post #2716 of 6907

Perhaps one day Schiit will release a circlotron OTL balanced tube SET that can pump good current into low impedance...I mean that was the design goal of such a design right?

 

This amp could sit along side the Mjolner as the Valahalla sat along side the Asgard.

 

I've looked long and hard and this circuit does not exist for headphones...

 

Whadaya say Jason?  We just need to educate the masses to the benefits of SET OTL.

 

Maybe I could buy two Valhallas...would the output impedance be low enough?

I know!

 

Jason, what you could do is release this balanced circlotron to drive low impeadance high current phones, and high impedance cans...and get this...use it as an optional pre-amp into the End Game amp - and there is your hybridised End Game amp.

 

This means the End Game can be hybridised optionally on the same platform, reducing development costs of a separate Hybrid Flagship.

 

Jason, are you listening!?!?!?

I'm not sure why this is rubbing me the wrong way and I'm not trying to call you out SP, but I would not want to respond to a post that ends this way...

From reading his two posts, he just seemed enthusiastic about his ideas. Not actually demanding... Just my 2 cents.

I have no problems with the heat from Schiit stuff, but I wish they would find a way to isolate the volume knob to decrease the sensation of burning to the fingers.


So you hold on to the volume knob the whole time you listen?  beyersmile.png

I kinda like the heat during the winter months.  The man cave gets cold then.  It makes for a great hand warmer,  biggrin.gif

Edit: Oops, didn't see there was another page. Obviously I was responding to Pelli, and imackler already said what I say below!

^ I read SP's post as having a kidding tone with a serious idea behind it.

I got humor in it anyway, FWIW.

Your probably right.  I must have been in a foul mood this morning and looking through that lens.  At the time I felt defensive for Jason as I bet he gets a TON of "advice" on what to do with his products.  No harm meant.

 

Cheers!

Alright, I have a little inquiry involving the Lyr. Has anyone done the speaker smoke magic trick?? I really don't want to do it with my HD650s or 701's so I'm just trying to think what would be cool...

Wait, you mean my headphones might blow up?
Dood, 6 watts is more than enough to let the magic smoke out of most headphones. Lyr packs a serious punch, and we expect that you’re grown-up enough to use it with respect. Lyr has a 20-second slow-start and fast-acting turnoff output muting relay, but we still recommend caution, especially if you’re tube-rolling. We will not be responsible for headphones damaged by Lyr.

I think he meant this...

I don't even hold my steering wheel the whole time when I drive! Only for turning left or right of the car.
