I wasn't offended by the old man comment, just sounded (read it) strange. Tubes do add some warmth (generally) even some older solid state units will do the same. the he400s are 299 any number of places right now since it has been replaced by the 400i. I listened to the 400is and the 560s and didn't like either. The 400is sounded like there were tiny empty tin cans attached and had a slightly hollow sound. They were much lighter though. The 560s were too recessed and...
"SRM-1/ MK-2 connected to a Primaluna tube amp"   why is this connected? the mk2 is an integrated amp that is capable of taking a line level source input. It can also pass through a signal to another amp or preamp that has a headphone output.   example: my mk2 is fed by a modi. the pass thru on the mk2 is routed to the magni. with the stax amp off I can still listen to the 400s through the magni/modi, I could listen to both sets simultaneously.   they are very...
I don't think planar headphones change like some dynamics do. That was my experience with the 400s anyway.
That WAS YOU!!!!!! lol, I thought you did a great job of hitting all the stations!
was one selling a Stax009 and a KS amp?these?
  Some thoughts about the meet.   Scott did a great deal of work on this and deserves all the thanks we can give.   Suprise! Mr.Speakers headphones are extremely ear worthy.

I didn't know before hand that Noble was doing impressions at the show.   Not a Suprise No one is photogenic with a bite block,...

I was just going through the list. I'm leaving the Stax 407s (Someone else is bringing them) at home and bringing the Hifiman he400s instead I'll still bring the SR5 and Lambda NB also Mrs toast is coming; I think she'll be holding / hiding my wallet.   I'm tempted to bring the newest headphone, the UE6000 which was on Tylls wall of fame for a long time. Now I know why. Currently can be found for a third of the mslp. Point being even the "cheap" headphones belong at...
neither, traveling by bike you'll lose them. In ear monitors or something that clips on is what you should be looking at.
i have the Denon Ceol, wonderful. Does everything the Marantz does. I have a network attached storage that does dlna; the only change i had to make was put the 350gb of music into alphabetical folders, otherwise scrolling through artist/album was a chore given a three line display and 2400 folders.
