IC: Winnipeg meet? - Page 76

If it's a difficult recabling, such as requiring breaking into the earpiece and remoulding a new strain relief... it's going to be cheaper to buy a new iem.

i'm sure digital can suggest a great new iem for you

Depends on what sig he's looking for and what his price bracket is. If you want to do it on the cheap I have 3 different IEMs on the FS forums right now. Take a look maybe they will interest you.

So, there is a bottlehead crack for sale on AK, and the price is now $165 + shipping (guy is in Seattle).  Anyone interested?  No speedball upgrade.

thatd be mighty tempting if i had the right headphones for it

Whats with all the crazy low prices on the Crack amp lately? I'm starting to wonder if everyone is dumping it for a new yet unannounced upgraded Crack amp.

post #1132 of 1910

I haven't heard anything on the bottlehead side of things. I'm guessing it's because one guy cranked a low price and everyone else had to follow suit. 

 

Heck, I just sold mine and I'm almost tempted to rebuy because it's so cheap. The base kit without speedball, unassembled, shipped up here is around $360.

Which is exactly why I haven't picked up one of my own...  well, not yet anyway!!

With the speedball upgrade brings it to $500... and that's considering only shipping and taxes.

An I thought it was something like 400 tops. Oh well, it is a good sounding amp so you can't blame them for demanding a premium price. When they first came out weren't they at one time cheaper though?

Since we're talking about Bottlehead has anyone thought of building or heard the S.E.X amp? I''m wondering why you don't read more on here about the S.E.X amp.

I have thought about it, but it ends up being around $750USD by the time you do the upgrades to make it sound the best it can.  You can get plenty of other OEM options for less than that.

I have not listened to them but for the money I would go with a Lyr or Valhalla before building the S.E.X.

Oh, it's $400 for just the parts. Getting it shipped up to Canada will cost you around $500, not counting brokerage if there is any. 

 

I've built a S.E.X. amp before. It's a pretty nice amp, though the Crack is still better with the high impedance cans. Right now I also have the Smack kit which has been sitting in my basement for a while now. I just need to find a slot of time to build the darned thing. The newest iteration of the S.E.X. kit also has the impedance switches that the Smack kit had.

So what do you guys think? Not exactly high end by Head-fi standards but this ghetto-fi rig sounds pretty sweet to my ears.

 

 

Here's a pic of most of my headphones and other amps. I got to get another pic taken with the AKG's and my XB700's. Can't believe I forgot to include my XB700's
