Lake People G109 / G103 thread - Page 11

post #151 of 532

Or maybe it's some kind of balanced mode magic? Hmm... Perhaps there is no need to upgrade in this case with single-ended mode. But I'm not sure though. :)

Well, Lake People will be happy to sell a G109, I'm sure ;-)

And it is a good amp, no question. I've never heard the G103, but still I'm quite sure that its not a difference in sound that reflects the additional investment. If the other features are of use... then maybe an upgrade is worthwhile.

A real symmetric amp design will make each stage see only half the load, therefore they may play with more authority.


 

Given the K701/702s sensivity of 105dB @1mW they will peak at around 123dB -- way beyond healthy levels. I really don't think it comes down to raw power... slew rate may be a factor, and more powerful amps are often better in that regard. Still no reason to upgrade from G103 to G109 I think.


 

It's dB /V not dB/mW for K7XX/Q701 wich translate to 93 dB/mW for  this models .

Correct -- obviously a whole day looking at my computer screen does not work out too well regarding details late at night ;-)

So it tops out quite a bit earlier, but the driver still is toast when confronted with the (full) output of either the G103 or the G109.

yep , better invest in a side grade or better headphone to have another "coloration" , than moving up with G109 .

Just got a G103-S, and am loving the sound with my Light Harmonic Geek Out 1000 and HD800. Audio nirvana.

Congratulation!
It will serve you well... I think its a good example of studio equipment: what was saved on design and enclosure went into audio quality..

Received my G109-S today. Works perfectly with my HD650. Great Tonal Balance, solid construction. Can't wait to use it with a HD800.

Thats interesting... would not have thought that the combination with the HD650 works out as the G109 is a touch warmer than neutral itself. Which might work well with the HD800 on the other hand...

I wouldn't call it warm. But you're right, there's a tad more bottom/lower mids in it which leads to a fuller sound impression. It gets more obvious with my K701 and K601.

 

Any impressions/experiences with the dt880 coupled with the G109?

The G109 drove my 600 Ohm DT880's beautifully.
It also works magic with my HE-4's. I have stopped auditioning amps now - I don't see how I can find a better one at the price of the G109.

Same here, G109 + 880/600 ohm, great combo!

Interesting. Had the dt880 250 Ohm version for a while and found the treble to be very fatigueing. I'd love to try them with the G109. Is there any difference between the 250 and the 600, fatigue wise?

post #164 of 532

anyone here have 103 with hd600?

Sorry, I never heard the 250 ohm version.
