I think the Prautes is anything but portable :wink:… that price though, I hope they're worth the $3900 they cost

Help!!!! So I just hooked up my Duet to my AK-240, in balanced mode, only getting sound from the right channel. When I switch over to single ended, I get both left& right working. I switched my HD-800 cable to Balanced, to run out of the AK-240 on it's own, both left & right work. Any ideas??
post #199 of 260
I'd guess when SE mode you're hearing kinda mono? i.e. the one channel of the music track is coming out of both left & right channel of the headphones?
post #200 of 260
Yup. But when running balanced, only the right channel is working. Think maybe I blew something?

I'm more inclined to think that your balanced cable is improperly wired. Is this the first time you've tried using the balanced cable too? It's a 2.5mm TRRS -> Kobinconn (RSA)?

Yuppers,2.5mm got all my connects from Drew. He's not real likely to screw something up. Plush I've had them for a few months, and they've worked in the past.

I'll be at Headphonium 2014 today, I'll bring along the Duet, maybe someone there can come up with some more ideas. Thanks for the help AnakChan

OH THAT oops, my bad. I didn't notice it at first in the thread. I do remember Cypher Labs asking on their Facebook page if people would like a smaller Duet for easier to drive headphones/IEMs and greater portability. I wonder if it's this

Now announced:

http://www.cypherlabs.com/products/algorhythm-picollo/

 

Looks like 3.5mm out only so Duet still has a role.

If that is right then there appears to be a slight mistake in the comparison table on the CL site as it says Picollo has balanced headphone out.

I had my finger on the purchase button for the Duet, but - at the last moment switched to the Vorzuge Duo, am wondering if it is still worth pursuing the Duet...

What do you guys think re law of diminishing returns etc., considering there is zero chance of a demo of the Duet?

LOVE (capitalised for effect) the Duo with the IE800s, but that little niggling part of my brain that held my finger away from buying is now wanting me to do the opposite lol.

Aren't you still on your Vorzuge honeymoon?!

I'm in the same boat as you. As I mentioned in the X5 thread I'm very interested in the Duet, but can't demo one.

Definitely am smily_headphones1.gif

Like I say though, my finger was hovering over the purchase button, and - am still tempted, so hoping the consensus will be that the Duet isn't worth the expense if having the Duo ;o)

Didn't Lieven and Mike at Headfonia like the Duet for the bass? If you're divorcing the e12 because of a mid bass hump then I wonder how the Duet would be in comparison.
