Yes that is completely nuts considering a brand new 650 cable shipped is around $20!!

Hoping this is regarded as a decent combo.
In any case- subscribed.

Its a fantastic combo.

Just sold my HD650s last night blink.gif

 

It was a painful decision and I actually lost some sleep over it.

Now that's what I call a steal.  How old was the pair you bought?

Well I have reached the point where I can say for sure that my HD 650 + Asgard are the end game for me.dt880smile.pngbeerchug.gif

No curiosity of what the planar magnetics sound like?

 

After becoming a huge fan of the HE-500, the HD650 became less and less used every week, until eventually... not used at all.

They were almost brand new, except for some paint that came off. Paint is glossy and the padding is full.

None right now I am using a high end Sony cd player as my source but I may look at the Bitfrost in the future.

Really enjoying the HD650 and Lyr with newly acquired Telefunken tubes. Thinking of maybe trying the Amprex PQ's next. Anyone here ever tried them with the HD650?
post #8939 of 36888

Never tried those, but I do really like the Telefunken's and just got a Green Hornet a week ago that's brilliant with the hd650. 

post #8940 of 36888

Well, I just got my HD650 in today and I can honestly say that with the Darkvoice 3322, I am very, very pleased. My initial impressions are that it sounds....rich and full bodied. Enveloping, even. And they only have less than an hour on them! I only hope the soundstage opens up ever slightly more. But I love it, these are keepers I can already tell in my brief time with them.

 

I will still have to wait till around January to try them our on a Lyr/Bifrost combo. Really interested to hear how they sound on it.
