T1's arrive on Thursday. Looking to upgrade my amp to either a Decware CSP-2+, WA2, or WA6/SE... I'm leaning towards the CSP-2+... anyone have any feedback or recommendations based upon the three amps that I mentioned?

 

Also, any recommendations for a DAC sub $400? (I'm thinking Bifrost....)

So, umm so guys, how do I convince my wife that I need a set of T1s? biggrin.gif She's very much opposed to >$1000 HPs.

Bifrost or Little Dot DAC 1, IMO. I snagged my LD lightly used for $200 and it's been great, very neutral and clean, and the LCD display and input options are first rate.

Get them for her as her valentine's day present.

That would backfire. She really likes headphones in general, she'd probably just switch to the T1s and I'd never get to wear them. blink.gif Right now she's Bogarting my HD598s and I haven't been able to listen to them for weeks.

Then buy two, that will solve the problem :)

Let her listen to them first :)

Here is a plan: show her more expensive phones to desensitize her then show her the T1 which will seem like a deal :)

Not sure how I can get them to her, I'll see if I can track down a T1 owner nearby.

I was researching them earlier and she walked by and looked over my shoulder and said:

"Those look dorky." To which I replied,
"I'm thinking about buying a pair."
"You already have a ton of headphones."
"I have eight pairs, that's not bad, and you hijacked one of my favorites."
"How much are these?" She points at screen.
". . . . about $1300."
... three second pause...
"Sorry babe, but that's nuts."

frown.gif

That's what I get for marrying someone 13 years younger than me.

I'm not defeated, though. I'll think of something.

Tell her that you found a dealer to take $300 off so they are only a grand on sale! (23% Discount!)

 

As to my amp question from earlier, I think I'm going to go ahead and just buy the csp2+ and call it a day.... Still seeking DAC recommendations sub $400....

Haven't lied to her yet, not going to start now. I'll call around and see what kind of deal I can get, I did find some like new - open box at Amazon for $1080, that's not bad.

I wasn't suggesting that you lie... I recently picked up a T1 new (well, it's still in the mail... will be here on Thursday) for $1000 shipped. Call around for a best deal... :)

post #2055 of 10479

they where 999 new on amazon that week during christmas/new years. i managed to find a used one in near mint for 869. that was a steal since now they never rarely dip below 999 used.

 

you can find 900 used on the for sale thread though.
