So the receiver must get a signal and then amp it up right? Which means you are relying on the amp of the receiver. Does this mean if you have forked out for an MP3 player with superior sound (or are cheap and nerdy like me and use a penguinamp) then that is wasted and you are really getting the sound interpretation of the sleek receiver?
Yeah, as you would with any wireless headphone set.
Yes, indeed the W-1 neck pendant has an amp built in, so you are not driving the SA6 directly with the MP3 player.My understanding from reading Head-fi forum posts from Jason at Sleek Audio is that the amp has been tuned on the W-1 pendant to improve the bass punch of the SA6 a little. The SA6 is a 50 Ohm earphone, so needs a little more driving than some other earphones.
This product looks useful to me while recording guitar to a digital 8-track. I know that you have said that it will work with any audio equipment but would like your opinion on whether there would be any problems with mt preferred use for the device.Thanks.
If the 8-track has a standard headphone output socket then the Sleek Audio earphones would work fine. If the device doesn't have a headphone output, but does have a line level output then you could drive headphones with a dedicated headphone amplifier.
where can I buy these?
