Thanks for the feedback.  It didn't take nearly as much deliberation as I thought it would ;)  Hopefully I'll have the 560s by next weekend :L3000:  Off to UPS!

When I do EQ, I use a parametric EQ so if one did decide they preferred to EQ upward, would a modest nudge upward and narrow notch setting with a parametric be less destructive?

You can add a filter with paraEQ to just push everything down by X number of dBs I think...been a while since I played around with one but I do remember having to do that. So what you'd do is have the manual hump up at the frequencies you want to emphasize, then a broad filter to push the whole FR down just enough for the peak of the hump to be right at 0.


What you are talking about is a preamp setting in the parametric equalizer.  If you EQ up it can cause clipping, clipping is controlled by the preamp setting.  I use jRiver Media Center 18 from my PC to EQ.  It is OK to EQ up if you have the preamp setting to lower the level of all frequencies.  jRiver has a display that registers the preamp level in percentages.  jRiver also has clip protection and flat line overflow setting.  If you don't have a preamp setting, best to just EQ down where needed to control clipping and distortion!  There is a rule somewhere (read that when learning how to EQ), not to EQ up in more than 1 or 2 frequency ranges.  I am only familiar with jRiver Parametric EQ, but other software programs may also have this capability, works really well.

Ps.. I already hauled my PaG to a comparision with some other high end amps (some speaker amps) last week..i even posted pics about that last week:-) missed it? But yeah..it was an ordeal to transport it to them redface.gif

Doesn't it take a week to charge up all of those capacitors?

I see you caved in and your wallet took a beating. Now the hard part, waiting. :popcorn:

i know u say that as kind of a joke..but..

nope..at least 5hrs until its decent sounding..after i came home it took 2days to sound at its normal level..its so weird..never experienced this...but their BC nsl/nsp has same thingie..and as my amp has same insides..well..thats why i never switch it off..or better said..i cant switch it off as it doesnt have an on-off switch...

I did, but it was the perfect opportunity to get the HE-560s, and not have to justify $900 to the wife ;)

 

:popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

 

 

annnnnnd to get a little exercise to fight off all those calories...

Was she in a coma? Or how did you reciprocate?

I promised she could borrow them... :D  Seriously though, she's building up to something, I can feel it.  As soon as I sell one of our cars (that I bought for $1, so it's like 60% profit after repairs and what not) the trap will be sprung.  She'll have to yell over the HE-560s, though ;)

 

Seriously, though, and on topic, hardly wait to slap those Q701 pads on 'em, and probably fairly promptly those sweet wide open red grills :darthsmile:

I did request (in three different communiques) the FocusPad-As.  Hope that deal is still going on.  I really don't need two pairs of FocusPads.

I consider the he560 to be the real engineering feat and breakthrough in planars to date..

Why?
1- Size to weight
2- Sound quality of a one sided magnet driver..

It would be alot easier to achieve sound quality with double sized magnets...
AND,
Would be easy for them to just make a more compact portable unit, like the PM1, at a lower sonic level ("mid tear" level, which pm1 is to me)

So in reality the he560 is the ground breaking headphone in planars. ..
