    Rogue Audio RH-5 Impression Thread

    Hi Wes. I use to have the same ISOBAR you have. But this year I upgraded my strip to the PS audio line conditioner strip. It was a pretty big upgrade. While it is not cheap it was well worth it in that it upgrades everything that is plugged into it. I also bought the Shunyata plug in line filter...

    K701 thread

    I did not change the leash on my 701s when I had them. I was referring to the newer 702s the cable is replaceable on them. I replaced the cable on my AKG 712s pros. The 701s were very good headphones but they just wore out from use. They were over 10 years old. The 712 are better in that they...

    K701 thread

    The moon silver dragon headphone cable was definitely a big step up from the stock cable. While not cheap it is not as esoterically priced as some of the premium headphone cables out there. You are right about the AKGs needing a pretty hefty amp to properly drive them. The silver dragon is more...

    Opinions on vintage receivers?

    I was going over my old posts. I came across my post about the Concept 16.5. Yeah I wish I still had it. But unfortunately the power switch just wore out. And it was unobtainum any more.

    K701 thread

    I had the 701 for a long time and the headband just disintegrated but after many many years of steady use. I have since upgraded to the k712 pro. The 701s are a demanding headphone that requires a pretty healthy headphone amp. I used a Burson Ha-160 to good effect on them finding it to have a...

    Rogue Audio RH-5 Impression Thread

    Thanks for the suggestions and the website that you ordered your tubes from. I just ordered the brimar 491 and the rht mil spec ecc82 . Looking forward to getting them. I have been reading a lot about the brimars the RHTs are pretty reasonable so I thought I would try them as well.

    Schiit Audio Bifrost 2

    you want to talk epic. When the Bifrost 2 is broken in I am going hook it up balanced to my Rogue RH-5 headphone amp preamp that should be really epic. The Rogue is a pretty awesome headphone amp. The rogue RH-5 is in a different universe.

I had a single ended cable from them a silver dragon with the furutech carbon fiber 1/4 inch jack and it sounded excellent. They are...

    well just got my bifrost 2 delivered today. Hooked it up balanced to my Jottenheim 2 which is a couple of weeks old now.
