Very nice.  How do you like it?

 

Mine should arrive next week.

I really like the sound, and that they sound really good from anything and everything I've tried them with.

 

For me personally the fit is a bit weird, but I'm apparently in the minority.

 

Really glad I've got them, especially now that the price has started climbing since they've been discontinued.

That's a very nice looking set of cans.

On the topic of vintage amps, I'm considering upgrading my center piece, it doesn't seem to be doing my loudspeakers justice anymore. It sometimes doesn't push out sound to one or both channels when I turn it on and I have to twist the volume knob all around. I'm looking for something decently budget, sub 200$, vintage preferred, with enough inputs and able to fit in the space I have my current receiver in. Tubes would be awesome.

Edit, MUUUUST have built in phono amp

I'm probably gonna repost that in the vintage amps thread.

Something like this:  http://www.amazon.com/CAIG-DeoxIT-D100S-2-Spray-oz/dp/B004GE8E6S/ref=sr_1_12?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1397493690&sr=1-12&keywords=deoxit+cleaners+for+electronics#productDetails

 

sprayed into the volume knob opening and twisting the knob back and forth might be just the ticket.  Prolly just dirty.

The following Deoxit thread linked will likely solve your issues.

deoxit plus possibly a few hundred twists(ya sometimes it takes that many) does magic for pots and all controls, so do pipe cleaners in combination.

alright I'll try this first before dropping 200$ on a new amp, would anyone be kind enough to link exactly which one on amazon I should get? Smaller and cheaper the bottle the better.

Do you have a Radio Shack nearby? Radio Shack should carry a small bottle.

Update on the portable setup. Replaced my old Bose IE's with Fidelio S2's and the difference is huge.

This is one of those setups that's really nice to have in an urban environment, where you can listen to music the way you want without fear of theft. The few brief times I ever brought my old T5p outdoors, I was paranoid that they'd be stolen, even though I know that the average thief would target Beats and such instead.

While I wait for my Auralic Taurus MkII. Sounds way better than it should!
