MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones - Page 449

post #6721 of 8834

Our new painter is kicking ass and our production is really accelerating.  As of tomorrow we will have shipped through March 25.  

 

By Tuesday of next week we will have shipped all upgrades in house, and I expect we'll be into April orders and back at our quoted backlog of 3-4 weeks.  Our goal is to get to close to having stock on the Alpha Dogs within the next few weeks.  Thanks to everyone for your patience while we dug out of the Matte Black delays.  

 

All Alphas in house for upgrade will ship by Tuesday, at which point we will resume sending out upgrade notices.

I received notification my Lyr is available for pickup this evening at the FedEx site. Now my gear upgrade will be complete. The ADs already sound fantastic out of my receiver headphone out but the Lyr is taking it to a whole new level.

Very excited for a late night music session. I'll post impressions for those interested. From what people have said the pairing is quite good between the AD and the Lyr.

This bodes poorly for many, many wallets.

Good to know you're making these faster. Ordered mine on April 20th and very excited, still some time to go though!

Great service you do for the community MrSpeakers! Hopefully I'll place an order for some of these early next month.

How much of a delay for the upgrade option? Been a while since I put my name for that.

Look forward to meeting you at AXPINA!

We totally halted that as we had too many on hand and were taking too long.  We will send more notices out next week.  I'm not trying to estimate the queue, that's essentially impossible right now...

Wow fantastic news!! I'm so excited to hear this I may be getting my black Alpha Dogs before finals week :)

 

My finals start May 12th so I am hoping I will have them before to make my studies a little bit easier with noisy roommates : ]

No prob. I am a patient man. But didn't have the energy to search this thread for an answer.

Woke up this morning to a very pleasing email from MrSpeakers (Mine was March 24th)

Now both my Lyr and my ADs are in transit.. it's going to be a good week next week! :L3000:

Man I want the Lyr and Bifrost with these, I guess i'll be using the Vali/Modi for it, cant justify the cost of nearly $1000 with lyr + bifrost + taxes + custom fees + shipping...

Lyr+dragonfly does a very good job.

There are a lot of amps that do fine with the ADs... IMO they don't take much to drive. On the DIY side of things you can pretty much find these items on the FS forums all the time. I'm using a Gamma-2 DAC with CTH Amp or O2 amp. Both do great with the ADs. I think you can find a Gamma-2 for $250-350. A CTH comes up every now and then for $200-300. An O2 can be had for much less. I just built a PPA that fits in a Tin Mint can and it drove the ADs with authority. The full sized PPA can be had on the FS forums as well. There are a bunch of CKKIIIs FS as well. Great amp that can handle most headphones. They're like $250 a pop. The point is you don't have to spend $1000 for great sound. The only headphones that need a ton of juice or voltage swing are phones like the K1000 or HE-6. Aside from that it doesn't take much to drive ADs to ear bleeding levels.
