 That works, but it'd have been nice to get measurements all from the same source, if only for consistency's sake. Still not sure about the difference between the TH-X00 and TH-X00sn1927, but I'm reasonably sure neither is the EB. Wonder if Tyll'll pick up the PH and EB for measurement some time?
 Sort of relevant to this: the measurements on InnerFidelity are only of the original Mahogany X00s, right? Having said that, there are two files labeled "X00" there, one under Massdrop's name and another under Fostex. The results on these charts are quite obviously different, so one wonders whether there was a pre-production unit tossed in there or there's just a lot of variance in  quality.
Have had my X00 EBs for a while now, and I love the tonality. I'd say these were perfect for my tastes, if with just a touch MOAR bass than preferred. My only real complaint is the small 11kHz bump. It really brings out the sibilance on some tracks, enough to make me wince a bit. I'm hoping it'll mellow out sooner or later. DSP is an option, if one I'd rather not resort to for a variety of reasons. Actually, while I'm at it, random impressions: Good bass thump, but doesn't...
Hi all! Putting up a pair of Grado RS1s for sale. These are the pre-i series ones with square rods and a much more ergonomic cable. No idea where to find the serial no., but the packaging leads me to assume these were made in 2008 or so. I love em, but due to grad school and, I have to admit, my itching to upgrade, these'll be needing a new home. Mahogany is a lovely dark amber colour, and the imprint is about as crisp as you could want.   I'd rate it an Audiogon 8 or...
Hmm, yep, my time away from the forum is beginning to show, haha. Thanks for the heads up, and cheers! I'll check out the thread as soon as I can. Kevin
First of all, holy crud has it been a while since I've posted. I had to reset my PW since it's been ages since I last logged in. I guess that's primarily due to my having become content with my lower-mid-tier K550s and my having gone head-first into another fairly pricey hobby, which in this case would be calligraphy and collecting fountain pens. It's nice to be back, though. Anyway, here's a bit of backstory to provide a bit of context: I've always been curious about...
Sorry, I should've made myself clearer. I knew about Android not really being able to support 24-bit (Blind A-B'ing was made totally impossible, though that could just be due to my average gear). Also, that mod sounds like a godsend. I'll be checking that out. Thanks for the tip!
I've had the One for a few days now, and the ONLY criticism I can throw at it, apart from the steps between volumes being a bit far apart (I go for "slightly too loud", myself :P), is the fact that the stock player doesn't natively support 24-bit audio. Nitpicking, I know. To be honest, this is perhaps the best DAP I've ever had. Far from being gimmicky, the Beats audio enhancement actually improve the SQ, especially when using the built-in speakers. ... Okay, that...
I know that this is probably somewhere in this huge thread, but what's everyone's take on the Lamy 2000? I'll be getting one soon, and want to know what I'all be getting myself into beforehand. Cheers!
  Um, I kinda see the direction of the analogy, but while a HDTV + low-fidelity sound system is still *somewhat* workable, a car without an engine simply won't run.   Now, if he'd mentioned a car with a weak engine, that'd be more accurate.   Hair-splitting aside, I agree that hi-fi is something of an acquired taste. As of the moment, I'm stuck with *mid*-fi gear (my AKG K242s are, at the moment, my best headphones), and happy with it. The moment I reach the pinnacle of...
