I never got a welcoming post. Hmpf.

 

I'd like to be critical, though. I have enough experience in amplifiers to say that the mini x isn't the last word in amplification, but it does pretty darn nice!

Please enlighten me on this very, very serious matter as long as it has nothing to do with stax. I will try to be a better person, I promise!

Beats and emotiva mini x.. Dat bass!! 11 o'clock all the way!
post #3111 of 3639
Awww wish I back home listening to my setup

Cant get past 9 o clock on the emotiva LOL, its powerfulllll

Just curious: ive accidently disconnected my source a few times while playing music before switching off amp, any potential damage to the headphones or amp? Can there be subtle damage or would it be really obvious sonically that theres damage? Hope my babies are in tip top condition

I doubt it could be damaging anything. Leaving headphones in while switching the amp on/off could potentially

Oh damnnnnnn
So turning off the amp first would damage your headphones ugh. So unplug then switch off? Got it lol
Surprised I dont know this basic info lol
Any potential damage? Or would it be really obvious if there was damage to the phones?

The Emotiva does have start up protection as it mutes the output for a short period. Good practice is to always reset your volume to zero before switching your amp on and off.

It's always a good idea to unplug the headphone before turning off the amp (especially when you are using speaker amps), but the least you should do is zero the volume.

Personally, I have disabled the auto standby, as it makes a loud tick in my heapdhone on turn on and a plop on power off. I am not comfortable with that, and therefore I also unplug before turn off/on, despite using the he-5le (which requires double the dough to play compared to HE-500).

I usually lower the knob to zero before I turn on and off. I do leave my headphones plugged in though

+1. I do have speaker tap adapters to which the HPs connect.

Right now I am wondering how it is that I haven't heard the background hiss until now. It is quite substantial, and I am wondering whether it was even there in the beginning. Hiss, even with the HE-5le.. 

Actually, I don't think it could've been there from the beginning.

 

This makes me quite sad.

 

EDIT: It seems my hearing is much more sensitive today, the volume control sits much lower.. Wth is happening to my hearing, lol?? I don't even cross 9 o'clock on my x-can.

Sick, thanks

So turning down the knob to zero is my routine from now on


Just reiterating, any damage to headphone would be very noticeable sonically right?
