    FitEar TO GO! & Universal Series --- Suyama's custom IEM, made universal!

    Quote:   Yeah, for the price of the mod, I decided to sell the DACPort, buy a DACPort LX and put the saved more toward a better amp section.  The UHA6S.  I sold the DACPort LX due to packaging, complexity and cost versus benefit but I do miss it.  One of the few things I sold that I miss.

    Schiit DACs (Bifrost and Gungnir down, one to go)? The information and anticipation thread.

    Quote:   It also depends on which/what SPDIF is going into the DAC.  It's not just the DAC side you have to worry about.  I've have 4 different optical outs in front of me and they all sound different.  YAY digital!!

    FitEar TO GO! & Universal Series --- Suyama's custom IEM, made universal!

    Hear's a simple experiment for people that think FR defines a speakers/headphones/earphones sound.  Listen to a set of non crap speakers w/o the grills on.  Remember that sound.  Now put the grills back on and use whatever EQ you like to make it sound like the grills are off.  You can't.

    New/future Soderbergh movie, 8.8/10.  Can't say more, NDA.    Favorite Soder movie since the Limey.

    I seriously don't get these newer velour pads.  I have found ZERO use for them.  Ended up fixing a HFI580 by replacing some Beyer velours that they never came w/ from the factory.  Maybe the TMAIAIAIA is a good velour candidate?

    Who still has the Sony SA5000?

    I know Vectran was blended into the bio-cellulose of the CD2000 which I owned.  It was not a pure vectran or bio cellulose driver and I know Sony has used it different degrees for their driver material in their model lineups in the past.      Seems like Vectrn and LCP share simliar chemical...

    Quote:   What's your budget?   For me resolution, imaging and spatiousness are supreme HD800 qualities.  Anything in front of them should not get in the way of those aspects and play to those strengths.  Hopefully w/o messing up the proper balance and low end capabilities the HD800 is...

    Who still has the Sony SA5000?

    First thought I had as well.  I don't think it would be that hard to get the 'star' out.  Couldn't sound worse at all and am familiar w/ the difference between the 558 and 598 which are more extreme examples.   Last I saw the driver specs it was the CD2000 and below which was using Vectran...

    Brief Odac impressions

    Quote:   Oh it affects them too, if it matters to you.  If I put my amp next to my DSL/router I can hear it (clicking) through my headphones even though WiFi is disabled.

    Unique Melody Platform Pure 6 (PP6) - review (1st post), discussion, appreciation, & tour thread

    Well yes harmonically but I'd assume not in equal magnitude.  We'll see.

    5khz probably isn't such a bad place as that's a very sensitive sibilance zone/upper mid peak for most.

    Who are you talking to?   I remember talking to someone there via email about using Lavender oil and they mentioned I should only use OtoEase as that is what they come with.  I informed them that OtoEase uses Lavender oil and they replied "Oh".  >.<   Sadly, the new stuff has now...

    AKG K3003 — Impressions, Reviews & Discussion

    Can we avoid a lot of this by looking at IR or no?   Still, these wouldn't account for tonal differences percieved between driver types which is the other consideration.

    Less treble and more bass than LCD3?  Count me out.  I'll have to have a listen to know for sure of course.   @cooper   How's the 334 treble compare to the ES5?

    AKG K3003 — Impressions, Reviews & Discussion

    Quote:   Most IEMs (especially DD) have a port hidden somewhere.  Fully sealed DD's have tons of bass like the Monsters.  Down side is the suction which was strong enough to even deform/damage the Monster transducers.
