I don't like to speculate so we have to see the phone to be sure what's going on.  PM me and we'll fix it right up for you.

Can you send me your test tuning bass tones? I want to be sure it is rattling rather than shipping from Canada and back to find out that everything is fine. I think it may be the test.

I tried the Bass Shaker test and kind of dissapointed. I heard a buzzing and rattling. When I tried my brothers DT 770s, they had nothing like that and they are valued at lot less than the ADs.

I just tried the same Bass Shaker test to try it out for myself. I have no rattling of any sort just the bass sounding fine. You better send in your headphones to check with Dan. There's definitely something wrong because I had no problem at all

I think the headphone problem is solved. If anything else comes up he did tell me his contact info and is very nice.

 

MrSpeakers has great customer service

I thought the headphones had a rattle when testing the bass but it doesn't.

Hello folks,

 

I will soon receive my Alpha Dog headphones and I am very excited!

 

How well does the Burson Conductor SL 1793 pair with these phones? Although outside my budget, I might be able to grab this amp for a steal!

 

Also, what else do you guys recommend?

 

At the moment I am using a Audioquest Dragonfly DAC paired with a Shiit Magni for the T50RP that I modded myself.

 

Thanks in advance:D

Well, I'd have to suggest the lyr/lyr2. It's really tough to beat the pairing and price. There are some very good deals on the original lyr here now and the lyr2 is a nice upgrade. 

 

Dan even made some nice positive comments on the pairing. 

 

Good luck and welcome to HF!! :D

Someone is selling thier original Asgard 1 for a trade of a Vali + money. Do you guys think this is a good trade? Not sure not much money probably like $40.

I've never been a big fan of tubes and their "warm" sound. In my past experience with tubes I did not like them, except with really old recordings or live concerts.

 

But of course, if tubes do really well with these phones I might give it another try since generalizing all tube amps seems silly.

 

Knowing this information about me, would you still recommend the Lyr 2?

 

Thanks BTW! I've been a long time lurker here, about time I start posting. :D

 

 

I'm still curious whether the Conductor 1793 goes well with the Alpha dogs. Anyone tried this pairing?

The AD loves power. The pair with the original lyr was quite good. The lyr2 is supposed to sound better, so it should be an improvement for sure. Neither of these amps is technically a tube amp, but rather a hybrid. 

 

Sorry but I have not heard the Burson. Jaywillin has had one. You might ask him.

All tube amps do not sound the same. All tubes do not sound the same. The LYR is receptive to tube rolling and you can achieve a multitude of sounds based on the tube.

I can't comment on the conductor, but I do have a Soloist- and it is one of the finest pairings I've ever heard.
