The 71A with these IEM's is open and airy with integrated bass and quality separation of singers/instruments.
By newer generation, do you mean the 71a compared to the 71?

Out of stock on SR-71As?

If so, he isn't. He has already stated that he still has a few more, even some black chassis that were damaged with some scratches but he asked his manufacturer to do new ones.

People with tysonics who claim to hear an improvement how so did the amp improve? I needed rechargeable so I went ahead and bought a pair (newer blue ones with gold connectors) but I want to hear the improvements found so I know what to look for when I receive them

Why not wait until you get them and judge for yourself. That way there will be no influence on what you think you should or should not hear. Maybe you will hear a change and maybe not.

well I like knowing what others have heard so I don't convince myself into hearing something that was not really there.

Ok but if you don't know what to expect, how do you know what to convince yourself of?

I find the Tysonic to be more transparent and the sound to be more refined and the soundstage is a little larger.

I went back through this thread and gathered a few of the things that I'd posted about what I hear with the Tysonic ULD 9V compared to others:

With these batteries, the sound seems to my ear to have more depth to it (in dynamic range and spatially). With the Ultra Low Self-Discharge batteries, the Blackbird takes a step closer to the sound from my Mapletree stationary tube amp - with a noticeable measure more of lushness, liquidity and openness than with my second favorite batteries for the BlackBird: MAHA 9.6V (230 mAh) rechargeables.

Thanks for posting your findings! Cannot wait to get mine in.

Update: Just got em opened em up along with the charger now have em plugged in and letting them run....will post on my findings
post #625 of 674
well I just plugged in my tysonics and powered up and my amp sounds more refined now it is hard to explain but def. noticed a change and for the 20 bucks def worth it
post #626 of 674
So if you had to quantify the difference with the new batteries, how much better would the sound be? Is it a last 1% type of thing? 10% better?

For me the amp is more refined, as noted above. I can't really put a % on it. It just refines the amp and gives better transient response. It is well worth it to me. Why not have the best sound out of it? I mean it sounds great anyway but I just enjoy the extra everything with the Tysonics.
post #628 of 674
honestly it is not expensive at all it may be adds 5% of that extra enjoyment but it is so worth it.....it is like putting icing on the cake
post #629 of 674
It may be sensitive to different batteries, but is it sensitive enough so that when I pass gas over here, the micro-changes in air density is detected as a subtle impact on sound quality of your SR-71A over there?
post #630 of 674
It's obvious that some of us do not buy into the whole "tysonics make it sound better" bit, but I would imagine we could be more accepting of others' opinions.
