OK Budget system UPDATE! Tried same rig with a Drop/THX AAA ONE-- subbed it in after my JDS Labs 02s and Atom amp trials-- this time I tried it with the Planar Mob-- 2020 Ananda; Sundara 2021 with new Dekoni hybrid pads, and the 2021 Audeze LCD-X Since the THX AAA One are now popping up on Ebay for $125-$150 range I decided to hear if the claims of sterility etc were valid-- plus if they're as analytical as some claim that should be borne out too. I decided to stick with the Warner Remaster of Dire Straits since it has distinct bass, guitars, acoustic guitars low in the mix etc. This amp at these prices is still what you'd call a 'budget' amp-- the whole system runs $350ish. The Cambridge Audio DACs are still on Ebay for $139...OK well gotta say it was fun hearing all these headphones through this amp-- no surprise, the Ananda was the easiest to drive and really brought out the acoustic guitars and low-level background vocals; the Sundara was the power pig of the lot but...
I believe MASSDROP X ALEX CAVALLI TUBE HYBRID AMP was nice step for Drop and tube amps. I wish drop would make another tube amp not just bring back drop cth back. The reason is cth back single tube is not enough as well not enough output and input selection. The next Drop hybrid tube amp should 2-4 tubes and have both rca inputs and balanced xlr inputs as well as rca and balance outputs. Lastly the this Drop hybrid tube amp should have pre rca and balanced xlr outputs. An amp designed like this work nicely with amps/dacs you offer as well leave plenty of Drop dac/amp stack combinations. Thanks again Drop I hope next year we will get more Drop exclusive amp/dac offerings.
Order shipment problem that nobody it caring my support request at Drop
I ordered a headphone 4 weeks ago. Shipment is waiting at Germany to be send to Turkey for 3 weeks. I'm sending customer request forms for help from Drop but it looks like nobody is checking it or not caring, getting no response from Drop. Any idea to get their customer support's attention?
I know it's a dumb question because I know a 3.5mm to a 4.4mm connection takes more hardware than a simple jack to transfer a balanced signal, but has any "balanced" nut out there found a real adapter that actually makes this work?
I just got a pair of the Sennheiser HD-6XX and have been listening for a few days. The headphones seem very out of balance - most of the sound seems to be coming from the right cup. I did a reality check and switched the wire so the right terminal was in the left cup and vice versa, and the weight of the music was still on the right side. Then I did a reality check with my travel headphones (Bose Quiet Comfort 35s - don't judge - if you've ever been near a screaming child on an airplane you know how crucial a pair of these are) and did NOT notice the same phenomenon. Anyone else have this issue? Did I just get a bum pair?
