The HeadAmp GS-X and GS-X MK2 Thread - Page 140

post #2086 of 3607

Btw through pure luck and auditioning the below I thought it's a great sounding little cable. I recommended it to a couple of friends and they thought the same.

 

Turns out UK magazine does a round-up of cables between £XX and £6500 and this little fellow came second. I've heard from a friend the Chord Signature is even better, but I haven't yet heard it. :)

 

People looking for warmer & organic sounding USB cables, you could look at Tellurium Q Black & Graphite USB. Strong bass and smooth treble. Not the biggest soundstage though.

yeah i only needed like 3 meters but last time i did that it was slightly too short and the cable was wasted. they don't have 4 meter available i don't think.

 

once i move out and maybe can get a different setup, i might be able to put things closer together. 

 

also having 1 meter interconnects makes it hard to move stuff around.

It's digital, you could hypothetically use a coat hanger, as long as the 1s and 0s turn up to your DAC delivery has ZERO consequence

the max cable length for USB is in the specs (3m for usb1, 5m for usb2) and is there for a reason. it has to do with the max round trip delay of the signal. if the cable is too long, the delay will be too high that the host will consider the command lost. so altho cable quality shouldnt matter too much, cable length does matter.

Hi all,

I ordered GS-X mkii from Headamp three and a half months ago. I sent Justin two emails last week asking about the progress but got no reply. Is it normal? Anyone knows how long I'm going to wait? Thank you!

IMO the only person that can tell you that is Justin, my advice is to be patient because it'll be well worth it.

Some of the finished faceplates are coming in now, so Justin has all the boards stuffed and in the cases, just some final assembly and then testing and burning in in waves of probably 15-30 amps at a time, then so long as they pass muster, it will be on your doors step a few days later.

Justin is a one man shop; he is fulfilling many, many orders and he is dealing with subcontracts who are not always as relievable as should be. How does he deal with them? He sends the stuff back and demands quality product. This is why his amps are so special -- no detail is overlooked. You have to stop stressing, let time pass and let Justin to his thing. You will get your amp in the end and you will be happy that Justin did things the way he did.

Here is a question for you guys - Is Blue Hawaii in BHSE named after the Frank Sinatra song "Blue Hawaii" written by Leo RobinRalph Rainger ? Or does it have a more practical meaning?
