    Perth! 2005 Mid-Year Meet?

    People are pretty much welcome to listen to any headphones or amps I have in stock as well (excluded headphones are canalphones, buds, models in packaging you have to destroy to open or models that are just a real pain to repackage). I have a few amps out on the road at the moment though so...

    Speaker/Source noob, please help.

    I would highly recommend DIY for speakers Before you run away screaming, have a look at www.theloudspeakerkit.com - it's in Leederville, you can go in and have a listen, you'll actually walk past me to get to the speakers as well In terms of performance - you'd be looking at kits that are...

    Which Grados are each of the Alessandro headphones based off of?

    According to Alessandro the MS-1 is closest to the SR125 - if you look at the specs of each (while specs mean little) they are identical other than sensitivity. I've tested and SR125 and an MS1 side by side and the differences between them are very subtle while the SR80 sounds very different...

    Cost of Headphones in Australia (& outside of U.S.)

    Cost of Headphones in Australia (& outside of U.S.)

    Just let it be known that any prices that seem spectacularly unreasonable here in Australia aren't that way because of the retail stores (unless you're paying rrp), it's because of the wholesalers being greedy. The first time I ever contacted the Oz distro for Grado products they wanted me to...

    Are the DT880s for Me?

    I don't like the K271S at all, I've heard several different pairs now as I thought the first 2 were faulty - I haven't found them worthy of any of the praise that I've read - quite the opposite in fact.

    K1k is in fact in stock at this time (ordered in for a customer who is happy for me to demo them as long as people take care), as is the L3k. We'll only be able to use the K1k with the OTL32/stock tubes though. Fridays are best for me, mid-late afternoon is good for me (say 3pm onwards) as we...

    Perth, WA. Head-fiers join together and listen

    Whatever is listed as "available now" on my website is in stock and available for audition, with one or two exceptions here and there If there's something specific people want to listen to I can probably get one in for the occasion, unless it's a high value item that I can't get locally (Twinhead).

    Dissapointing hd595

    Quote: Originally Posted by plainsong I guess it's all down to personal preference - because to my ears the HD595s should hang their drivers in shame whenever the dt531's are in the room. The dt531 is far more musical and involving, even if there is a slightly recessed midrange. It still...

    New storefront is nearly done I'm missing; 1x piece of glass for display cabinet (O'briens glass quoted me $266, I quoted them something less pleasant) - without this I can't put the more valuable display stock out. 1x computer : my old work computer died, will be getting one...

    Newbie Help HD555, HD595, HD600

    A Cmoy isn't going to be enough to properly drive something like the HD600/650 IMO. It's definitely worth considering as many alternatives as possible, I'd actually consider the Beyer DT880 to be less laidback for rock than the HD600/650 (but not as forward as the 595). I'd only consider the...

    DT531, DTX900 A500 or MS-1 - Quick decision needed!

    If you can get the DT531, do so I prefer them over all the other models you've listed in terms of sound, the only ones that might beat them in comfort are the AT's but the DT531s are very comfy indeed for me
