These are the best price I've found on line http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/607987-REG/Sleek_Audio_Replacement_Cable_for_SA6.html, not sure if the angled connector would work on the SA1's or not, might be awkward, since the wireless setup works with both models I'm assuming the plug is the same, just SA1 is strait, and the SA6 is has a 90 degree bend. I'm on my 2n'd set ATM, I have another set on standby, its to bad too, the wire gets a bit frayed just outside the...
Totally Agree. Ray is an engineering Audio Genius, his designs, the execution and implementation with the best parts, his testing and golden ear, and with the Dark Star you are seeing some of Rays finest work, I have an RSA Predator, its a Jewel of an amp, I love the sound, it has a life time warranty, parts and labor, the battery has a 3 year  warranty. Cheers Ray !!.  You cant put a price on the magic Ray can infuse in his gear, to me he is and always will be the...
I prefer to listen when I have time, I'M sure if I had more time and was in some way unhappy with what I was hearing I would use EQ, if it was easy and possible on my portable rig, but for me it not very practical. I do appreciate the responses, and perhaps I came off like a jerk, I apologize. I wouldn't be on here if I wasn't willing to learn and grow in the hobby. With my predator and Ipod classic its to big to fit in a shirt pocket, so adding another box to the setup...
Geeze, sorry to offend, reread my original post, I do use EQ in my car, but am quite happy with my headphone setup atm, and prefer no EQ, period, Im not dismissive, or narrow minded, I have my own opinion, and that's my right, perhaps talking down to others or just feeling you haven't stressed your point has worked you up, Im pretty sure at my age I know how I feel and what I like. All the more power to you that you like tweaking the sound, I don't, I like enjoying the...
Apache is a 3k 2 piece unit, Ray in a genius IMHO, not sure if that's the one you are referring to, I think most if not all of Ray's Amps have a chip of some type, but also use heaps of discrete parts.  Cheers
meh
Id say the more you have to EQ, the more it indicates your setup has issues you have to correct for,  or possibly  you may have some hearing loss and EQ to compensate, generally speaking a good system playing hi quality sources wont require EQ, but music is personal and as long as you enjoy the experience more power to you. I don't EQ on my headphone setup. but I mess with it all the time in my car ( 84 Z31 na with Blaupunkt / Polk setup).
Its like referring to your GF, well she aint so bad, not pretty, but really not ugly either, well ya, thats Bose for your, how about setting a higher bar and going for great sound, Bose is Mid-fi at best, ok if you prefer your music on a clock radio. IMHO
Many discrete designs will include very hi quality parts like Dale Vishay  .1% resistors, panasonic caps etc, here's a quote off Ray Samuels site referring to some of the parts he uses in his builds  http://www.raysamuelsaudio.com/products/predator. The hi quality parts will help keep you amp sounding good for years to come and offers a more robust build quality, the built in amp in iPods is an IC, and it offers only basic sound, much akin to the quality of mp3's, ok for...
No Bose is worth even a 90% discount, if someone offered me a free pair I'd turn them down, don't support such a pos company, over hyped products with terrible quality and sound, so may other great choices out there, no one who is serious about audio would consider Bose. Bose wont even allow big box retailers to display they're junk near any quality gear, lest it might be compared in a unbiased venue.
