    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    I have to give the nod to a well driven 007mk1 it terms of bass from an overall perspective. The Teton and Ravenswood with the hd800 comes close but ultimately falls short. The hd800's biggest standout to me is its crappy treble. Might leave your ears ringing if you pair with a dry SS amp or...

    Headphones vs Speakers -- an Inconvenient Truth

      I ran the sub8 at 80hz. Didn't use it a whole lot. Anything beyond 1/4th power and it started to drown out the A7x's which I ran at half power. Still for certain songs it was nice to have and I really enjoyed the remote that came with it. I turned the bass down just a smidge and the mids up a...

    Headphones vs Speakers -- an Inconvenient Truth

      I had A7x's and Sub8 for five years. One of the biggest mainstays I have ever had in my dj/casual listening station. Most gear does not last over a couple months. Great speakers and I also enjoy the Kendrick audio on youtube. They mostly specialize in JBL but I have seen other brands from...

    Reply to review by 'jibzilla' on item 'Inspire by Dennis Had IHA-1 Dragon Version'

    I highly recommend 6SN7w's from VTS. Purk liked TSRP in my peak/volcano but I have tried that and b65 and preferred 6SN7w. The Apex sound and Inspire sound quite a bit alike to my ears as well. Clean and crisp with just a bit of lushness to make it engaging. Really wonderful. I have had the...

      Tell that to Sony R10/ Stax Original Omega owners.

    Headphones vs Speakers -- an Inconvenient Truth

      I have the opposite opinion but to each his own. I think it depends very much on the times and what is the main media of that time. Had I suggest spending 4 figures on a laptop, TV or video games I doubt you would have anything to say with me being out of touch. From what I can see amongst my...

    Headphones vs Speakers -- an Inconvenient Truth

      Where the other photos were over the top speaker wise this seems a little bit over the top room wise.

    Headphones vs Speakers -- an Inconvenient Truth

    For me headphones is a personal experience where speakers are a shared experience. Still I like a shared experience when it's just me in the room sometimes. I think it mostly boils down to soundstage (speakers) and detail (headphones) but I do not think that is the whole story. My hd800's are...

    Headphones vs Speakers -- an Inconvenient Truth

      It is off topic. The only thing it is enhancing is your fanboyism for it which we have gotten for some time now. To keep going on and on about it is essentially calling the rest of us ignorant especially when asked politely to stop. Again we get it and please stop. If you wanna bring it up...

    Headphones vs Speakers -- an Inconvenient Truth

    You made your point now can you please let this go. I am so sick of hearing about equalizer's. The hd800 thread is now the Sonar works 3 thread thanks to this garbage.

    Headphones vs Speakers -- an Inconvenient Truth

      I ended up getting Sony APM 4's and WOW. I know it is new toy syndrome and all but WOW. Lets just say my amazing experience with vintage japan TT's continues. The Adam's were great for what they were but they are getting dramatically not subtly beaten right now.   Could very well be the...

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

      I ran a Pavane (used) and Teton (new/hd800 combo deal). Total $8kish. Still thought it was good for the money and that is compared to many more expensive headphones with around the same $8k spent with dac and amp factored in.   I downgraded but not by allot.
