Just wait 'til you get more time with it...I'm pretty sure you'll be amazed the new things you notice here and there in old tracks ;-)

 

By the looks of it, my amp wasn't involved in the accident at all.

 

I let it run for a couple hours while I worked.  Then I let it sit for an hour.  Then I quit work early to listen a little more.  This amp is quite good.  I'm having a lot of fun smily_headphones1.gif

Congrats OPR8R! It will get better after you get passed 50-100 hours....Things really settle in nicely!

Thanks!

 

I read that "50+ hours burn-in" somewhere else too and was a little surprised.  I don't doubt it though.  I'm expecting it to take a while, especially since I opted for the V-caps, but it already sounds different (better) than it did a couple days ago.

Strike up the band! My Taboo and my HD800s showed up today. That effectively ends my trail of tears waiting on all my goodies until I place my speaker order!

I believe he has the Peachtree DACiT, but I could be mistaken.

Ha (bangs head)! You're right. I should've thought to look at his profile first
post #1072 of 1207
Yes, I really liked the Sabre sound with the HD800s. The Peachtree is a great value and offers optical in. I am sure there are better options, but it will be a long while before I go exploring.

Well, I was going off memory, so I didn't think of that either. No need to bang your head.

Oh I don't know - sometimes it seems to help...sometimes others do it for me :-D

Jazzerdave, slightly OT - what did you think of piano reproduction when you had the LCD3s? (I used to play a lot of classical. Not so much these days).

I am selling my Taboo MKII is anyone is interested.  I really love it but I have too many amps.

Oh, boy, can I relate to that!

I am undecided between the mini-torii and taboo. How does these two compare exclusively for the LCD-2?

At last asking, about a year ago, no-one had directly compared. From separate reports though, both work very well with LCDs according to owners of each.

Worth thinking about is that taboo just got made over specifically for LCD and an introductory discount may still be running and new owners in the Taboo III thread find it works well with other phones too.

Of course both amps run speakers as well.

Steve Deckert seems to be refreshing many of his amps. Could be worth asking (phone him - he's not so good with email enquiry) whether the MT is among them.

Hmmmm....(Struggling with this concept....)  What? 

 

Just because you have two other DREAM amps (Leben/SLI-80) why would you sell this one?  biggrin.gif

 

Someone will get a nice unit without a three month wait!

Actually, Eric, I have 3 - Leben, SLI-80 and Glenn's OTL.  The Taboo makes 4.
