    Colorado Spring Meet - postponed

    Yeah, the last meet was a lot of fun. Count me in for attending this one too! Either March or April work, even May does if need be. The only date I'm currently not able to make in April is Saturday the 11th. Would be bringing my heavily modified Beyer 770 Pros as well as my modded HD650s and...

    Denver February 16 meet impressions

    I for one would like to see a summer meet happen if possible, probably best if we could "try" to work around everyone's summer schedules when doing so, as many tend to leave town or attend other events, etc. and it would be great if everyone who wants to attend is able to. Yeah, I'm actually...

    Denver February 16 meet impressions

    Thanks again to @arteom for planning and organizing, had a great time today listening to all the great gear and meeting great local folks that appreciate great sounding tunes! Many takeaways today, as always, but probably the biggest is just how cool and interesting everyone is, as in my...

    Elekit TU-8200 DX Headphone/Speaker Amp Review

    Not sure why I didn't remember the switch linked below, as I actually own one, but guess I'm not sure how important the remote is for your uses and the inputs/outputs, etc. Although my buddy is currently using mine to switch between recording devices, plus between headphones and speakers, when...

    Elekit TU-8200 DX Headphone/Speaker Amp Review

    Congrats on the build @ProfessorC1983! Yeah, while everyone will be different, I noticed my unit opening up and the bass getting better after about 30 hours or so. I also eventually went with the silver/gold caps and have really enjoyed them since; many others here have also enjoyed the...

    Elekit TU-8200 DX Headphone/Speaker Amp Review

    @Dimu, you are a true madman! Absolutely amazing what you have been able to do with your 8200(s) over the years... really a testament to the versatility of this little amplifier and what can be accomplished. If anyone is concerned about the 8200 not being able to get them where they want to be...

    Elekit TU-8200 DX Headphone/Speaker Amp Review

    Yeah, I wouldn't rule out the 8200, at least not right away. Different tubes can make a huge difference as well as output modes. It might have sounded too tubey and mellow to sunneebear because it may have been in Triode mode and thus Ultra-Linear mode may be a better match, as it tends to be...

    Winter 2019 Colorado Meet - February 16th

    Going to really try to make this one, should be able to, at least as of right now. I'll be bringing my custom woody HD650s and custom woody Beyer DT770s for sure and probably my Ultra-Fi DAC41 and upgraded Elekit 8200 amp along with them, with plenty of tubes for folks to try of course! I also...

    CanJam @ RMAF 2018 Impressions (Oct 5-7, 2018)

    Yup, I did try all 3, but I didn't spend a lot of time with them and only out of the headphones they had supplied at the table, which were top of the notch to say the least. Although I'm not positive on the model numbers/names, I preferred the big amp that was on the left of the table...

    CanJam @ RMAF 2018 Impressions (Oct 5-7, 2018)

    Yes, the Redscape Audio was very interesting and very cool indeed! I'm not surprised that there isn't much info yet, as I believe they indicated that it wasn't released as of yet, but would be very soon. They were thinking it would be around $200 or so for the software and the hardware, but...

    CanJam @ RMAF 2018 Impressions (Oct 5-7, 2018)

    and finally, part 3... jeez! ZMF Please Note: The new ZMF headphones below are not production/retail models, more of working models with prototype shells, and thus the wood, cups, and materials of the final versions will be different. I hope I got that right, but Zach let me know...

    CanJam @ RMAF 2018 Impressions (Oct 5-7, 2018)

    And for part two... ampsandsound MEZE Dekoni Audio Spoiler! Mackie Arrg! I think I took too many photos today! Anyway, look for a part 3 below as well...

    CanJam @ RMAF 2018 Impressions (Oct 5-7, 2018)

    Another great start to yet another great year at RMAF! Finally got a chance to load "some" of the pictures I took today and thought that in absence of my initial impressions, I'd share a little eye candy with you all first. These photos are in no particular order, just how I generally went...

    Elekit TU-8200 DX Headphone/Speaker Amp Review

    Not sure about the hum, as it could be a lot of different things, but it sounds like a ground hum from your description. So, you may want to try swapping out the tubes to see if it might be one of them causing any issues. You mentioned the extra set of KT-88s, but do you also have a different...

    Elekit TU-8200 DX Headphone/Speaker Amp Review

    @fide I wish I could help directly, however I haven't done the mods that @Dimu has to allow for those tube types. If you search this thread, you'll probably get a really good idea, or you could just send him a pm to find out more specifics. @ctrlm, very cool, congrats on the amp and welcome to...
