I vote Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. :rolleyes:

 

But honestly, it's all good. Mostly. Better than 95% of the stuff made today at least, that's for sure.

Paul Pang stuff is awesome.

I have a computer dedicated music server made around his PPA USB card (powered by linear PSU).

Highly recommended!

 

And another vote for Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness !!

MCIS definitely has more hits, but SD holds together as a single album better imo. Plus, SD has Mayonaise. ;)

 

See, derailing with Pumpkins>derailing with cable debate.

Ah, the signature...

 

And yes.  It was that easy.

Guys guys guys....

 

Zeitgeist was obviously the best Smashing Pumpkins album

 

post #10492 of 12407

Zeitgeist gets too much flak imo. The guitar work is awesome, but Billy's voice has changed so much, coupled with terrible mixing, make for a weaker experience for sure. Not to mention the politics.

I am using the HD800 with the AK240 balanced with an balanced cable and adapter and it is working well. The AK240 is awesome and will work well with the hd800.  The adapter is wyredwires- Alex did a great job making the adapter

I have to agree. I have a balanced adapter from ALO that I've been using with the HD800's and I've been very pleasantly surprised how well the HD800's work with the AK240.

Does anyone use their HD800 with a modmic? I just got one last night but noticed that the magnet is being held against the headphone and didn't know if that had any ill effects. Some cursory research seems to imply that this shouldn't matter, but I figured I would check to see if anyone had any insight there.

Is there anyone using the HD800 with a budget rig, say 350$ and less?
post #10497 of 12407

Now that's a gaming headset.... :D

 

Can't imagine it should matter, maybe on a theoretical level. But hardly on a practical one.

Sure, it hardly sounds its best like that but it can be done. Matrix M-stage is often recommended.

I'd stick with a cDAC and Vali for about 250$!

If you do not own the hd800 I personably would buy a less revieling headphone.
As the hd800 are extreme in detail and and having cheaper DAC and amp is looking for
An unhappy audio experience
I am sure I will get bashed now. But someone needs to be honest
Here.
