Grats on the Darkstar Musicman. I'm jealous.
post #587 of 678

Man...There's 2 amps on my list that I have to listen to soon or I'm just going to have to give up.

 

Dark Star, and Liquid Fire. 

 

Seeing as I'll be getting the loaner Liquid Fire soon I need to find a way to get my hands on a Dark Star now...

 

Someone in AUstin buy one!

Did anyone try out the Red Wine Audio Corvina headphone amp? I don't think I have seen anyone mention it here.

post #589 of 678

do people bring their own headphones so they can at least pretend to normalize their listening experience or do you just listen to whatever is at any booth?  I was thinking it made sense to bring your own gear but then thought that would be annoying...

Sure no reason not to bring headphones, but trying to sample with sources with your own amp and headphones can be cumbersome.

I'd have been lugging around my LCD 2 in the travel case. I know Audeze cans were everywhere, but I'd want my own when listening to a new amp or source.

I tried the Corvina at the ALO table.  Used it with an LCD-2.  It sounded nice, but really nothing to write home about.  Wasn't that impressed.  Vinnie is coming to the NY meet next month though, so hopefully I can give it a longer listen this time around.

I had my HE-6 with me.  That's why you see a purple cable in a few of the CanJam pictures I took.

You lost me,  what do you mean by no crossover? Would not crossover be a source related thing, not a headphone related thing?

Have you heard the HE6 and if so do you think the HE6 has crossover?

A planar headphone uses a single full range driver.  No crossover needed.  Almost all speakers use multiple drivers, and have a passive crossover between the different drivers to make sure the drivers only see the frequencies that they are supposed to.

And the most natural sounding loudspeakers are the ones with no crossovers. It is most obvious on vocals.

Can you list some loudspeakers with no crossovers?  

 

post #598 of 678

They are few and far between.  Some speakers made using Fostex full-Range drivers, a very few full-range electrostats like the big Acoustats.

The decware speakers use a ribbon planar magnetic tweeter and 8 inch driver no crossover

Decware is now building several, all of the full-range electrostatics, Anthony Gallo Stradas, Aero powered speakers, Tektonic, Zu Audio, Tonian, the latest Totum Element speakers, and Omega speakers, to name a few. There are a lot of DIY kits out now to build your own. I would love to try the one that Decware pushes, but they are now out of stock on those expensive full-tange drivers. I believe you will see this trend more and more.

 

I have the Gallo Stradas, those are as good as everyone is saying.
