    The Christiansen "DG" 300B Amplifier Build Thread

    There are a handful of things that can be swapped or upgraded (output resistors / caps come to mind). You don't need to (the amp is well designed, and the BOM is solid), but you can if you want to squeeze more out of it. I went with custom Silk power and output transformers - c-core. Don't have...

    The Christiansen "DG" 300B Amplifier Build Thread

    Not Sceleratus, but I'm pretty confident he (and Tom, the designer provider of this information) wouldn't mind. I've built the same amp, and Sceleratus and I but implemented the same basic 'LPAD' circuit that Tom provided. I've attached it below. This allows us to switch between speaker taps and...

    Norne Audio (Was: Norse Audio): Feedback & Impression Thread

    Thought it proper to chime in here regarding the new S2 cable, as it's possible I may have the first one in the wild. As a user of the Silvergarde S, I was curious if the S2 would address the few 'nits' I had with the Silvergarde (which itself was the best silver cable I'd heard to date). My...

    Official HIFIMAN HE1000 Impressions Thread

    I've owned Silver Dragons, and now own a Norne Silvergarde; I can tell you with certainty that one of these is not like the other one (sonically). Nornes pure stranded silver cables are a cut above, with none of the thin, brittle, harsh sonics that other silver cables often bring.

    Heh. Yea, I was scratching my head on that one too.

    Torpedo III Build Thread

    Awesome Tom! This amp is unique (sonically, design), and non-builders should have a chance at it.

    Dsavitsk/Beezar Torpedo Build Thread

    Hmm, thanks Doug. T3 must be quite an amp - I've heard L2 a few times and really liked it. I'll take your advice though, T3 it is.

    6/27/15 Denver CO meet impressions

    Thanks a bunch for rounding this up Steve (Asr)!   Just got back from the airport; had to leave a bit earlier than I wanted to pick up the wife.   Bottom line: great meet! I have some photos I'll upload sometime this weekend.

    Official HIFIMAN HE1000 Impressions Thread

    I think some actual beta testers are struggling a bit with describing how this headphone performs. The combination of driver surface area, extremely low mass, new / optimized magnet structure - we're experiencing a headphone that can respond extremely quickly to impulse, without the 'edges'...

    Official HIFIMAN HE1000 Impressions Thread

    Well, another data point then; I have the HD800, listened to the HE-6 for years - I do not hear the HE-1000 as slower than those. Here's another way to think of it; for this headphone to handle sub-bass as it does with the very high level of detail in mids/highs; it has to be pretty damn fast.

    Official HIFIMAN HE1000 Impressions Thread

      There's nothing remotely slow about the HE-1000; it's lightning quick.

    Heh. Mines on a truck for delivery to Greenwood Village. I wonder how many Yggy's are being delivered in the Denver area today?

    HIFIMAN Flagship Headphone HE1000 Beta Testing Opportunity Complete - Feel free to still comment

    A few points to add...   * Some are disillusioned with Head-fi, may need to leave. * Same will likely never buy Hifiman again - at least until the HE-1000's out and sounds awesome.   :-)

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    Em. No. Just for laughs, when you see Jason at a meet - tell him you agree with him that DSD is da bomb.

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    Nope, no DSD for Ygg. As someone who has a 10TB DSD ISO collection, I could care less - it's that good at PCM.

    AKG K812 Pro

    I've listened to my 812 with my iDSD Micro; it drives it very well. While not as dynamic or quite as resolving as my high end chain, It seemed a pretty good pairing to me.

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    I predict they'll sell everyone they can make for quite some time. Those who have had time with it understand what it is - that it's in a class by itself.

    iFi iDSD Micro DSD512 / PCM768 DAC and Headphone Amp. Impressions, Reviews and Comments.

    iFi - if I can ask; will these units really be in stock soon? Seems a most sellers are in 'any day now' mode.

    You should hear them with a Mainline Frank - very very nice.
