IC: Winnipeg meet? - Page 125

post #1861 of 1869

Anyone in town have Valhalla 2 or Lyr level amps i can AB against my modded Emotiva x-mini on my HE-400is? 

 

Or possibly the HE-560? Id like to see whether i should trade up (i have 30days)

You can try sending a pm to aqsw (Jim) who has a Lyr 1.

 

I don't know of anyone else locally who has a Valhalla or Lyr...

 

I haven't heard the 400i, but I did have the 560 for a little while and thought it was an excellent headphone only a smidge down from the HE-6.

Anyone going to CanJam SoCal (March 28-29 2015, Los Angeles area)?  I just saw its announcement, and by strange coincidence it looks like I'm going to be in the area already at that time.  With the kids, unfortunately (for some reason I don't think trade shows are very exciting to 5 and 7 year-olds).  Anyway, just throwing it out there.  If anyone is thinking about it as a winter getaway, we should coordinate and grab some beer and Mexican food.

Still wondering if i should upgrade my amp ha - anyone with a high quality amp that can deliver at least 800mw@50 Ohm?  Lyr, Project Ember/Sunrise, Valhalla, Bottlehead - around the $300 range. 

 

Looking to AB vs my modded emotiva x-mini

Not in the cards for me, but hope you and Bear have fun out there!

What headphones are you driving?

 

Not to sound like a shill, but the Nuforce HA-200 is a fantastic amp at $350.

 

Bottlehead Crack is a great amp and fun to build (I've built 3 of them so far). I wasn't too crazy about the Valhalla or Lyr, but supposedly the v2's are better (particularly for the Valhalla).

Sorry - shouldve mentioned this - this is with the Hifiman HE-400i 

 

My old amp Aune T1 sounds a slightly thin compared to my Emotiva, but i wonder what a quality amp would do for them.  Right now..im hoping Project Sunrise goes on black friday sale..ive heard nothing but good things from it

Both a "sale" and "wanted" post today for friends of mine...

 

1) I have a friend looking to sell a HE-400 (not the newer 400i) and Magni/Modi. Anyone interested?

 

2) Another friend is looking for a Xmas headphone gift for her sister. Requirements are small-ish and portable, "fashionable" and <$200. Got anything to sell?

I might have something thatll fit the bill - selling my Logitech UE6000s - they were on tylls wall of fame http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/surprisingly-good-logitec-ue6000-and-ue9000 they look like a Beats style headphone but sound leagues better


They have active noise cancelling mode - which is basically a bass and treble boost for a Beats like low end (maybe not as insane)

 

I have the white ones - http://www.amazon.ca/Logitech-982-000104-UE-6000-Headphones/dp/B0094S379U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1416248090&sr=8-1&keywords=ue6000 - sell new on amazon for $165

 

Let me know if youre interested

 

I've been heading to a more neutral sound so using it less and less and switched over to the NVX Audio PT100 http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_46586_NVX-Audio-XPT100.html?utm_source=shopbot_cse&utm_medium=cse&utm_campaign=sc&scpid=19&scid=scsho3789498  which i might also sell haha
