I was thinking about selling the he-6's,but I have 2 more cables coming in,thought maybe I should listen to them ,before I sell

I should get my 800's tomorrow,but still listening to  borrowed pair..they are simply amazing-I haven't turned my schiit stack off in 8 days

Might even keep both??

 

Well,I was hoping you could fly up to NY,& bring your NEW gear

Rawster & I will pick you up at JFK-then procede to Babylon...LOL

Bring some BBoTee,OK?

why do u want to sell the HE-6? not good with the MJ/GUN combo?

I wish it was. I could save myself a lot of money esp since I'm looking for a second dac and want it to be in the same level as my current dac.

Naw, I'm waiting patiently for the Statement Amp.  So if I can nab a BA while I wait.  Hell - why not.

@Solude

 

Do you like Alex Cavalli's Amps?

 

He's got a new SS amp on the way as well.  The Liquid Gold (LAu)

You should ask your buds in the Headamp Camp what they think of Alex and his designs. Justin, Birgir, Kevin, etc.

 

Is it still in time for the Spring or around them parts, prep?

Oh - what have you heard?  

 

Don't really know when it will be released.  It's the last amp he's working on.  So after the LF MkII

There's this place that can't be mentioned without being banned. Controversial discussions or crusades took place there.

 

I think Alex is a good dude and I think he does solid work. A ton of people like the way his amps sound, so that speaks for itself.

 

I also understand that some engineers have their ways and are hard on other's for making what they perceive as bad designs/implementation.

Or "un-original" work. Whatever that means, exactly.

 

 

Will he be updating the LL before that as well. He's apparently making some minor changes to the LL and "redesigning" the casing to 

give more of a Liquid Glass look.

 

Edit: Hell, I should just ask MT he knows everything Alex is doing.

Yeah MT loves everything Alex puts out.  It's hard to get an unbiased opinion.

Not yet I don't.  Or rather not at the prices being asked.  I bought a Liquid Fire, thankfully used so I didn't lose my shirt on resale, but I felt it was a lifeless, fuzzy amp with a loose fitting case that if priced on performance would fall in the $500-1000 range.  Because in my experience it was bested by the HeadAmp GS-1, AMB B22, Burson Soloist and Schiit Mjolnir in that bracket.  Which of those you prefer would be preference.  Personally put the AMB B22 and Schiit Mjolnir at the top for the bracket.

LOL!

That cracks me up!

May as well say that a Honda Accord is the ceiling!

(with apologies to Honda owners, the Accord is a damn fine car................for the $$$)

I think you mean Capacitor Coupled when you say AC coupled.

 

Capacitor coupling will limited the low frequency response.

For example, a 4700 uF coupling cap will limit low frequency response to 1 Hz with a 32 Ohm headphone load.

From the texts...  Capacitive coupling is also known as AC coupling.

 

Bloody hell, BHA-1 rolls the bass too! Kidding :p
