New member saying Hi.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

  Hi, I've been a reader of this forum for a number of years now and I just decided to join and start posting.  I really enjoy listing to music through headphones and I always seem to have upgrade fever.  

 

 As I work out of town the majority of my headphones are portables: PSB M4U2, B&W P5 (haven't used these for a while), SONY MDR 7520, Kef M-500, Sennheiser Momentums, SONY MDR 1RNC (don't care for the 1RNC's at all and I never use them) and Sennheiser ie80's.  I also have a pair of V Moda M-100's on order which are supposed to be here on Thursday.

 

 I received my Vamp Verza yesterday and  tried it with my Kef M-500's, my Momentums, and my Sony MDR-7520's.  It seemed to make the biggest difference with the Sonys.  Personally, I had found the 7520's a little bright, or maybe just kind of boring until paired with the Verza.  I had tried the 7520's out of my Audiolab M-DAC as well as straight out of my iphone/ipad and never really enjoyed them... until now.

 

  For home use I run my M-DAC into a LYR with HE-500's.  I am hoping to pick up some LCD2's one of these days as I really enjoy the HE-500's but I do find them fatiguing at times and depending on my mood I like to have different options.

Welcome to Head-fi, sorry about your wallet 

 

Looking at your collection of gears, I already feel sorry for your wallet :ksc75smile:

damnnn... that is a lot of money already down for headphones. you should try selling off some headphones & forgoing headphone purchases for a while to save up for that baller $1000+ set!

Wait for the Oppo PM1 to come out, it's looking pretty good, albeit pretty expensive as well :D

 

But welcome! And as zamorin said, and looks like you already know, your bank account may decrease even further.

Hello everyone...

 

My name is Alvin, sorry I wasn't sure whether to start a new thread or just say hi here...I'm rather new (this is my first post).  I actually signed up a couple years back but have been a casual visitor since then.  This place is loaded with tons of useful/helpful information...it's astounding!

 

A little bit about me:  My tastes in music are broad but my favorite genres are alternative rock/electronic/indie.  I mainly listen to music at my desk at home, and on the go I use an iPod 160GB classic>Fiio E17>Sennheiser Amperiors.  Two other headphones that I have are Grado SR225i, and the new Bowers & Wilkins P7.

 

My technical knowledge on gear is very limited (I'm only starting to learn about impedance, etc.)...

 

I haven't gotten around to using proper audiophile programs for listening to music on the pc so for the time being, I'm stuck using iTunes.  The files are a mix of high-quality MP3's and Apple Lossless.  I'm also quite new to the portable amp/desktop DAC thing, so I've been doing a lot of reading in those areas.

 

Lately I've been focusing on getting a proper set-up for listening to music on my pc.  I recently ordered a Schiit Vali amp/Modi DAC combo.  I'm sure I'll eventually upgrade later on.  I'm also considering Audioengine speakers for the pc.  That pretty much sums me up.

Hi Alvin, welcome to another new member... Since you asked you would probably get more welcomes if you started a new thread though:)

Welcome to the world's friendliest pickpocket.

 

But "I don't use it anymore" is what the FS board is for.

 

Cheers!

Hi & thanks! I'm rather shy so one or two welcomes are enough for me.
