I must have missed something...I did say I wanted in. Oh well... Hibuck...
I've had both and the hd700's are the ones I kept. Since then I bought a Woo WA2 amp that IMO takes the 700 up a level. Hibuck....
Schiitt Lyr in good condition with some extra tubes to get you started: 1.  two pair of Voshkod "Rockets" with low hours 2.  one pair of NOS Lorenz tubes 3.  several pair of various russian tubes some used, some new. 4.  one well used pair of Amperex    The voshkods sound very good to me as do the Lorenz...although they (Lorenz) are a more forward sounding tube.  Just barely broken in...purchased from Tube Monger. I sold all my ortho's and just don't need...
Love this WA2! Using telefunken rectifiers, JAN 6080's and switching between Mullard 2492's and sylvania 6922's for drivers. Great with hd650's and hd700's. Much to learn about these combo's...great depth on "Joshua judges Ruth" by Lyle Lovett. Gonna be a fun trip. Hibuck....
Woo woo WA2...it arrived safe and sound. I let it warm up and am getting familiar with some of the tubes I got...listening to Anne Bisson singing September in Montreal right now. Hibuck...
The notice you like to get:  12/17/2012 6:20 A.M. Out For Delivery All this after UPS telling me they didn't know where the package was. Draygonn has been great throughout and went the second mile in going back to the store for more info. regards, Hibuck.....
Anxiety rising.  My WA2 has been in the UPS system since the 11th and the online tracking says it's still sitting in the LA UPS store.  I contacted UPS and customer service said it should have already arrived and an inquiry needed to be launched by the seller.  That doesn't help my confidence because it was likely sent "ground" so it shouldn't be here yet...there should just be updates.  (so why did they say their records showed it had missed it's delivery...
Woo-woo sign me up for that one. Hibuck...
Recently purchased the ESP950 and at first found them to be a bit thin tonally and light in the bass. After some breakin hours, I fired up JRiver on my pc and turned on the crossfeed with a little extra  judicious EQ.  Wow....different phones.  Bass still won't thump, but it there and very clean  Something about these phones just pulls me into the music. Hibuck...
I got it!  It should be here Friday or probably next monday with holiday shipping  that is going on.  Extra rectifiers as well as a variety of 6080's.  Yes, of course I'm already looking for 5998's...but I am pumped!   Now the waiting begins. Hibuck....
