ATH-W1000X Appreciation Thread! - Page 102

post #1516 of 1851

Meh I had to warp my headband as well, took me about two weeks, little bit each week. Yet here I am almost a year  later and I still have these cans! My DT 880 is gone, my Mad Dog is gone, MANY closed back are gone, K550, Sound Magic HP 100, MODDED Shure 840...  nothing compares to the L3000 Modded W1000x at the price I paid for mine [about $400]

 

So imo it's worth what ever touble you have to go through to get that headband working for you

 

btw the W1000x sounds wonderful via my Hm801 Line out Pb2 Lme 49990 Quad op Amps [Dummy Buffers]

 

A nice step up from the Pb1 I must say! Can't wait to get her balanced and use the Pb2 to it's full :D

Mshenay, do you prefer the PB2 over ES10, im still looking for an amp to line out from a dx50?

Never listened to the ES 10 to be honest, but I paid about $300 for my Pb2, as it came with the HifiFlight Kit, and it did not come with a Power adapter, which I had to purchase seperatly.

 

If you can afford it, AND you plan on using balanced headphones [or a balanced w1000x] then yes my gawd get the PB2, install dummy buffers and LME 49990 op amps, with my warm HM801 the combo is... well awesome... listening to some old Snes music... the cleaner op amps of the PB2 combined with the Angled Drivers layer the sound wonderfully! It's going to b even better once I balanced by W1000x here soon

Exciting news! (for me)

I will be getting in a pair of HD650 which I will mod with wood cups and a balanced cable... and I will put them up against the W1000X

 

Anyone curious to read the results once I did the A-B comparison?

I'll be hooking up the W1000X to the Lyr here soon. Hope the synergy is nice.

+1, Alas I do not own a Sansui(soon I hope), but out of my vintage receivers they sound fantastic.

I've demo'd my w1000x and Ad1000x with Lyr before and it isn't bad at all IMHO. I actually like it, hiss is very minor. Not a deal breaker if someone is looking to pair A/T's with Lyr.

I love vintage stereo/amps…  My Sansui 8080db and 8080 are my go to power/sound source, sold everything else ;).  The only down fall about these vintage stereo's is that they are HUGE and takes up a lot of space.  But I don't care I have plenty of space for them in my theater room.  I also have 8 vintage Pioneer speakers hooked up to my Sansui's for live listening.  

 

Good luck on finding a Sansui Stereo, you won't be sorry if you buy one.  ;)

When I bought my  Pioneer SX-980 from a guy at a swap-meet( now my go to guy for tubes and vintage) who had this stand in an indoor area with all vintage gear, I was a 1/2 mile from where I parked. I definitely know how heavy they can be lol.

 

That is relatively small compared to the Sansui.

1/2 mile carrying to the car… lol  I bet you took several breaks in between too.  Carrying my 8080's from the car to the house is already breath taking and they're nearly 50lbs each no joke...
