UE10 & LCD-2 splitting time with M8

Thanks! Yup, general impressions are about the same.  That was exactly my thoughts after about 4 hours when it smoothed out.  My Lyr sounded somewhat tubey and the WA7 is more refined and detailed without the lushness.  I recently had a chance to listen to the CSP 2+ and really liked the sound.  Wish I had more time with it. Was hoping that the WA7 was somewhere between the CSP and SS. Even more SS sounding with the EH tubes so I'm thinking the Sovtek tubes may do it for me. Really liking it so far.

What are your general impressions? Ive demoed it a couple times and thought it was very "neutral solid state" sounding. Rather unremarkable actually (which is a good thing for an amp IMO).

Nice! I don't think I'd get any sleep if I had a really good bedside rig.

I come back from a couple days of camping and look what I find!!! Fantastic! I know you are enjoying the family OPR8R....

Sweet MV! It has been fun watching your journey.

I've been lurking on this site for quite a while. Here is a pic of my bedside rig:



The HD650 is driven by an old X-Can v2 with some nice Siemens tubes. The Squeezebox touch gets FLACs in normal and hi res from my NAS (I have two more SB's elsewhere in the house). The Marantz SA KI Pearl lite is used as a DAC by the SB, and of course for playing SACDs. (In the hp out of the SACD player an ATH-M50 is connected, useful for listening when my wife is on the room, or for connecting to the iPad to watch some Netflix.)

Thanks.  Still have a few more nights of break-in, but I'm pretty happy so far.  :D

Sennheiser PX100-ii with a CEntrance Dacmini PX... because pairing a $50 headphone with a $1k amp is what we do around here :rolleyes:

 

Sitting in between is my Focusrite VRMbox, which is actually a pretty nice little amp and speaker/room simulator rolled together.

Better than a 1000 dollar can on a 50 buck amp:)

 

Where did you get the focusrite?

The Focusrite VRMbox is part of the "pro audio" world, so it should be readily available at any music shop/guitar centre/etc. I don't even remember where I got mine from (think it might have been part of a trade a long time ago), but I know Long & McQuade carries them for something like $99.

 

I actually really like the PX100-ii paired with the VRMbox. It's obviously not super resolving and it's a bit thick in the bottom end, but it's groovy :)

Weclome to head-fi! 

 

Thats a classic set up you've got there with the Xcan and 650's.

The last iteration of My Head-fi station and first pic here !

Antique sound labs MG Head ( NOS Siemens 12AX7 and soon a pair of NOS TElefunken EL84) / Meier Corda Jazz

Did a quick search and it was surprisingly absent from hits in Canadian Vendors. I'll have to do a direct LM site search. I have the 200 and its NC brother so It may be worth a whirl.
