    TOUR: MHDT Labs Stockholm V2 NOS DAC tour! PCM56P-J R2R D/A chips, Bendix 2C51 Tube, 24/192 input

      Definitely. I'd advise everyone that is considering these DACs to look into info on external USB converters. The fact of the matter is, many of these USB inputs on DACs are an afterthought. Every DAC that I've tested has improved with a good USB converter. That is not to say that some DAC...

    TOUR: MHDT Labs Stockholm V2 NOS DAC tour! PCM56P-J R2R D/A chips, Bendix 2C51 Tube, 24/192 input

      Totally agree. Keeping a level perspective of products once one has experienced TOTL sound quality is tough. The best advice I can give those that read my thoughts is YMMV. Take everything that is read on the internet with a grain of salt. My standards and what I've come to expect from...

    TOUR: MHDT Labs Stockholm V2 NOS DAC tour! PCM56P-J R2R D/A chips, Bendix 2C51 Tube, 24/192 input

    Tone –    Highs:   Presentenced in a very non-intrusive way, the treble was never harsh or fatiguing – effortlessly smooth. Like other DACs I’ve heard with a similar balance there are trade-offs. The smoother presentation dulled some details and vocals didn’t seem to have that same “pop” or...

    TOUR: MHDT Labs Stockholm V2 NOS DAC tour! PCM56P-J R2R D/A chips, Bendix 2C51 Tube, 24/192 input

    DAC is inbound to the next tour member. Had a chance to get quite a bit of listening in this week, spring break! Will have write-up soon when I get a chance to write my notes down into a more constructive compilement.

    TOUR: MHDT Labs Stockholm V2 NOS DAC tour! PCM56P-J R2R D/A chips, Bendix 2C51 Tube, 24/192 input

      Swapped tubes for the AEG and things seem to be more to my liking. Still listening and comparing but so far, I'm impressed with what this DAC can do.    @Soundsgoodtome - The Tascam is a pretty nice unit. It's only being used as my mic pre and a   Definitely the best preamp section I've...

    LFF's Enigma (new from the maker of the Paradox)

      Bah, I'm no photographer but I took those. Glad you enjoyed the pictures nonetheless. Daigo is correct, that is a Rooms headphone stand (macassar ebony).

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

      I did, but that was purely for cosmetic craziness. Once you go black you never come back.

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

      It depends on what your definition of slam is. The control.. taughtness of the GS-X mk2 pairs nice with cans that have more bloom (i.e LCD-3, HE-500, etc.). With the HD800, none of that is needed. In fact, the bass sounds anemic and lacks authority. I've never professed to like the GS-X mk2...

    The HeadAmp GS-X and GS-X MK2 Thread

      The Stratus, 2A3, and S7 as a more budget friendly option are my top three in terms of best I've heard the HD800 per my preferences. Sold the Stratus simply for funding for something greater, and because I wasn't happy with the pairing with the HE-6 or LCD-3.

    The HeadAmp GS-X and GS-X MK2 Thread

      Lacks body for me, even paired with a warm DAC. Even a modded HD800, sound is too analytical and bland. Similar to Sneis' comments.
