No worries Golden, just keeping it straight. I agree on the looks of it. I'm also in money's position wanting to test more gear.

Yeah, I'm the same way I've got the HA-1 with the Carbon on order, looking to try tubes next (probably ALO Audio Studio Six), just sold my Ragnarok too. Helps to give you a good baseline when you are able to try a bunch of different gear. So far the HA-1 has been one of the best values I've yet experienced.

Studio Six has been on my radar for a while. Solid choice IMO. Should compliment the HA-1 well.

That's my hope anyway, I'm hoping it will make a good pairing with the HE1000. I like the synergy of the HA-1 and LCD-3F for desktop use. The LCD's need a more neutral amp IMO since they are already a colored headphone, and the HA-1 has plenty of power to drive them.

Anyway, a swap would be hella expensive for shipping the HA-1 cross boarder but might be worth it. Or meet me at the West Coast border at the arranged time! Lol!

Fantastic review of the HE-1000 btw.

Do you run your LCD-3F balanced or unbalanced? Can you hear a difference between them? I'm considering the HA-1 for my LCD-2F.

post #3562 of 3565
Balanced. I think the sound quality is probably the same but there's more power on tap via the balanced output.

Another question for the HA-1 owners:

 

I live in a thunderstorm prone region, so I always unplug my gear when not it use. Does the HA-1 remember its current settings after being unplugged, or does it revert to factory defaults every time?

post #3564 of 3565

it remembers the last previous settings (input, volume, etc.)
