    Denon AH-D9200 - 2018 Flagship - Impressions Thread

    Soundstage doesn't just happen out of the blue. You need quality gear upstream, high resolution DAC and powerful amp with lots of headroom and a high damping factor. The better you can control the drivers, the better your staging will be. That takes power. You don't necessarily need a tube...

    Lovely price, definitely priced to sell! Love my Pontus II. Wish I needed another one of these, but I'm looking for a Terminator. GLWS.

    Denon AH-D9200 - 2018 Flagship - Impressions Thread

    Yeah, lol, never fear. The D9200 is an incredible headphone. My favorite closed-back under $2k by a longshot.

    Mid priced IEM cables thread.

    Yet another update on this cable. I've been listening to it on and off for the entire day (between bathroom renovations and eating meals, LOL), and I am going to emphasize my opinion that this cable is a serious performer. Imagine your favorite UPOCC copper cable, of a substantial gauge...

    Mid priced IEM cables thread.

    Hey, just to follow up on this, I figured I'd roll the dice and give it a shot. Bought the $206 2-core cable, silver in color. Got it today. Cable is solid, but very comfortable and I can't even feel it when I'm wearing my IEMs. Right away, I noticed a huge, huge 3D soundstage and very full...

    Mid priced IEM cables thread.

    The fact that most people seem to favor proto 38 tells me that most IEMs are tuned towards the bright side of things to coax more detail out of them. But personal preference seems to lean towards a fuller, bass-tilted sound. For V-shaped IEMs, the bass is too bloated and heavy with 38. I just...

    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    So all the cables I've accumulated for my Timeless are going to be worthless if I upgrade to the V2? Lol, yeah I probably won't bother upgrading if that's the case. A shame they seemingly turned their backs on their existing customers by making the new model incompatible. I've got way more...

    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    What would they make this one 2-pin? For folks who want to "upgrade" from their Timeless, it means they have to re-buy new cables. Both the Timeless and Eternal are MMCX. This makes no sense.

    Let me just say that your pictures are amazing and that you could be a hand model, a' la George Costanza. Really nice pictures. How did you take them? Good luck with the sale. Oddly, I might actually be interested.... !

    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    Ok, as long as I'm on the forum, I might as well post another impression of the Timeless. I've spent the last 2 hours listening to a couple of albums, progressing from my headphones, first my Denon AH-D9200 to my Kennerton Magni to my Timeless with copper/graphene cable, to my Timeless with...

    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    Unless you have multiple units to compare each one against, on a timed basis, then burn-in is a subjective impression of your memory only. If someone doesn't like what they hear after 50 hours, and lets the IEM burn in another 150 hours, and then after 200 hours they like what they hear, then...

    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    Timeless does not like to be "cranked up loud". Try lowering the volume to a "medium" level, or even less, and give it a long listen. I think you'll be impressed with the increase in spatial sense and layering. The planar element is fast and precise, but not powerful. It doesn't move a lot of...

    Effect Audio cables thread

    In the spirit of paying it forward, and as a small token of my gratitude to Effect Audio for allowing me the privilege of reviewing these two cables, I am going to happily forward the Prototype 38 (copper) cable to the first person to PM me their shipping address (within the continental USA) so...
