Heed CanAmp - Page 45

post #661 of 2774
for a fair comparison i'd let them burn in for sure. my "out of the box" impression of the 701s was: "uh oh. did i just waste $320?" but that thought dissipated quickly after a listen 12.5 days later!

Yes, kind of the same system used by Musical Fidelity on the X-Can V2 and V3.

Update on The Wait:

I have just received an e-mail from Alpar at Heed Audio explaining that the CanAmps bound for Brussels remain in line for shipment behind the next batches for the UK and the States, so I might receive mine just before Xmas.

Sigh.

And this from Alpar, who requested I pass it along here:

Before Christmas is still good, right, so you have time to play with it? (Waiting for a Xin amp mellows you out.

Heed Canamp - 72 hour burn in report.

The Heed has been amplifying Tracy Chapman's debut album on continuous loop since Saturday AM.

The bass which grew round and bloated/bloomed 24 hours ago seems to have returned to normality this morning. I've never listened critically to a burn in before, so this is an interesting journey.

Whilst I've heard a little more detail from this album via my speaker setup, the listening experience draws you in - magical and dreamy - makes me think of the Cadburys Caramel TV advert years ago with the hot bunny (UK head-fiers will get this I'm sure)

Heh-Heh, yes, it should be well burned-in for the Meet, Charles.

In the meantime, I'll just have to make due with my Go-Vibe V5S, which, Belgian post willing, should be arriving any day now.

What a coincidence. I received mine (well, a stock version) today. I actually bought this amp "just to tie me over" waiting for the Xin Feng SM4LE, but even straight out of the box, what a difference it makes over a stock iPod. Unbelievable.

I'm just wondering: How much would y'all give to be in my position again, huh?

thank you for your post: it goes slowly, after all I turned 55 today! The surgeon figured about 4-6 weeks and I am at 4. I also had a torn MCL thrown into the surgery which gets aggravated by the surgery itself. The good news is the
surgery is over and there is less pain and more mobility. Don't let the kids play college football!!

happy birthday. i get your meaning about the sports. i've played something (basketball, baseball, or softball) pretty much year around from age 15 until i retired at 31 after having minor knee trouble in my late 20s. now i'm a golfer!

Somebody (I guess mrarroyo) stated, that CanAmp is quite good for K1000.
I wonder what cabling is suggested to get, when I currently only have CanAmp, but aspiring to get fullsize amplifier to power K1000 and future speakers. (Some tip for european amplifier?)

best regards

Excellent development indeed, I am pleased!
