Did you like the LCD-2 that much? Which Woo did you hear them on?

Also, just ordered Heir Audio 4.Ai"+", can't wait to get them. Buck Eye Burl wood.

 

This hobby is going to cost costing me..

Yes, Martin is listening to them tonight to see what he thinks.. This is a quote from him when I asked him the same question," I'm going to try them as closed first.  The hole in the stock cups is much smaller than you think, so I should be able to just add bass holes if needed."

Cheers

I'll be curious how he tunes them compared to the old Darth Beyers...

And, yes, it is a great DAC for the money.

 


This is also a great clean power alternative.  At $32 it made a huge difference in sound quality, mainly the bass.

I forgot to take a pic but I must have looked quite the sight with my HE-500s on while driving the 40 hours to and from San Antonio and the OC last week. I have a 350 watt inverter that powered my MiniMax amp briantly which was stashed under the drivers seat, I was afraid that the tubes might be a little noisy with the road movement but as far as I could tell they were quiet. I did get a couple of double takes as I passed people with these huge cans on my head, but boy was I happy biggrin.gif

It was a bit difficult to put the poly on so that it layered completely flat without texturing in certain areas.

Thanks, I will try that with a project I have in mind, how do you think that will turn out with a somewhat more darker wood? That might get it even more beautifull won't it?

You know that driving with headphones on in Texas is illegal right?
