Maybe triple.fi or Going all out for ue11's! My 500's have custom sleeves from sensaphonics. I'm not sure how I will like going back to universal fit!
Anyway, So far this amp is a winner. I really like the large soundstage and the warm deep bass. Great for all my old jazz recordings.
What do you think?
TTVJ Hybrid Millet has a very huge soundstage. It's bigger than SM LE, Bigger than SR-71, definitely bigger than the hornet. The sound is very organic and big, exceptionally musical.
It's a very musical mellow amp. Excellent for slow dance, romantic mellow music. If you are looking for something very intimate, emotional, Millett win hands down! Try any piano instrumental(Up where we belong, John Tesh), Chinese audiophile vocal, Try Diana Krall(I'll string along with you), Secret Garden
Once you listened to the Millett for intimate music, then when you swap to SM LE or Hornet, the sound becomes very dry, skinny, shrill, and digital sounding. I tend to go back to Millett for long term relaxing listening. The sound is very soothing. The bass also extends VERY DEEP, not strong not impact type, but it's very deep and articulate.
By the way I find surprisingly shocking with my UE9 compared to SM LE and HORNET, TTVJ Hybrid Millett actually sounds best with UE9
