    Vintage OG and Present Day TOTL Comparisons and Impressions Thread

    Funny you mention Grado. @all2ofme is a dear friend (I think you have corresponded with him) and when I was speaking with him last week he mentioned having sold off a number of headphones and keeping a tight set. He mentioned his Grado RS2X which does things others do not and that inspired me...

    Vintage OG and Present Day TOTL Comparisons and Impressions Thread

    Interesting conversation about the effect of amps on dynamic headphones. I recently canceled my order on an endgame tube amp (out of respect to the builder I will not mention which one) as the above conversation had a similar bearing on my decision. Like @number1sixerfan I am fully embedded...

    dCS Bartok

    This is strictly speculation. The dealer should not be making this claim at this point in time.

    dCS Bartok

    Congrats - you now have both bases covered! My Rossini APEX is staying in my Naim 2 channel system however my OG Linn slimline case Klimax DS/Katalyst is being upgraded to Organik (board on the way to me as we speak). The Linn will continue to feed my Kerry T2 amplifier in my Stax system...

    What is your take on a comparison between the 009, 009S, and 009BK?

    The Stax Thread III

    My 009S and X9000 on my T2 are absolutely endgame however I still cannot forget my demo of the 009/BHSE back in 2017 when I returned to Headfi after a 12 year absence. Would I be crazy looking for a 009 or should I leave well enough alone and let my 009S fill that niche? The X9000 will still...

    SONY NW-WM1Z M2 / WM1A M2

    I have been more or less following this thread since inception however, at 638 pages, it is easy to not pay detailed attention. I have owned a 1Z since release however I must admit it does not see frequent use - I only take it with me when going to my second home. I use my Utopia exclusively in...

    dCS Bartok

    Hardcore British 2 channel user for the past 25 years. I have had a Linn Klimax fronting my Naim 500 system since 2011 and it has been upgraded each time along the way ending with Katalyst 4 or 5 years ago. When the Bartok was introduced I decided to treat myself and I purchased one for use in...

    Bowers and Wilkins PX8 Wireless Discussion

    Extremely curious as well for detailed comparisons between the AirPods Max and PX8’s. Perhaps I am in the minority however I do not find the Max particularly comfortable. ANC is important to me as I will only be using these cans for airline flights.

    dCS Bartok

    dCS acknowledge the Bartok is a superior DAC. The internal headphone amp, while commendable for a first attempt, was slightly lacking. I found my Bartok/GSX Mini outperformed the Bartok HA. I was impressed enough with the Bartok - when compared to my Linn Klimax DS Katalyst - to try a...

    Stax SR-X9000

    Hey Richard @number1sixerfan Which NOS are you using for the input 6922's? Kerry supplied me with Jan-Philips 6922 and a dear 2 channel Naim/dCS friend loaned me a set of NOS Japanese Matsushita (branded Amperex and RCA) 6DJ8. My friend is paying me back (or cursing me out) for introducing...

    Stax SR-X9000

    Exactly If @hifixman wants to purchase new production EL34's then no problem - a dime a dozen NOS EL34's - quite a different proposition I recently found out there is a big difference between current production Chinese and NOS in my T2. Kerry has told me of his new preference for Chinese new...

    So here is a non detailed and less informative post Finishing up 2 months with my Kerry T2 after 4 years with a Birgir Carbon WOW! PS - changed new production PSVANES out for NOS Mullard XFS2 DOUBLE WOW PS - it's made by Kerry so it sure looks purty

    DNA Stellaris

    I’m a member on the dCS forum and read about the same problem. Stuff happens. Trust me it will be worth the wait. Are you using the Rossini strictly for headphones? Mine is in my two channel Naim system. A Linn Klimax DS fronts the headphones

    DNA Stellaris

    Good luck getting your Rossini back. Mine was upgraded a while ago - WOW - is all I can say. Now just waiting for my Stellaris to arrive - however I am having fun "slumming" it with my Kerry T2 Enjoy

    Sony Z1R....listening impressions only

    @davidmthekidd By any chance do you have a link to the stand the 1Z is on. Is it sturdy enough to plug headphones into the Z and not have it topple over? Thanks
