All the tubes that go with the Raptor amp use the very same footprint ...

And lucky (perhaps UNlucky?) for me ... a certain head-fi bro of mine was gracious enough to send me about 20 tubes to demo with my new amp.

And I had them all spread out on the desk and all ... switching this one for that, and that one for this ...

And somewhere in there ... I accidentally stuck a gain tube into the driver socket and (POOF!) ... burn't the hell out of the power supply. LOL!

Only took about 15 to 20 seconds before I knew (smelled) what was happening and then powered down ... but apparently that was enough to melt some rubber:

...



...

Anyway.

Even thought the amp still sounded fine and all ... I still felt it best to send back for inspection by Ray ...

Can't wait to get it back, though. Neither the GS-1 or the Stello HP100 has the same organic and lovely soundstage that the Raptor has ...

I'm looking into buying the Sennheiser 555's.
can anyone comment on the quality of the logitech z-2300's as a headphone amp. before my last pair of high end cans got chewed up I was using my A/V receiver, but that is now across the room. Is it worth getting a new headphone amp or rearranging things so I can use my receiver again?
The z2300 sounds okay on my $15 temp headphones but the receiver sounded great with a $150 set, so I can't really compare
google didn't shed any light, thanks

It has a headphone output but that doesn't really do good for 555s

most people who have tried plugging headphones into Logitech speakers report worse sound quality than plugging into the sound card
