commenting on others work is easy.
I did. It is called the dynahi. Many people are building them now. A few
are finished. It was specifically designed for these headphones when i
first found out about them more than a year ago. It will put out
20 volts rms into 70 ohms which gives about 3db of headroom. It can output
5 watts of pure class A power into 70 ohms.
It has a thd of better than .002% at rated power.
DC to 100khz absolutely flat. -3db at 1mhz.
s/n of better than 100db.
Nope, specs are not everything. They are however a good place to start.
Mr. Gilmore and I can discuss this matter in a very mature way.
I just thought since he was speaking of a "colleague" maybe he could have been a little more subtle, that's all.(maybe he allready was kind of selling his new Dynahi amp in a way)
I will never discuss his abilities as a designer, i know he is a well respected and prominent headphone amp designer!
reading the specs, this new amp looks very promising.
but in the end, all that matters is how good the amps will sound with the qualia. whether it is a Rudi amp or a Mr. Gilmore amp.
Let's say i respect both for making amps and make enjoying music such fun.
