I've seen the NFB12 mentioned more than once within the last few pages of the thread. Anyone else have experience with the amount of synergy it has with the MD?

^^ The nfb line is actually pretty nice, particularly the 12. I have good power which the MD seems to respond to well.

Did CNET give you a heads-up they were about to rock your inbox?

Not directly; he interviewed me and I gathered the review would be pretty positive but it turned out better than I'd let myself hope for (if that makes sense).

Can anybody compare these to the Audio Technica W1000X? The W1000X is around $150 more than the Mad Dog, so they aren't exactly in the same price range; however, a comparison would be interesting.

Ha, I didn't see that until now. That's pretty awesome for you Dan, congrats on the increased publicity and potential boost in sales.

Really good deal on some factory refurbished ones. Only 350. The wood is classy.

Can't offer a comparison, but I'll add my thumbs up to the Mad Dogs. They were worth every penny. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

Really? Are you running the O2 with high gain or normal with the HE-500? At low gain, the O2 isn't loud enough. At high gain, it distorts.

What opamp do you have in your O2?

Usually, distortion on the high gain channel is indicative of being underpowered. If you're using the stock 13.5v/200mA power supply that's usually recommended for it, or batteries, you're gonna get distortion. I had the same thing happen, but then I upgraded to a 20v/500mA power supply and no longer had a problem.

Another possible source of distortion/clipping would be having the volume of your computer/player too high, but that would be equally audible on both gain settings...

There are opamps (like the one I have) that distort less than the stock one at higher gain levels, but that's a much smaller factor than the two possibilities above.

I have the JDS with stock AC. No one ever told me that I should upgrade the AC adaptor/plug. Why would they ship with a poor supply of power?
post #3687 of 6388

There are some well documented power issues with the odac for many people. You should take a look at the brief odac impressions thread.

I think he was talking about the O2 not the odac, but yes the odac can have power issues but that's dependent on the usb port.

If I was to sell my HE-400 and purchase a pair of Mad Dogs, would I find myself disappointed?

 

Things I especially like about the HE-400 is the awesomely deep and textured bass, unreal instrument separation, holographic sound stage, and overall detailed sound. Would I miss any of these attributes if I moved to the mad dogs? I love my HE-400 to death, but it being open means I can't listen to them as much as I would like.

 

Lastly can anybody with an M-stage can comment on how they drive the MD? I know they are quite power hungry, but im not too sure how much power the M-stage spits out.

Any more impression on the Meridian Explorer w/ Mad dogs?
