    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    Sapele is so lovely though. Reminds me of the mahogany bodies of Gibson guitars.

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    Currently I'm leaning on continuing reviewing on my private blog and YouTube but disclosing the ZMF affiliation whenever I tackle another full-sized headphone. I can't review ZMF anymore, however, as it just doesn't seem right to me. There's also another brand or two that I will avoid talking...

    Inspire IHA-1 tube headphone amp

    Have you tried 6F8Gs? I greatly prefer them overall for pre-amp tubes.

    Review by 'Aornic' on item 'Inspire by Dennis Had IHA-1 Dragon Version'

    Introduction The IHA-1 is the concoction of Dennis Had, formerly of Cary Audio, who has a reputation in the audio community for his tube power amps. After Drew Baird, CEO of Moon Audio, used an Audeze LCD-3 to showcase to Dennis just how far headphone technology had come, he decided to give a...

    I do believe so. I compared them here if it helps.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Aornic, you gotta mod these in order to bring out their true strength. Add a extra magnet on the back. Make sure to replace the hm5 hybrids, they really open up the head phone, improve resolution, and fixes the FR. Lastly you need 400 burn in hours minimum. I recommend 1500 hours. Usually 1...

    Inspire IHA-1 tube headphone amp

    I'm curious about the WE 274B but I'm very happy with my metal base GZ34 + 6F8G pairing in the meantime.

    Feliks Audio Elise Impressions Thread – a New Start (please read first post for summary)

    I'm looking forward to it. Got my hands on some RCA 7N7's today and find them quite impressive. Also I included my experience at the Feliks booth in my Can Jam impressions video.

    Feliks Audio Elise Impressions Thread – a New Start (please read first post for summary)

    Sure you can. I'm not too familiar with PSVANE tubes, but they told me that they were using the entry level ones for the Elise and the gold-pin ones for Euphoria.

    Feliks Audio tube amps

    Feliks had both the Utopia and Elear at their booth, as well Beyerdynamic T1. Don't have any more photos of their booth I don't think. The lighting at CanJam is really bad for cameras.

    Feliks Audio tube amps

    Sure. I will definitely cover it in my Elise review and I wrote some impressions just now above of the Euphoria and Eikon. I think it is a great pairing for its ability to let the Eikon be itself in tonality but also retain a sense of finer detail.

    Feliks Audio tube amps

    Had a nice time at CanJam hanging out with the guys at the Feliks booth. From my brief listening, I can tell that the Euphoria is a step up from the Elise in detail retrieval, staging and clarity. Despite this, I noticed some preferred the Elise for its warmer characteristic - so it really is a...

    That's actually my photo of the HD800 and ZMF Eikon. Atticus, in padauk wood, will look identical however.

    CanJam London 2017 Impressions Thread (July 15-16, 2017)

    A Schiit Mjolnir 2 with the Gungnir Multibit. As an owner of the DAC myself, I can highly recommend it to anyone at the show today for demo. It's at the Schiit Audio/MrSpeakers/Dekoni booth run by Mark over at Electromod. One of Dekoni's pads. A perforated one that reminds me of the pads on my...
