    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    Regarding your request for decent amp plus good looks, I understand! If you are a big tube fan like me, (loved my Woo WA6-SE and regret selling it!), and want to stay around $200, you might look at this...

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    Hey Josh: You are a lucky guy to have those headphones. I have a pair of HiFiMan HE-500, and love them. Right now I am using a Chord Mojo, and it sounds great. However, before that I had a Woo Audio WA6SE, which replaced a Burson Soloist. Something extremely pleasing about tubes (you can...

    Resonessence Herus

    Teamjoe:   I can't thank you enough for that reply.  One of the better posts I have read in a long while, directly on point and informative.  Maybe you should become a reviewer!!!   Actually, what you say makes a ton of sense.  In my many years of swapping out equipment (almost never because...

    Resonessence Herus

    Hey Teamjoe:   Wish I would have seen this earlier!  In any event, I am interested in a portable DAC/headphone amp, so been looking at Herus, Audioquest Dragonfly Red and Meridian Explorer.  Since you had several and sold this one, I am wondering which one you kept and why. Don't mean to...

    Audia Flight Phono Preamp - Beautiful

    Audia Flight Phono.  This thing is beautiful, in perfect condition (no marks, scratch, blemish or anything).  I bought it from the Audia Flight dealer (their demo), and have put maybe 30 hours on it.  I absolutely love its sound, and if you read Fremer’s rave review in Stereophile you will know...

    The Woo Audio 6 SE: My Impressions *updated*

    Dubstep Girl:   Excellent input!  So helpful to have someone around that has tried various tubes.  I had not seen anyone mention the CV378, so good to have an opinion on it from someone that has heard it in this amp.  Now you make me want to try the Cossor!!.  Thanks for helping!!

    The Woo Audio 6 SE: My Impressions *updated*

    Great thread.  Sorry to join so late, but I understand from Jack that a CV378 rectifier can be used instead of the 274B.  I only mention it because I once owned an Art Audio PX25 amp that came with the Sophia Princess 274B as stock.  It was recommended to me that I replace it with a CV378 (don't...

    Review: Woo Audio WA6 vs. WA6SE (stock units)

    All: I think this thread has not been posted for some time, but I stumbled across it while researching, with an intent to purchase the WA6SE.  Reason for posting:  I once owned an Art Audio PX25 amplifier (single ended, using the PX25 tube for 6 whopping glorious watts).  It shipped with a pair...

    Burson Audio Soloist Headphone Amp / Preamp

    Burson Soloist – Headphon Amp / Preamp   One of the greatest headphone amps on the market, with a preamp output.   I bought this unit from an authorized dealer in October 2012, and barely touched it, so it is mint and no marks on it.  This is the full headphone amp with preamp, so three...

    Cary SLP-88 Preamp and SET Headphone Amp

    I have this posted over on Audiogon (search for Cary) where there are pictures.  Check my feedback under seldenr.   Then I remembered I could post it here, and would be happier (i.e., meaning a lower price) to sell it here, since it is a fantastic good headphone amp, that I have been using...

    Sennheiser HD 700: Officially Unveiled at CES 2012!

    Any chance you will give us a more detailed comparison of the Audeze LCD-2 and the HD700?  I have an ancient set of Audio Technica planar headphones (with the transformer for connecting them directly to the speaker outlets of an amplifier), and although they are not the last word in cans...

    HIFIMAN HE-400 Planar Headphones Pre-order

    Nankai:  Can you comment on the sound difference between these and the other HiFiman offerings?  And which of these headphones would work being driven by a Cary SLP-88 preamp/headphone amp?  Keep up the great work!!!

    High end DACs assistance

    Some great information from Bones.  My experience with DACs (and I auditioned the W4S Dac2 in my system) tells me he is spot on, with special importance being on the analogue output stage.  In my simple opinion that is the most important, and a distinct difference.  Instead of using an op amp...

    New to the headphone game and need some solid advice from fellow audiophiles

    Forgive me if I am way off base, but I have been a crazy man audiophile for most of my adult life (even if there are those that would argue I have not begun an adult life).  I have been tied to physical format (lots of vinyl, CDs, SACDs and DVD-A discs), and being a semi-serious musician I value...
