So you're getting the Blue Circle amp/dac based on what?

Didnt u get my pm on which i gave u more info?

 

well u ask and i reply:

 

i am considering to get myself that dac/amp because of this:

 

1. Their excellent reputation of making some very very very special high quality sounding components

2. They love to make u any custommade project humanly possible,love is keyword here

3. Reasonable priced..NOT CHEAP

4. The reviews/ posts on threads i read

5. My hero here on headfi, SKYLAB, owned a blue circle headphone amp ( i pm'ed him for more info) and he said he loved it...what more confirmation u want..lolz

6. And i love tohave something very special almost no one knows off..thats why i have the 337

4. The way blue circle reply on my, a bit stalkative, questions bout 'my' future amp/dac

5. 3 years warranty

5. My guts and intuition tell me they make something that can really surprise, has same feeling i got when i heard/read bout the 337 and the he500 and even my mstage..i trust this feeling..until now it didnt fail me..

6. I love to take a little bit of a risk

7. Am lucky this time that my budget this time stretches to get something excellent, thanks to the taxes..first time that i am happy bout those creeps! Oopswink.gif

 

so now u have (some of) my reasons why i maybe ( if price is acceptable ofcourse) will join the blue circle fellowship.

 

EDIT

 

u can see i didnt include esthetics! For me thats the less most important fact of an amp...as long it has quality built to last forever..and i read blue circle products are built like that...as i said..in worst case scenario i will put it under my desk on a small tablebiggrin.gif

 

i didnt buymy 337 not  based on looks also...to be honest..almost everyone who saw it in my house find it ugly and oldfashioned..but i dont care..as that heavy beast pumps out music through my he500 in a way i could never be able to imagine..its heavely!!

 

but now i need a dac to connect it to my pc...and ialready heard a couple of them already...not one really made me wow'ed myself compared to the dap i use now as source..the excellent hm602 on lineout as standalone source..not connected to pc.

That is utterly brilliant. What a great bit of recycling. Kudos to you.

Thanks! Didn't want to spend a lot of money on a case for a $30 amplifier board (I supplied the power supply, and it's a really nice little amp!).

What speakers are you powering. Im envisioning 2 washing machine boxes with cutout cardboard cones. Concentric drivers of course!

:)

Cool stuff.

Just a cheap pair of Pioneer SP-BS22-LRs. Wish I would've gone with Kef iQ30s though, but didn't have the funds at the time... frown.gif

They have good reviews. You could always check Audiogon when you save up again. There's plenty of excellent 5-10 yr old speakers and you'll get more value. Though audio is an expensive hobby for sure.
