Hey, don't knock Vegas hookers if you haven't "heard" them.:wink_face:

May I join?  The SE846s arrived today.

 

Spending 12K on Courvoisier would last a while, but the amount in question is 120K.  The price of a house in many places.  

 

I would be amazed if he sells one.  In fact, I doubt that he will even make one.

Did your SE846 work out of the box?

And those prices are without the requisite amps and DACs, power conditioners, room conditioning, and other stuff.

 

People are serious/crazy about their speaker hi-fi.

I'm guessing it's supposed to compete with the DCS Vivaldi and MSB Diamond for best DAC?

Works just fine.  Still tip rolling, but sound is excellent.

Comply TSX100s arriving Monday.  I use TS400s on my Dunu DN1000s and get a good seal.

The date on the box was January 13.  Was that after the phasing error fix?

Mine's a Dec'13 set and it's perfect. :)

 

I think it's the pre-Oct'13 batches that might have had phase problems. Not sure though!

Enjoy it. I find that the bass really adds an energetic and fun dimension to all music. Even if you listen to something as simple as a guitar being picked you'll see that there's a tiny bit of bass in that millisecond after the pick lets go of the string. The treble and mids on this, while not perfectly natural sounding, are also engineered to sound fun. Shure really knows how to make pop music sound good imho.

P.s. if you have any issues with the tips get comply professional because I know those are good.

Only the first batch has the wiring error.

Arn't these like the complies that come with TF10?  I never like the TF10 complies, more foamy and it changes the FR.  I get the best seal with silicones, but unfortunately the olives has smaller bore than the complies that it comes with.  This is the only reason why I use the complies in this case(since you get a better response with the wider bore), as I prefer silicone.  

 

But the Shure complies provide better seal than the more foamy kind since the surface is sealed up more so it so it provides close seal to the silicons so still good low frequency response.

I'm being lazy I know , I'm sure the answer is in the thread already but...... Can someone briefly describe the main differences in sound from the se535? I'm thinking if upgrading but I just want some impressions first.
Regards, James.
