the headphone you see on the picture above is my latest and by far best build where i tried to combine all the ideas and experience in one headphone combining resolution and detail of my first mods with that great bass extension and texture resulting out of a full wooden inner construction. it really sounds as i tried to describe above. i spent nearly two month only in fine tuning and optimizing the sound.

 

Geez GG... That's excellent...!

Now I'm wondering how actually your Grado sounds. Makes me excited.

Thanks Ian.

If you look at the pictures posted before, there is a slit provided on both sides at the position the tubes are glowing, but the tubes are (low) energy saving tubes, they are just hand warm.

I don't think heat is an issue with this amp, as GG states the tubes are low energy. The warmest I have felt them was after 4 hours of continual listening and then they were the temperature of tepid water, no more. I think the only thing i would consider as far as head with that lovely thick case would be where the position of the battery and transformers are but I do not think even that is a concern.

Last night I listened to the my latest download from HDTT (mentioned in a post a few back). It is an odd recording as though it is stereo Teresa Stitch-Randall's voice is fully in the left earpiece but the orchestra is in full stereo, it is a Sixties recording after all and I see even the classical records were want to play around with this new fangled Stereo!

But this is the interesting thing, in spite of that and because this amp throws a big soundstage it did not feel annoying as it can with a less capable amp. All one did was be absorbed into the performances. I think outside of multi thousand dollar widebander horn speakers this is the best I have heard a Soprano's voice, absolutely no trace of sibilance, just pure and sweet and detailed. It was so magical that I went right from that to Beethovens Mass in C, another recording from HDTT (I make no apologies for harping on about this company as their quality is exceptional and their recordings interesting and beautiful and a perfect match for this amp) which is transformational in its beauty I feel!
