How exactly do I access the gain switches on the G 103?

You have to unscrew the 4 bolts on the top, two at the front, two at the back. The middle of the housing is made of two parts (top and bottom). After that, you just need to lift the top.

Well I got LCD-2.2s a couple days ago and I wasn't very impressed.  Specifically the lack of detail and how quickly the highs roll off compared to the HD600s.  I tried switching the gain on the G109 to +12db for a day or two because you know "Hard to drive orthos" and wasn't impressed at all bass presence seemed almost obnoxious,  switched back to +0db yesterday and I'm liking them a bit more.  I know there's quite a few people here with LCD-2s and lake people G109s, what gain settings do you use?  

 

I'm almost considering switching to HD800s but I don't want to give up on the Audezes quite yet.

Pop off the top and there are nice little jumpers that let you switch it.  They should be labeled, it's pretty self explanatory.

Hmm... Sounds rather like my memory of the LCD2's signature rather than an issue with the G109.
I use my 109 on the medium gain setting with my very inefficient HE-4's and they sound superb.

Headfonia just did a review on the G109S

Thanks for the Thomann.de link for ordering a Lake People G109-S. I ordered one earlier today (July 2, 2014)...looking forward to it.

@ Tuneslover

Take care !

What Lake People delivers to Thomann is normally set to 230 V Mains supply.

So it can be that your ordered item is not set to 115 V AC nor has the correct power cord !

 

Best Regards

 

Fried Reim (CEO of Lake People)

Yeah for amps set to 115 V AC you'll probably want to either order direct from Lake People via PayPal (instructions in the first post) or it looks like they have a new U.S. web store you can order from:

Thanks for the "heads up" Fried. I did request to ensure that they send me a correct North American compatible (115V) unit. Also hopefully they also noticed that my unit is being mailed to Canada. I did receive a confirmation email earlier today notifying me that the unit has been sent. Soon we'll see what they sent me.

Hi Fried! I just want to make you aware that Thomann responded to me with respect to the potential voltage issue with the unit that is currently en route to me in Canada. They indicated that the unit works either way and that all I need to do is use a North American power cord (and toss out, I assume the German power cord).

I forwarded their response to your email address. If possible, please have a look at it. I would appreciate your advise.

Hello again Fried, I received another response from Thomann with respect to how my G109S voltage has been set. They indicated that the manufacture's specifications say that the unit has auto sensing and adjusts automatically to the required voltage. If correct that would be awesome. Would you care to comment on this? Thanks!

Well I received my Lake People G109S from Germany's Thomann International today. Indeed it came with a German power cord, however as suggested by the Thomann technical experts I should simply substitute it with a North American 115V power cord, connect it to my source and power it up. Which I did...and...drum roll...it worked perfectly.

Naturally I gave it a brief listen and it certainly sounded pleasing (much more "mature" sounding than my Schiit Magni). I'll run it in for about 150 hours before I give further impressions. Good news about the auto voltage selector and a great price to boot (I wasn't charged duty or taxes...bonus).
