Hello GG thank you very much for the explanation of input attenuator and the link. Really appreciate it. And I am speechless with your tu05 modyfing effort.. You are really a rocket scientist in this..
Talking about high end speaker set up, couple days ago I was invited by my friend listening his home system set up. He is been using wilson audio wamm speakers with his dedicated audio room. And wow it was an amazing experience. He is using a vinyl recording as the source. We listened to many records, but there are some records that really stay in memory, Monty Alexander trio live classic recording, Ingram Washington, Hotel California live performance and Pink Floyd album.
The vocal so thick end very well textured, every instrument are very deep, well textured, very high resolution as well. No detail is loss and perfect staging from the his dedicated room.. Everything are like new experience for me.
So how my portable tur06 compare to his home set up? It actually holds up quite well.
For 1/100+ price ratio I think it is very good bargain for money. I think what it lack is the vinyl source as for the resolution and the wide stage of home speakers. To get home speakers kind of detail sound I have to turn the volume up and that is not good for the ears..
This is my best set up so far..
In term of resolution marshall 50fx is behind the ath11, but it gives thicker vocal, and wider stage with much better Visceral Impact, Rhythm and Pace. I can bump up the volume more without piercing my ears. It really does sound very good to my ears. Give me the experience of listening to the home speaker set up. It is loud and rocking..
Happy Sunday! Cheers!
Updated impression: after more time spend listening, my current best headphone setup back to the ath esw11 ltd.. the flirty vocal is really hard to let go.. I have also tried with earsonic sm64, It also makes a great pair. overall sm64 provides more refine sounding. But somehow it is missing something.. not as lively as when i listening to my esw11. I guess I have not find the perfect match headphone for my tur06.. tonight i am going to local jaben, hoping able to compare with other amp and audition some new headphones with the tur06..
