Thanks...

 

Since moving from Cape Town to Italy we have down scaled the size of our house...I really need a music room again to put the Norh 9 marble speakers on their proper stands and give them some room to breathe..

Anyone have any experience with the Bifrost and V200? 

 

I plan on getting the V800 at some point, but do to financial reasons it wont all happen at one time.

did you use the hd650 with the violectric? still have them?

 

i love it with the violectric, it's dark, meaty and at the same time detailed, precise soundstage and musical, always amazes me for it's full range dynamic capability

 

the violectric really controls it with exceptional authority, like all the other headphones btw... ha, ha

 

i think that contribute to the smaller (or maybe just more dynamic in the technical sense of the term) soundstage

 

anyway just wanted to point out the rediscovered sensation of authoritarian control with the violectric (v800->xlr->v200 0dB pre-gain) since comparing it with the conductor, which is no slouch but the violectric seems untouchable in that regard

you can't go wrong with the v200, i find it more reference sounding when connected to the v800 over the higher output xlr connection, tho it works great with lower signals and bumping up the pre-gain, but again from the v800 xlr and at 0dB pre-gain it's untouchable

I did try the HD650 on the V200 and it was a gorgeous match...but I am totally in love with my HE-500 now...I may have found my soul mate!

post #2516 of 2847

Thanks roskodan. 

 

I would like nothing more than to get both of them at the same time, but it isnt going to happen. I just didnt want to get the v200 and be put off because of the Bifrost. I have had my eye on the v200 for a very long time.

If anyone of you that contacted Mr.Reim has more info about the V281, please add it to http://www.head-fi.org/t/705318/violectric-hpa-v281-vorsprung-durch-balanced

I hope everyone is doing well, anyway it's time for me to let go of the he500 and get something a little more bassy and comfortable. I have decided on the th900. What gain settings do I need to use for this headphone? Select -12 as it's a sensitive headphone or leave everything to off?
post #2519 of 2847

from my experience a lower gain gives more bass and fullness, less separation maybe, even more so using rca instead of the xlr inputs, tho Mr. Reim do not believe there is any difference except in volume

 

i usually A/B different settings on a couple of different tracks' segments

 

however it mostly depends on the input signal, source, maybe set on 0dB pre-gain and try what's better between the mdac rca and xlr outputs first, this will probably yield a bigger difference in sound
