I own a Creek OBH-11. I hate it more and more every time I bother with it. Here is the problem... today I purchased a Marantz CD5004, and a pair of beyerdynamic DT990 pro. I've hooked it up to my terrible little creek and i have found that I still can't get the volume dial past 9 O'clock without it being far too loud. Now the impedance of my Beyers is 250ohms, so why the hell can't I do more with the volume dial on the Creaky? the amp just seems too powerful.
I was under the impression that the higher the impedance of cans, the higher you could have the volume dial?
Is the Creak broken?
I am using the interconnects that were in the Marantz box so obviously not ideal, but I doubt that would have any bearing on volume.
I've got my first set up almost complete, the Creak is the weak link. Is the OBH 11 just too loud?
Any advice would be appreciated, every time I start a thread on this website, it's tumbleweed central, lol.
PS. From the Creaky manual "You are now the owner of a state of the art piece of equipment" or words to that effect... lmao.
PPS. The manual says the Creaky "can be connected to any medium output CD player"... what the hell does that even mean? What's a medium output CD player?
