    Speaker amps for headphones

    I actually sold off my monoblock AHB2's a year ago when I was laid off :worried: I have since obtained new employment and got myself an SPL s800 amp which I'm just as happy with. The Benchmarks were cleaner and "blacker", but the s800 has more thump and fun to it. It also matches all my other...

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    Like all things, you typically upgrade whatever is the current bottleneck, for varying definitions of what "bottleneck" is. How recently has your amp been serviced? A quick online search shows your amp was made in 1978. If it's still on all the original parts, chances are it will need new...

    With the way omicron has been ripping through town, if we're doing this meet next month I'd say we keep it masked up the whole time except when snacking in the kitchen where we keep the exhaust fan running. Maybe the bathroom fan running too. I had a close contact with someone who tested...

    I think that was just a regular modded T50rp, not a transplanted driver. But yeah, I don't remember what's in them anymore aside from the standard modding practices like new pads, damping materials in the cup, etc.

    I think all I have left from my DIY days is the T50rp transplanted into a Beyer COP. The bass sliders didn't have nearly the effect that I was hoping for, but it's still noticeable.

    I hope everybody made it home safe and sound. The pizza wasn't wasn't so soggy the last time we were there, and one of them was slightly burnt this time. Still good overall though. My favourite place for "cheap" pizza is Pizza King on south Osborne near Jubilee. For expensive pizza, probably...

    Here's the doodle link for the hangout only (no gear). Please vote on availability and I'll try to book as soon as we have a few votes in as I imagine reservations will be a bit crazy this time of year. https://doodle.com/poll/5bdwkuxmmqvcueg6 For security/safety reasons: If you are someone...

    I unfortunately don't have the space to host anything at my place. If @rifi wants to do early Jan, or @Rubin for late December-ish, that sounds like two options. I could set up a doodle to see what works for people. It doesn't have to be a gear heavy meet; I'm more interested in just hanging out...

    How are people's schedules with the holidays coming up? Think we might be able to wrangle a mini-meetup sometime?
