The T-1s are a completely different can from anything Jan has tuned for in the past (which is why he thinks it will be fun), starting with 600-ohm resistance combined with 102-dB output at 1mW. They are terminated in a TRS jack, though reportedly use 4 wires.
I'm guessing Jan would have to do about as much tweaking to Flysweep's box as mine, and I already own/paid for mine and will never use it for anything else (remember, it's the box that lost the competition to the one with concrete resistors)... plus I hate selling stuff, so it is just going to sit here taking up space. This is a perfect use for it: most of the cost is sunk (the box and the binding posts can be reused), and any resistors he would add would be cheap. In return for whatever it cost me I might salvage enjoyable sound out of an expensive pair of cans that it appears I would otherwise be stuck with and never use. I honestly don't care what he does inside that box, whether he keeps any of the Mills resistors or not, or whether he just fills it with sand or marbles or air. In the end, it's whatever works, man.
