I'm leaning towards HE-500 or LCD2 as own a set of HD650's and T70's so interested in hearing a different manufacturer, however, the HD800's do get a lot of praise from you guys.

I have a feeling I would not be disappointed with any of them smily_headphones1.gif

No Fostex TH900??

We have a late entry into the ring!

 

They are the most expensive out of the pick - What do they bring to the table over the rest?

post #813 of 1485

im looking at selling HE-500 soon and buying TH-900, i think they're better than HE-500 and about as good as T1. very fun bassy headphone

Closed too, would be good for my office rig.

 

Thanks for all the input guys.  I will be crunching the numbers on the weekend for the tax return so if the gods are nice there might be 2 different sets coming my way, if they are not nice, its beans on toast for the next month :)

I made up my mind, im buying th-900 next week hopefully! Maybe even end of this week!

He-500 stays for now. Unless trevor ran away with my cable tongue.gif

$1499 @ Headroom & TTVJ via TH900 forum. Wow, what a great deal...tell us ur impression. I'm concentrated on getting a new amp now. The wallet is taking a beating.

Damn with the price reduction, it's tempting to order from the headroom/TTVJ and shipped it here but the LCD-3 still have my interest. Now its whether to spend on a new LCD3 or TH900confused_face.gif

I'm wanting to get a new pair of drive tubes for my WA6, and I'm just wondering what the difference is, in terms of sound, between the stock 6DR7's from Woo, and a pair of NOS RCA 6DE7's. Thanks.

Best thing to do is just buy some different tubes and given them a go, every one seems to have different opinions as to what they like and think they hear, i have a heap of tubes for sale still have half that i have not listed yet.

I bought a pair of NOS RCA 6DE7's from eBay. Hope I like them.

Exactly what redcat2 said.  No need to jump straight into the expensive tubes either, my first few buys were $10 to $20 pairs and started to try and pick up the subtle differences between different types.  After I found a tube type i liked (6SN7) i then started looking at different manufactures.

post #824 of 1485

Good advice, I just picked up a Brimar GZ32 and what an amazing tube for $20.  One could easily upgrade rec and driver for under $75 and it would be a huge improvement over stock.   Speaking from a WA6 amp owners perspective.

post #825 of 1485

yeah. alot of nos tubes are great over stock. i think most current production rectifiers suck especially the stock shuggie 274b that jack includes with the amps. i really like the sylvania 5U4G and philips 5r4gy which are both pretty cheap and really good.
