    MEZE AUDIO ELITE - The New Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone - official thread

    I have tried Susvara with the HA-3A and tracks that are bass-light sound fantastic. Strings are amazing. But modern music, electronic, and any music with deep sub bass gets undeniably wonky already. Power is too low for the Susvara and the physics ain’t physicking. GT is really really good...

    MEZE AUDIO ELITE - The New Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone - official thread

    I do, and it’s probably due to new toy syndrome but I’ve been spending more time with this set up than my Susvara rig the past few weeks.

    Just pick one to start your journey. Whether it’s a review from the forums or from the many youtube videos, there will be amps that people love and others don’t. Who’s to say which side you’ll be on but your ears alone? Just go for it and start enjoying it. You’re not gonna get a straight answer...

    Also a search of “burson gt” will be helpful. You can also go to those specific amp threads and do a search on “susvara”.

    Is he still at it?! I’ve blocked this person many weeks ago and I’m sad to see his toxicity is still spreading around. Use the block function, it’s amazing!

    Cayin HA-300MK2 (2022) TOTL Transformer coupled Direct Heated Triode Tube HeadAmp (Page 91)

    Hi friends. I am contemplating on the HA-300 mk2. However I’m presented with an option to purchase a demo HA-300 mk1 at more than a 32% discount off retail price. I understand the advantages of the mk2 over the mk1 for a larger population of cans, but may I ask for opinion on their difference...

    Cayin HA-3A, a Compact 6V6s Transformer-coupled Tube Amplifier

    When the crafty bug bites me, I’ll probably pick up a tube of amber stained glass paint and give my HA-3A VU meters a warm glow. Seems the easiest way to go about it.

    I love how u just proceeded on the offensive. Go for it and thrive, man. Someone spoke about hearing differences in components to be largely affected by bias. Someone added it could also be due to differences in amp tuning. I added that difference may also be due to differences in personal...

    You’ll also be happy to know that I got rid of the 1266TC which is quite an assault.

    I didn’t talk about myself though. But it’s true and some people find that difficult to accept, or may take offence 🤷

    And also some ears are more refined than others. Some people can be unbelievably tone deaf and cannot distinguish a G# from a C, or nylon vs brass strings, or not able to catch finer nuances.

    GUSTARD DAC-R26 Balanced Decoder R2R+1Bit Dual Native Decoding Music Bridge

    TBH my personal preference now is R2R. I sold my TT2 for enough money to get a Morpheus and R26, both good deals. I prefer the Morpheus over the TT2 in my primary station. My R26 does good work in my secondary system. I like R26 with tubes and Morpheus with solid state.

    GUSTARD DAC-R26 Balanced Decoder R2R+1Bit Dual Native Decoding Music Bridge

    https://audiowise-canada.myshopify.com/products/src-dx It’s a small usb to dual bnc converter. I used these for my TT2 but I am currently using it to convert USB into BNC for my other DAC. Should work for R26 too.

    MEZE AUDIO ELITE - The New Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone - official thread

    1266tc They’re technically more proficient but I can only listen to them for an hour semi-comfortably, and not during the wee hours when I do most of my listening, on a recliner. But I think music enjoyment is a sum of many parts, which to my preferences and listening habits the Elites are a...

    MEZE AUDIO ELITE - The New Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone - official thread

    I think it starts off with following the herd, and/or following feedback of reviewers that you thought have similar tastes. And then you begin to really hear and experience it for yourself and trust your ears more. And in the process, formulate your own opinion of “what the heck was this...

    Cayin HA-300MK2 (2022) TOTL Transformer coupled Direct Heated Triode Tube HeadAmp (Page 91)

    May I ask for those who use the amp bookshelf speaker near field desk listening, what speakers would be ideal? Will LS3/5A speakers or Rogers Studio 3, or some of the small Dali speakers be okay?
