New MEIER AUDIO headphone amp "CORDA CLASSIC" - Page 6

post #76 of 312

Thanks AiDee. So it is therefore an enhancement to cross feed to produce a more natural (perceived) effect but can otherwise be used without cross feed. All good!

Dear headfellows,

 

> This is a nice feature. I wonder: does it relate to making the cross-feed more natural or is it an entirely separate enhancement?

 

> Certainly it's separately operable, but its intention is to compensate for some perceived slight energy loss below 2kHz which Jan's cross feed circuits may produce.

 

And so it is exactly. Maybe a better name for bass-enhancement would be to "tonal-balance". It is not to be compared to a bass-boost that works only at frequencies below 100 Hz. A headphone that fits the quality of the CLASSIC normally should normally have enough bass by itself and should not need bass-boost at all.

 

> I want one before christmas!

 

Maybe you're lucky. It seems that production may start by the end of this month. If all goes well I will have the first batch by the end of November.

 

I hope to publish more technical details and some pictures from the inside  in a couple of days on my website.

 

Also a production-prototype has been send to our fellow head-fier Skylab. He should receive his copy sometime next week.

 

Cheers

 

Jan

Thanks Jan smily_headphones1.gif

 

This is good news as Skylab also receives the new Audez'e LCD3 for review next week; and like me he has the LCD2 rev 1.

 

BTW, the CONCERTO is still my preferred amp with my LCD2, and just gets better and better! It sounds as powerful as the LYR despite the large difference in output, which shows there's no reason to have more power than you need. And the transparency, detail and clean transients of CONCERTO are superb.

 

I can only imagine what CLASSIC might be like! I look forward to more technical details and Rob's review.

 

Cheers, Andre

Is there any hint about the price range? I was thinking about getting Spl Phonitor but if this is cheaper (<1500€) and has crossfeed, Im going for this one. Is it digital or analog effect?

Yes, I look forward to trying the Classic with both the LCD-2 and 3 biggrin.gif

For some months ago, Jan told me that it was going to be a little bit more expensive than the Meier Concerto. (It was 595 EUR)

Hey, Skylab.

If you've got some time over, would you mind testing the Classic with the ED8 and write something small about it?

I would really appreciate it.

Sure!  That's a good combo to try.

Thanks! I hope and think they're a good match (At least I hope so, since the ED8 and the Concerto was a good match? I think that I saw you wrote that some time ago).

The new amps are looking good on paper!

 

It looks like I have a good excuse to make the shortish train ride to the showroom early next year and try everything out for myself :)

post #86 of 312

It's been a while...anything new?

Not long now though I should think.

post #88 of 312

Skylab actually mentioned he has one in his LCD-3 review.  Said he would be reviewing the new amp in the near future.

post #89 of 312

Yup, I have a loaner of the Corda Classic for review.  It will be a few weeks at least, though, because it is not next up in the review cue.

post #90 of 312

I'm looking forward to your review! If you still have the CONCERTO it would be interesting to compare the two amps.
