Some has to be crude and say it.... So I guess I might as well.

No-one likes a Saggy Rack.

It's a mechanical keyboard right?

very interesting story miki, here we also say lampa or lampe in plural which is slang for tubes. Seems like a universal word for Balkan and it seems for far east as well.

This is a very enjoyable setup. I think I prefer Asus Xonar Essence One over Woo Audio WA6-SE and Grace Design m903 with the LCD-3s. More powah!

So you're the who actually bought the Essence!! eek.gif jk

 

It's interesting that you prefer it to the WA6, which is very highly regarded. Very interesting.

No stone should be left unturned in the search for high fidelity :D

 

Well, One > WA6SE was an overstatement, the WA6SE is preferable on some recordings but land behind on others. It's much smoother and doesn't control the bass as well as the Essence One. When I run elektronica like "Trentemoller" on One vs WA6-SE Beyerdynamic T1 sounds much wider and more controlled imo. The bass just consumes you. When I compared them I had a couple of RCA 6DE7 tubes in Woo + Mullard GZ37 rectifier, (military with brown base/raf markings). The T1's gets harsh on higher volumes on some types of music, so Woo is a better alternative for that. On electronica where things don't pierce your ears I'd definitely go with Xonar. :) I also like to run HD 650 and HD 600 on One. More defined and controlled bass, just like with LCD-2 r1/LCD-3/T1. The highs on HD 650 are pretty smooth too, so you can play them really loud on One without problems.

 

I'll be getting some opamps which enables me to switch things up a bit in the coming days, can't wait! :D

 

I relate a lot to most of this review of Xonar Essence One with LCD-2. I run bit perfect from foobar through ASIO and have flashed the unit with the latest firmware.
