 From what I know in general, Mullards will work really well with the PM-3s due to the bass emphasis of their inherent sound signature and the warmness of tubes helping the treble and mids.  However, as someone wanting to get a tube amp for these at some point, do OTL amps have issues with these like most other planars, or does this pair buck that trend?
Hello,   So I figured that with getting new headphones, it's time that I upgrade the amp on my computer, and I feel that a tube amp would work really well with my new headphones, the Oppo PM-3.  Now, the thing is that right now, I have my speakers going into a Topping TP-22 which is connected to a Modi 2, so I do need something with at least a headphone amp AND a pre-amp to pass the RCA signal to the speakers.  As such, the options I know about are as follows;   -...
Well, I got my PM-3s today, too, so I'm gonna run through continuous pink noise burn in until Monday morning.  I will have to say, though, the the fit was immaculate once you got the right adjustment, and I have V-MODAs for comparison, which almost everyone says fits like a glove.  I also liked the build quality, as while the swivel seems loose, it doesn't feel like it'll come apart.  The click when you adjust the length of the headband also felt very satisfactory.  So...
Yeah, cymbals are not fun when you deal with sharp treble, which I feel is the Grado sound.  But yeah, between the metal I do know, I feel that Holy Wars (The Punishment Due) is a really good track for testing out headphones for me.  Thoughts on that?
So my PM-3s are coming in tomorrow, and right now, I'm in the middle of a quandary here.  If I do settle on these as my new daily, I have about $150 to get myself an amp.  The thing is, though, whether I should get a portable amp or a desktop amp, and after that, which one.  To compare, my headphone-compatible sources right now are the following, along with their DACs for those who know how the PM-3 will synergize;   Maximus VIII Extreme (Sabre ES9023P) iPod Classic 6th...
...Ah, hell with it.  I'm gonna jump on the bandwagon and have it shipped from Amazon.  "Who Dares, Wins" right?
OK, so I'm about to commit on taking the plunge on these (nice upgrade from my Crossfade LPs) and before I do, I want to ask three things;   1) How do these sound bare on the iPod Classic (the last one with the Cirrus Logic CS42L55) without EQ?  Will software-based EQ make an improvement on the sound?   2) I know that these sound great paired with an HA-2, but what would your other recommendations be for a good amp/DAC to go with these under $200?  I did hear that the...
Hello. I'm trying to reinstall the new bootloader onto my iPod using the utility, and when I set DFU mode, I get '[ERR] Could not set USB configuration: LIBUSB_ERROR_NOT_FOUND'.  Do you have any idea why I could be getting this error?  For reference, the log is as follows;  [[SPOILER]]
 Nope.  It's mentioned pretty explicitly in the second episode of Full Metal Panic Fumoffu.  Then again, considering how old Fumoffu is...
Not Office 2016?  Is this a cost issue or is there something else? Nice budget builds, too, but make sure the PSUs are decent, since not going with something OEM'd by Seasonic or Super Flower can bite you in the ass sometimes.  Also, are those 6100s OCable since there's no base clock restrictions, or do you need Z170?
