    Now available and a loaner program...

    Perfectly valid reason. So sorry to hear about your injury. For a swift recovery    Todd, because of this delay, could you just tell #5 on the list to send it back to you? There's no way it'll arrive in time, and I don't want the precious Nomad to get knocked around in a college post counter...

    Who has the lil' Nomad right now? (haha, I just realized the VPI Nomad is being a nomad right now, traveling around to all of us ) Mine needs to arrive at least before I head back to school; I can ship it back from school, but I'll loose to much time if it arrives at my house after I've left.

    Is there a newsletter or society for people who believe that headphone amplifiers are largely redundant scam products?

    Haven't been able to read everything since my last post, but as I tried to catch up, I came up with a little phrasing:   A DAC is to music files as an amp is to headphones.  Each helps to better present something.  If we could plug our headphones straight into our music, that would be ideal...

    Is there a newsletter or society for people who believe that headphone amplifiers are largely redundant scam products?

    OP, two issues I can think of in your setup:   1. You're amping the HD 800 with a freakin' O2. Although some say that combo works well, and it should certainly be better than your laptop's amp, I doubt the O2 is driving the HD800 to it's potential (keep in mind, I've never heard the HD800)...

    Off topic, but that's FREAKIN GORGEOUS    Also, thanks Jerg for finding the article on reviewed.com! I had just stopped scouring the internet for info when they published that.

    Hifiman HE-400i and HE-560: From CES to Pre-Launch

    Thanks so much, Jerg! Those do look like the actual product rather than renders, and the headband looks significantly more comfortable than in the Cnet photos.

    Show us your Head-Fi station at it's current state. No old pictures please...

    ^ Yup. While the higher-end models definitely aren't for everyone, the entry-level models are pretty much the best starter cans out there. (not that SO needs starter cans  but something nice for his iPod)

    Yes. The "modded PS3 rips" are actually rips from SACDs.

    Looks pretty glorious to me! I really do need to move everything into an armoire.

    Aw, Jeff, I remember when you were just a lil' Head-Hi'er.  Now look at you, Mr. Headphoneus Supremus. :') I don't think your cans have changed all that much though :P Nice to see how the rest of the rig has come along though.

    NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!!

    The 8x rule is for maximum power, but evidently, the MA-900 gets just the right amount of power from that output power and impedance.  You can, technically, use headphones on an amp with an output impedance higher than that of the headphones, but you'll run into clipping and be loosing a lot of...

    NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!!

        And I'm guessing it would have to go on the top of the stack...... the Magni already got the air around it toasty after a while running, I'd imagine this'll get MUCH hotter.

    NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!!

    The tube in this thing has a bunch of filaments at the end that you need to lace into the amp.  Methinks machinery could build this one better.  I don't think Jason and Co. are putting fairy dust into these when they make them by hand.   P.S. Look what Head-Fi wants to correct your username...

    Alright, let's not turn this into a drug debate. Stay on topic, ppl! (www.dancesafe.org tho)     I've always wondered how they (and the HE-400) sound with EDM!

    All of the artists were forced to use UrbanEars  and they were selling them at the merch tables.  I do hope you get the opportunity at some point! Although being in Sweden, you probably have better events with the same artists closer to home

    Bought Dt770's off ebay...

    B&H, so mine was definitely legit  That picture was not of mine, mine has since been sold, but why do you think that there should be three wires? Are you thinking left/right/ground?
