IC: Winnipeg meet? - Page 77

post #1141 of 1858

Icon2 - speaker amp // RJ45CX - converter box // Icon HDP - dac and headphone amp

 

I keep upgrading the stack. I called it the Trifecta before, but now it's a the Nuforce Towers.

 

The new addition is the unit in the middle. I managed to fine their discontinued RJ45CX which is essentially an RJ45 to binding post adapter (their icon speaker amps use RJ45 connectors to conserve space). I opened it up and modded it to include a 4-pin XLR on the front.

 

So now that's the Icon2 speaker amp driving the HE-6 through the RJ45CX adapter, being fed from the HDP. Both being driven from the LPS power supply.

I see my old DT1350's 4th from the far right. I really miss those cans. I can see myself getting another set down the road.

I'm sure they'll come out with some new portable with the tesla drivers in the near future. Something less wonky than the T50p.

Sigh, yeah, and I keep modding things (fully reversible mind you) and adding to the stack that it makes it harder to part with. I don't think there's anything else I can add to the stack now though... 

 

Right now the HE-6 has been regrilled with some more open and less reflective, and there are some leather pads on the front with some damping. I've eliminated the hard treble bite that they have in stock form, and staging is a bit better now too. On the flip side, these literally are louder on the outside than inside now rolleyes.gif

Since we're all throwing up pics of our current collection I quickly snapped a updated pic with my iPhone 5. That's all the gear I currently have amp DAC and headphone wise. I should try figuring out something to include all my IEM's As you can see Mr Happy seems to highly approve

That's quite a haul!  What model of Stax is that?  I just gave Derek his 4040 rig back after he was kind enough to lend it to me for a couple months.  I really liked it, though I found myself wanting to listen at higher volume than my usual.  I could see myself owning a set of Lambdas at some point.

I'd post a picture of my rig but there is not much there. I'm really liking the new Hifiman HE-500 though. The k702's are pretty well sold to a fellow where I work. My picture would consist of my Squeezebox Touch, Benchmark DAC1 USB and the Hifimans.

They are normal bias lambdas.   Bought new back in the 1980s.  They had been in storage for quite a while until I was doing some dejunking of my apartment and got sidetracked.   Had to givet henm a listen for nostolgias sake.  Next thing I know i'm neck deep in head-fi.  You coild say they are the bane of my wallet and the cause of my rekindled addiction   but that's just my story, and I'm sticking to it.L3000.gif

Hey GG, I heard from DF that you were in town. We'll have to set up a mini-meet while you're here... 

post #1154 of 1858

Any day before April is fine. Maybe later than this Thursday so I can get my cables in for some evangelizing. :)

I'm in Brandon fairly frequently.  Want to get together sometime?  I'd be interested to try those LCD3s.
