    Questions on OTL amp repair/tube safety

    Thanks. That's one of the points I'm having trouble with, if you can see in the pictures the terminals of the purple caps are out of reach & really close together. They're under what I think are bleed resistors. Am I overthinking this? If I'm exclusively working on the HP jack which can be...

    Questions on OTL amp repair/tube safety

    I recently took ownership of a La Figaro 332C amp with the understanding it has a problem involving the headphone jack. It's unknown exactly what the fault is but it is effected by wiggling the headphone cable in the socket. It's a known issue that the jack on these may need to be resoldered...

    Bright/Sparkly electronics for LCD2C-Closed?

    I guess it really does depend what else you have for comparison. They're not boosted like my Beyer or any of the Ultrasones I've owned, that's for sure. I'm of the same mind with picking up a tube amp & rolling, I've seen a number of new production tubes whose description fits my criteria...

    Bright/Sparkly electronics for LCD2C-Closed?

    Are you sure? It seems to have more treble than the Elegia & TH909s according to the graphs here. https://www.soundstagenetwork.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2001:audeze-lcd2-closed-back-headphones&catid=263&Itemid=203 It subjectively has more treble than the Hifiman Edition...

    Bright/Sparkly electronics for LCD2C-Closed?

    The Monoprice THX amps roll off the treble? Edit: If it clarifies what I'm looking for: I listen to a variety of synth/drone music. In amps which are too clean some of the high frequency synths can sound just like a simple sine wave being played whereas sparkly amps tend to have subtle...

    Bright/Sparkly electronics for LCD2C-Closed?

    I'm currently using onboard audio, a Schiit Asgard 3 running into a pair of Audezes LCD2C Closed and looking to switch my system in a different direction by adding in a DAC, replacing the amp, or buying a combo unit. Budget of $700. I have a long list of gear I've owned on my profile(My account...

    Are tube amps always "warm"?

    Stretched front to back might be a good descriptor, you could also refer to the tube effect as a halo. Listening to organs, accordions, vocals, or wind instruments I find it easy to picture the air moving as the instruments are being played; it makes these instruments sound much more real and...

    Are tube amps always "warm"?

    The answer is perhaps a bit more complicated than you expect because the term 'warm' tends to be heavily loaded(we don't all use it to describe the same traits.) If you are using warm to describe tonal balance the answer is no. Tubes are not always more mid focused. If you mean it in regard to...

    Sleep ready Bluetooth headphones

    I'm finding it frustratingly hard to find a good pair of BT headphones for sleeping in, I just want something smallish with a relaxed sound. Used to own AKG K81 for the greater part of a decade until they wore out and I got a phone without a HP jack. I've tried replacing the AKGs 5 times now and...
