That's all !

You should play 'Battle Stations' by Winger every time you show somebody this part of your rig.

I like the sound of the apogee and the motu uses the same AD/DA chips as some RME products. The Presonus does the job, does't seem to colour anything which makes me happy, the only down side is 20 Hz to 20kHz frequency range which i leaves me feeling i'm not hearing the full potential of the HD 650.

 

(Sorry about the picture quality, i only use an iPhone 4)

 

 

    

Maybe I don't know because I'm new, but why would 20hz-20khz not let your HD650's reach their full potential? As far as I know that is the human hearing range.

Musically they make everything sound good, professionally i think they accurately tell the truth. I really like the front facing bass ports too, rear facing in a small room to me just isn't a great idea.

Once they are back in a treated room, before getting the Adams i think my first priority is a sub-woofer.

 

 

Nice ogg,

 

I've had mine for a while and think they're great.  Lots of options now with powered speakers, but I'm happy with 'em.  Have the E-MU 0404 USB connected to them (balanced) and the WA2 (SE).

 

Good times!

No, you're right, that is the human hearing range.

 

Some people believe you can feel higher and lower frequencies even if you can't hear them (certainly true for low bass), but 20-20 certainly shouldn't be holding anything back for your actual hearing unless you're a dog :)

The Hd 650's response is 10 Hz to 30 something kHz it's just out of my own personal curiosity to feel more than hear frequencies between 10 and 20 Hz mostly to understand if i could feel those frequencies with headphones. Not really for music as standard CD quality is 20 Hz to 20 kHz if i remember correctly, it's more for recording purposes and eliminating sub harmonic frequencies at higher sample rates which can just mess things up. 

Musically i am getting their full potential as i don't really believe yet that the 650's are that hard to drive from things such as an apogee one or even the headphone out on a macbook / iPhone and their sensitivity is quite high. That to me suggests easy to drive headphones even from a USB voltage.

 

I just want to play with lower frequencies for experimental purposes and i can't afford room treatment or a sub to get those kinda frequencies on speakers yet.

I like your set-up, very neat and elegant looking. I like the stands too. I think when it comes to near-field speakers it's more personal taste than anything else for which ones to choose and i really like the KRK sound tho would love a set of VXT's.

This may not be an option for you as it isn't for me either but keeping them 2 feet away from the wall behind them improves the SQ due to reflections and what not, well so i have read.

Good to know I remember my audio theory classes, right? Haha!

I would have thought a good near-field monitor would be designed to work near a wall out of necessity/practicality...

Current setup! Just got the m80s, wearing them with glasses is tricky but I love everything else about them

With a front facing bass port yeah, they should be. it's just something i have read and seen done by a dozen or so audio engineers, tho i didn't take note if the bass ports on the monitors used were rear or front facing, tho i remember the odd pair of VXT's.

 

I haven't read the science behind it in full yet so not sure if its just nonsense but i have noticed a difference for myself with a gap a few inches shorter than a foot. I wish i had proper acoustic treatment in my room but i'm not allowed to put any up.

I have seen folks strip it off, If I recall correctly they used something odd like oven cleaner.

If you ask nicely, Jaben can sell you a plain uncoloured one. Should shoot Uncle Wilson a PM as he is the head of Jaben's and might set you up on a possible deal with a silver cup.

It works real good at removing anodizing.  I've done it many times.

post #14220 of 18387
Nice...the burning question now is, how easy is it to re anodize?
