Chris doesn't like rabbit holes. :D
He gave up on vinyl pretty quickly (rabbit hole), and doesn't tube roll (rabbit hole).
What was the preamp mod? I left mine with Alex at the Austin meet. And if I didn't already mention it, the RCA coin base 6SN7's are great for the brighter cans.
I should also mention that we had a really big Cavalli presence at the Austin head-fi meet. We had two LG's, 1 LF, 1 LL v1, and 1 LL v2. It seemed like lots of people got some good head time with the LG's.
You would need to ask Alex the details. I am unsure exactly what he did.
For me, the LG the right light always switches to red randomly in pre amp mode. The output Safety turned on. I tried it with all my amps. It always seemed to happen. It could happy for like 1hr or happen 3 times in 20 mins. I dont know what would cause it.
Alex said he has a mod for that and it should fix it. Now I havent had any problems with my power amps. I did it once for some reason but hasnt happen again in a few days. I am happy with my LG. Sounds great with my headphones and now I can roll tubes with my speakers too.
I have a question about the RCA coin base 6sn7. Does this count the 6SN7GTB? or if you have a link to a decently priced one :D
From the Cavalli Web page :
was this with the BL65 tube too? - this tube probably puts more strain on the plate power supply too. It shouldn't pull it out of regulation but if it does, the offset will trip .
Is that 6W in Class A or AB?
There are still a few more LG's left. Once they sell out, that's it. The LG made a splash at the Austin meet here last weekend - it's really gained some great exposure. If you are thinking about picking one up, I'd encourage you to act soon. Especially if you've got the tube-rollin' bug! We want to make sure our Head-fi guys are taken care of. It's a great deal for a really nice amp. And that black faceplate option looks so nice! See the site for more info.
I've been meaning to take some photos of my LG for a while now, but never quite had the chance. Pardon the crappy photos, but I didn't have time to properly set up the shot nor to post process.
Agreed, very excited to get my hands on my own. That thing looks like something straight out of The Bat Cave
