Does Tomahawk work on UE11

I borrowed one Toma from my freind today. When I tried it with my ue11 at low gain I felt it gave me less than what I want and too much for the high gain. Little bite worried about the new Toma I bought, which is still one the way from US to AU. Will I sell it the day after I get it?

I doubt you will,you'll find it works quite well on those types of IEM's.

I believe Ray used the UE10's when tuning the Tomahawk before it was introduced to the peeps on Head-Fi

With gain on low,and you dialing around the volume pot,I'm sure
you'll find a very happy medium.

Your source could be putting out too low of a signal instead, so you get less volume on low gain than expected.

Also, the Tomahawk (and RSA amps in general) needs 400-600 hours to burn in, so if the one you have is low hours you may get less bass from it than expected.

Probably but depending on the capacitor size and circuit design it would be much much less. Maybe only 50-100 hours. The Tomahawk and the Hornet both have very large 15,000µf capacitors.
