    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    I have been using my HD600 for a few months out of a Lyr with stock tubes and all I can say is absolutely love it. They are laid back in tonality, yet their detail is astonishing. It's literally euphoric to listen to them. I'm addicted :)

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    Anyone know if I got a good deal on these? Seems like there are a few different types of 6DJ8 Bugle Boys out there... I'm a bit of a noob and this was an impulse buy, lol.

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    Does anyone know if this guy is a reputable seller? These are some possibly really good deals. Also, how do I tell if tubes are fake before buying, if at all possible?

    Mar. 10 - Message from Rick's family re: Best Wishes And Prayers For A Friend In A Fight: rickcr42

    My grandfather was just diagnosed with lung cancer as well. I know it's unrelated, but I know what Rick and his family are going through. I haven't visited these forums in a long time, but I always think about you guys when I put on my Denons. Now I will think and pray solely for Rick when I'm...

    Only me that finds the grado's extremely comfy ?

    I've got an SR 80 that came with the original leather headband. They're the only Grados I've ever tried, so I can't compare between leather and vinyl but I can imagine these are better.
