I would not personally depend that much on a 300B personally. I would rather get the KR Balloon for this amp but would like to hear them first also. Right know I am pretty happy with the tubes i have in the WA5 and see no reason to hurry to change the. Especially when I am thinking of adding a second amp. My other room will be using a 2A3 amplifier for speaker only and a 5W SEP Headphone/speaker amp that is here now so  I thnk I am amped out . When I add the amplifiers I want and they are all in house now I am finished with my projects.

Thanks buddy. I  hav enow ones the T1 three times. LOL I love them on the WA5 and like them also on the GSX MK11 that in the house.

They are 3 time the EML cost.  I think right now I am pretty happy with my amos. if i want buying two more amps and another pair of speaker then maybe I would think about it. The wallet is dry again and I don't want to sell anything and I would also  like to add the lCD X to the stable.

Unless someone drops a windfall of money I am totally all in with dollars. I have to add another 5k or so of gear and need to find out how to juggle that without selling anything else.

Speaking of $5k, Jack is now apparently a reseller for Abyss headphones.  Only $5495 and you get a free Woo Audio headphone stand!

I listened to them on Saturday, being driven by the WA234 monoblocks.  I didn't walk away saying "wow."  I don't recall anyone else.  The HE-6s and LCD-3s on Frank's WA5 sounded better.

post #28599 of 30571

I listened to them this summer at the CA Audio Show through a Cavalli amp (Liquid Glass, maybe?).  They sounded good, but the LCD-3 paired with an EC Balancing Act sounded better, imho.  Neither set up touched the Stax007/WES combo.

^ You meant the 009 driven by Blue Hawaii?  :p  that sound signature still haunts me till today.  It was insanely incredible!

i guess so, especially the t1.  without the warmth, i think the t1 sound lifeless.  and i have my recable to black dragon, which is a copper cable, so somewhat similar to the stock cable?

For $5.5k, I would like an amp to got with it.  No way I'm buying a headphone for that price.

What was it you did not like with the T1 on the GSX if I could ask?

 

gsx just made the t1 too cold?  too much details?  too much everything except not being musical?  i don't really know.  just i don't like it a lot.  i tried with a different source, a tube cd player, still, it didn't sound right with t1.  or maybe time to upgrade the source(s). 

 

forgot, i really love hd800 with gsx
