All played via my new second hand Rsa dark star or my old stand by Rsa raptor via bryston bda1 dac via McIntosh spinner.
I've tried for two years to fall in love with my he500. I can't. They sound muffled compared to my rs1. Yes they are wider, the music is spread out and there is more base. All major pluses for the he500. Yet I'm stuck on the veiled treble and vocals.
I'm finally willing to confess that I hate my he500.
Yet I want more from my rs1s.
I've spent time with the he6 and the lcd3. The lcd3 seems like a clear victor between the two.
I've loved the hd800 on Eddie current but hate it on the dark star.
I don't know where to go or what to do next. Sell he500, dark star and raptor?
This is half rant and half confession.
I want to move on up like George and weezie but I'm not sure where to go.
