I could use some help with optimizing my SR71-B and LCD-2(r2) combo.
I emailed the folks at Audeze yesterday asking them which volume selector on the SR71-B would pair best with their 'phones, high, medium or low. They needed a manual so they could look up some technical information and advise me.
I've been emailing Ray Samuels requesting a link to either a SR71-B manual or technical information and he won't give it to me. All he will say is that the SR71-B can drive any headphone out there, and whatever setting those selectors are on will make no difference on performance. I don't know why he is taking this position, but there it is.
Does anyone have the kind of information that Audeze would want to be able to tell me which volume selector to use to optimize the pairing of their headphone to the SR71-B?
So far, the medium setting seems lacking and either the low or high setting sounds best. On low, I have to crank the volume up a lot, and on high I only need to move it up a bit to hear.
I'm not sure from a technical perspective what the issues are here. I have never understood the concept of impedance and headphones. I always thought that you plug them in and turn up the volume until you could hear. If someone could jump in here and set me straight, I'd welcome that because maybe I am asking something from Ray that is a false question.
At any rate, I got the balanced termination for the universal cable made by ALO and I am liking what I am hearing at this early stage.
