I'm trying to sell the AD2KX, not the regular 2K which I'm keeping.

Interesting. What differences do you hear between the two models?

It nearly looks like you're "Bi-amping" with the Decs. normal_smile%20.gif

It seems I keep following you.  Because I've got some upcoming changes to my rig, I've been looking into racks lately, and the Archetype is winning so far.  I've been thinking 1x 5 tier and 1x 3 tier.  They even make bookends that'll make it perfect for holding LP's.

 

Next I'll be trading my LCD's for HD800's (not likely) biggrin.gif

 

edit: I just noticed you got a Mac Mini wink_face.gif

Upgrade...The 2007 has bit the dust. Nice to have Thunderbolt and USB 3.0. I like the native 1TB drive too.

QHD650

 

My old LCD-2 Q-Audio cable converted for use with the HD650. "Earring" adapters courtesy of Steve Eddy. Miss the HD800 and even the LCD-2 at times. Hitting play usually remedies that though.

post #14856 of 19175

Any reason why you moved to the HD650 from the HD800 and LCD-2?

post #14857 of 19175

Probably nostalgia. Owned and loved the HD650 before moving up the chain. Bought it again and purged everything to see if I could get by. I enjoy it for the most part, though it is a significant drop from the HD800. I'm definitely conscious of the HD650's limitations.

how, where do you guys choose/download your music? Good hardware also need great music to go with it. Just want to learn from everyone.

I find that CDs are the most convenient.  You can get a high-end CD transport, or rip them to your computer in lossless.  Uncompressed 16/44.1 sounds pretty darn good to me, although, my $600 rig isn't anywhere near summit-fi smily_headphones1.gif I also get songs from Beatport for lossless dance tracks, and from HD Tracks when I can, 24-bit sounds fantastic. If I need to, I go through iTunes, but it's usually only if I absolutely have to have a certain song and a CD can't be easily obtained. I've recently started collecting some vinyl too, but I don't have a turntable yet, so I'll hold off on that being my primary listening method until I actually own a vinyl rig tongue.gif But even still, I don't think I'll completely switch to vinyl, given that not everything these days is released on vinyl. I'm pretty satisfied with my CDs and HD downloads.

Yeah I just started buying CDs again. Check out some used record stores, they usually have a decent selection and often used CDs are cheaper than iTunes (and better quality). I have a couple albums from HDTracks, one of them sounds noticeably better than 16/44.1 (Fleetwood Mac - Rumours), the other doesn't sound much better (Norah Jones - Come Away With Me), so it may be hit or miss.

Thanks for the reply.

 

How about rip from music DVD? Will that gives me better files? In 5.1?

Or, rip sound track from Blu-Ray music disc?

Yes you can do that. Most BD/DVDs have a 2.0 track embedded in them.

+1, I buy some on Amazon since they give me the mp3 rips as well which satisfies me enough until the CD get to me. smily_headphones1.gif
