I think you missed the point of my earlier post - I guess sarcasm really is the lowest form of wit. I was trying to say that 3 of the most respected amp builders in the headphone universe are based in Germany. Granted, the BCL is old news on Head-Fi, and Jan Meier is in 'semi-retirement', but I believe the Classic received good reviews here. I dont have to say any more about the Violectric amps.

Hi all

 

@maxvla

I currently own a Lehmann BCL in combination with a Cambridge Audio DacMagic. That is the combination to beat. I heard the Violectric V200 and it was on the same level than my Lehmann Audio BCL. The Violectric sounds a little warmer but the difference to my BCL was small. I do in fact prefer the more neutral sound of the BCL.

 

So i really hope that the Red Wine will stand out compared to my combo. But the combination of Amp/DAC is not necessary to me, i just hope that the combination of Amp/DAC/Cable brings out the best.

 

I believe from experience that a combination just have to "fit".

ok, thats bad...i only can hope that our sonic tastes are different. From your profile i know that you have a Stax SR-007. I have heard many Stax rigs over the years and i just dosen't like them. Don't get me wrong, the Stax SR-007 sounded fine but as always i felt that they lacked in the bass department. I think that they are great or Classic but not for Rock.

 

 

@palchiu

Thanks for the tip, i haven't heard from than til now.

 

@mwilson

Yeah...the LED's.....;-) - But the tubes, thats interesting. I am not used to tubes or tube rolling. How do for example the Siemens alter the sound? Brighter, warmer, better soundstage ? And how big is the difference to the stock tube? 

 

I really don't get it why the stock tubes should sound bad, or let say not good. I have read that Cavalli Audio uses these JJ tubes as stock tubes too. When, for example, the Siemens tubes are better, why not use them as the stock tubes. The price of a couple of tubes could not be the reason as we talk about gear in the 3.000 to 4.000$ class.  So why do they all use JJ as stock?

Unfortunately, I have to agree with you on the SR-007, they aren't keepers. I don't really have too much problem with the bass, but the treble spike at 9KHz gives me fatigue. They do sound fantastic with classical and only good to great for everything else. They will likely be sold soon as I prefer my custom IEMs.

Good luck.

As for the tubes, perhaps it is because the JJ tubes can be found in high quantity so they don't have to spend half their time digging for tube sources instead of making amps.
