Just got my HD800 in, listening now. Uh oh, good stuff here. Not nearly as bright as I thought it would be. Need to roll out these warm tubes.
Will have comparison to FI-BA-SS soon, since that is what reminds me the most about the HD800 (and 1p2).
So, I completely dropped that ball on this week's listening session with the PF (or whatever earphone tickles your fancy). There did not seem to be much interest earlier this week when I posted about it. Lets shoot for next Saturday to listen to RiddleGuy's album of his choosing.
Right now my Saturday is wide open next weekend. What works for you guys?
A mini FAD Gathering. Well, I come to accept that I can't beat FAD into delivering what I want, but to rest my ego and just listen to what it sings. And well, I can't really say it is marvelous. I'm sure it's unique, and I totally give up on picking up details (habit) or roaring bass (habit) just to listen to the music presentation as a whole.
That's perfectly it! What a compliment! Not hearing the device, listening to the music. : )
OK guys, I need a roll-call of potential people interested in Saturday, June 15's PF listening to RiddleGuy's Faure album.
It didn't happen at all due to lack of responses and lack of my follow-up.
So far, the usual suspects:
Forgot to mention, I've already bought the Fauré Requiem as download from Amazon Germany. Different CD cover, but I believe it's the same Kathleen Battle / Philharmonia Orchestra recording.
Which means I'm in for a Sunday morning (time difference) listen next week, though I might be a bit late depending on your schedule.
Hi all. SF, my lack of reply is not due to lack of interest. Been on holiday with the family with limited listening time and limited 'net time. I really do want to participate in the listen-in's in the future!
That also means I have been away from my 'studio'. But I did get a new, and much better, tripod. Not my best, by any means, but worth posting, I think. Although I'm sure music would disagree.
For those interested, please click on the pfhoto, as there are a few highlights that only show up when 'maximized'. ( as usual, caveat emptor ).
