Is this the HE-500 thread, or a spelling and grammar intervention? tongue.gif

 

 

 

 

 

Was lucky enough to snag up a pair of Denon Dx000 pads, and I slapped these guys on the HE-500. I'm very very much enjoying the sound here. Anyone else done this? 


it sounds like it huh? but they mean well...eventhough they know its just my 4th language...

 

about the pads...if i am not mistaken i think jerg tried them out also..but i can be wrong...and he preferred the jergmodded pads.

 

nooooo...cant..i..arrrgggg..have...to....control.... nooooo...plssss....helllppppp..no emoticon..NOOOOO..

 

.wow..i really did it..a complete post without a emoticon.... lolz...the mega HDD dude did it..... hehehe

For those that tried multiple pads, did you guys like the Denon pads or the Audeze pads better with HE-500.

Prepro has put these pads on everything. I wouldn't be surprised if he tried to put them on some Iems! 

 

 

Interesting Jerg tried it, hopefully he'll chime in a bit. So far I've got stock velours, stock pleathers, mad dog pads, and Denon pads. I'd be interested to see how the jerg compares to those, as I've never tried them.

Another one to look at would be unRaid - a Network Attached Storage server operating system that boots from a USB Flash device and specifically designed for digital media storage.

u know me so well already..hehehehe

 

and thanks for the emoticons..ur to good... lolz

 

my main languages are dutch and portuguese..then german..and THEN english..so u can consider urselves as my substitute english teachers.. hehehehe

 

and GUYS..ABOUT THOSE SUGGESTIONS CONCERNING EXTRA (MEDIA) DRIVES FOR DUBSTEPGIRL.eventhough i know all ur advices are meant well....i know from experience that whats simple for us..could be complete chinese for others...

 

DUBSTEPGIRL..my honest advice (i have built many systems and networks in my time for many people by the way) find a nice friend who is a (real deal) computergeek who knows his stuff....buy the stuff together WITH him...and let HIM built it for u..with u close by..so u can learn a thing or two for later...

 

in my opinion still easiest way: buying a hdd docking station (20euro), connect it to ur pc by usb..stick hdd in...push on-off button....AND DONE...no configurations...and its cheaper...

 

if i was closerby i would certainly help u out... for free....for a cup of hot coffee and a bisquit ofcourse..u only had to buy the hardware  and the rest... ...

 

but am sure u know somebody in ur neighborhood ..or maybe one of ur tube buddies? ask them... if ur not a computer geek its always easy to **** things up.. especially with the configuration...

I think that's a good decision.  Much more centralized, safe, and better access overall, IMO.

Also, DSG.  My TEAC 501 arrived this morning.  Now I know what you meant by the mytek removing the "veil" from your HE500.  I bought the 501 based on a few reviews/threads stating that the 501 is very similar to the mytek, just with a touch less resolution.  It's great so far.

Good idea, but don't load up on too many hard drives right now. Just expand as you need it. For the same price that you get a 2TB right now, in a couple years you might be able to get a 10TB.

I didn't notice this as the cable was hidden behind a shroud to make the case look neat and tidy. Took me some time to figure out why the PC didn't want to play nice anymore. I am fortunate that my PC didn't die. Not to mention that today's ATX cases are all large and clunky. So I've converted my PC back into a mini-ITX chassis and now it plays nice and quiet. 


Still enjoying the Emotiva mini-x amp and it has great clarity with low volumes too which is a bonus. I do miss the warmth and smoothness of the PS2 amp though, though it doesn't have as much slam and dynamics. Think it is time to build a cable for HE-500 with XLR adapters so I can alternate between the two amps. Then I can listen to the Emotiva while drinking a beer and the Sunrise 2 while sipping a whisky! I love excellent budget gear, allows you to have something of everything. The stakes are much higher with expensive gear!
Doesn't the PS2 have a line out? If you used it as a preamp wouldn't you get the best of both amps?

sigh, I just couldn't do it :/  

 

I put up my He-500 on sale for a few days, and I just took it out of the box to listen to them one more time. 

 

I quickly took my ad down lol I'm going to keep these as my critical listening headphones..

What does the he500 do makes you keep changing your mind?
post #6734 of 14628

Keep HE500 and buy one more. lol

post #6735 of 14628

Just got an e-mail that my HE-500 order was picked up by FedEx in Hong Kong. Another week............. eek.gif
