    Excuse my ignorance, but why are HF-1s fetching so much cash lately?

    koss ksc 75 vs. 35?

    I bought a pair of 75's and modded them with a sennheiser cable from the 580/600's, it fixed all the evils of the 75's for a reasonable price...I'm yet to find a can for under $100 that compares...imo...

    Singlepower MPX3

    No, I tried them on an earlier MPX3 I had, but found I prefer the sound of the amp driven by 6SN7's. I'm actually shocked at the popularity of the Slam wasn't my cup of tea... But I appreciate your help in choosing a Singlepower...your guidance early-on was invaluable.

    Hi Folks, I recently received my has a Supra transformer, blackgates, p2p silver wire and the solen upgrade. I've been listening with the recommended KenRad input tube and the Sylvania outputs. I had the oportunity to hear this amp in different configurations and found this setup to...

    Which is better, AKG K501 or Grado SR-60 without an amp?

    The 501's are a LOT more power hungry then the 580's...

    k701 veil?

    I did the exact opposite...I removed the thin fabric from the earpads and left the foam donut...I found the donut was necessary for high end control but found the thin cover was getting in the way of the music...I find I get more detail...better imaging...a clearer picture...

    Recommend a Great Sounding 12AX7?

    To some degree that's some degree it's not. First of all you could go to audio asylum and probably find out the equipment he uses...he's a legend around those forums... I've tried dozens of 12AX7's in three diffent pieces of equipment...and for the most part...his observations are...

    Recable an AKG 701

    Thanks for all the input. I re-cabled my 701's this evening. The braided cat6 cryo is more coherent...a little more forward but has a bit more detail and is more transparent...a nice upgrade. Bass is a notch better. I'm going to run them for a while and I'll let you know...

    $1200 amp needed for a HD650/SilverD

    Amp wise...It depends on the sound you like...if you like a more refined, laid back, big soundstage...a singlepower mpx3...even the base model. And you like a slightly more forward, smaller sound stage with a quicker pace...a slam model will fill the need...I tried a mpx3 slam but I hear the ppx...
