Very nice!  You don't see the hd700 so often. Is that a small dent in the mid plate of the outside of the driver?

Yep that is small dent.

I will not change out the amp, because I love Crack :biggrin: But I am looking for another dac. Want to turn up the SQ a bit. I think they do blend well. At least to my ears. Stock tubes were RCA 12AU7 and RCA6080 as usual, but I changed them to CBS5814A and GE 6AS7GA and now I am waiting for my Tung-Sol/Chatham 5998 tube. I read that 5998 and CBS5814A tubes pair really well. My stock 6080 tube was really microphonic and with stock 12au7 the HD700 had treble spike. Now it is dead silent and everything is well.

This looks pretty sleek to me. I was wondering what is the device which shows Pont 96k?

I am trying to see what is that amp/block next to the headphone? And what speakers are these? I read multiple pages after these but couldn't find any further reply from Synthax to see what those are.

 

Thanks.

Well, this is my old setup. It was vintage but great Philips CD104 Player, Crimson 610C preamplifier, Crimson 620C power amplifier and Rehdeko Rk115 french, very effective speakers. Very nice setup indeed, but actually my setup is far more better: Pioneer PD9700 transport, Lampizator Level 4 dac and Espressivo preamp, Crimson 620C power amp and open baffle speakers:

Wow, that's beautiful. All the white in the room and on the equipment makes it seem almost minimal despite the enormous size of the speakers themselves.

Thanks for the information. Your new setup looks very sleek.

so I finally got a decent camera so I thought I might as well try it out with my audio gear with the following result:

How do you compare Violectric to Tube Amp sound?

post #18669 of 19212

Hey, I don't mean to bother you. But how can I make a new thread? I'm new to this site and its layout.

post #18670 of 19212

from what I can remember, the violectric v200 had a pretty "tuby" sound, in the end I was rather disappointed in the hdvd800 with the lcd-x. I reckon soundwise the violectric came rather close to the studio six actually, although it has been so long since I heard it. Can't AB test anymore. I do remember the V200's bass extension wasn't as good as the tube amp, but not bad either. V200 probably is one of the best amps I have heard for the HD800 and after getting the hdvd800 I kinda missed its sound signature, so ended up with tubes.

Select a forum in the header, for example "Headphones" and then just below the forum name is "Start a new thread".

At this point I'd love to hear the v200 and compare it with my setup

I went with the Senn amp for my HD800 when I compared it with the V200. The Violectric rolled off the treble of the HD800 too much for me, but it does sound sweet and lush, so it is easy to see why many would like the sound of it.

Funny thing, I just got the deal of my life on a V200 and V800 for $1000. They get here this week and I'll post pictures when I get the chance! :biggrin:
