    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    Glad to hear they' sound good / are running good off of an inexpensive JDS Labs amp. I have one of their Objective2 amps and that could be another way to go if the Atticus doesn't like my Emotiva BasX.

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    Yussssss! I'll throw you a message when I return from my work trip next week. I'd love to bring my own source / amplification along to see if your cans will pair with my existing equipment (if that sort of thing is allowed...) - maybe do an A/B comparison between my Primes and your closed backs?

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    I don't think it's a power issue, at least, not lack of power. The A-100 is an absolute tank. The T50RP runs at 50 ohms, and the A-100 puts out 8.5 WATTS per channel at that impedance. The muddiness only occurs on certain rock / metal tracks. They're ridiculously clear the rest of the time...

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    Haven't heard the 650s; don't know anyone around here that has them, unfortunately. Glad the power handling on the Atticus would be good with the BasX juice; and as for the sound being different on each amp, I won't know the difference as it'll be the only amp I pair it with :D I have an old...

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    *** I wish I could demo the Atticus before selling off my current set of cans in case I don't care for them. They're definitely not for everyone. Perhaps I'll just pick up a set second-hand and sell my current set on the back end... (else face never-ending wife wrath) Also - would an Emotiva...

    Emotiva A-100

    Absolutely lol - for now, this combo is my 'end-game' - I may get the itch for some of Dan's other products when the price starts to drop or I can find a set used (Ether Flow C). These Primes sound pretty nice and were definitely worth the upgrade from the standard Mad Dog. The bad part is...

    MrSpeakers Alpha PRIME: Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Steve Canfield from Mr. Speakers said 200 hrs burn in, so just following directions. I'm listening to them during the day and I'll just let them roll loudly over night. As for the pads, they get them from China, so unless the Chinese stop producing them...

    Emotiva A-100

    That's reassuring - you're pretty much using the same setup as I will be and you've got no hiss. Excellent. I'll be running FLAC from an iBasso DX90. For once, I'm going to be excited to go to work on a Friday morning :)

    Emotiva A-100

    Yeah, volume is set at a quarter. Any more and these M50s will explode. Can't wait for the Primes - they're gonna sing :D

    Emotiva A-100

    A little background: I'm coming from an O2 amp + Mad Dog, a combination I've used for several years. I sent the Dog's in for Dan's 'Prime' upgrade back in February. They're scheduled to arrive on Thursday, finally. I have my new Emotiva A-100 sitting at the office waiting for the Alpha...
