    Whats your view on B&O Equipment

    HE60 adapter question

    That looks like a good "quick" way to do it if you don't want to build the circuit board. One thing on the resistor...after comparing HeadphoneAddict's pair of HE60 which we believe to have no resistor to my pair with the 5M ohm resistor, we felt the sound on the pair with the resistor was...

    Burmester 011 has a headphone jack

    Hmmm, I wonder if they have the prototype kicking around. Any idea if it got that far?

    Burmester 011 has a headphone jack

    I vaguely recall such a product but never saw a prototype or any information on it. It would have been interesting (not to mention expensive and very shiny).

    B&W Diamond Series Loudspeakers (diamond tweeter)

    The finest diamond tweeters are manufactured by Accuton in Germany and used in the Avalon Sentinel/Isis/Diamond, and many of the other "big guns" out there. I have not been nearly as impressed with B&W's effort by comparison as they seemed to jump on the Diamond bandwagon more for marketing...
