I think it might be held up in customs.

 

My concerto just arrived last week.  It took about a month.

I'm looking for new high-end cans.

Which headphone would you consider?

 

- sennheiser HD 800 (1000 euro)

-LCD-2                     (1000 euro)

-beyerdynamic t1      (900 euro)

 

Thx for the input.

 

 

 


I would go with the LCD-2 having heard all of those and currently owning 2 of them.

 

LCD-2 + Concerto is very much a world class sounding pairing with a "budget" pricetag.

Yes, it was your rave reviews of the MAD EAR+HD, in part, that has me thinking that the Beyer's really want (read: not 'need') tubes. I wonder how well a pair of DT880 600's would compare to the DT990's and hope to do a direct comparison with the Concerto, at some point. Feel free to let us know how the WA2 compares to both the Meier and the MAD, when you get a chance!

I wonder if the very detailed, slightly bright Concerto pairs well with these fairly high register/highly resolving cans?



The Concerto and T1s do work very well together...no doubt to my ears. But, I still prefer them (and all 600 ohm beyers) with tubest to get the most out of them. I should hopefully have my new Woo WA2 in late next week and as it's an OTL amp, even better suited for the T1s over my MAD Ear+HD.

Mine arrived after more than 20 days. It is usually held up by customs. They take apart all the tape on the boxes and look at what is inside.

I bet the guys at customs are listen to the Concerto, haha.

Jan told me 2 weeks but you guys had to wait 20 to 30 days then that makes me feel better.

post #756 of 827

Yeah, 2 weeks will not happen - especially if you ordered it in December - because of all the Christmas and New Year's gifts going around. I found that all the tapes on the inside packages were cut - that can only mean that the customs' folks were meddling with it ...

 Nevermind, they came in today. It took exactly 1 month. I ordered on the 15th of December.

Will do. I'm thinking the WA2 will be the better match for the T1s (and likely HD800s/LCD-2s). But the MAD is breath taking with my RS1i and Ed. 8s.

i got the amp last week and really like it,very very smooth sound with DT880/600.

Thanks for Skylab great reviews.

post #760 of 827

So...

 

90% sure I'm gonna order the Meier Concerto/DAC units sometime soon. The HR Ultra/DPS better defend her turf or risk getting toppled from the heap and kicked to the curb.


Any predictions which will come out ahead in the end? biggrin.gif

post #761 of 827

My StageDac + Concerto came in 2 days ago. Took 16 days to get here, however I bought them used from someone in Switzerland. Was surprised that customs left the box untouched. Must have been lucky.

post #762 of 827

Is the stagedac->concerto->HD800 a good combo?

Absolutely...but I prefer the HD800s with either of my two tube amps.

post #764 of 827

Just noticed the Concerto (and the Symphony.2 too) is now SOLD OUT on Meier Audio!!!

 

Can't wait for the next killer amp from Jan very_evil_smiley.gif

post #765 of 827

I hope he comes out with a balanced amp and dac. I would buy it in a heartbeat.
