Cool, your amp actually has the blue LED inside as opposed to my amber one. Nice contrast with the glowing tubes.

wow, av98m

what sort of mods did you do to the DT880? i thought its single-sided cable.

& how come there are 2 XLRs out from the amp?




Mod edit: Try to refrain from making discussion on this thread as its meant to be a showcase of our members' systems. The entire adventure of av98m cans and amp was discussed in an earlier thread. Please do a search for it. Include av98m as contributor to narrow the search.

The dog is as mandatory for improved sonics as putting a Pavane stone or putting blu-tak on a crystal that looks like a blue box cap. Enjoy!
