The discovery thread.! NEW DannyBai's take on the new Yamaha EPH M200 PG 1769!! - Page 1533

post #22981 of 27033
OK, just getting to Dogwalk Discoveries!!!
First,it's almost Sunday, time for services


Some old time Gospel calls for some old time blues, piano blues, that is...


Power Pop/Punk Pop fans, my 15 year old's contribution to my musical education...

Listened to the studio version of this, nice, but this live version will certainly do...

First take On unboxing and putting in the Sony XBA-H3's...OH NO, another fit-nightmare, hope I can find tips that work, the small selection Sony includes aren't cutting it.

Last early impression on JVC Woodies...not too bad a fit despite large body size, chambers. Large,mwide soundstage, phenomenal bass, treble there, coming long as I listen, likely smooth after break in. Upper mids slightly recessed, female vocals very slightly distanced. Have to take them out to break them in, but don't feel like taking them out yet...bigsmile_face.gif

One of my test tracks for every headphone/earphone is "Shambala" by Beastie Boys.  Try that out with the FX850's.  There's a lot going on in the music and sounds great with a headphone/earphone that can showcase the depth and layering that's in the music.

Fabulous Metheny, had to be played real time, no one could "lip-sync" (?guitar-sync) that, Bravo!

That's great, listened on Mog, JVCs sound great on these. Want to go to the source, really great recording? Olatunji, "Drums of Passion", Track Jin-Go-Lo-Ba.
Time to crash...

Listened to a few tunes from Olatunji this morning doctorjazz. I will be adding the music to my collection. Good way to start out the day.

glad you liked Olatunji, Drums of Passion.  Olatunji was my live drum teacher for years at the ESALEN institute in Big Sur CA.  he was the "ambassador of drums"

and a true messenger of peace through music rhythm and dance!   and that album is a great recording.

OK, non headphone purchase, my main rig preamp, Krell KSL, bit the dust. Repair more than it was worth anymore. Called a local dealer, had a Peachtree Gread Pre, hybrid tube/solid state preamp with good internal 24/192 DA converter, list $3500, was able to get demo for about $2000. Listening to All Time Low "Nothing Personal", can't stop dancing, think I'll keep it (got 30 days to return if need be). The Absolute Sounds recommended it, for those keeping track. As it is discontinued, may be able to find good deals if one is looking for something like this.

Preliminary, out of box H3 vs JVC Woodie, really different presentations, almost like the old tube vs solid state electronic descriptions. JVC 3D, lush, visceral, tube like, Sony open, detailed, smooth, nothing calls attention to itself, but lots there. More later...
