I got my Zigis yesterday. Very quick delivery. I was a bit shocked at the size of the case, but obviously it is all in there so..... Initial impressions are there is a lot of gain so not going to be wanting for sound level. Will keep it running over the next week and then give a proper review.
Can anyone tell me what difference the output impedance of the amplifier makes with regard to sound reproduction of headphones? For example, my Mackie 402VLZ4 mixing console has a headphones output impedance of 60 ohms, whilst my AKG K702 headphones have a stated impedance of 62 ohms, although the DC resistance measures 57 ohms. Can this be considered a good match?
I also have an inexpensive Behringer HA400 four-output headphone amplifier, which is fed directly from the computer's sound-card, with an output impedance of (according to the spec.) 80 ohms, yet it sounds perceivably no different to the Mackie unit.
The difference between 60 and 80 Ohms is negligible. Most amplifiers are low Ohmic.
AKG headphones in general sound good from a higher output resistance. Not all headphones change tonal balance with different output impedances. Some react a lot (bass becomes too much or bloated) and some don't react at all. Depends on the impedance plot of the headphone.
use your EARS to enjoy MUSIC .... NOT as an analyzer
Welcome. Quick messages/chats but this area is emptied from time to time so nothing permanent here!!
doug48: How can I download the pdf's for the Foobar 2000 instructions?

solderdude: I don't know if there are pdf's for it... will ask Javier.

Javier: Unfortunately I don't have a PDF and Wordpress doesn't have a way to export to any format.

Javier: The only way to store the page locally is by saving it as HTML

doug48: I found a way to print the foobar docs by going to each html site and right click and select all. the open Word processer and past the selected txt and graphics. Save and go back and edit out the extra info.
