    Silver Dragon broke again any other suggestions

    Ive had 2 silver dragons fail on me. Drew was kind enough to send me his pair to listen to, but unfortunately that failed as well. On the 650s, I found that the silver dragon was the best sounding. The equinox was lacking weight, the blue dragon was nice but lacking sparkle(I mean in...

    Cary Audio Design!

    Yes, Im kinda surprised at bhd12s assesment of the cary. I havent yet heard a better headphone amp. This includes supras, MOH's (with the 04 module very damn good though...) preheads, hr-2s, etc.. etc.. they were all found lacking compared to the cary 300 sei I owned. That amp was truely...

    Best CD Player in the $2000 - $3500 Range Used...

    If its dynamics, and PRAT you are looking for, along with strong bass response, Id definately check out the Ikemi. That was my favorite cdp out of any Ive owned including an scd-1, sacd mods 555es, and(at least in the high end catagories, well for your average joe high end....)a metronome cv-2...

    Does the Silver Dragon Senn. cable have enough bass?

    Im using a cheapy sony dvd player with a corda prehead and the silver dragon cables and it has great bass. If you want more, you might want to try another cable though. Have you heard the resolution differences as well? The olbach probably gave much less resolution in the lower bass area. When...

    got the 2004 headroom max with attenuator

    Interesting. I thought the MOHR I just returned was damn excellent, but Id give a slight nod to the prehead. Perhaps those transformers and attenuators make the difference. But at 3 times the cost I think id get more gains buying a new source...(which Im gonna have to do anyway since Im...

    Should I get my C555ES modify or by a used Sony SCD-777ES/XA777ES??
