    FS: Almarro A318b amp

    I don't have a pic of the inside, but in the past I've opened it and confirmed it's unmodded. It's all point to point wired. I can do $100 for the caps if you buy the amp. They'd be $140 + shipping from Sonic Craft.

    SOLD: Focal Elear

    Also, Focal Clear pads fit on the Elear and make it an even better headphone. All in all, this is a great way to achieve great sound on a reasonable budget. (Clear pads need to be bought separately)

        No I can't say I've heard every cable in existence...  Cardas hasn't been a favorite of mine in the past, but it has been a while since I've had any around.  Also, I find the Cardas connectors and sundries inferior to Furutech.  Believe it or not, cryo treatment does seem to have a...

    I wouldn't say I prefer a warm signature. I prefer neutral to slightly sweet. Slightly sweet in the "emotional engagement" sense. But my T3 is dead nuts neutral to slightly sweet depending on tube, and that's how I built it - with metal foils and Rike caps. And the Stellaris does not sound like...

    Neurochrome HP-1: Ultra-High End Headphone Amp

    I thought I'd start a thread dedicated to the new headphone amp design by Tom Christiansen (Neurochrome).  This can be ordered pre-built, or as a partial-DIY project where Neurochrome supplies the PCB, chassis, and BOM list.  I'd caught wind of this amp a while back, and preordered the PCB from...

      The HD800 is bright and lean.  I prefer the HD650 with a ZDS given a neutral 6SL7 tube pairing.  The RCA red base would probably be a good choice for my preferences.  The HD800 wins in soundstage and detail resolution, but I simply do not like its tonality and that's a killer for me...
