I do agree, the any quality issues in the source material will result in adjusting the EQ so the AD are useable and since my material is bit dodgy i have use 2xDT or is it my ears

Does anybody use a Chord Hugo with their Alpha Dog?

It could be your pair has a bit less bass out-of-the-box than mine, though what I hear on mine isn't too far off the tour pair I tested a while back, and Tyll's measurements indicate the AD should have at least a subtle bass boost. Unless your pair already has the vents mostly opened, you probably have room to increase the bass. This may also affect treble to your liking.

 

As long as you are EQing treble down on the AD, it should have no ill effect and might not even be worth further looking into the felt pads. They do, after all, mostly just bump down the treble response in a fairly even fashion.

Thanks. Do you use Vali to drive AD?

Vali work OK with the AD, though I think it can sometimes make orthos sound ever so slightly thinner than they should (dunno why). I prefer the AD from my vintage Sansui 5000A.

Love the way the Sansui 5000 A looks takes me back to my youth

So come on Dan! ;)

I think that this is very interesting, but in a different thread.  Seems like finding a driver that is an improvement over the T50RP driver is the most important part of the equation, as the 3D printing for the cup appears to give Dan a lot of flexibility in the cup design.

post #7883 of 7883

the question is what is the basic sound signature required from a different diver type and what tuning would we want from Dan

so do we want better more defined sound stage and do we want more detailed mids and highs or more forgiving with poor source files. I suppose the question is what is missing from the AD ? what would make them more much better ?
