Not trying to take away any focus from the people having issues nor to gloat but certainly there have to be some people out there on this drop like me who have yet to experience any problems and are so far happy with their purchase... haven't had any issues (knock on wood) everything is the way it should and sounds great out of the box.... looking forward to getting more time with it and some burn in see if it can sound any better... What DACs are you guys using? so far im just using my Aune X1s and it sounds pretty good (only been able to test on my beyer DT990 600 ohm and AKG K7xx...both of which sound great but the DT990's sound AWESOME) but im looking into saving up a bit to get something in the lines of an Audio-gd NFB-1DAC, audio-gd DAC-19 (really leaning towards trying out an r2r while they are still being made) or perhaps a schiit bifrost MB. There were just so many stories so far about the problems unfortunately being had i thought it might good to hear from some people who have had positive experiences with this drop. I hope you guys with issues get them worked out in a timely fashion.
Since I got the input/output issue sorted, mine is sounding pretty good. Listening to my Beyer DT 1350s. Also have a Garage1217 Ember 2 to compare it to. Course the Ember is a hybrid, but a very nice sounding one. Has a 6SN7 in it now. BTW I read someone mention not being able to get the driver tubes out because of the guards. You can just remove the 2 black phillips screws on the gold baseplate & lift the whole thing off for easy access & cleaning. Cheers, kev
Thanks, I was going to dismantle the guards. This is not documented in the user guide.
Coming up on six days of burn in. Started sounding great at about a hundred hours. Swapping in phones with different impedances from 50 to 600 Ohms. Haven't tried any really low impedance ones. Sounds great with my ortho's and the K7XX.
Which gain do you use to drive your Beyer DT900 600 ohm and does it give enough volume?
5 or 10 but try them all and use the one that sounds best for you.
I have 600 Ohm cans and it sounds great with the lowest setting and has plenty of volume. I had to up the gain on setting on the Little Dot MK III.
I've been using 10 with my dt990 600 and sounds great
