    Nice work! Great photos and write-up. I would encourage all V6/7506 owners to consider this great, cheap, and easy mod.

    You too can join the Bose-o-phile club! Click here: You know you've arrived when you fly in "Bose Class". This contest illustrates that Bose-snob attitude that people have mentioned here. Snobbery is always annoying (and I'm sure I'm guilty of it...

    Quote: Originally Posted by fewtch Hey cool, a pair of K501s was there. Anyone listen, and have an opinion? I love these cans, but I suspect they would give a poor first impression under meet conditions, for various reasons. I was eager to try these cans. I was surprised at how...

    I'm happy to chip in and I'm looking forward to the meet. Let me know! Planning to bring: cans and amps in my sig. Maybe the NEC CD player, but it's nothing special, just to have an extra source there.

    Rare Moment of Headphone Satiety

    Last night, listening to Cowboy Junkies Trinity Sessions with my very modest but enjoyable K240S and Little Dot II, I had a rare experience: it was perfect. I thought, "I've been contemplating a big sell-off, consolidation of headphone equity, and upgrade, but does it really need to be better...

    Whats the attraction of modern PCDP's?

    I don't have much of my music ripped at all, just a few gigs of novelty (A-Team theme), nostalgia (2 Live Crew "Me So Horny") or one-off MP3s. One attraction of the PCDP for me is that I don't spend time ripping, organizing, re-encoding to 320kbps, correcting ID3tags, playlisting, buying new...

    Little Dot III?

    I was part of the ipodstudio group buy for the LDII, and although I love the sound of the amp, I agree 100% with MikeW's post #2 above. From my experience, the runaround and hassle that shochu describes is just the tip of the iceberg. IMHO, these amps and this builder have a LOT of potential...

    PCDP for Sister-in-Law?

    My sister-in-law's PCDP recently died, and we want to get her a PCDP for Xmas. Ideally: * Most importantly, sturdy build quality * somewhat "cool", or at least less dorky * $50 or less, new or used * relatively easy to find online/ebay, etc. SQ is not a criteria at all. Remember, this...

    E2C Mod Gone Bad...Careful

    Sorry to hear that the kramermod went bad. Good for you to have the courage to try the mod, though! Ya win some, ya lose some, and this way you have an excuse for the upgrade.

    Replacement cap specs for Little Dot II tube amp?

    I don't know how many of you might have been following the catastrophic saga of the Little Dot II tube amp group buy over at ipodstudio (, involving a ~75% failure rate of the amps in the group buy. (The failures start cropping up around page 22...
