The HeadAmp GS-X and GS-X MK2 Thread - Page 79

post #1171 of 3768

Well, I hope not.  The GSX is my first SS amp and one of the reasons I went that was was to skip the warm up (and not worry about tubes going bad).

After three hours of warm up, the SQ was and is very good, but it's that when first turned on. I've only tried once listening to the GS-X when it's been on power for over three hours, so I'll have to do it a few times then get back with my thoughts.

audio memory is a tricky thing and my ears aren't as golden as some people here... but as best I can tell, there is basically no difference between when my GS-Xmk2 was just turned on, has been on 3 hours, or has been on 24 hours.

SS vs. Tube, so I'm not surprised really. smile.gif

Cold ones don't warm my hands in the winter :P

post #1176 of 3768

One of the reasons why I got the GS-X, was because I read somewhere it doesn't need warm up to sound it's best, and like I said, I'm not sure if there was an improvement in SQ after it'd been on for above three hours, but it sounds wonderful from cold.

Unless the rack is the same ground potential as the amps ground/chassis it could actually be a source RF.

Yup.  Sounds the same for me, from the 1st hour until I forget how long I've been listening..biggrin.gif

While I do not yet have the GSX and thus cannot comment on warmup, my F3 (which coincidentally is also a JFET amp) sounds a bit better if I leave it for an hour before I engage with music. So  overall, some SS gear does benefit from warmup. I am curious about the GSX thou.

First Watt amps does.  GS-X mk2, not so much.  IMOwink_face.gif

Does anyone know the shipping weight/dimensions of the GS-X from Justin?  Edit- Got it, thanks Justin!
