  2. (Price drop!) 64 Audio U12T SOLD!

    I have a pair of Pristine U12T with box and accessories that I purchased new in March. These do not have a lot of listening time on them at all and are basically new. I recently purchased a new car and a new laptop and well something has to go. I do not want to sell these but need the cash...

    Audio-gd NFB-28

    I think i get it now, so H - Fast mode is less gain then L - Slow mode?

    Audio-gd NFB-28

    I'm kind of confused between the different gain modes on the 28.38. So there is H- Fast, L - Slow, F - Full and S - Super. What is order from lowest gain to highest gain setting, is H > L > F > S? What is the difference between power, output of each gain mode?

    The Official Sony TA-ZH1ES Hi-Res Headphone Amplifier (Live From IFA 2016)

    The reason i'm considering the TA is because i don't like the bright and clinical sound of the Oppo too much. I heard the TA is much warmer which is why i am considering

    The Official Sony TA-ZH1ES Hi-Res Headphone Amplifier (Live From IFA 2016)

    Yes this is what i thought too, it is nice to have that extra 400mw but yes it might struggle to make the HE-6 sound right. they do sound okay out of my Oppo but it's pretty much at max on the volume dial on high gain with very little headroom left. I suppose the Sony would be better but just.

    The Official Sony TA-ZH1ES Hi-Res Headphone Amplifier (Live From IFA 2016)

    Oh i'm surprised i thought the ZH1ES for sure had a more powerful amp then the Oppo

    The Official Sony TA-ZH1ES Hi-Res Headphone Amplifier (Live From IFA 2016)

    Does the ZH1ES get up there in the volume range though? i like to listen to my music loud and am concerned it might not have enough power to say drive a HE-6 comfortably?

    Sony Z1R....listening impressions only

    Thanks for the replies guess i have some more listening to do, i'm curious about the Sony TA-ZH1ES how does it pair with the Z1R and other high end cans? I saw a few deals on them and was wondering it would be a noticeable upgrade over my Oppo HA-1 or if i'll just be wasting my money?

    The Official Sony TA-ZH1ES Hi-Res Headphone Amplifier (Live From IFA 2016)

    would getting the Sony TA-ZH1ES be an upgrade over my Oppo HA-1?? I found a deal on one but if i got it then i will have to sell my HA-1 and i don't know much about the sony so any thoughts on what is a better amp/dac combo?

    Sony Z1R....listening impressions only

    I think you might be onto something, maybe there is a correlation where Z1R owners are more likely to exhibit bad behavior. Could this be some effect that the sound signature of the Z1R is having upon us, perhaps the baseline is just too aggressive? Or the 10k treble spike is too blame? :astonished:

    Sony Z1R....listening impressions only

    Just sold my HD800S and bought a new pair of Z1R's, so far i'm liking them but i need more time to formulate my thoughts. Immediately i can tell i prefer the comfort of the Z1R over the HD800S. My ears are a little bit hotter but hardly a big deal, the HD800S used to hurt the top of my head like...

    I also have a question for anyone using these dekoni earpads https://dekoniaudio.com/product/dekoni-audio-epz-hd800-fnsk-fenestrated-sheepskin-ear-pads-for-sennheiser-hd800-headphones/ I see that these have their own dust cover attached to them. For those of you who have tried these, did you...

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    I too am not a fan of the stock pads but i have been hesitant to change them based on people saying the sound signature gets changed too much with other pads. I have considered the Dekoni ones but these are where some of the claims have come from. I have to order these right now and give them a...

    The 600's are noticeably easier to drive and don't require as much amperage as the 800's to drive.

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    Most certainly, i have an HA-2 and it drives it quite nicely. Doesn't open it as much as some other more powerful amps, but no issues driving it.

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    I've never understood how some people can skimp on pads with high end headphones. HD800s is a $1700 headphone so why cheap out and buy $40 pads for it when you can spend a bit more and get proven quality. I don't get it.

    Schiit Gungnir DAC

    I'm listening with the LCD-3, HD-800S and LCD-XC primarily. I noted that i do prefer the gumby ever so slightly maybe 1% more, i just don't notice much of a difference between the two dacs.

    Schiit Gungnir DAC

    I think that the audible pleasure i'm sacrificing with the gumby is too small (at least for me) to notice. I've been listening for a few weeks now with the Ha-1 and my ears are very happy to say the least. I'm definitely planning on keeping the OPPO. I think i'm going to sell the gumby and keep...
