    Monoprice Monolith Liquid Platinum - By Alex Cavalli

    Thanks as always haha I did some mods to my mcth having been inspired by the LP CAP mod I have to say that there was definitive improvement in the midrange and overall body with increased resolution. The mod was replacing the coupling caps (weren't even wima afaik) with audio note .1 uf 630volt

    Monoprice Monolith Liquid Platinum - By Alex Cavalli

    Man the failure rates are whats keeping me from purchasing this amp. Also I wanted to know whether buying open box is a good idea, I heard that there is a chance that accessories might not be present, so if I do get one is there a chance that I might not receive the adapter or something like...

    Massdrop x Alex Cavalli Tube Hybrid Amp (CTH) - Dropping Monday

    Thanks for the quick reply, why do you think the hum issues are persistent, well I reckon maybe bad tubes, or high gain tubes.

    Massdrop x Alex Cavalli Tube Hybrid Amp (CTH) - Dropping Monday

    I would love to know if using the 6sn7 or 6cg8 results in hum or noise with Aeon or lower impeadance phones. Are there any repercussions using the 6sn7 tubes as some people mentioned that they have a higher heater current requirement.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    HD 6xx series of headphones are the type of that will make you love them more the more you listen to them, they don't have that wow factor that some headphones have but they just have something magical about them that keeps pulling you back.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    What dac are you using, you should try ABing them, amped and unamped. The HD6xx series scales greatly with gear.

    Massdrop x Alex Cavalli Tube Hybrid Amp (CTH) - Dropping Monday

    Depends try using them for a bit more I heard someone recommending burning these in for a 100 hours, also I think the Electro harmonix tube is what is giving it the bite in the treble, I swapped it out not long after I got it. But that shrillyness aside I didn't find the amp to be bright, what...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I actually really liked the same combo but the only downside is that the magni 3 has a forward soundstage and the HD650 can get a bit claustrophobic with the magni 3 other than that it has excellent clarity and good bass and to top it off the entire combo is very affordable and knocks on the...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    You guys should try out the KISS mod, makes this headphone more punchy and snappy sounding, the woolyness decreases greatly with the mod, while retaining the sweetness of the HD650. The highs are super smooth but have insane detail on the HD650, there is this magic in the 650s that makes me...

    HifiMAN HE-500 sound but more impact?

    I agree the 500 has terrible distorted bass with poor amplification, but with good amplification it improves greatly, also focus pads/ brainwavz hybrid pads give better texture to the bass IMO.

    HifiMAN HE-500 sound but more impact?

    You could also roll the pads. Also you might wanna try it on a different amp, I was using a schiit lyr and I also wanted more impact I thought the headphones were just lean but when I used my speaker amp it was a night and day difference, Try the emotiva Basx-100 try it in the direct drive mode...

    My first high impedance headphones and what i need to know...!

    I'd also like to point out the HD650 scales fantastically, if you spend a bit more on your amplification it might be rewarding, and I suggested an E12 because you did mention that you move around alot, that amp is portable.

    My first high impedance headphones and what i need to know...!

    There is a misconception between high impedance = hard to drive/inefficient that is actually untrue it has to do more with Sensitivity of headphones which are rated like xx db/mw, The hd650 is actually pretty efficient I had good results with a fiio e12 you can look into that amp if it fits your...

    Massdrop x Alex Cavalli Tube Hybrid Amp (CTH) - Dropping Monday

    I do think the stock tube is the problem but you need to get a NOS tube new tubes can be shrilly in the highs, the electro-harmonix while I found to sound very good did have some metallic highs, magni 3 also has a forward sounding upper frequency range but its still smooth sounding and a warm...
