Review: Cavalli Liquid Lightning - Page 11

post #151 of 312

While the 007 are my favorite headphones ever look wise they didn't blow me away sound wise from the LL last time I heard them at the Texas meet. The 009s honestly have a pretty big hill to climb, but I'm ready to climb it if my ears like 'em.

I’ve always been underwhelmed by stats in meet conditions.

Well they were short impressions but I'd be weary to call them actual meet impressions. They were done in the back room where there was no one talking and no 'meet noise'. It was the bass. Something felt off. I would of course give them another try in my home if given the chance.

 

I am pretty excited to hear the 009s though just because it still seems so few have. Much less in their home.

Having the opportunity to audition the 009’s at home, you can count me green.

This is going to be brutal. Wish me luck, guys. Though I hope I don't turn into one of you simply for the sake of my wallet.

 

Once on the journey towards highend headphone listening, it's very difficult to turn back [ not that I'd ever want to ] simply because hearing music via headphones is very intoxicating, the only downside is it can be very expensive so that journey can be a long one. Best of luck on your journey MorbidToaster.

Start saving now, because you will really like the LL/SR-009 combo, I tried that combo in my home also. I found the LL to have the house sound of the LF, but what really makes this combo is the SR-009's.

Hi sillysally,

I have the BHSE on order and a friend of mine headfier IanG who lives a couple of miles from me has ordered the LL. I'm in the list that Justin's testing now so hopefully we'll receive our amps around the same time. When we do we're going to listen to both amps so it'll be interesting to hear the differences. However we'll be using different sources. When Ian has the LL I believe his headphone system  will be SR-009's + LL + Audio Synthesis Transcend and mine will be SR-009's + BHSE + K-01.

@sillysally, I'm aware you're also an SRM-727A owner. Could you care to elaborate the differences between the 727A & LL with the SR-009s? I'm sure a bunch of us SR-009 owners here in Tokyo are keen to hear your opinions.

post #159 of 312

I'm pretty eager to hear that as well as my spending plan if I decided to get it would consist of a lower cost amp in the meantime.

My LL should be here around mid next week, if Alex gets around to shipping it within the next couple of days. I am quite anxious to hear how the SR-009 will sound through it, compared to my current setup which involves a speaker amp and the Woo WEE. I'll post some photos and impressions once I get a chance to listen.

Really eager to hear your thoughts...and really eager to hear it for myself once Alex's 009s come in.

We should be seeing a few new owners receiving their amps here by end of next week i'd imagine . cool.gif

 

And i hear you on the chassis mwilson. The custom jacks are really cool, venting pattern is sweet as well. Very nice looking and seemingly well put together amp.

 

Will be nice to see an all solid state stat amp on the market. I've left mine on for 3 days straight with no issues or worries.

 

Can't say i'd even dare doing an overnight thing like that with a tube or hybrid amp :)

Many times I have left my bhse on for days at a time.
Justin burns them in for 1 continuous week.

Accidentally I left my t2 on for 4 days. Room sure was a bit warm.
I know 2 people that leave their GES on forever.
post #164 of 312

err..perhaps read my post again will you.

 

Said, wouldn't dare leaving it on. Doesn't equate to,  y'all don't dare to try either. I am just not comfortable leaving the house with tube circuits going. Makes sense or not, i just am not comfortable with it, especially so when i leave my dog occasionally, although she is with me 80% of the time.


If you are, go ahead by all means.

Woot! My LL is in the mail! Alex said I might even get it this Saturday. Keeping all 20 fingers and toes crossed.
