The mini-x can pump about 15w into 32 Ohms. Will be using the NFB15.32 as the DAC and pre-amp so am able to control the volume.

Anyone know what impedance the sz2000 runs?
post #9978 of 11259

16 ohm

 

lotta cans like the Perfect Sound dido and my Akai are going that route. I turned my amp gain off at first with the sz but switched it on and it's taking more to push than the 54 ohm 77's....impedance is an interesting spec. read a lot about it recently. The sz are 16

... You are going to have a home speaker entertainment system with the SZ2000's and that amp... Plus Hawaii, I believe that the 77's are 46 ohms.... I'm surprised you don't have a ridiculous home amp at this point too Hawaii!

I'm too active. Car audio goes with me from A>>>B My portable rig does the same but I'm not home too much. Later in life I'll grab a tube amp and high end Denon/Fostex's but for now I'm set. I got an ONKYO receiver porting my soundcard to a 5.1 system and another 7.1 running out the optical on the soundcard to a Yamaha DSP.  No tube amp yet though. After I leave Japan and return to Hawaii then....

We never had a falling out, buddy. xx

I was reading the description on amazon for the Q40's, and it said it features Extra-Large 40mm drivers that are bigger than most other headphones... XD... That's kind of funny... Despite the gimmicky marketing techniques that aim at the population that has no idea what a driver is, or what it does, or how big an average driver is for that matter, they still are now on my list for cans in going to buy. So far on that list #1 Sennheiser HD 598. #2 JVC HA-MR77X #3 M-Audio Q40 #4 V-Moda Crossfade M-100 #5... Don't have one yet. :/

Thanks for this

Honestly i think that after 50mm driver size basically just effects how loud a headphone can get before blowing up.

Not in all cases, but yes. That is mostly true of drivers... I want just a pair of 35Cm bass speakers with sound funneled through a tube to my ears... Lol. WUBOOOMMM!!!... *goes deaf*

55,56,57

 

My favorites are 55 and my second is 57. Some very expensive cans have a 56 (can't remember which?) The XB1000 seems proof of dynamic driver limits too far beyond 50. I can hear a 40mm and predict it's demise. It has a physical limit. That +10 +15 +17 mm does make a difference in getting louder and deeper before distorting. I still think the Beats studios ...when they were Monster/Dre  before the re-tuned em' were about the limit of 40mm in the sub 120Hz area. They were not crap. Over priced? well....not really considering what 300 bucks will get you today in some cases....but they tuned those to borderline spec limits. 

 

Only the Perfect Sound dido have ever surpassed the bass quantity at 40mm and you'll pay more than 300 bucks for that improvement.

 

40mm is not and will never be a part of my collection again. Unless @gelocks wakes up one day and says....

 

Those dido are going to badboy with a note saying to keep em...and I'll pay the intl shipping too!!
 
Unlikely such a mental collapse would occur and surely someone who loves and cares would cart him off to a hospital before he reached the post office....sadly:biggrin:

@Hawaii, other mid-range amps (that I know of) that have a pretty good bass boost are the JDS Labs C5/C5D and the Headstage Arrow 3G. However, neither have the sheer power output of the E12.

I love my E12 so much. The gain switch let's it power my 600 ohm DT770 and could easily handle more. I use it for my D2000 as well, and the bass boost switch is so nice.

Just placed an order of Yamaha MT220. Will see if it's a potential slight sound quality upgrade compared to Q40 while still providing satisfactory bass department. That's my expectations, minor mids/highs improvements & some more significant soundstage/imaging improvements but maybe not the hard-hitting thumpy bass I can feel (that still sounds nicely textured) of Q40. We will see. 

I realize I post this on the 666th page, hope that's not a bad omen. lol
