Up for sale is a Denon AVR-789 AV receiver in excellent working condition. Used in smoke-free, pet-free environment and only at low- to medium-level volumes, this unit retailed above $1,000. The box comes with the amplifier, remote, manual, radio antenna and power cord. The Audyssey mic is not included. The box weighs about 13.5 kg so pick-up (from Sydney Eastern Suburbs to CBD) is preferable. Otherwise, I expect shipping will be around $30-$50, depending on which...
Up for sale is a 3m Cardas Smurf Blue for Sennheiser HD-580 & HD-6XX, terminated with balanced connectors. I bought this from another Headfier a few years back, with the view of a future upgrade to balanced head-amp. Suffice to say, I am still firmly on single-ended connection and have upgraded to the HD-800. This cable thus has become a surplus. I will consider any trade offers for a single-ended HD-800 cable. Happy to post anywhere within and outside Australia. Please...
Headphile uses solid core wires which, while still flexible, should definitely not be subjected to kinks.The main run of the cable, sheathed in what I believe is multi-filament nylon, is free from microphonics. The ends of the cable (at the plugs), where they are terminated with bits of techflex, are where things can get noisy. I speak from experience as a Blacksilver cable owner. If you are handy with soldering iron, I highly recommend trying the mods yourself (here's a...
Still worth trying to rwplace rhe elastics with even tighter ones. You may be surprised at the result.
I don't think these phones really 'warm up'. It's more likely your ears getting attuned to their sound.I'm personally not a fan of tubes so my exposure is almost all transistors. Speaker amps will definitely have the power to drive these but be wary of the background hiss they tend to exhibit. This (and the space taken) are quite the reason I do not use my Cyrus integrated amp with my phones.
You can replace those with the headband ties girls use. It's about 1-2cm in diameter. I don't have pictures on how to do this but it's quite simple. From memory, unscrew the inner and outer cup sides (not the ones covered by the pads). The elastics will be exposed, allowing you to replace it.
I have owned a number of K340s, bass -light & -heavy (based on listening to them, rather than the driver colour -which do indeed vary from model to model-). I modded all my K340s (with the exception of one which still had perfect-shaped cable), being dual-entry cable, internal silver wiring, cotton mod and cloth grille. I have come across some I consider 'tired-sounding' and also some which are simply 'vibrant-sounding'. If you think yours is the former, the mods improve...
Got the C5D today. It's working great out of the box with the Note 2 and Neutron player. It's a notable improvement from the Note 2's already decent built-ins, esp. in terms of background noise (which the CK100Pro picks up easily). It's very clean-sounding, for lack of better words. I need to get a replacement micro-to-mini OTG cable though. I accidentally bent the pin on one end when I put it all into my pocket. Anyone knows of a good place to buy short OTG cable (that...
I have Android version 4.1.2 on the Note 2. Will the c5d work with it?
How do I tell what version I have?
