Well after all the ridicule about my headphones being inadequate I sold the amp and dac.

 

After taking some suggestions on board I am now proud to present my LCD-2 + Nexus 4/ FiiO E05 stack.

 

 

It was a bit quiet at first so i bought new cables and now its all good! Thanks Head-Fi for your great advice!

Probably a great way of wasting electricity :D

post #10445 of 18625

At one point I wanted to strip out the drivers from the Beats Studio and replace them with something better (possibly an ortho), then replace the noise cancelling circuit with a small amp. 

 

It's a backburner project that I might still do someday, though I'm just not willing to fork out the money for the shell. Even the fakes aren't so cheap anymore, and their build quality is atrocious (moreso).

Much better priorities!

Ridiculous as in overkill or iBuds, Dre Beats sort of thing?

post #10450 of 18625

Could be a ridiculous cable, could be a ridiculous price tag, or an overkill etc. Something to laugh at

Yeah prep, not too ridiculous though, perhaps such as Diamond DAC IV > DarkStar > Dre Beats or DacMini > Millett 307A > iBuds tongue.gif

I wonder if those pictures of the modded iBuds with IE8 drivers and piccolino wires are still around.

How about using a car inverter to power an amplifier to run an HE-6?

post #10454 of 18625

I believe the HE-6 can only be run effectively from a portable fusion bottle.

 

Actually, I believe the below is a leaked photo from HiFiMan's new amp research department:

Quick window shot on a rainy day in Dallas.  Hard to arrange because my office has a bay window and no straight walls.  Nice because it looks out over the forest leading to Lake Grapevine - very relaxing.  The other listening station is in a window seat by the pool, with the amp sitting in the window on foot-thick walls (ICF house).  The WBQHS (whiz-bang quick headphone stand) is an embarrassment, but I have a nice slab of black walnut to make a new one someday.  Very pedestrian setup, but I enjoy it.  Nothing has ever been able to touch the Stax that I bought new a very, very long time ago when, for a brief moment, they were the best in the world.  The small box is unrelated - it is used for home automation programming.
