New Jecklin Float QA !!! - Page 10

post #136 of 663

Unfortunatly Quad are not very fast in answering to emails.

I'm still waiting for a reply.

Got an email from Manfred today

Good news indeed (but not very  good news for my wallet)

 

in a few days we can deliver you the Float QA incl. power supply.

dimensions of the power supply are (WxHxD) 200 x 125 x 308mm plus sockets, weight: close to 10Kg.

Yes, in case you switch on the power supply for headphone the speaker outputs are cutt off.

Congratulations and fantastic news.

Look forward to your impressions

Got a reply from Quad as well. There are two options: buy it and evetually return it, or drive 250 km to hear them.

I think I'll visit them.

You can compare them to your HE60's jecklinsmile.gif

Unfortunatly I have to sell the HE60s to buy the Floats. And at the moment there's also the problem of having the money

for the transformer. I wonder if I could use my SRM-323 to drive the Floats with a seperated box to create the bias of 1400 Volt

and being the adpter to the Float connctor at the same time. Or is it possible to modify the bias on the SRM-323?

Although I guess it's not possible.

The 323 doesn't have enough voltage swing to drive these and it will struggle with the large capacitance.

Sell the HE60s??? - that's sacrilege!  Jecklins MAY be good, but I seriously doubt that they'll outperform the HE60's

post #144 of 663

no one really knows, until someone (a) buys the QA's, and (b) builds something that can go to 11 in order to drive them properly (not some rubbish Jecklin transformer)

I have heard the HE60s for a while now. They are very good phones with exceptional pesentation of the accoustic space. But for

me it lacks in the deepbass region. For mixing Hiphop or Electro it's not the first choice. My 404 is far better for this. Yes the HE60 

can make classic sound unbelievably good. They are very good for any accoustic or "handmade" music. But it's not an engineering

instrument. I can't hold several very expensive headphones at the same time. Buying the HE60 left a big hole in my finances.

What other transformer would you recommend?

post #148 of 663

Ho do you know the transformer is rubbish if you have never tried it?

Its certainly looks a big step up from the original in terms of size and quality.

I'm sure an amplifier would be better though!  If they turn out to be that good perhaps we could persuade Justin to add the option to the BHSE biggrin.gif

You can laugh, they can cry, they can defend themselves, they can also stoned me for my statement, ... : The float QA is the best headphones in the world for me.

So, has anyone actually had his / her order filled and received it?

 

Hopefully mine will be ready soon.
