    Does anyone have experience with the Kef LS50?

    I have no particular recommendation, but Oyaide, Taoc and DH are known to be quite good. Depending on context as of most stuff. Those stuffs in the link are just some pictorial references.   The whole idea is to transfer all the vibrations away from the speakers as immediate and as much as...

    Does anyone have experience with the Kef LS50?

    You don't need to get a micro stand. Get quality coupling or isolating support, including spike-base or vibration absorbing structure. Look at Oyaide, Taoc, DH Cones/squares and such. They make "day and night" difference as they always say. It is true. But as usual, spend your money prudently, I...

                Now, it seems that the challenge is not the cost, but sighting them on sale. They are really end-all preamp tubes. I wonder if any other amps, not necessarily headphone amps, were specified to use 6SJGT.

    Audio-gd NFB-10

    Get a devialet amplifier and you get a knob on the remote. If your screw is going to take some load, you need to first drill a hole, drive in a wall-plug, and then screw in your screw. Not required for hanging christmas socks, but for heavier and more expensive item, you better follow the...

    buttoned volume control is not a problem for me, nifty actually.

    Does anyone have experience with the Kef LS50?

    If I am to write a review of LS50 here, I am worried that it will fly them all off shelves in a flash. I have heard LS50 that sounds terrible and totally unacceptable though. Those who sold them can be understood perfectly. They can sound no bass, over bloated bass or shrilling trebles with bad...

    Audio-gd NFB-10

    Have not posted here for years, as I've gone into speakers. In 2009, I ordered the legendary 19MK3 (with PMD100), that arguably THE product that made Audio-gd well known in Head-fi, and perhaps the world. Four years on, I found myself needing a preamp to drive monoblocks for my speakers. And so...

    Quote:   I guess it boils down to luck, until some businessman put up ridiculous price for the rest to follow suit. Good for you!   Searched in Ebay, turn up nothing.

    La Figaro 339

    Quote: After some time, controlling the volume using two hands becomes 2nd nature, done in a second or less. I may have more problems without the two volume pot, than with. My signal splits into left and right after my DAC, via DV337, dual mono amp, speakers cables, then my speakers. The...

    Yo XMDKQ, Darkvoice maker, thanks for making such a great amp. As you can see in the picture, it now serves as both headphones amp and pre - amplifier for my speaker system. It is actually quite good as a preamp, why does your 339 now does not have a line out? I bought this amp in 2008 I think...

    JVC HP-DX1000 Owners Unite!

    Quote: A collector is not likely to sell this oddball. I'm definitely not a collector. The midrange can melt your heart. After listening to the DX1000, my other phones sound flat. I have to literally wait for the next day to refresh my taste buds, so that my other phones sound enjoyable...

    JVC HP-DX1000 Owners Unite!

    Quote: Sold to a nice gentleman. This was one of my most reluctant sale. But, it has to go. Maybe I should aim for a R10 to compensate myself in the future when I have more resources.
