New Balanced Schiit Amps? The information and anticipation thread. - Page 19

post #271 of 335

Thanks for the reply. Budget isnt an issue for me since I know the statement stuff isnt coming out until the end of the year. I'm definitely going to go SS with the Amp, because i'm too lazy to do tube rolling.

 

If only the LCD-2s were ruthenium clad....

After reading so much about headfi gear over the past year couple of years, I don't see much at all written about the Edition 8's. They are really expensive and look great but for some reason I just don't see people raving about them in the same way as Hifimans, the T1's or even HD650 or K70x,s.

I would agree that whatever cans you get and decide on then go balanced.

I forgot to include the Audeze's. They are probably the most talked about cans IMO.

I don't know much about them either. Reason I didn't include a comment on them for JH going balanced.

I would equate them similarly with the Fostex 900. High price tag and underwhelming performance. (Just based on others comments)

Unlike the TH900 though, the Ultrasones are just bad.

Off topic: But is there a headphone $2000 + worth it? (excluding Stax)

"Worth it" is subjective, but I think of the Audez'e LCD-3, as well as vintage headphones like the Sony R10, Qualia, etc.

 

Also, the Ultrasone Ed. 10 are in that price range, although I don't know many Ultrasone fans and never heard the headphones myself.

Which in turns effects our work force and thus economy and that doesn't even make you think at all? 

 

The vast and I do mean VAST majority of this market dealing with headphone amps and DAC's is built in China. Hell , even the vast majority of headphones we use are built in China ..so us celebrating being able to buy from an American company a product that is made in America in a affordable price range is somehow economically racist?

 

 

 

LOL, if you think "outsourcing" is responsible for the fiscal collapse of our country/economy, you need to open your eyes/ears. On a scale of 1-10 (10 bearing the most responsibility), outsourcing would probably be a 3. End thread derail.....

 

I have a Lyr/Bifrost combo right now as my bedroom setup and looking eagerly awaiting this release. Sucks that Schiit is in CA, means I have to pay state sales tax. Does anyone know if Schiit allows pickups? I live like 30 minutes away.

Better to pay tax than international freight. At least you get to go to headfi meets as well.

Oh IC where you're going.  What's with all the hype around the Bryston lately?  Does it make Cappuccinos?  Seems to have mixed reviews.

Exactly, that's why I think that their new $1300 balanced SS headamp should be a fairly easy target for the $750 Mjolnir.

Is the Bryston out yet? I am a Schiit fan but a good friend is a full blow Bryston junkie. Would love to read a review.
