AKG K500 love? - Page 4

post #46 of 47

My present everyday set-up:

 

 

Modified K500 connected balanced (two plugs), a special trick of the anode/cathode output of the Audiotailor Jade. Terrific sound stage and airiness. GEC 6AS7G (or Tung Sol 5998) output tube, Telefunken ECC808 driver tube (with adapter).

 

 

The standard K500 has a 1/8-1/4 inch plug, and if you've lost the adapter I've found a replacement. This adapter doesn't have the usual thread, but a larger one. AKG original to the left, Audio-Technica replacement to the right:

Hi, I'm thinking of bying the akg k500, but now I don't have the money to buy a good amp. I have a fiio e10k, does someone know if it's enough to have a decent result? I read somewhere that they need a lot of power.
