post #8101 of 25155

Just to clarify, In my above post I just referred to HD 800 as a random example. I do not find them bright at all, a bit lean some times (depending on the amp and / or tube), but never bright.

+1. There is nothing better than a sound scientific analysis ;-)))

Also @ALRAINBOW for me personally I never EQ anything because the fun of this hobby is getting gear and appreciating the sound of the particular gear you have just purchased. I don't think theres anything wrong with EQ, but I much rather do research here on head-fi and other related sites to see what users are liking with my phones and amps that I own. So basically for me it's the journey to find a better system than my current system and EQing for me take a lot of the fun out of this hobby.

I can see your point but at my age I just want to hear the music and enjoy it now
I have spent about 200k in Hifi over about five years and I am tired of all the complications
And the constant search for better. Is just overwhelming
So a short cut to EQ is fine by me. As long as you know the amp is neutral and I have enough amps to know and
A really good DAC in the front end to tell you of My changes down the path to your ears

I'm thankful that I like tweaking my equipment and figuring out what works, but that I also can flip a switch and just enjoy the music.

 

I'm not pointing at you but some guys seem to get stuck in this endless tweaking cycle and I can see very strong parallels to a special kind of car enthusiast.

 

Some car enthusiasts like to drive their cars, some like to maintain them and drive them, some like to modify them and then drive them.

 

But then you get a special breed of car enthusiast who will spend 2 years in his basement rebuilding or restoring his dream car. But once it's finished he'll drive it around the block for two laps before he puts it up for sale...

 

Maybe he has just as much fun as the guys driving their cars? I don't know, I'm not that kind of guy so I wouldn't know.

 

But if a little bit of EQ is all it takes for someone to enjoy the equipment they've got, instead of being frustrated with it. To me, and from my perspective, that's a 100% super-easy "just go for it" kind of deal. :biggrin:

It's all about our mood at the time. I think we all have at least a few of us inside

You know; I think we just need to respect each other. I just want to enjoy the music - sometimes. I get high on the sound - sometimes. My fascination for the sound has led me to different sorts - of music. And my love of music has taken me down different sorts of sound. I believe in cables, and bit-depth that I can't hear; and I don't mind that people who have studied it all on paper think that it's not true. I don't own the truth, and neither do they, but we all have the gifts of music and beauty, thanks to each other, and, on this forum, we share it across continents... and if this wasn't the HD800 Appreciation Thread, I would say that that is some Schiit. Thank you, dear friends.

I agree Amictus, we all have a common bond Music. We are all individual self thinking humans, the beauty of this is, we will all have varying opinions of what sounds good and what does not based on our on perception of music and frame of reference from our own lives.This is what makes good conversation and learning possible!!
