    How old, and what year did you get into tubes?

    My first tube amp was a mere 5 months ago. D: LD MKII, purchased roughly 2 weeks after my 18th birthday. I've since made a considerable step up to my SP MPX3 SLAM toaster.

    If you were to do it all over again, what would it be?

    I would go to the HD580 much quicker than I did, and go tubes much quicker than I did.

    How often do you guys upgrade/buy new headphones?

    About one every three months. I think I'm sticking with the HD580s for a while though, I'm loving them more than I can say.

    Your nomination for best VALUE headphones around....

    Gotta back up the HD580. $150 for sound like this is incredible.

    Official ChiUniFI 2 Thread November 8th 2008

    Changed my equipment, my LD is being sold, and I've got a toaster-style MPX3 SLAM coming in. (Aura's, actually. )

    Great deal on HD580

    They're very balanced, even representation across the sound spectrum. Probably more bass than the K701, but it's not at all bloated or sloppy. They just sound... right. Detailed, even, slightly warm, and a very refined presentation. I love mine, and I can't think of a better headphone deal than...

    SS or tubes for Sennheiser 580?

    I agree with the others, tubes are the way to go. They really liven up the Senns, which would otherwise be too slow and boring for my tastes.

    Does it make sense to have HD580 and HD650 at same time

    No. HD600 and HD580 sound basically identical. Same drivers, just a different cable and different grilles.

    Corda Symphony info and impressions

    Looks great, the black/silver motif really works. So what do you guys think for price? $1700-2000?

    Corda Arietta good with HD600?

    I had a Headfive(arietta) with my HD580, and it was good, but not very lively. I'd look at tube amps in that price range, I'm much happier with my MKII/HD580 combo than I was with the Headfive.

    Review of the Little-Dot MKII Tube Headphone Amp/Pre-Amp

    The bass will start getting a lot better in a few hours, Meliboeus. Deeper, tighter, and punchier.

    how do you stop your dog from barking?

    We tried a bunch of things with our collie, but the only thing that got her to stop barking constantly was... another dog. She still barks at squirrels and such, but it's not a 24/7 stream.
