what a quiet day...

Off work today and enjoying my new Crack with Speedball upgrade!
Surprisingly good with the HD800 and the 3D quality is outstanding.
Now I have to sell my WA6 and get some tube upgrades for the Crack.
Does it ever end?

Wait till you add this to your crack http://www.khozmo.com/balanced_stereo.html or a "lightspeed"

Will think about it:D.
But seriously,the HD800 sounds really,really good with the Crack and once I got that GEC brown base or whatever it should be even better.
Only 195.- in the classifieds.....a steal,basically!
Takes about 7 days from the US to NZ....waiting!!!

Does it sound better than your SX1010? :frown:

Both have the same holographic 3D quality and authority(means HD800 sounds not thin but full of power/energy/meaty)but the Crack has the blacker background....deadsilent!
In comparison the WA6 soundstage is wide but has little depth and you know that the HD800 could do with a little more power.
So I am going to sell the WA6(with Sophia Princess and Emission Labs rectifier)as the HD800 is and I guess,always will be my main headphone.

Good stuff. I really really want to try a crack... I wish they were more popular round my neck of the woods. So I didn't have to build one myself.. 

 

I'm sure its easy enough but... Kids, time, etc. Plus I severely burnt myself ironing a shirt once,

 

Is a soldering iron more user friendly? :bigsmile_face: 

 

Jokes aside, I know exactly where you are coming from in regards to the 3d imaging. Thats why I've never looked back once I heard what the older amps could do with power hungry can's. In that respect the crack must be a fabulous deal because none of my previous dedicated hp amps (all mid end) could hold a flame to my better vintage amps.

You are right once you have heard this holographic soundstage(like "Avatar" for the ears)it is impossible to go back to a flat soundstage.

I can listen to flat soundstage, but just for short time variation.
But hd800 out of the head experience is really addictive.

+1, I think that's what I love and say "ahhh" every time I use the hd800.

Try hd800 with movies, you'll say WOW biggrin.gif
The sound layering really helps there.

But they are rubbish for gaming.

I beg to differ... I wear them when I'm playing chess. Bit of light Mozart helps me concentrate.
