    Just got the HD650 and having mixed feelings, help!

    Quote: :D   The room is slightly treated with a bit of 15cm deep basstraps with paper membrane in the front, but you are correct - that is part of the effect. I guess the fact that the rest of the range is so musical in the HD650 except for the bass extension just makes it plainly...

    Just got the HD650 and having mixed feelings, help!

    Hi All   I just "upgraded" from the DT880 250ohm to the HD650 after like 5-6 years with the Beyers. Beyond the fact that there seems to be distortion in the left driver (arg! never buy second hand from Amazon again...) the headphone sounds AWESOME. Compared to the DT880, the soundstage is...

    Need DAC w/output decoupling. Advice please

    Hi   Thanks for the replies. I was hoping that perhaps there is a DAC that will solve these issues for me and clean the sound for the amp (currently using a PCI EMU 0404). I will try to install the caps instead of the wires and update.   Thanks

    Need DAC w/output decoupling. Advice please

    Hi   Thanks for the input. But why do I have to disconnect the white wires? Isn't doing what I did going to give the same effect?

    Need DAC w/output decoupling. Advice please

    Hi guys   Really need some assistance here.. breaking my head over this one. I have zero electronics knowledge so please talk to me in laymen's terms. Much appreciated :)   I have a Burson PI-100 integrated stereo amp. I watch movies on this thing, so I feed it DTS downmixed to stereo...

    Upgrade from DT880 2005?

    I have decided to probably get me another DT880 (250ohm, as I don't see a reason to spend more on the 600ohm version). Was wondering if there's a SS amp that is recommended to go with the DT880? I don't mind the treble too much. I would like something that will bring out the bass + soundstage...

    Upgrade from DT880 2005?

    First of all, thanks for all your replies @kool bubba: I have been eyeing the DT48 because its price is good and available in europe. Is the 25ohm version good? Is it comfortable? @CDBacklash: I have never heard the ER4P. How would you say they differ from the DT880 (SA5000)? @Donald...

    Little Dot MK III: An Exclusive Review (56k warning!)

    I think everyone wants to know how this amp compares to the DV 336i. I personally would like to know how it pairs up with the DT880

    [REVIEW] Beresford TC-7510 MKIII DAC (56k warning)

    I think it's a shame... I really like soundstage and was actually what I was looking for. I have mailed Stanley about this issue - if it doesn't resolve itself then I will sadly return the DAC.

    [REVIEW] Beresford TC-7510 MKIII DAC (56k warning)

    I have just received the Beresford Mk4. First impressions are mixed (while using my DT880) compared to my EMU 0404 PCI: Pro's : Bass is alot tighter and more prominent, highs aren't so ear-bleeding (I can actually listen to Alanis Morissette now), detail is excellent. Mids are also alot more...

    Crossroads Mylar Three, Super.fi sound?

    Can someone say whether the Mylar X3 can be used with a GoVibe V5S with regular gain? Will this cause a lot of noise? Must know before I purchase :P

    [REVIEW] Beresford TC-7510 MKIII DAC (56k warning)

    The Beresford is $180 due to the fact that in Europe the price includes taxes (so it adds up to $200~). I also paid $180 and I live in Israel. He also sells his patented Toslink 1m cable for $10. You can ask for longer lengths. And no, I haven't received my Beresford yet
