My pigtails work just fine for the HiFiMAN HE-6... a-l-l  n-i-g-h-t. What are y'all afraid of overseas? :p

I've had mine leashed to more than the Aleph running the HE-6, but I have yet to test the T1 using them.

 

Sounds like a plan for tomorrow.  :blink:

I have no idea how to make one of these cables and don't want to spend a fortune...

But... it is tomorrow. :normal_smile : We wanna know. And granted, I watch the volume but yeah, I routinely push through 265 watts per channel! :veryevil:

I shall rephrase to "Tomorrow as in when I get home from work." :veryevil:

As for me, you are not far off the mark!

I surpassed the crazy stage a long time ago, I am even worse now!!!!!!!

I guess I could always add resistors once the drivers are blown. :normal_smile :

The resistors is to protect you from yourself. Without the resistors there is nothing stopping you

from turning the volume up and blowing your headphones.

I suppose if you have self control you can hook the headphones up direct it will sound better. But if

you leave the volume turned up and feed signal into the amp. Buy buy headphones and maybe your ears.

Plus on a tube amp with a output transformer it should have the proper load or the output transformer can arc over.

Absolutely. I use resistors on the tube monos. It is the big bad solid state Sansui G-22000 I'm running naked @ 265wpc. However, I watch the volume and the volume control knob has an inner lock ring one can set to not accidentally exceed. Additionally, when I power-on I always make sure the volume is at zero and cans unplugged.

 

That said, once everything is proper, yum-o!

I thought I was the official cookie tester and the assistant to hold the cables while you test capacitors at 233 V and crazy enough to let you touch the live voltage to see what 230V and 50Hz feel like!!!!!!!!!!

 

Just as well Mama wasn't watching and the girls were out shopping...............

 

 

 

I am sure Glenn is not offended Steven, he has a great sense of humor.

Sweet pig you mean, I am fat enough to be one..............

Glenn has brilliant ideas and I feel privileged to own two of his very nice amps.

 

 

Very nice Clayton!

How was dinner?????

 

 

I couldn't agree more!!!!!!!!!!!


Yes I am nuts and did touch the live wires plugged in at Stavros house just to see if 50Hz in Europe feels different then 60Hz in the USA.

It does feel different. 233 not so bad compared to 480 at work as far as pain goes.

Stavros you are still my official cookie tester and you will get the amp to evaluate as soon as I have time to build it.

 

Steven I did not get offended not sure why you thought that that I did.

I made David's 300B amp to hook direct to the 36ohm phones with no resistor but this is for the LCD-X phones

You can hook direct to the 16 ohm output with in efficient phones.But I would pot a 30ohm 10watt resistor across the output terminals 0 and 16 for a load on the amp.

The headphone Jack has resistors that are the same as in the Leben CS-300 and I would use this for sensitive high impedance phones.

And it puts a load on the 16 ohm tap on the output transformer when the phones are plugged in.

It is for the LCD-2 (60 ohm) and HE-500 (38 ohm) with my 300b you built. So you wouldn't recommend using the speaker taps?
