    Bravo Audio - funny looking little tube amps

      re 2): I've listened to Grado SR-80's on mine, and it sounds okay, but not as controlled as my DT-770's (300 ohm). The gain of the Bravo is a bit much for the lower impedance cans.   re 3): I didn't see the post that said 600 ohm cans are too much, but I would be surprised if that didn't...

    So this is what happens, when I don't log in for a while... they move the convention Well. So. I guess I can't complain, given my spotty record at showing up to these things. But I must say, it would be nice to see everything (and everyone) all in one room...   I have to say, I have spent...

    CanJam SoCal 2015 Impressions Thread

      I gotta take one post for a shout-out: Thank you Tyll for your many informative reviews and interviews. I got to see you in action interviewing someone at CanJam, and I listened to you moderate the Planar headphone presentation (which I think benefited greatly from your moderation). I almost...

    Bill-P's Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro modding diary (including sibilance elimination)

    I was one of those who got to hear Bill's mods at CanJam. I can attest to the fact that this does indeed make this headphone less strident and smoother sounding.   (When I walked into the Member area, Bill said "Finally, someone wearing DT770's" lol).   I own the 250 ohm version, so I don't...

    Bravo Audio - funny looking little tube amps

      Sorry bro, was offline for a few weeks.   12AU7 and 12AU7A is basically the same tube. You will not hear a difference. I think the "A" model is just something that came out later.   ECC82 is the European marking for a 12AU7. That's all.   As for the others: there are numerous similar...

    CanJam SoCal 2015 Impressions Thread

      I noticed this several times as well. I frequently found myself sitting next to someone with open back cans, and was really shocked at how loud they sounded, just sitting next to me. It didn't bother me (my cans are closed lol), it just impressed me with the volume level.   I do have a pair...
