Ditto. And the Paradox, of course ;).

Anybody notice that the cup color looks so much alike the TH900 cup color. 

It will be a huge surprise that you have that kind of color from the Alpha Dog.

It isn't much like the TH-900 finish at all, IMO. But maybe that's because I can see it in person. Pictures don't do it justice.

It is a similar color. I kept mistaking them at the Cal Audio Show today. Loved the Alpha Dogs and plan to do the upgrade when it is available later this year.

There are many factors that determine what shapes will work well.  We are function-first, and the form follows the function.  

 

Dan,

 

Congratulations on this new offering to your fine selection of Mad Dogs headphone selections!

Were the Alpha Dogs voiced with any particular amps that can be shared with the viewing public?

The Alpha Dogs thread is at:

This is the Mad Dogs thread (you will get much more attention for your question on that other thread).

Hi guys!  A little over a year ago I sold my headphone to bring in money due to my wife's third battle with cancer.  It's been a hell of a year, she made it through two surgeries and chemo only to have it roar back only four weeks into her returning to work.  Long story short....battle number four is almost over, just a few more scheduled chemo sessions, and I landed the best job of my life as this was going on.  I'm going to splurge a little this Christmas and purchase the balanced version of Dan's Mad Dogs.  It will be close, but I should also have the funds needed for the ALO The International.  Do any of you have experience with this DAC/Amp?  Would it mate well with the Mad Dogs?  Thanks in advance for any guidance you could offer me!

I can't help you with the amp i'm afraid, but if anyone deserves a treat it's you, enjoy them and i wish your wife well.

Thanks guys!  I think The International would have the juice....what about the 22 ohm output impedance?  I guess that wouldn't be a problem considering the fact that a lot of people are going the vintage receiver route?

I remember when you had posted your complete headphone rig for sale here on the forum.  The past year seems like quite challenge.  Sending good thoughts to you and your wife to be able to get through this ... and to get back to living a life without worry.
