 Hey Sonido, how long do the batteries typically last in the Quickie? Have you needed to replace them often? Anyone else tried it with the HD 650/Crack combo with good results? I'm curious, and it's cheap enough that I'm willing to give it a whirl. Hell, it's cheaper than many premium tubes!
The whole damn thing. Just wonderful.
Sold.
There will be 4 total resistors that you will NOT install that the original instructions would have you install. And as others have said you will also bend a few caps down to make room for the Speedball. Best bet is read through the speedball instructions first and write down the resistors that are no longer needed, and skip those steps during the initial build.
lol I can't even remember what stock Crack sounds like anymore. All my builds except the very first a couple of years ago have had the Speedball installed in the get-go. Just be aware that installing the Speedball after the fact does require some unsoldering and dismantling of a few components. Nothing too crazy, though.   Even with Speedball, I did hear a noticeable improvement upgrading the output tube to a Tung-Sol 5998. Worth every penny IMO, and a highly recommended...
The HD 650 with BH Crack/Speedball + Tung-Sol 5998 tube is a STUNNING combo. I have the same set-up and it's used pretty much exclusively for my HD 650 The HD 700 also sounds great with it, but still lacks a touch in sparkle and energy compared to running it on my Darkvoice 3322.+1 for me as well- it was pretty clear that the HD 700 was an upgrade to the HD 650 right out of the box. Though, I fell in love with both of their sound signatures at the very beginning even...
New DT-990 Pro 250 Ohm version $145.95 with free shipping on Amazon. Lowest they've been according to Camelcamelcamel.   http://www.amazon.com/Beyerdynamic-DT-990-Pro-250-Professional-Acoustically-Applications/dp/B0011UB9CQ
Sorry, TMRaven "like new". Thank you for correcting me on someone elses sales thread. They do look mint upon inspection. I'd rather pay amazon fees than sell them for $190. Though that's an absolute steal for the buyer.
Yeah, I got about 100 PM's from frazzled head-fiers telling me I was crazy for trying to sell mine for $285. Good luck, pal...Still have my mint in box ones sitting at 275. I'll probably just throw them up on Amazon, eat some fees and be done with it.   Most annoying selling experience ever here.
 Will your work not allow you to swap the days? It's not like you're giving them a weeks notice...
