wow back from the country river home, no 900 there, catching up listening, only 5 days till im out heading down tour the grand canyon, i mean the entire circumference over 22 days, no 900 :(  kinda builds up the appreciation factor, im not sure if i would insert, like the wife here....but I did, my bad.

I hope to see the Grand Canyon some day! The trick is to buy a pair of earmuffs and cut holes in them so that it feels like you are wearing headphones then just enjoy the incredible binaural experience. The soundstage is REALLY huge! wink.gifbiggrin.gif

hey thanks for the well wishes everyone and yes its a dry heat, we have camel backs, tilley hats, etc.....Havasupai looks fantastic but we have picked two nights at the canyon, el tovar, heli tour etc...we are coming from sedona and a five star resort, originally land in vegas of course. Then off to monument valley, the view for a couple, then moab for a bunch of days, then into utah for bryce and zion, then back to vegas. Canyon lands is in there as well. Its a road trip with exotic and utilitarian on state park lodging.   I hope early morning hikes suit us and afternoon siestas will abound, however this was really about my inability to listen to my th900 and hpa8 combo and the appreciation that it brings. Only a few days left so, whats to listen to now....

^ We expect pics of you crossing the Grand Canyon on a tightrope. Said tightrope has to be made of copper-silver-hybrid-audiophile-hipster material or it doesn't count.

For those who modded th TH-900 with the Lawton mods, what changes do you noticce in the sound?

Is that with stage 1 mods only or cups as well?

 

I have two TH-900s at the moment and wondering if should invest in the mods and/or cups or not. 

I did mod a couple of D7000s a few years back (both with Lawton and Martin cups) and for those I did find the SQ increase substantial.

there is substantive discourse on this thread already but since you have two of them and liked what you heard on the old dennons, did you need to ask? blow the load full upgrade and let us know how it shakes out.

Now that was helpful.

And yes, there are lot of opinions in this thread why they shouldn't be modded by people who didn't mod them.

Let me rephrase the question for those with one or both of the Lawton mods that wish to share their opinion.

 

When I modded a D7000 with level 2 Lawton mods the result was more defined bass, more controlled treble and a more spatial sound.

Now when one mods a TH-900, which does already have those three enancements over the D7000, does one just get more of the same or does the main shortcoming (IMO) of the TH-900 get addressed: the recessed / less prominent mids?

 

If not, am I right in thinking the only way to enhance the mids would be a richer/warmer amp?

Except for EQ of which I'm not a big fan.
