    Bottlehead Amplifier Discussion / Comparison Thread: Crack, SEX & Mainline

    The SEX set to 4ohms was supreme with the original Aeon closed... I guess that's not what you asked directly but I haven't heard them sound even remotely as enjoyable on another amp - I think they really need more juice than most people give them.

    Millett "Starving Student" hybrid amp

    Are the LED’s wired correctly? Positive / Negative the right way around. They should be on the tube side of the board inside the tube sockets. A picture of the board may help.

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    Another happy Vérité Closed customer checking in. I've been listing to these all day and night for about a week and have been enjoying every minute. They scale beautifully - most of my listening's been on a Crack but I switched over the the Elekit TU-8600 and the detail and holographic...

    NEW! Fostex TH610 Premium Reference Closed-Back Headphones

    yup - exactly this. They are different sizes. It may not look that way in photos but they are.

    NEW! Fostex TH610 Premium Reference Closed-Back Headphones

    They do reverse polarity but it’s not a problem unless you are one of the (un)lucky few that can hear the difference. I can’t. It’s also not too hard to re-solder the headphone jack on a cable and reverse the polarity there. Also note the sennheiser plugs are too long to fit snuggly, but they...

    [SOLD] Fostex TH610 (TH-610)

    bump. Just to be clear - the last picture shows an additional cable that I'm supplying. The ¼ stock cable is in perfect working order and also included.

    [SOLD] MrSpeakers Aeon Flow Closed (Dan Clark Audio)

    I'm parting ways with my MrSpeakers (now known as Dan Clark Audio) Aeon Flow Closed. I'm sure these need no introduction but if not - these are a planar magnetic over ear closed back headphone. These have been very well looked after and show no signs of wear on the cups, pads or headband...

    [SOLD] Fostex TH610 (TH-610)

    Selling my pair of Fostex TH-610s. These were my first step into higher end head-fi and I'm sad to let them go but need to make room for some new gear. I've taken excellent care of them using a headphone stand when not in use and a padded carry case when moving between locations. Along with the...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    Thumbs up on both counts - no etch or grain. I didn’t make any notes about the stage - the tracks I listened too weren’t great at showing this off. I didn’t note anything unnaturally wide. Hopefully I’ll get some more time with them soon.

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    funny you should mention that Ray... :) I paid Spiritland a visit today to listen to the HEDDphone. Here’s the short review I jotted down whilst on the tube home. The physical size primed me for a bone shaking wall of bass but the real standout for me was how smooth of a presentation the HEDD...

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    I went ahead and order the PlusSound EXO Tri-Silver cable to pair with my U12t after meeting with Dan Feel @ offslip in a cafe today. Much more chilled environment to compare cables than a show. I went with this one as it cleaned up the low end just the right amount and brought out more width...
