Nice...colorware?

post #12062 of 14016

This combination has amazed me...

 

HD800 (recent vintage)

Benchmark DAC2 HGC (used as DAC/balanced)

Woo WA-22 (selected tubes)

 

The Woo significantly tames the HD800 top end yet preserves and enhances the soundstage.  The Benchmark re-enforces the immediacy without imparting any additional stridency.  Your choice of tubes allows to fine tune all of the above.

 

Introducing an Audeze LCD-X flattens and enriches the SQ.

 

A Grace m903 does better with a Hifiman HE-500 with any Woo.

 

YMMV

Yup. One-off, they've never done a black one before and they're gonna retire the color after this one.

Coating the whole thing with paint has been the best damping mod so far.

I believe that's not true.  Sorry to bring you bad news.  :D

I believe you are correct but Maxvla could confirm for sure.

It (my post) wasn't a sarcasm mate, if that's what you're pointing at.

If you're right then this "Maxvla" will be hearing from my lawyers!

I think Maxvla used photoshop on his avatar so therefore yours is one of a kind (unless your picture is photoshopped as well) :cool:
