New member.. (updated)

New to high end audio equipment (never had the funds), but not to high quality audio in general.

Thought I'd start off with this:

Let me know if this is in the incorrect sub-section.

btw, looking forward to learning more from the sr. members and other informative members. thanks for all your help so far..

[*UPDATE*]

Just a little update I figured some people might be interested in...(sorry for the grainy iphone 4 pics, but it's all I have at the moment)

Behringer 3031A's (matching 2092A to come)

Certainly a nice way to start!  Just got a pair of my own a couple days ago.

Thanks mate.

 

Yeah, they arrived sometime this morning while i was at work. Found them on my front porch just sitting there in plain view to be nicked, made me sick, haha.

 

Just started breaking them in.  These things are really sweet, just gave me chills when i heard the piano portion of Damien Rice's 9 Crimes..

 

Can't wait to listen to all of my library over again with a "new ear" so to speak.

 

I'm using the mav d1, can anyone recommend an opamp that would more properly suit the characteristics of the hd650's before i got to a higher end tube later on?

post #5 of 26

No idea about the amp, but if you leave the phones running overnight for a couple of nights, I personally find it to improve vastly. I hated my HD600 out the box, but with burn in, it gets a lot better. Some pink music would do it's job too.

newbie with HD650? thats a good (expensive) start lol.

post #7 of 26

off to a great start... HD650's are no joke.

Bad choice noob. The HD650 sucks. It's veiled, slow and boring. All the members who've preferred it over other current flagships are just spreading lies to laugh at people like you. Sucker! wink.gif

LOL'd. If that comes from me, a Senn-basher, it would actually be a real criticism. :p

 Well said! And since everyone secretly hates them, you won't even be able to re-sell them for a decent price. Believe me, there's just nowhere to go with 650s.

Good set to build around. Get to a meet and listen to some quality tube amps with them. Also try some other's re-cable to hear if any differences sound good to you.

 

Welcome to Head Fi and sorry for your wallet. wink.gif

Much appreciative.  And the wallet's fine, that's what their made for, right? :)

 

Don't think I'm going to delve into the cable business (at least financially speaking) unless a great deal comes my way.  I need to improve my amp before anything else will become apparent.  I like the D1 and all and it's quite powerful for a starter option. Definitely need to try these out at some local shops and meets if there any in my area.

 

edit: oh yea, and they're starting to warm up..sounds delightful with a little more mid to lower bass response..love it.
