With the listening room seeing the slow and steady departure of gears lately, and in the absence of the HiFiMAN HE-6, I decided to bring the venerable Senn HD280 Pro's out of storage. And give them a run on the 2359glenn OTL Silver Hawk. Last night I ran the 280s out of the iPod un-amped and for the first time became curious how it would stack up against the HD650 out of the OTL.

 

So, in the interest of Saturday night fights - a showdown between "Senns!" using the OTL amp. 


What tubes are you using in the amp for this showdown?

:thumb: Great question, as it didn't hit me just yet. I finally have found all my tubes for the OTL. Likely, a combo that I'm very familiar with. Before dawn this morning I cheated and went in for a sneak preview. Tube complement was the TS-5998s in the power slot, Brimar 13D-1 in the drive position, anchored by the BIG Russian on rec duty. Because these were the last selections I listened to.

 

What I discovered - and quickly - is that I'm going to need an additional week of listening a bit each night before coming to any conclusions. The reason is I'm so use to hearing the "Clear as a bell" mids from the HiFiMAN HE-6 that my brain needs to re-acclimate to the sound of both Senns. What I heard from both cans was brutal! :D It wasn't always like this, just now entering the post HE-6 period. 

 

The 5998s will stay in, and will try both the Syl 3DG4 and The Mighty 596, as well as the Ken Rad 1633, Brimar 13D-1, TS-BGRP and one of the FIVREs. Of course, I'm always open to suggestions. My own suggestion would be to see that 'Selah' gets a couple of sisters later this year... :wink_face: Twins!

Last week was PizzaHacker time when

parbaked and I went out for drinks and pizza.

The first photo is from our first meeting.

People say that we look like brothers. We certainly dress alike with no prior notice. Scary!

 

Last night was PizzaHacker time again!

It was also El Amigo time.

Some of the same drinks--some not so same.

One same pizza. One not so same. Same large pitcher of beer!

Rachel our bartender played my Tyrannosaurus Rex and Edgar Winter LPs.

Fun.

 

Happy Friday!

Boy were we bad. Very very bad. We were going to pay the pizza bill then realized we had already paid it... so we forgot what happened 10 minutes before and 5 minutes after (huh)? I had watched parbaked maneuver himself down the sidewalk as I tried to negotiate the general public at large (which most of the time is not a pretty sight--me included). I ended up on Powell Street and then took a cable car 4 blocks up the hill which cost me $6 one way. We will swear off drinking at Rachel's bar and all other types of restaurant dining until I return from Hawaii on April 15 ...or thereabouts.

 

We'll save you a seat at the bar.

:sigh: I frequently do Southern Deep-Fried Fish or West African fare most Fridays. But these pix got me upside down! Maybe pizza tonight? :D
