So, apparently Auralic made a DAC/headphone amplifier combo built inside that stand. This freaking headphone stand can do DSD.:eek: I'm losing my ship over here!!!!

 

Balanced output and 2W !!

 

It even has a toslink input (which is more than can be said about the meridian prime).

 

Friggin cooool.

I watched the voice season episode 25.
use my hd800 . Josh kaufman left his heart on the floor in his last song. Imo he took adele song to the next level.
felt I were him .this hd800 really can give thrilling experience. Hearing emotion is one thing..experience emotion is another. Just sharing the experience that I got from my hd800

Yeah at this point, if I had to, I'd rather spend another $500 and get the DAC/AMP combo over just the headphone stand going for $500. I really wanna hear the 2000 version. The Conductor didn't impress me much either.

Thanks.

 

This is great news, as I have been thinking about this headphone, especially after falling in love with the HD650.

I know anything below 19xxx has hash trebles.

My 2nd one is 26xxx I think

Is this really true? Well, either way im 21XXX.

post #10806 of 24367

Not true. Canadian411 are you trolling around?

 

I have 20837 and my friend has 16k smth and his friend's 5k smth and neither are harsher than mine.

The 5k model is actually smoother. 

Also confirmed by a lot of measurements and other people impressions too.

I have no technical proof but my 1st one back in 2011 had very thin sounding, no bass but just hash trebles. I purchased again in 2013 november with the serial number 26... and bass is different to my ears.

I can be wrong but this new one I like.
Someone correct me if I am wrong.
Don't want to give any false information. I am curious as well.

Woo Audio stands are terrific build quality, and heavy!

Agreed. Mine are 10xxx and they don't have harsh treble unless your recording is such. Sounds smooth as butter to these ears redface.gif

People more rumers who comes up with these things.
Does anybody here know that our headphones are somewhat unique
Why you may ask as you say I am ass again.
Here us why each if the drivers inside has serial number
This serial number is assigned when the individual driver is tested.
The idea is the headphones are so accurate that the drivers are paired
This is so if we damage a driver they would send us a matching device
Does anyone hear think there super hearing could desern
One serial number to another.
So if this is true how could there be a difference in serial numbers of the headphones
Am I making any sense ???

I liked the Chrome one:

 

 

 

...but the fact that it is $200 and looks like my banana and paper towel stands doesn't make it worth it to me. It's a nice finish for sure, but nothing aesthetically appealing given it's price.

I have the silver one. When you see it (and feel it) in the flesh you'll realize it's worth the money. Very solid and the height adjustment is handy for bigger headphones. Got mine free with my LCD-X!

Ya as you can see, I am trolling around here pretending that I have HD800.

...like I said I am curious myself. I say again (pls read) I don't have a technical proof.

Also, did you test 24 or 26... series?
