mine just bought a lyr with amperex orange tubes in it..and i congratulated him..am happy for him..he is on a budget..and in that case the lyr is in my eyes one of the best choices for the price..but i warned him also about the tuberollitus..a very deadly desease..heheheeh
But still...i believe that power isnt everything... Its more about control and quality... Look at those wonderfull quality vintage amps..they sound heavenly..but do weigh a ton..if u look inside u know why... wink.gif

No, it's just a normal power cable to the internal power supply.

I am also on a budget.  That's why I bought the Emotiva and the Woo WA22 so I could experience both ends of the budget spectrum.  :D  It's all good guys!  Xmas is coming for a lot of us.

I thought you were getting a Crack, what happened to that? 

 

(which by the way is a "budget" amp)

 

...that you would be pairing with those world class CodeXs...so I dont see why you were lashing out against budget minded posts here in the HE-500 thread.  You should either get the audio-gd Master-2 monoblock and Master-7 DAC combo or the WA22/Master-7 combo to really get the most out of the those CodeX's =p  </joke trolling>

My Yamaha A-S2000 weighs in at 50lbs. lol. It's not even that tall, but it's jam-packed with heatsinking and a bulky transformer :)

 Haha that could mean a lot of things depending on what car you have!  Hell if you are rocking a 1994 Honda Civic then Im pretty sure most DAC/Amps cost more ^_~

Dear friend..am not lashing to anybody...i just believe in investing in ur rig to get the best out of ur headphone...its my opinion...i respect others opinions ofcourse..

Let me shine a light on what textfeud meant..(nice car u drive by the way..a classic porsche..is that one with an engine with aircooling?)..

But first of all..
I think ur mistaken with koiloco..he had a crack... I never wanted a bottlehead crack..i did once say it was a good amp..thats correct!

I from the start wanted something really special and unique to upgrade from my heavily modified and very special 337.. As i once said..i heard lots of amps..and not many was better then that amp..so i wanted best of the best in my budget..so i contacted gilbert from blue circle audio... And he designed me an amp capable to drive a he6 easily (i was planning to buy a he6 next year..but the code-x was a deal i couldnt resist) my new amp is a headphone version of their almost 20.000usd worth of NSL speaker amp.(check for info on google).. Its custommade made with the best components u can get..completely opamps based and pumpin out at least 5watts into 50ohm through its dual xlr 3pin plugs..its a balanced design..
So no crack for me.. Blue circle audio..it will be my endgame amp. And am sure it will be a pair in heaven with the code-x..

any idea when u get urs?
