I don't think so. In the end, it is converting the power to the same output requirement for the device(s). If there is a difference, it's most likely VERY minimal. I mean, you might have more difference in the stability of the components themselves and the consistency of the voltage regulation is with them. Think of a power supply for PCs, and the reviews talking about the 12v rails, etc.... they're always checking for spikes and peaks with how well it conditions/handles the power.
I'm talking out of my butt, but I've thought about it a lot and looked into it.

In the U.S. and Japan, they use 100v/110v/120v at 60Hz. Most of the rest of the world is 220v/230v/240v at 50Hz.

Yeah! Makes sense.
It just made me wonder as a lot of top HT's in the US puts in 220V.
Especially for power amps.

True.
In the U.S., there are still one or two 240v outlets for huge home appliances. One in the laundry room/area for the washer and/or dryer, and one in the kitchen for the oven/stove.

Does this look okay guys?

I wanted to separate my turntable from my head gear. I always thought the TT was too dominating on the top shelf.

TT has been shifted by itself on a smaller unit.

Very nice, looks better that way to me!

I finally got my M1060 put back together...doesn't quite look stock though... LOL



Stock one for reference:


Still lots of work to do with it, but at least I know it fits well and is more comfortable than stock, much better range of fit too with a 12mm extension of the band via lengthening the band to cup tab mounting. The gap between the two support pieces joining the band to the cups will be gotten rid of, the depth of cutout for the band and cup tab ends needs to be enlarged. Once fixed, the two pieces will be glued together to form a single part...so the tabs will just slip in and then be fastened with the M4 screws.

Once I get everything finalized it will be printed with black and carbon-fiber composite filament. Not sure on the grilles though, I do like the copper colored ones and that would go good with black/carbon fiber parts... they will either be carbonfiber or copper colored.

And then I'll be tearing it down again because designing cups with detachable earpad mounting system... LOL Will need to get a second used M1060 before that though as a reference.

No, it looks terrible.
Wait, hold on while I wipe the drool from my chin.

OK, I thought about it... it looks great. Like it usually does.

Yours looks way better than the original and I think it's a nice looking HP. Very HiFIMan looking. I have a HE400i that I gave to my son that looks similar.
Honey comb grill looks better and less busy. Classy.
Wood and copper is going to look great. Not sure about the colour. Maybe it's the photo. Can you spray paint the grills? I think paint would sharpen it up. I'm looking at the 3D printed grills on the Hawk and Aeon and they are both painted.

Thanks for the comments guys. TT was bothering me when using headgear. It was getting in the way. Then I clicked that the TT could fit on the other unit.
I wasn't sure on separating audio equipment off the main rack yesterday however now I'm sold on it.

The grilles I currently have on it are a special woodfill PLA based filament, and were an absolute pain to 3D print and clean up.

Comparison of the special woodfill PLA and normal PLA, as printed:



Will probably print out the copper color grilles this evening to see how it goes overall with the headphone, even though the current prototype pieces are silver on it. This is the color of the copper PLA filament:


The parts actually prints semi translucent - which gives them a nice look and play with lighting for thin part areas. I do think for any standard filament, some kind of additional preparation will need to be done for finishing the parts other than the grille. May leave the carbonfiber composite filament in raw state though... will have to see how it works out.

Regarding separating the turntable, it both makes sense and looks nice as it has its place. And it looks like you have the vinyl stored underneath too...which would make the experience nice....select your album and place it on the table from a single unit. One cohesive station for LP... other than I guess getting the entire necessary system chain up for it.

The copper material looks fab, actually looking closely I like the normal material gun metal colour as well. Translucent effect gives the whole thing a special custom effect as well. You are doing a fantastic job.
I wish I had a week off to play in your room. Pull some of my gear apart as well.

The cabinet under the TT is holding spare tubes for my WA22. Separated in three drawers. Rectifiers, drive and power tubes. I don't know how many tubes I have. My guess is a few hundred. I also have heaps stored in the loft above our garage. The ones in the drawers are my special precious ones.
Vinyl is on the magazine rack and wall to the right of the TT. You are right, the TT right next to the vinyl makes the experience more fluid.

Well, I've done it now...just ordered something that will bridge one of my HT system components with my headphone system..... the Mjolnir Audio STAX SRD-7 Transformer box.




Will let me use the NAD C275BEE stereo amp to drive the Koss ESP950 and STAX SR-L300 Limited Edition headphones, and the Gustard X20U DAC will be able to control volume. I already know the C275BEE and Gustard X20U are an awesome combo together from playing music through my mains with the combo - hard hitting ad very resolving, yet also smooth and well extending with beautiful finesse and lovely dynamics. Looking forward to comparing against the STAX SRM-323S Driver unit.

Interesting product. So it uses power from another amp.

Electrostatics require heaps of power right?

Not necessarily heaps of power in a normal sense, they run at high voltages (580-600V) and require a specialized driver uniit which transforms the power from amp into the Voltage needed to precisely control the diaphragm. The Mjolnir Audio box is that specialized driver box, which the guts are a refurbished and modified vintage STAX SRD-7 energizer unit (from the 70's-80's), and it requires an external power source (designed to be powered off stereo amps). The STAX SRM-323S driver unit is both the power amp and driver unit in one box.

https://www.staxaudio.com/technology/

The quality of amp will determine the quality of sound though, and the NAD C275BEE amp / Mjolnir Audio transformer box should be warmer with improved bass and all around more impressive than the SRM-323S driver unit. Will see...

I've got a HP meet in a few weeks and this will be there.
You have to book in a listening time. I'm booked.
So I will have 20 minutes with this $55,000 beast.

Will let me use the NAD C275BEE stereo amp to drive the Koss ESP950 and STAX SR-L300 Limited Edition headphones, and the Gustard X20U DAC will be able to control volume. I already know the C275BEE and Gustard X20U are an awesome combo together from playing music through my mains with the combo - hard hitting ad very resolving, yet also smooth and well extending with beautiful finesse and lovely dynamics. Looking forward to comparing against the STAX SRM-323S Driver unit.
Bro, you're like a mad scientist to me and I mean that in the most complimentary way. I couldn't do 5% of what you do as my skills are basically nil when it comes to electronics. I'm an expert in listening and in my bloated opinion. You do inspire me with your skills alwaya trying to improve what you have. Wish I had that talent. I love what you're doing with the M1060. You're young enough where you should really think about trying your hand at business being a modder. Start small on the side and see where it takes you. Seriously man. I've been in business for many years and all you need is a few people to buy your stuff and more will soon follow. Look what Lawton is doing? Why can't it be you bro? Anyway, Very cool what you're doing.

Are you going to CanJam? If so, a detailed report is required when you return home. I'm thinking about going to either L.A or RMAF. Never been to one and it's about time I do. The issue is, I don't want to go by myself. I don't know a sole who's into this hobby except me.

I'm not going to CanJam. A local retailer has organized the meet and secured the Orpheus for demo. It should be fun.

Yeah. I don't know many who are into the hobby either. I've got my friend Tony however he is heading to Aussie soon.

Same situation as you guys, I have no one in my circle of friends or family who shares my enthusiasm for headphone gear, or A/V stuff in general. Many have 4K TVs, but some don't even bother trying to find the HD channels on their cable or satellite, . Probably why I don't go out to my friends houses much anymore, drives me nuts, lol.
