I have been listening to the amp I built for David and it sounds great with low impedance

Headphones. The actual output impedance is 40 ohms that I think is a good match for

36 ohm headphones. Been listening on the Denon AH-D5000 that Stavros gave me

It is the best these phones sounded They are 21 ohms.

  What I can say about the sound is the amp has speed and control. I am not one that

has fancy terms to say about the sound of something.

I still think the Sennheiser 300 ohm phones HD650 and HD800 sound better on the OTL.

But the Denon and Grado 36 ohm phones sound the best they ever have on this amp.

The amp has been running for 3 days now running continuously to make sure there is

no problems.

I plan on packing it up tomorrow for shipping next week.

 

My girl friend L was listening yesterday and she never listens to headphones and said

David can't have the amp it is hers. It is her Valentines present.

It is bad enough I have to worry about the Europeans Lieven and Stavros stealing it.

Now I have to some how sneak it out of the house.

Remember, happy wife/girlfriend happy life. We will need her to let you continue building amp for us, I don't think David will mind wait few more weeks. biggrin.gif

Glenn's OTL is pretty good for low impedance as well, it drives HE-500 and Audeze LCD-3 with authority (though they can be a little too tubey for me at times), and it works well with TH-900 too!

Beware! Stavros may try to convince your girlfriend to deliver the amp to Athens! :eek:

I understand his mother can bake up some tempting rewards...

 

Interesting about the low impedance cans and the 300B.

They must love the current from those big Lundahls.

Current Grados are all 32 ohm - the HP-1000 were 40 ohm.

Let me know if you like to borrow some Grados to play with...mine are collecting dust since I got the HD600...

Forget the New York Times Crossword puzzle, you got a real puzzle inside the studio. :D

My girl friend L said all she needs is a hug from Stavros and his mother.

That would be good enough to grab the amp and run to Athens.

 

Thanks for offering the headphones but I will only have the amp one

more day

You guys only have one day to get the amp or convince L to grab the amp and head for Athens.
