    Stax Headphones Compatible DAC & AMP

    Do you think you could find out the model number or post a picture of the headset and adapter?  Also, how cheap are you looking to go?

    Dallas, TX - Sunday, September 29th, 2013 - "Big Tex Wears Headphones Too" meetup

      I don't know how early I'll arrive, but I'm kinda just planning on bringing my HD800 and my protractor.  We'll see.

    Dallas, TX - Sunday, September 29th, 2013 - "Big Tex Wears Headphones Too" meetup

    Oh, I'll be there. Just not completely positive that I'll bring a bunch of great with me. Likewise. I'm not sure if I'll be going to RMAF again this year, so I don't know if we'll have another opportunity to catch up again Amy time soon.

    Dallas, TX - Sunday, September 29th, 2013 - "Big Tex Wears Headphones Too" meetup

    I've been too busy to active here lately, so I'm sorry I haven't responded to this earlier.  I should be able to attend. I'm not sure what I'll feel up to hauling around with me, but I might be able to convince myself to bring the LG and HE-6/HD800 again.

    MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones

    MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones

    To those curious about Dan's amping, I know he's used a Mjolnir and PB2 for the balanced testing and has had a Bifrost/Lyr stack and a Conductor in the past.  I'm also fairly confident that he's not limited his testing to just one or two amps.   Tried them with the Taboo and Liquid Glass...

    Show us your Head-Fi station at it's current state. No old pictures please...

    Quote:   I've found that the Expedit doesn't always hold up to being fully packed with records over time, but a few metal brackets on the back to reinforce it make it very durable.   T-brackets   L-brackets   It's not completely necessary, but I'm paranoid.

    MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones

    I was also in Dan's beta group.  I had the opportunity to test it paired with a Decware Taboo, Cavalli Liquid Glass, and my speaker amp (a modified Dynaco ST-70).  Compared against the MD 3.2 protos, my HE-6, and my HD800's.  They really were wonderful.  I'll try to post more as I have the time...

    KOSS ESP-950 Thread

    Sooo....   I had been using the ESP-950 as my primary can for about a week, and then yesterday I got severe static in the left channel (to the point that it's unusable).  I was able to discharge a bit of it, but it's still there.

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    Quote:   That's a wonderful player.  I spent a while listening to it at RMAF last year in the Modwright room.  I have one of their preamps, and I've yet to hear anything that Dan Wright has made that I didn't thoroughly enjoy.  That's one of the best universal players I've heard to date.

    **MrSpeakers Mad Dog: Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    Quote:   Amperex 8416's were nice.  I've also liked the 6H30i's.  Just about any headphone is good with the clear top RCA 6SN7s.  I've just started breaking in a pair for Brimar CV4034's that are sounding very promising.  What about you?

    The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2

    That would most likely not get you out of the lease, but in Texas, the break-in would be grounds to terminate it (it worked in my case). You'll probably have to find someone more familiar with property in Louisiana to get a good answer though.

    **MrSpeakers Mad Dog: Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    Just keep in mind that the 1/4" TRS cable may not be compatible with all speaker amps.

    Battle Of The Flagships (58 Headphones Compared)

    Quote: I own them (and have owned each of the models as they've progressed).  Here's the appreciation thread.  Personally, they get more head time than my HD800 and HE-6 combined.  Living with a noisy dog, loud air conditioner and other background noises, it's much easier to just grab the...

    The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2

    Quote:   I had preordered one of the Lytros, but ended up returning it.  It's interesting and fun to try out, but it needs a very well lit environment.  It did horribly in low light situations and wasn't even all that good in broad daylight.  Still, it was fun to play around with focus...

    **MrSpeakers Mad Dog: Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    Quote:   I've recently acquired the UHA-6Sii, and it does pretty well, but I'd prefer a tiny bit more juice.  I don't know how that would translate over to the 4S.

    Quote:   That sucks man!  I hope you get everything back.  Did you have renter's insurance?  I don't even know if it covers things like that, but it would be much better in case he's able to unload anything quickly.

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

      I have both the Taboo mk2 and CSP2+, and neither does a good job of driving the HE-6.  The Mini Torii might work, and the Zen Torii mk3 would certainly do well (with an impedance adapter from the speaker taps), but neither of those is really a headphone amp.  I split my time with the HE-6...
