 This pretty much mirrors my experience with the HA-1 and Schiit Bifrost Uber.  I sold the Uber, kept the HA-1 based on features.  @Spamateur could have just written my experience with the Dac-19 compared to the HA-1, except my experience is not so polar.  I liked the HA-1, but in comparison, it is significantly brighter than the Dac-19.  Fatigue set in with the HA-1 (or Schiit BFUber or most DS dacs) in an hour and a half or so.  My rig is headphones only, 2011 Macbook...
^^^ Yes, welcome.
Nah. I finally got a Cavalli Crimson so I could have a single tube, not need to roll it, use currently available new tubes and have a great amp. A $10 upgrade? Sheesh. I routinely spend that on a bad lunch! I'm looking forward to trying them out.
Boosting highs and lows on the C. If I currently like one black pad, should I expect to still like one black pad after installing the foam? I'll find out soon enough I guess. I ordered a set 'cause well, why wouldn't I?
Will this actually work if my head is up my.........
Unfortunately not directly. I do realize that makes my statement a bit suspect. I have compared the Alpha Prime stock cable to a custom cable made from Double Helix nucleotide wire (on the Alpha Prime) and that same custom cable to the DUM on the Ether C. In either case, I did not hear a difference. Again, this is my experience. For comfort alone, the DUM is worth the upgrade for me. If one is able perceive a sonic improvement as well, all the better.
I wouldn't say the DUM cable sounds any better than the stock, which I think is Canare Mic cable. I still got my C's with a 10 ft DUM cable because I think it is a nicer more flexible cable and was worth it to me for that reason. Others may here differences; me, not so much.
I like my Crimson and use it almost exclusively. That said, the carbon is outstanding, and every time I listen to it, it just has this little somethin' that I just don't hear anywhere else. Some kind of engagement or something. Yeah, completely subjective, unprovable, poorly described. Still…
I've committed a sacrilege. An act of reckless and careless abandon. I'm not sure what possessed me. I plugged me Ether C straight into my iPhone 5S. Lightning did not strike me dead. No magic smoke escaped. It sounds surprisingly not bad. It will get louder than I like to listen. It has decent bass weight. Details are present. It's not as good as my Dac19/Cavalli Liquid C's/ but is closer the you'd think. So, not bad, no lightning strike, nothing burned. I do feel an...
I reached pretty far for the Crimson, and I do love it.  The LAu is a bit beyond my reach for the foreseeable future.  The Glass has too danged many tubes...  The Crimson has about the right number of tubes for me to deal with, and sounds wonderful.  I look forward to hearing the liquid Gold with familiar headphones one of these days...
