Please advise me, oh ones with tuberolling wisdom. Thanks. I know NOTHING about this area and truly need your guidance. JC I would definantly try replacing those stock "chrome-domes", pre-amp...
My friend has the Cary 306/200 cd transport followed with the SLi-80, and all I can say is that it is awsome! His was modified at Cary with the upgraded caps and resistors. Once he recieved it, he replaced the stock 6SN7 tubes for some Electro-Harmonix 7502 tubes, (I think that's the right #??). Also replaced were the stock KT-88s for some KT-90s.

Here's another free bump for a very respectical set of cans!
I just had the chance to try both the Beyer DT880s and Senns HD600s side by side over the weekend. Here's the link to my review of the older HeadRoom Cosmic vs the newer Cosmic Reference and the HD600s vs DT880s. Take a gander at it and see what you think. I have been told that my review was very fair, which I wanted it to be anyway.
