Don't forget to upgrade your air conditioner and get a fire extinguisher.

Don't forget to turn off the A2 when using the Lyr. That A2 get's pretty warm.

I see that someone's ready for the high tide or a tsunami.

It's very likely going to get more time than the Lyr simply because I don't want to burn tubes on my external monitors.

If you're concerned, get some load resistors.

You can get resistors of the same value as the headphone's impedance and with the right wires connect them to the amp instead of the headphones. And now you can run the amp without making noise or tying up your headphones.

This is something that fits between the headphones and amp? The benefit is what? Sorry, I'm just not digesting that properly.

Yep, Ive made several to emulate cans of different impedance. Nice tool to have around for various reasons.

That looks awfully familiar. I remember having to find huge 8 Ohm resistors to load guitar amps with, for testing without bringing the house down or shattering windows.

Ahh. Gotcha gotcha. You throw them in when running monitors off of your preamps. You can't just unplug your cans?

You think that you're the only person in need of a dummy load that owns a soldering iron? ;)

I was asking since I have posted that pic in a few places and thought maybe you had seen it elsewhere.

That's funny, I thought you meant if I ever saw a dummy load before. I've used ones for RF transmitters that are in a can of oil.
