    Recommendations on Fluke DMM?

    As above.  If I missed some recent thread on this - sorry.  Looking for recommendations on specific models.  I intend to build some headphone designs as well as some Pass power amp designs, in case that makes a difference.     So far I've been eyeing the Fluke 179 and 87-V.

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    Quote:   fejnomit, yes I too would love it if you bought my amp.   Quote:   Are you going for the child/aging parent analogy here?  Or the other use of the "caring for/taking care of daddy" phrase?  It's a little disturbing as vague as you left it.

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    Seems like a great time to mention this since Cante Ista just posted that F3/HE-6 write up.  I'm selling my F3.  Flawless, $1.4K pp gifted and shipped in the CONUS.  Let me know if any of you guys are interested.

    It's actually really hard to get a pulse on any of this gear in large NYC meets.  Think over a hundred people in one large room, and open headphones?  Come for the fun.  The fun of heavy breathing headphone hoarders talking about something they only get to talk about twice a year.   -- Hey...

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    I liked it fine (it was a Stratos Plus).  I like the F3 even better.  It's got a lower noise floor.  The "images" are more precise.  Better dynamics.  Lower bass extension.

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    Quote:   Maybe if I still had an HE-6 I might!   Quote:   Personally I enjoyed the treble on the HE-6 too.  It's just that the response across the range could have been a bit smoother.  That trough in the midrange accentuates the transition to the treble, and makes it seems...

    Review: Resonessence Labs Invicta - new high end DAC/amp/playback system

    On the subject of Invicta reviews and impressions, when people try to make a play on words with the word Invicta, it ends up miserably sad.     I've read this once or twice.

    That is awesome Armaegis.  Kudos for doing something about the edge instead of living with it.   Wish I could hear this.

    Review: Resonessence Labs Invicta - new high end DAC/amp/playback system

    There's the word I was looking for.  Interestingly Dictionary.com gives 'formative material, stuff' as it's 5th definition of the word metal.  I guess enough people have made that mistake for that to be on there, or maybe that means it's not a mistake at all.

    Review: Resonessence Labs Invicta - new high end DAC/amp/playback system

    P86 already knows this (w/ the Linkwitz Orion experience) but, the Invicta really starts to show it's metal on a capable speaker rig.

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

    Putting all the technical stuff aside, that Mac Mini looks pretty cool on top of those, whatever they are.  Thumbs up.

    Unfortunately good sound engineers can't be bought/sold, I think there's some kind of technicality that applies.

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    ^ nice   Quote:   This one guy was really happy with a J2 + HE6.  I had a F3 clone for a long time with HE-6 + HD800 + LCD-2 + K!K.   They all worked well on it ('cept the K1K, needed more juice).

    Oh, anything that catches my fancy.  Maybe a Krell KSA-5 on the cheap.     But kidding aside, if anyone has an interesting looking diffuser or two I might be interested.

    Review: Resonessence Labs Invicta - new high end DAC/amp/playback system

    I think I've touched my Invicta all of 5 times.  I usually go with the remote.  Protective display tape is still on.       Hmmmm...come to think of it, I'm a little OCD with it.

    Sennheiser HD800 Appreciation Thread

    Surely.  The best things in life aren't free (nor cheap).  On that note, I know of the perfect cable for the HD800s.  Just ask me to find out which one it is (there's a nominal fee of $40).
