SOLD - Excellent HD650 with original box, outer box, cable and adapter. Darned if I don't keep buying the HD650 because I love them, and selling them because open headphones don't suit my needs. These are excellent condition, no paint chips, very little use. I also have a 5 foot long balanced to 4 pin XLR Norne Audio Skoll EDIT - I've noticed that the black foam that covers the very center of the driver was removed before I received them.  This is a common mod to the...
The PM quote was from me.  I do stand by it - in the sense of the whole diminishing returns thing.  "Head and shoulders," "Night and Day," "Profound" etc is "lousy TV" sound to "good stereo gear" sound difference to me.  A bit better but not 4x or 2x better refers to the fact that better sound does not generally scale linearly with $$$.  Is the Crimson better - yes, definitely.  How much better?  I sold my Liquid Carbon last Friday - there was no reason for me to keep both...
Or is it she may be on to something? Danged boy-centric hobby - sorry @Middy!
Please be the Guinea Pig for us. I am very interested in adding your exact set up to my Dac-19.
Here goes a mild derail - Manhattan Project is a stand alone digital parametric or graphic equalizer box. Hopefully. EDIT THIS IS A GUESS.
@organ_donor, see @Middy 's solution. I think he may be on to something …
HA-1 amp section is very good. Pure class A, very neutral. The DAC section is a bit more polarizing. I could tell almost 0 difference as compared to a Sciit Bifrost Uber. There are other dacs I prefer, but the HA-1 is a good unit.I wouldn't let the balanced vs SE thing let you miss something excellent.
Alright, I like it a lot.  I'd say outside chance it could be my last amp, but given my history, that is unlikely.  I did bust out the Carbon again, to do some switching back and fourth.  I'll report back once I can describe the difference a little bit.   I would like to ask for a bit of discussion on non-stock tubes that people have tried.  I'm not in a particular hurry to try anything out.  Something that Alex Cavalli wrote somewhere (probably his website....) implied...
Ok, I'm here now.…
No. The previous owner went through a couple of NOS tubes and back to stock. Lmk what you went with. I'll try out a NOS tube at some point. I like the idea of the currently available Genelax.
