Although I guess it can be tamed down somewhat (it needs plenty of that) and some (older?) people are simply just able to adjust to it.

 

 

my PVC dust cover lambda sig(#27xxx) has more mid-bass than the woven nylon version(#22xxx)

oh & the later version is definitely louder..it's as loud as the SR507

 

someone said the later version has 1.5um diaphragm

the normal bias lambda is an amazing headphone too,

it's my next target

post #22248 of 24765

Yeah faust3d says that the Sig is bright as well but sounds faster with better extension, I'd still consider the normal bias Lambda to be the best out of the Lambda family, the LP most bassy and dynamic and the LNS acclaimed to be most neutral like a Lambda on steroids.

 

As of now my adequately powered Gamma Pro is the most musical stat I've heard up to date. It is one of the later models with the Alpha pro pads so it makes it even rarer than the normal early round padded Gamma Pro.

What exactly does "musical" mean? Is there a static definition for such a description?

I guess you could say colored or dynamic. Things that tend to be described as cold are more analytical and closer to being neutral and uncolored.

Yep. While ago Nikongod posted that one should never sell the rare GP although not the best technical stat out there (in terms of retrieving detail compared to the higher end stats or the best Lambda's), but it is a very involving and musical. I now know why after hearing them adequately powered with the right tubes. My well powered GP is pretty forward too, more so then any of my other Lambda's.

You can say it is both. But in terms of dynamics, my LP goes lower and is more punchier sounding by subtle amounts, all will change when I get a good T1S.

No, completely different size and shape.

I had a chance to audition the Cavalli Liquid Lightning over the weekend.  This was the first time I was able to use my SR 007 mk 2 and 009s.  Of course the 009s sounded more precise and clear than the 007 mk 2, but once I connected the LL2 to my high resolution DCS dac the 007s came through like a champ, even the sound stage was quite decent.  The SR009s did improve the longer I listened, especially the bass frequencies.  I wish I'd been able to spend more time with the LL2, but another guy had reserved the demo unit.  I'm figuring the 009s require about 50 hours to break in.  I'm looking forward to hearing the LL again maybe along with the incoming BHSE !!

irregular voltage problem burnt my stax srm-727a driver :( . white smoke everywhere.. glad i removed headphone cable (wire mess) before turning on the driver.

its dead now. so the warranty covers it?

post #22259 of 24765

if you plug in your amp with the wrong voltage then i doubt the warranty will stand.
