For anyone who thought they were on the list and didn't get a note, you might check your spam folder and/or inbox, the subject is "Your turn for a Mad Dog to Alpha Dog upgrade."

 

It appears my sign-up from May 26th slipped through your system somehow (I checked my spam folder every day) so I signed up again a week ago. Are you still working through the wait list or are we just waiting for "open season"? I don't think I've ever worked this hard to pay someone! :p

It'll be open season starting this week, I just have to update the website.  I'll post when that is done...

 

Sorry about that!

Went to my audio dealer this friday to pick up the Alpha Dogs I had ordered. I also decided to get a better amp and DAC along with the new phones. I had a pretty long session comparing the Lyr2/Bifrost, Asgard 2/Bifrost, Lehmann Audio Black Cube Linear USB, Burson Conductor SL1793 and the Burson Conductor SL9018. For the comparison I listened some Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, Meshuggah, Gojira, Beatles, Ghustav Holst and Sjostakovitsj.

I decided that I liked the SL1793 the most because it has a bit more warmer sound than the other SS amps, but not as warm as the Lyr2. Also, the fact that I was able to get it considerably cheaper than the other aforementioned combos made me pull the trigger. It was a tough call as everything sounded great. thumb.gif 

 

I want to post a picture of my setup, but I am unable to do so because my account does not have the necessary permissions to post images it seems. Anyone knows how to solve this?

 

 

Cheers :beerchug:

My thanks to Ableza and MrSpeakers! I will be ordering Alpha Dogs Tuesday!!! I am ready to step up from my 650's, sonic impressions to come. Now if I can only fix my JRiver 19, I had to restore and none of my 1000's of files will play, stating, "the file could not be found, file name does not match"!!!!😡

Anybody using AD with Little Dot MK 3? Any tube recommendation for me? I am currently using 6J1P-EV 6N6P-i tubes.

So, I want to start playing with the bass port. But before I do so, I just want to verify this...

 

The sticker in the box mentions that the right side is 5 turns and left side is 3 turns. Does that mean if I fully close the vent, and I do 5 turns on the right and 3 turns on the left, the headphones will be back at factory settings?

What I'd suggest is only doing half turns at a time in any direction, and if you happen to leave it in a position - to write down exactly how many turns you made. Turning the screw fully shut can damage the internal part of the cup where the port is - likewise fully turning it out can stuff up the cups as well.

 

I only notice it to be a minor difference with my AD, so I don't usually use the screw.

I was just curious from which point the 3/5 count was made so I can always accurately recreate factory settings.

Yes. With 5 turns there probably isn't much range left though.

Has anyone tried the russian 6n23p tubes? I'm thinking about buying a pair from rb2013 and wanted to know if anyone has opinions on them

post #7557 of 7679

If they're not the "Rocket Logo" Voskhod 6N23Ps then I wouldn't buy them.
