I have two integrated amps both designed to be used with their respective pre-amps or external pre-amps. No limitations there...

SO's To-Do List:

 

1) listen to new speakers

2) ...there is no #2

 

:tongue:

:dt880smile:

3) Dinner; Stanford @ USC

 

Perhaps, I'll string 'em out round 2100 hrs... and get comfy. 

 

Add.:  The HE-6 is really starting to emerge. The run toward '500' may yield further surprises.

Oh my... good luck SO! Once upon a time I was a really good mountain biker. Had sponsors, went to different places and had a killer time! Moab, Utah was by far the most challenging and breathtaking terrain I had experienced.

 

My two all-time favorite trails:

http://www.utahmountainbiking.com/trails/porcup.htm (this one is no joke)

http://www.utahmountainbiking.com/trails/poisonsp.htm (the name of this trail was also my sponsor)

 

 

Sorry for the off-topic fellas, just fond memories I wanted to share :)

Seems like they might have an opportunity, for sure.  I'd love to see them get integrated into audio equipment: Pre-amps, DAC's, integrateds.  Hope more folks see the potential.

Man, great minds think alike! I was pondering the same thing. There are actually some extremely high-end pieces of gear that has LDRs built-in, but I've only seen it in the $10k+ region :eek:

Yes...  LDR should become much more prevalent in the audio world.  If its got a volume knob, USE IT!

Yeah I'm sure it will. Better yet, how about a remote! :jecklinsmile:

Well, if you must...  My audio gear is all old school.  Not a remote in sight :)
