Unfortunately I do not still have a Concerto.

That was a shame :-)

I was hoping to find an excuse to (or not to) justify a upgrade from the Concerto in a direct comparison to the Concerto.

Something to say about it, Skylab?

(hype!)

I don't plan to comment much at all until the review is done.  It sounds good, but I haven't really analyzed it yet, just casually listened.

Okay! I see...

 

Don't forget ED8!

Looking forward to the review.

Does this mean it is ready to be ordered, or is this just the information?

Just the information, that there is something new on the site.

Thanks incus beerchug.gif

 

With 14dB (5 x) in high gain and 15V max (over 10Vrms) I think this will easily power the Audez'e LCD2 with excellent dynamics, as well as 600 ohm dynamic phones like Beyerdynamic T1. I wonder how it will go with the Hifiman Orthodynamics?

 

With these power/gain figures it looks perfectly tailored for the Stagedac with its 2.2Vrms output.

 

I also like the finer step-size of .5dB to go with Jan's terrific volume control.

By my calculation, you can drop the volume to about -34db in low gain mode which will be about 12db louder than the 2Stepdance at minimum volume. I am surprised.

Good point. Finer control but I guess it may not get low enough for sensitive IEMs.

 

Ah well, guess there had to be compromises somewhere. The finer step-size is great for equalizing SPLs between different DACs for example, but that's not something one does very often.

The Corda Classic has plenty of power for the LCD-2/3.  Not enought for HE-6, though.

post #105 of 341

 

Thanks Rob. Looking forward to your review needless to say (but no pressure, especially in view of the new message in your sig!) wink_face.gif

 

Yes I figure over 2W rms into the LCD2 rev 1, slightly more into the LCD3. I understand the HE-6 is certainly a different animal though.

 

Back to the LCD2, I'm still at odds with some in that I find the Concerto (~960mW rms into rev 1 I figure) has enough enough and great attack. I've never detected clipping. That said, I'm seriously interested in what the Classic will do with its extra power and whatever else Jan has improved.

 

Cheers, Andre.
