Default Tram2 headphone amplifier mod?

I suspect that with the correct output transformer, connected perhaps to the +6dB RCA outputs, that the Tram2 would make an incredible headamp.

Is this possible?

If it sounded like the DNA Stratus it would be stunning.

Slightly off topic, but just wanted to share, that I now have an all tube system... The Plinius SA-REF is gone and a pair of conrad-johnson LP275M mono blocks has found their way into my system...

The previous owner did not vacuum clean them before shipping, so I had an excuse to take off all the covers and clean the beasts Here are some pics of the internals, c-j does not skimp on part quality in their top-of-line amps: NO electrolytics in the power supply, everything is polypropylene and polystyrene caps... In the audio circuits they use their own teflon caps... Resistors in critical places are Vishay bulk foil... RCA and speaker connectors and most of the wiring is from Cardas etc etc...

Time for tube rolling the input tubes..! Right now I have a nice pair of Telefunken ECC88 from 1964 installed...

EDIT... Sorry, no pictures for now of the c-j's... After photobucket made changes to their site I can't get the upload of pictures to work anymore ...!? Anyone of you use photobucket? How do you do it with their new site!?

Ahh... I never noticed that feature... Thanks OK; so here are some pics of a pair of nice conrad-johnson tube amps. I was a bit concerned about their gain structure, but it's perfect with the Tram II (still use the middle of the 3 outputs as I did before).

Turn off your amp before you turn off the preamp... This is what I do.

Well, you have two options The best one: Stop making mistakes... Or the one that involves a relay in your signal path: Install a relay module that is connected to the mains with it's own little power supply, so that when the mains is connected the replay is closed, and instantly when the mains voltage is gone the replay opens. You can also install the relay so it shorts the output to ground when the mains voltage is switched off, but I don't know if the tubes can handle this. Maybe it's OK because the tube only see the short for a few seconds until the voltages are gone from the tube...

Maybe someone has installed some kind of relay module..!?
