Before and after pics - CURSE YOU HEAD FI! - Page 11

post #151 of 6020
Thread Starter 
Post count is 7910. The Tushi has been sent to Australia to cavort with the Kangaroos. The KSC-35 finally pooted out. And we've come full circle on the portable rig - scary how much the picture below looks like my very first pic in this thread, doesn't it? "And the circle is complete!"



The Go Vibe V3 has the Green LED, and the Op Amp is a browndogged AD8066. Check out full info on http://members.shaw.ca/storage_2/headsave/
My Rat Shack lithium 9V batt is in there now.

The SR60 is a, well, SR60 hehe. Now I have a full set of Grado Pads (all but a sock mod version lol!) but the comfies didn't do it for me, so the best compromise right now are reversed bowls (actually I might consider the flats but i don't want to walk around town with original Joe Grado flats!)

The amp bag is a lowepro camera bag, a D-Res 30AW, and the cord wraps are Sumajin cablewraps. The Grado carry case is the taiwanese one everyone's raving about right now. The portable amp with the red LED in the pic was a borrowed JMT CHA-47, heading back to Joelongwood, thanks for the lend!

Curse you, Head-fi! You can't even leave my dog walking rig alone!

Oops I didn't say in the writeup? The SR71 took one for the team in a trade for the HP2. In fact you can goto Headphile.com and see my amp up there - I can vouch for its bad-assness!

Yep the SR60 case is for commuting, it stays in my briefcase until i get to work then i pop it in the case safe and sound. For dog walkin' it's just the cans and the camerabag!

Lan: "The Pinkie, I make her sound Tha Bomb."

Jahn: "What you say? Mod, with great courage!"

BTW It's too early for an update, but once the new gear comes, expect another addition to the front page...ELECTROSTATS.

Oh my some electrostats should be nice

This is what I'm leaning towards as well after schools done. Hmm I think I'll send Lan a PM seeing if he'd mod my E-MU0404, I've heard mods make them very, very good

Somewhat of an update - well, I know at least the Darth Beyers and Stax SR-404's weren't here when I posted on this thread the last time.



Also, now my main source is Electrocompaniet ECD 1 fed by Philips DVD 963SA.
