For me, the HE1000 wins hands down. I never liked the HD800's sound; too bright, grainy treble, abnormally wide soundstage.
The Light Harmonic DaVinci DAC is a R-2R implementation. Just saying. And yeah I was wrong about using the Pulse as an amp. I keep thinking the RCA output is an input.
I actually pulled out a vintage Sony CDP-950 CD player (has a true multi-bit, similar to R-2R, Philips TDA1540 DAC chip) and I'm enjoying its sound with CDs a bit more, pun intended, than accurate rips of those same CDs on the X Infinity. :| Maybe I should see what happens if I use the CDP-950 as the DAC and the X Infinity as the amp.
Must be platinum-infused glue, no?
Colorware special edition.
Well I'm definitely subscribing to this thread. The price point will probably be unobtanium for me, but it's still quite interesting given the legacy of the Orpheus. Those tubes look like Voss glass water bottles.
Random question out of the blue, what is the Philips TDA1541A DAC chip exactly? Its schematic kind of looks like a R-2R, but not really since it uses capacitors on its output stage. http://www.dutchaudioclassics.nl/philips-tda1541.asp There's a loooooot of information to digest in that article so I'm not 100% certain about what kind of technology it uses. I ask because I have a Sony CDP-950 that I inherited from a friend and I only just recently brought it out to listen...
Just brought out the Sony CDP-950 CD player I inherited from Lugia. Popped in A Flock of Seagulls CD. http://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/sony/cdp-950.shtml Freaking, old-skool TDA1541 DAC chip. @mechgamer123 You should try this out with the STAX some day. : o
Whaaaaat? http://splatoon.nintendo.com/news/article/?id=36&eid=email_889494048_890097253_3512bb0d I say Autobots will win but I like the Decepticons more since they usually have more creative designs.
$199 for Pulse because I got the Pulse/Geek Out combo package for $398 ($199 for Pulse, $199 for Geek Out). $88 for passive component upgrade because they had the promo price before they hit the $1 million mark (after the $1 M mark, it was $99). Actually the "i" in Xfi means internal amp upgrade. Yes, everyone got the passive component upgrade from the $1 M stretch goal.
