To be honest..not really.not with the mstage...and with this i will probably jump on somebodies foot biggrin.gif but..i loved the he300 more on the mstage then the he400..the he400 was more of everything of the 300..as the he 400 has a more pronounced and more agressive tremble.and a deeper going bass...the he300 is more laidback and dark..maybe its because its a dynamic phone...thats also why i sold the he400 in 3 months time and went for the he500.. But then again..its how i felt..both phones are excellent in their own way...if u like strong tremble and deep rumble u will like he400..i prefer a bit dark and natural and balanced sound ...the he400 has a v-form sound signature...

Haha, that seems to be what I gather from reading around here and elsewhere. The he-300 does appear to be better for the price since it's most frequently compared to the hd600/650 etc, no doubt due to  the darker sound sig. Thanks.

Very nice (never modest with the legends that are the 650's!). Love the cabernet.

I like it a lot! I love how the M-stage and ODAC match with black bodies and sliver front plates. I won't even think about upgrading at all unless I go for something really high end, like the LCD3 or Hifiman HE-600 with a heavyweight amp. Maybe a few years from now.

 

The setup is perfect for me though. The M-stage and HE400 are a great pairing because the amp is on the warm side, while the HE400 can be a little cold with it's treble spikes. Together they slightly tame the treble, I have yet to experience any fatigue or piercing highs in all my music collection, and I have a lot of badly recorded mainstream songs. Perhaps Im not too sensitive to it. Bass is also very satisfying. I won't say much more about the sound since I don't have much basis for comparison but all I can say is that I love the sound. There's not one genre I've tested that doesn't sound good.

 

You'll be really happy with this setup no doubt.

I love Philips. A grand Dutch company.

Their vacuum tubes are some of the best made in Europe.

Yup. Themselves and Sony produced the first cd players. I remember my dad getting a Philips cd player in the early 80's.... Don't think he liked it much If I remember. He had a fab turntable at the time.

This year was actually the 30th anniversary of the first release of the consumer CD players, and my Dad actually got the first three CDP form factors reunited.  There was actually a third in addition to the Philips (top-loader) and Sony (tray/drawer) models.  The third form factor (vertical loading) was one that was licensed to multiple brands like Dual and Denon.

 

Here's some pictures:

 

The Dual:

700

 

The Philips:

700

 

The Sony:

I'll try to post some actual pictures of his room when I get back over to his house sometime soon.  It's kinda neat to see all the gear he's got.

I'd love to see that thanks. Yeah my dad has had some great gear over the years, shame he didn't keep it all though. He always part-ex'd his stuff when he upgraded. He now has a modern set up of Arcam and Cambridge Audio. (he is 75 though and hasn't got much hearing left bless..:)

No, i built a small kitchen with an american bar (cocktail bar? I'm not sure how to say in english) in my bedroom, like that i can eat or brush my teeth when i'm too lazy to go upstairs haha

 

Tip: the other is in the audio player window reflection, and it's not really a product but a box of a product ;)

 

P.S.: i can't use the "insert picture" thing because of a server issue problem, is it normal?
