Should I get the Asgard or Matrix M-Stage to amp my HE400s?

Between those two Iike the AG the best. It will run quite warm though, so be warned about it. For my money, I'd get a used lyr for another $75 or so from the forums here. Definitely worth the extra cash IMO if it's in your budget. 

 

gL!!

it'd be interesting to know how you think the mini x does with the he-6.  If it's favorable, I might end up getting he-6 instead of lcd2.  Then again that's more incentive to power an lcd-2 with the mini as well.

Thanks.  It sounds like an amazing amp for its price.  Might be my next purchase, even though I got the O2 not too long ago.

 

One of the lines near the bottom concerned me about T1 being warmer than HE-6, though.  Might stick with LCD-2 afterall.

 

I'm also interested in seeing just how big its transformer is.

Yeah,  For the sale price of $179 it's a steal..

post #2692 of 18077

Does it have relays for powering on and off?  How much/little noise does the volume knob have when  adjusting?

post #2693 of 18077

No noise at all (with the headphones I tried on it).

 

Are relays the same as triggers?  If so then yes.

post #2694 of 18077

The protection circuits basically.  You know the 10 second delay on power on and off with the clicking sounds.

You mean used in Europe? If he would buy it used from america he would still have to pay import taxes and all that.

 

I'm not saying the MDs wouldn't be suited for him, just that not quite as cheap outside America.

I don't know if there is anything mrspeakers can do about that, but the import taxes really are ridiculous.

I think I may have to join the he-400 bandwagon soon! biggrin.gif but I'm still concerned over revision/driver update issues. Anyone know if they are working on another revision or if they've settled with the rev.3?

After the recall everything now is back to r2 with no plans that I know of to make any more revisions. Should be safe.

O,  OK.  So I just turned it on and off about 5 or 6 times.  There is no 10 second delay at all.  I get a click right after I hit the switch, like right after within 1 second but still with no delay.  What's that?

post #2699 of 18077

Might just be a surge of current making the drivers pop?  If that's true, I'd be careful using the mini with headphones that can't take lots of power.  Planar Magnetics should be rugged enough to handle.

post #2700 of 18077

O,  that wouldn't matter.  I always either turn the volume all the way down.  Or plug the headphones in after the amp is powered up.  I learned that a long time ago.
