post #12106 of 18925

I've been doing that recently since we're looking at new apartments. Grace is pissed that I keep shooting down potential apartments due to acoustics, but I'm not having this rig sound bad, damn it. :D

 

Plan on getting some panels for the new place, too. Doing it proper.

Detail isn't there, but I'll be damned if it's not a ton more toe tappin'. The freedom to move is nice, the ability to share it is great, and the soundstaging is just a stupid amount better.

 

Dropping that needle and hearing that initial wall of sound is wonderful.

 

Unfortunately for me, I may not be able to use speakers. Or it could take a year or two. My first move back into town will be temporary and may involve others, until I find a job and my own place. I'm considering moving up to the Stax Class. But for the same amount of dough, I wanna return to speakers.

 

Toe tapping and freedom to move are HUGE. In fact, I'd be satisfied with cans if my toes tapped. This is what I love about my D7000 - not perfect, but does allow me musical enjoyment well into the night...

Panels aren't too hard to make yourself.  I'll try to find the "recipe" I've used in the past and send it your way.  MUCH cheaper that way.

MT, I found a nice fixer upper. The brochure says good acoustics....

 

 

 

Hope the Leben can fill it out....biggrin.gif

I've found a few ways online but they generally make pretty thick panels.

 

Any recommendations would be great.

Speakers are more enjoyable for sure, but what would be the best soundstage/speaker like headphone? Would that be the akg k702 anniversary?

Best I have ever heard that I would call "Speaker Like" are the Sennheiser HD800's.

Woohoo, Colour of Spring, outstanding. Hollis and Friese-Greene knew how to produce an album. Wish Hollis would let loose another solo, he was taking minimalism to its extreme.

I've heard the level 4 only and there is nothing remotely even close to it even a few other DAC's in the 5 digit range. Since I've pretty much hit my nirvana my next focus is getting the BHSE here and the Lampizators.

I don't know where else to ask this, but, is it possible to use a FiiO E7 as a DAC for my iPhone? Like a line-out to miniUSB? Or am I stuck using the iPhones DAC until I get something better?

 

These two posts juxtaposed on top of each other makes me giggle a little bit.

I sanded it down to get to the bare wood as it had been stained before. Then I used 1 layer of ebony wood stain (1 so it wouldn't turn out too dark that you can't see the grain). Then finished it off with 3 layers of satin polyurethane, sanding it down with 400 grit sandpaper between each layer. It was a bit difficult to put the poly on so that it layered completely flat without texturing in certain areas.
