OMG
Do I understand you correctly, you are using a pair of Esoteric Audio monoblocks to directly drive your AKG K1000 headphones, one amp per channel?

If this is your headphone set-up, what does your main system look like, heh heh

Good choice miziq, this is my setup also - a pair of Welborne Labs Laurel IIX 300B SET monoblocks driving K1000s. The preamp is either a stepped attenuator passive, or the Melos SHA-1 depending on what I'm trying out at the time.

I started out with Western Electric but now I am very happy with the TJ Mesh Plate tubes, and they're cheaper too.

It works pretty well!

I assume the Cyrus DAD player has a volume control since no preamp is listed in set-up................

Dark Angel...

jes that is headphone rig... ill post a main system in a while


im using the passive poti volume control, its done like this, ED monoblock got a choice to drive 300b via ecc 83 only(when using preamp) or if u use switch on the side it acts like build in preamp than u add the ecc88 and u use the poti (atteunatour) and u have like build in pream.

I got problems with cyrus dad1 cdplayer... those guys at shop it seem they used biggggggggg chinch connectors cos they destroyed cd outs... but those things happend even on arcams and meridians...

btw using ecc88 add a bit of a hum but not killing one (it acutaly almost act like 2x ecc83 = double gain).

hope this clears out missing link

btw dark angel.... if u interested where the amp come from www.hajdinjaklabs.com (im a friend and special dealer - studio owner , we are opening studio in few monts ) you can check some of the stuff u can see at my place... but i promise ill put some pictures on line when studiois finished..
