All Mad Dogs with Dog pads ordered prior to yesterday have now shipped. 

 

And there you go!  Dan the man!  Awesome once again. :)

In my case it was a paypal notification with a tracking number.  Dan has been very reachable and approachable for me via both email and PM, even answering pre-purchase amp questions.  For the record, we determined that the Pico Slim should at least be decent, it has 350 mW output, and Dan recommends a minimum of 100 mW.  It won't be a Schiit Lyr or other desktop with a nice +/- 15V swing by any means, but should do them justice for my use.  I listen pretty quietly and on the move from place to place most of the time.

 

Quick aside - the little Pico Slim does relatively not bad with the DT 770 600 ohm cans as well.  Not desktop amp level by any means, but very nice.

@gelocks and @aamefford

 

Just to check, have your (new) Mad Dogs come in yet?  Would like to hear on how they paired with the Leckerton UHA6SMKII and DACport respectively

Hello.

 

I already have the "previous" iteration without the Dog Pads and I can say that the Leckerton can drive them well enough on High gain setting and it sounds great.

The 209 or 627 OPAMP btw?

post #1282 of 6388

Still wondering if there are updated measurements for the new pads and all that...sorry if there are and I missed them.

Sigh, just checked tracking once I realized it was almost 2 pm and they weren't here...  Delivery is now expected tomorrow.  My impressions will be from am iPod touch driving a Pico Slim - should be a fine enough pairing, but certainly not the same as a nice desctop amp with +/- 12 or 15 V.

209 as suggested by Nick @ Leckerton for neutrality.

Yo, quick question, would this be better with a solid state (JDS Labs O2) or tube (Bottlehead Crack OTL) amp?

The crack is best with 300 to 600 ohm headphones.

I don't have either amp you mention; however, I do own solid state and tube amps.  On the SS side, I've got a Schiit Asgard and the headphone jack out of my Marantz 2270 (I prefer the Asgard).  On the tube side, I have 2 OTL amps, a cheap chinese OTL amp (Sense Phenix) and a Decware CSP2+, and 1 transformer-coupled amp (Bottlehead S.E.X.).  I prefer the Asgard to the OTL options; however, the S.E.X. is a great option.  I also have a Decware Taboo on the way which should be an even better match.  Do you normally have a preference for tubes or SS amplification?

How is the Asgard with the Mad Dogs?

Just lookin' for something that has a good price to sound/versatility ratio...
