Seattle area vinyl junkies? - Page 9

post #121 of 134
It's like I said only thing I like about your old setup is quantity of bass. Everything seems too warm and too slow.

About my W3000, it's hard to make it sound like the L3000. The wood is the same (Hokkaido cherry wood) but the cup's shape is different. W100's cup is deeper than the L3000's. It decreases bass while increase treble. At this point the cans sounded really aggressive. Replacing the driver housing to be the same as W5000's or L3000's and adding some dampening inside the cup makes its bass coming back a bit and tame down the treble a little. Changing the cable to the Jena Labs OFC makes sound warmer. It was the way the can sounded at the last meet. Now I remove and replace some dampening and found its sound great as I like!


However, it just come close to the original L3000 like 90% of overall SQ - less bass and more treble. I hope we can make a head-to-head comparison again as well.

Thanks. Didn't realize how much the cup shape effects the sound.

What about the HF-2. Do they sound more detailed than the RS-1, or just a bassy version. The PS-1 definitely was way more resolving than the RS-1.

I didn't as well, but after I tried to put the L3k drivers on W5000 and other ATH models, I did.

Speaking of HF-2, it's still in the break-in time. It has more bass than RS1 while a bit less resolving though.

I guess I need to give more time on it.

I look forward trying some Grado headphones. I will bring HD800, K701, Phonitor and my new cd player. I sold Ultrasone E9. They sounded good, just the comfort was really bad.

Yeah, if I can make it I would be happy to give you a ride. However, right now it looks like I may have to be out of the country at the end of this month.

So now who's bringing the PS1000?
post #127 of 134
There is a possibility that my isabellina hfa and my offramp might show up a day or two before the meet. They wont be burned in but if they arrive it will be worth bringing.

I can't believe that I missed Portland in March and now I'm gonna miss this one too. You'd think that I'd have watched closer.. I got a cheap red-eye to Denver for the 25th and won't be bcak until Monday.... Oh well... Maybe the next one.... I have pretty un-impressive gear, but I would lile to meet the Northwest Locals.

It's looking like a GREAT meet. Can't wait!

I am working on a new source to bring to the meet. Need more than what I have now.

Hey folks, I'm a bit of a newbie around here - does anyone mind if I come join the party? I don't have a lot to offer, I can bring an HD650 (don't know if anyone finds that interesting anymore..) I live in the Mill Creek area, I could offer a ride if someone needs it. I think I saw that someone lived around Silver Lake....

just come and enjoy would be totally fine.

Anyway, I think I will start the new thread with fully organized information about this meet at least for people who may want to join and don't want to read all 9 pages to discover where when and etc.
