    Headphones for metal music - ultimate solution

    The Meze 99 have very dirty bass. If you equalize I recommend the Sony MDR-1AM2.

    Lehmann Audio Linear

    Sorry, I corrected the post above in English. Yes, I knew about this update, but the sound signature of my old Linear is something amazing. With the V200 and the Linear I have two non-identical high-quality amplifiers.

    Lehmann Audio Linear

    I too was worried about the capacitors, but this amplifier has only been used for a few hours a year. I removed the cover and saw if the capacitors visually showed any deformation or swelling. Then I did several audio tests with the V200 (as a verifier) and 16 ohm Sony closed headphones...

    Lehmann Audio Linear

    I have attached the Pre-Gain settings diagram of the current Linear which is the same as the old model, like mine (they are identical).

    Lehmann Audio Linear

    I like all the headphones I currently have and the next one might be the HD660s2. With the gain switches at 0dB I drive the Sony MDR-1AM2 and Austrian Audio HI-X65 well. For the Avantone Planar I have to set the Gain to 10dB and for the HD650 18dB. I would say that for the HiFiMAN Arya...

    Ok (I'm following you).. then come back here when you do some listening tests with the HD660S2. 😉

    Sennheiser HD 660S2 thread

    I also bought my Lehmann Linear used (but it's like new). The person who had it before rarely used it with the HD800s.. he preferred listening from the speakers. Mine is the black cube version.The Loky will be a good match.

    Sennheiser HD 660S2 thread

    The V100/V200/V220/Linear(II) are characterized in the neutral zone and are faithful to returning a natural timbre (as you would hear without headphones). In this (neutral) zone a good amplifier can be characterized as more or less neutral. A few years ago I tried a Sabaj amplifier with good...

    Sennheiser HD 660S2 thread

    If one day you would like to have a nice amplifier with a neutral sound and a very good soundstage, you know that the Linear I have indicated can be an excellent alternative (similar quality to Violectric). I was right not to recommend the more expensive Lehmann ones, these have a neutral/warm...

    Sennheiser HD 660S2 thread

    Sorry, I didn't calculate the Canadian dollar. The Lehmann Linear drives the HD650s very well with the pre-gain selector at 10dB or 18dB. I also have the V200, I have done all the audio checks, so I can reassure you that the Linear will open the HD660S2 very well. The Linear and V200 have...

    Indeed $1,199.00 is a big gap. Do you have any other stores in Canada that sell Lehmann?

    Thomann sells the Linear new model for 859 Euros. The old version, the Lehmann Linear Black Cube, costs even less and is electrically identical to the new model (they are still found as the last pieces). Don't be put off by the simplicity of this amplifier.

    Look at the Lehmann Audio Linear, amplifiers that match very well with Sennheiser and beyond.👋

    Neumann NDH 30

    I completely agree with everything you wrote. I would also add the silver and gold fuses in the darkness of the self-convincing of the miraculous sound. In my Lehmann that I bought used, I found one of these wonders inside. I did all kinds of tests with my 16 ohm closed-back headphones and...

    Do you buy it or leave it in the showcase?

    Violectric V222 and V202

    If you like a perfect neutral tone and external gain switches, consider the Lehmann Linear. I have the V200 and Lehmann Linear they are two great amps with a slightly different tonality. I hope the V101 has a wider and deeper soundstage because here the G111 mkII falls apart for us audiophiles...

    Review: Violectric HPA V200 amp

    If you replace them it would be interesting to know how much the old capacitors measure. I don't know if you can measure them now that they are soldered onto the board. Equipment with old generation components (80s, better/worse)? After 20 years of work in metrology, the instrumentation that...

    Review: Violectric HPA V200 amp

    -Jamicon SK 1000uF 35V 85°C- After 2000 hours application of W.V. (Working Voltage), and +85°C ripple current value, the capacitor shall meet the following limits. (DC + ripple peak voltage <= rate working voltage). It seems like a warning (at 85 °C) rather than an aging of the electrical...

    Review: Violectric HPA V200 amp

    Thanks for the photo. Initial assessments can also be made visually. I would say your capacitors are perfectly cylindrical. The 120° slits are clearly visible and engraved (a nice groove). If the amplifier feels warm as usual, I would say lukewarm (you know it well I imagine), this is also an...

    Review: Violectric HPA V200 amp

    The life of capacitors is not limited as one might imagine, its longevity is linked to the maximum temperature reached during use. I have never tried to measure the temperatures of the capacitors inside the V200. When touched externally, the V200 does not heat up very much (maybe 40°C - 45°C)...
