That should be obvious. You want to mail them off to ME!

I'm thinking I might even just sell them. Don't have too much time to spare these days to play with modding, and a bit of extra cash never hurts. Or just trade them for other gear maybe.

Wonder if you can put a very tiny tiny bit of silicone grease on those hinge points. Thhe stuff doesn't ruin plastic as far as I know since plumbers use it. It's super cheap.

Now you need an HP-50 to keep the colour scheme rolling along.

 

Well then, don't let me to try to dissuade you!

Yes, silicone grease is 100% safe for plastics.  I'll give it a try. 

An HP-50 wasn't on my list, but then, I don't actually have a list so maybe.  These are actually pretty worthy.

I was wondering I currently have Mad Dogs, but I also own Yamaha HP-1s, HP-2, and YH-3. I'm interested in modding them. Do you think it's pointless to keep all three orthos when I already have the Mad Dogs?

 

I'm thinking of at least selling the YH-3s since they seem to be lowest quality ortho out of the three.

Today I found a Yamaha c-6 preamp at a thrift store for 25. Thought about it for quite awhile because I wasn't finding much info on the internet except for 2 of them on eBay for $200 and $350. So I bought it with the plan of using its phono preamp mostly. Well got it home and set up, WOW! The headphone out is very good. Powers my hd600 at half volume at ear blasting levels. It has so many ways to eq it and sounds very good for used gear. Lucky me , I know.
My curiosity is that I think it's about a 1980-81 and I wonder if they built it with their ortho dynamic line in mind. I have yet to use it with anything other than hd600, but when I get a chance I'm gonna pull out my hifiman he5le and listen some more. If it powers those I'm sure it could power yh1000.

Aren't Mad dogs and Yamaha different in sound signature? I think fostex have dry mids while Yamaha have lush mids which cant be found in other orthos.
