    Liquid Platinum Tube Rollers.

    I would also recommend a pair of tubes from Brimar CV4003 from 1960s, because i have a matched pair that were bought from upscale audio. They are very similar to the mullards, but have a bit more air on top. A very balanced tube with sweet midrange. I happen to love it and there is also the...

    Monoprice Monolith Liquid Gold (X)

    I wanted to ask if anyone feels like his amplifier is worth purchasing if I already own the liquid Platinum with decent tubes installed, and I have some money I'm using in the hifiman Arya.

    Monolith M1570 Over Ear Open Back Balanced Planar Headphones

    Thanks that was what I am trying to figure out, I know the Pro iCan is supposedly a fantastic amp and if I had the 1500 to spend I would consider getting it just for future proofing my audio Chain. Unfortunately I do not have that kind of coin, and I have a few hundred I could spend I was...

    Monolith M1570 Over Ear Open Back Balanced Planar Headphones

    Hey, I have been jumping in between reading from the M1070 and M1570 threads, as well as some amp treads. I wanted to ask in case I missed the reference to the M1570 being paired with the Monolith Liquid Platinum, which I have owned for quite some time. I usually use my hifiman hp with it, but...

    Liquid Platinum Tube Rollers.

    So I have to come clean I was not on here at all the past 24 hours because m Sylvania 6922 came two days early without me knowing until it arrived.. And it sounds great! Much of what Wes said I would have to agree with was an accurate description, great powerful low end, clean and present...

    Liquid Platinum Tube Rollers.

    If you find or see another listing of the Sylvania d getter's will you post it to me, I looked around but I am not finding any d getter versions and i am not sure what color the label should be or if it matters in this particular instance(I am sure there are some sonic differences between...

    Liquid Platinum Tube Rollers.

    I believe you said the phillips miniwatt was your favorite right? that was the one I was mentioning. I am just looking for for a pair of tubes that very good I went to buy the ones on tubemonger, the Mullard CV3986 6021 - 1975 MINT with the 6922 adapter pre installed, but I was short for a...

    Liquid Platinum Tube Rollers.

    I wanted to ask Wes, if you were fine with sharing, how much was a pair of these 63 tubes because I found a pair of 62 tubes of same type(supposedly) shipping from Canada for 150$

    Liquid Platinum Tube Rollers.

    See personally feel the need to replace the tubes for that particular reason at least on decent recordings and the genres I have been listening to. I know though if you are looking for a slightly warmer tube that keeps detail and resolution someone here has tried and or owns it. This amp so far...

    Liquid Platinum Tube Rollers.

    Thanks for the information, I have actually been reading up on like web tube manual and the differences between some socket types and tubes being the voltage and that is why even though you can use tubes with adapters it is still good to check out like you were saying the parameters. See I was...

    Liquid Platinum Tube Rollers.

    From what I read and have seen and have talked about with a tube seller, if it is the so type ( which I believe shouldnt be a problem) and if you cannot find out if there Amperex 6922/ECC88 Orange Globes than perhaps invest in a socket saver and try them out in the LP. Amperex Orange Globes are...

    Liquid Platinum Tube Rollers.

    Hi I am newer to tube rolling, as in I have had a few tube amps in the past a couple hubrids and such as the alo pan am, little dot, Frontier, but I have never needed to or was open to trying out socket savers or adapters. I am going to be receiving the Liquid platinum in a couple days, and my...

    HIFIMAN Arya (& 2021 Stealth Magnet version) - Impressions Thread

    I would not describe the Arya as dull, it is neutral, with good spacious staging and detailed resolution. I also feel like compared something the the 58x (which too me is dull when comparing the two) I can see the LCD 3 being a different signature you may just prefer.

    HIFIMAN Arya (& 2021 Stealth Magnet version) - Impressions Thread

    I cannot compare on the Arya and Flow, but I did use the Ananda which I did enjoy but when I got the Arya I knew it was a better headphone for me overall. First the bass reaches down into lower frequencies than the Ananda, midrange is forward on the Ananda(so if you like that you will probably...

    HIFIMAN Arya (& 2021 Stealth Magnet version) - Impressions Thread

    I should correct myself in saying that what I really should of stated was particular recordings. Now, granted I didn't have the audio fatigue or issues with the upper midrange/lower treble that some had but on certain tracks it was not as enjoyable. I preferred my less expensive and less capable...

    HIFIMAN Arya (& 2021 Stealth Magnet version) - Impressions Thread

    Hey I just had a comment on this after reading what you wrote about the hex and the Ananda. I agree with the resolution and the sometimes too smooth character of the hex, and I also can understand what you mean about that Peak with the Ananda I actually owned that headphone before deciding to go...

    Once i receive my balanced cable this Saturday i still be print out a review of the arya from my balanced amp. So far i have really liked the arya for its detail, tone, ability to be enjoyable with all my music genes, and got it feels effortless with its delivery with many pieces.

    Acoustic Research AR-H1 Planar Impressions and Discussion thread

    So I recently have been listening to the Hifiman Ananda and I have to say that at the sub 500 price point that the AR-H1 is now fallen into it is one of the most competitive headphones for price/performance ratio that I have tried out. Now don't get me wrong the Ananda is awesome, detailed...

    Acoustic Research AR-H1 Planar Impressions and Discussion thread

    Yeah it does, like I said in my earlier post, I thought these were a very good pair of headphones from the first listen. Although I was not sure if they were for me for various small reasons, one being the clamp at first but with pushing my thumbs against the center of the metal band and pushing...

    Acoustic Research AR-H1 Planar Impressions and Discussion thread

    I wanted to write something in response to this yesterday, but two things prevented me: I was at work and I hate writing long rants when I am using my phones touch screen keyboard. So, I have been listening to the AR-H1 for around a year now, and when I first received this headphone I was using...

    = HiFiMAN HE-560 Impressions & Discussion Thread =

    Is it for only not class a amplifiers that are solid state design? Because I am pretty sure I have experienced something similar with my class A nfb 28, but then again it could be just my ear's adjusting to sound perhaps.

    = HiFiMAN HE-560 Impressions & Discussion Thread =

    The magni 3 is a class A solid state, correct? If that is the case then I have experienced this most of my class A amplifiers. They do get hot, and when they heat up after use they tend to sound better to my ears. I do not know if this is due science I am unaware of lol. I have read about it...
