6moon reviews are complete balderdash and conjecture. They are the epitome of audiophile nonsense ranting in its purest, most ludicrous, and unadulterated form. What is there not to get lol?

 I was BADLY dissapointed by the HDP when I heard it at the meet in Berlin a month ago. That was paired with Grado SR325i and it was taken right out of the box. It would have to improve a lot during burn-in to beat the Concerto. The uDAC on the other hand was fantastic (for the price) with the SR325i.

Have you ever noticed the advertisements on that site and where some of the products coming from. It appears to me there is shilling going on. Meir does not eem to advertise and Burson.,King Rex and Nuforce are all coming from one stable and maybe a coincidence but Meir does not. In any event I take most of 6 Moons reviews for what they are and alwys listen to a product in my system to see if it is right for me or not.

Classic! It's like you're a reviewer at 6moons.

 

I too never take anything they say seriously.

post #546 of 827

I thought you weren't supposed to take anyone seriously in audio and always approach shit with a critical mind.

Wow, you get it RIGHT to the point, I hardly understand what they say, sometime I feel I think I have to improve my english, I thought it's only me smily_headphones1.gif

Yeah, they are saying one thing with as many words and as DIFFICULT as possible

I definiatly need to improve my english. I often read them just for fun to see what I can get out of it if anything useful.

Sorry for OT.

post #549 of 827

LOL.  OK, so we all agree to have a critical mind and try things for ourselves...

 

To that end, has anyone else compared the Concerto and HDP head-to-head?

post #550 of 827

Lol yeah I did try to be as long winded and redundant as possible.

 

Peter and oqvist are pretty quick on the uptake :P

 

To be fair, 6moons is exactly the type of "foreplay" a lot of people in this hobby want though. They already have a purchase in mind, and just need something to justify their lust and finalize the transaction -like a 6moon review. I'm surprised you don't need to submit your age before proceeding to the site. Some minors might stumble upon this debauchery.

Got my Concerto today! The post office delivered it literally while I was loading the moving truck getting ready to leave.

 

...so it's in the truck now, and I won't get to try it out until the weekend at the earliest. But, at least I know that it's here.

 

 

About 6moons, I definitely agree that it's more of a "confirm the decision that you've already made" review site than something that would be useful in actually selecting the best option from a huge number of similar choices (like much of this hobby is).

 

...I chose the concerto because I've heard that it pairs particularly well with the LCD-2, and picked out my other new headphone, the K702, because it was noted to pair particularly well with the M-Stage (which, of course, will now be available for it, exclusively). And crossfeed. That feature definitely helped in choosing the Concerto over similar products. Hard-panned early stereo recordings really need it.

Haha...nice timing.  Glad it worked out for you in the end.

 

I really want to personally listen to a Concerto sometime with the LCD-2, but there seem to be a shortage of them out here in the Pacific Northwest.    That and the Stacker is great with it, so I don't have a burning "need" to buy one myself.  Mostly costly curiosity.

Just had a thought about the crosfeed feature on the Concerto, what will it do to Mono recordings ? I have just purchased the new (old) Bob Dylan mono original recordings as well as the witmark demos, all of these sound very good on my speaker system and on my Voyager / ATH M-50s, will be interesting to hear what happens with the Concertos crosfeed switched on. I ordered a Concerto & T1 headphones yesterday from Jan and hope they will arrive before the weekend ;-D

With mono, the crossfeed is not needed and will probably do nothing that you can hear. In a way, crossfeed makes the signal more mono-like and is best used on recordings with hard channel panning(as I call it)... some  Beatles recordings is always a good example as well as many jazz from around the 60's.

Well My Concerto & T1 arrived earlier today, ordered Tuesday & arrived Thursday, great service ! First problem is that Jan has sent a silver Concerto, not the black that I ordered.... not sure if I like the silver better..First off the Amp. & phones where VERY cold on arrival, On the first listening they were definitly NOT GOOD, not even close to my Voyager & ATH- M50 setup, not to worry, long burn-in time I guess.... Does anyone have an idea of how long it will take to get this setup working at its maximum ? from what I have read it looks like it is somwhere between 100 & 300 hours....My 11 year old son was the first to listen to the Concerto & T1, he preffered the Voyager & ATH M-50 but noted how much more comfortable the T1 was... hope that he changes his mind in a few weeks regarding which sounds best.... as do  I
