Yes, but that is the best time to say: "Lai See Dai Loi" and take the money!
It seems lately I took my eye off the ball bowl. Because Gaiwans make nice gifts, I'm down to my last two. Should they become lost, broken or stolen, imagine the horror! I'd be listening to late-nite Jazz sipping Jasmine Pearls from... Styrofoam?
*shudders at the thought*
Happy New Year everyone!
Enjoy the single-life while it lasts...hard to justify Head-Fi hobby afterward...
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
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.
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!
