IC: Winnipeg meet? - Page 72

post #1066 of 1869

I recently put some soft leather pads on the HE-6 and it's like I superimposed the bass of the LCD-2. Who ever heard of a U-shaped ortho? 

 

I think Brian Reimer Audio had an HD800 for audition at some point. You could give Steve (sckeith) a shout if you want to try out the K702 again. 

 

I'm still trying to figure out what path to go if/when I downgrade.

I might be up for a mini swap, just got my k702's in a few days ago and i loved the sound of the hd600's

Well I did it. I went to the Dark Side, or should I say the Bright Side. My Grado SR325is headphones just arrived yesterday! So far I am surprised how much I like them.

Interesting. That's one of the ones I've been curious to hear as I've heard the 60/80/125/225/HF2 and the 325 is the last in the mid-fi line that I haven't tried yet.

They do sound pretty good especially with the E-10 bass boost on!

Really?  You haven't gone down to Creative Audio for an audition of the 325?  I think Advance also has them too.

I haven't been back to Creative Audio since way back when I bought my SR80. Hmm I don't remember ever seeing the 325 at Advance...

Nice!  I might buy a dozen at that price.

After a long drought, I've got an upgrade in the works: a Millet MAX built by cetoole, which should be arriving late this week.  Can't wait to plug my HD600s into it.  biggrin.gif

If anyone's looking for a usb dac/amp, I spotted this on kijiji today: http://winnipeg.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-sell-musical-instruments-pro-audio-recording-equip-Focusrite-VRM-USB-headphone-mixing-box-W0QQAdIdZ446534945

I've got one and it's a nice little unit. Really great for room/speaker simulation.

What are some of the better stores in the city for head-fi gear?  I need some interesting places to check out next time my wife drags me into the city.

 

Thanks

Advance on Portage - AKG and Grado

Creative Audio on Osborne - Grado and Denon (they used to have Sennheiser, but don't show any on their site now)

Brian Reimer on St. Mary's - mostly Sennheiser from my recollection, and I think they used to have an HD800 but it's been ages since I've been

I was just at Advance last weekend.  First time in about 20 years since I've been in there.  Not as much gear as I would have thought.

 

I've driven by the other two countless times but wasn't sure if they carried much.  I'll take a look at those 2 next trip into the city.

 

Thanks
