    O2 AMP + ODAC

      Buy something called a solder sucker, or solder wick (goat wick) And make sure to let the IC cool down between attempts. I'm not sure how long you tried but if I recal correctly overly heating the IC's can damadge them.

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    I have a question regarding low volume listening. I almost Always listen at low volums with my x2's. ATM I'm listening to the lowest possible volume possible without channel imbalance at 1x gain.   Is it possible to set the gain at e.g. 0.5x? Or would it be a better alternative to buy another...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    What? Sibilance? I'm very sensitive to sibilance. The X2's are not sibilant to me at all, in fact they have a nice dip in the fqr that suits my sensitive ears well. And I have owned two X2's both sibilance free

    Well since I received no reply from bottlehead whatsoever  I started looking around again for the manual.   If anyone else lost their manual and can't find it online I have found a torrent for the files including speedball...

    Hi,   I have lost my crack+speedball manual. Could you guys send one to me. You can PM. It would be a great help!   Oh and for those who are interested. It doesn't work perfectly with the X2 unless you don't care about the bass being a bit loose. The rest of the sound is great! X1 seems to...

    Stax Lambda Nova Classic

    Hello there,   What would be a good price for this headphone and is it worth getting? I'm asking because I see a pretty cheap one for sale nearby. It's ad price is 140 euro. (around 180 dollars or sumthing) I can probably get some off the price. BUT it comes as is. He couldn't test it and I...

    FiiO's New PCOCC-A Cables - Impressions, Reviews, Discussion

    I am terribly sorry to inform that my review will have to wait for a while. I have my ears to worry about and can't let my ears be exposed to sound for a long time. I had some tinnitus for a few months which resolved 3 months back or something, but it recently got back since I got a new...

    Well I wasn't talkig about the 6SN7's actually. I have some PCC189's and 6H23N rocket logos laying here and hoped they might fit.   It's true that someone from Bottlehead is active here right? Is a faulty tube covered by warranty? Or should I go on ebay and buy another one.   Atleast i'm...

    Crack;Bottlehead OTL

    Hmm Those are pretty ugly. I like the nice glowing in the dark.     And placing doesn't really matter since it happens anywhere on my desk. It's next to my laptop but that's on LAN and the wifi comes from my bed 2 meters away. The router is much further away. I don't even live in a busy place...

    Crack;Bottlehead OTL

    I think I have a bad tube. When I touch the amp or tap the desk it's on I hear it in the left channel. When I rub my finger across the metal plate it even sounds trough the tube. Tapping the tube is, ofcourse, audible and quitte loud really. This is mostly in the left channel.   This isn't...

    The ultimate feast---Review qualification recruitment for newest PCOCC-A headphone cables

    I'd like to review RC-MH1 with my Philips fidelio X1. It is said that the weakest point of the headphone is it's cable. This should be a great test. I can compare it to a simple and cheap cable. I have a multimeter to check for resistance too.   My other headphones are Sennheiser hd650...

    Crack;Bottlehead OTL

    I'm saying it should be around 50%. 9 o clock for me is just too much. It's very loud and makes my ears ring. I think my ears are just very sensitive since I have this with every amp. Now I'm at 7:30 ish. Starting position is 7 o clock. 8 o clock is getting louder. 9 o clock is hardest I go but...

    Crack;Bottlehead OTL

    Is there anyway to lower the gain on this amp? It's hard to set it at low levels without volume imbalance.   I really wonder why they make all amps so extremely powerfull. I also have an O2 with the lowest gain possible and it doesn't get past 15%. I have a feeling that it's best that average...

    Quote:   Thank you!   Unfortunately I don't know. I have seen another kind too. I don't think they are too agressive since both didn't attack the camera.

    Hey there, I've been to vacation in Italy and I made some nice shots. I don't think it will impress most of you since it was taken with a cheap camera but the macro shots are very good. I love macro.   Does anyone have anything to say or some tips? I have made many more photo's but I don't...

    [New] Philips Fidelio X1

    Well, I have no clue but isn't it always legit via amazon? I'm not familiar with it since we don't have it here in holland.    If I were you i'd first check the german one since it's even cheaper.
