I've considered that as well as trying Alpha pads. Have both in the house so maybe..............

Anyone have a good suggestion for a <~$1k stack for the TH900 (bonus points if it can drive the LCD2 and HD800s)?

My current setup is an Audio GD NFB10SE, which seems to do a reasonable job, but was wondering if I can get something better.

Contenders in my mind are the Fostex HP-A8C, Woo Audio WA7, Fostex HP-A4 and Asgard2/Uber BitFrost. But I'm wide open to suggestions, including just keeping the AudioGD.

Meier Corda Daccord + Classic stack. Can drive the Th 900 & HD 800 very well. haven't tried the LCD's.

Anyone know if Fostex sell replacement pads for the TH900, I don't care for aftermarket pads I like the original, but unfortunately after hundreds of hours of wearing they are slowly starting to burr

burr? like tiny bits coming off?

Thanks, those weren't on my list but I'll do some research on them. They do seem to be 50% over my budget though...

You should give the Angle and Alpha pads a try on the 900s. If you don't like them I can swing over to Gresham and pick them up from you :wink_face:

Yeah kind of like flaky bits coming off, I've had them for around 18 months now and wear them on average 3 hours a day, so you can imagine no matter how well built they are there is always going to be wear & tear with this kind of usage

post #6252 of 8523
Is it black flaky bits aka parts of the earpad, or white flaky bits aka possibly oily substance from hair? Have you tried wiping it off? Could you please post a few photos?
post #6253 of 8523
yep sounds like they're perishing. contact the place you bought them from if they're an authorised dealer or fostex direct.
