    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    I recently sold my Ovation, but I would usually stick to 100 and 300. On my Kenzie OG Rev 2 I stick to 300. I notice on lower output impedance it loses a bit of energy up top, and the bass, though tighter, loses some of that emphatic impact the higher impedance taps give it. Spent a good hour...

    DNA Stratus 2A3 amplifier - first impressions

    The wait is pretty brutal, as hard as i tried, i could not stop thinking about it as the months went by. hopefully he can get yours out earlier for you. it's worth the wait for sure. i've spent the last 4 hours straight trying all my headphones and test tracks, and loving every minute of it.

    DNA Stratus 2A3 amplifier - first impressions

    Blue in the house! Donald was awesome and delivered my amp in person today!!! Thankfully I’m local enough to facilitate that :) Super friendly and helpful guy. He answered all my questions and talked with me for some time. It’s nice to know the man behind the brand is as awesome as the product...

    DNA Stratus 2A3 amplifier - first impressions

    Got a note from Donald my Stratus is assembled and being tested :) man I’m excited! Hopefully the testing phase isn’t too long, I want my blue! For those with ZMFs how far on the volume dial do you go to get to your preferred volume? On my Kenzie and MZ2 I barely get to 8 o’clock before it’s...

    HifiMan HE6 V2 Adorama

    I've been thinking about picking up a vintage receiver, they're pretty cheap and I think it would be fun to try. Plus I can use it for a secondary 2ch system as well. What i'm finding with the HE6SE is the transient attack/leading edge is stronger than the Atrium, but the Atrium moves more air...

    HifiMan HE6 V2 Adorama

    I couldn't resist the $399 price tag and snagged a pair, which I'm listening to currently. Thankfully they're working wonderfully so far, no QC issues out of the box. My system is configured for high Z dynamics (ZMF, HD650, lots of tube amps with low power and high output impedance) but I do...

    New Beyerdynamic Pro X line: DT 700 Pro X and DT 900 Pro X

    I did, there was too much treble for my tastes. If you’re finding it a bit tame up top though give it a try it’s an easy and reversible mod.

    New Beyerdynamic Pro X line: DT 700 Pro X and DT 900 Pro X

    Writing notes as I listen. Chain: Tidal HiFi to Holo Audio Cyan PCM in NOS mode to Jotunheim 2. I don't have a lot of solid state options so the Jot will have to do. It's got a low output impedance so it shouldn't affect the headphone's output like my higher output impedance tube amps will (via...

    New Beyerdynamic Pro X line: DT 700 Pro X and DT 900 Pro X

    Give me a day or two and I’ll do a comparison. My beyer is with a friend but I’ll see him tomorrow and grab them. From memory the akg is thicker as well as warmer but it’s been awhile since I’ve given them a serious side by side comparison.

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    The Hagerman Tuba tube amp occasionally pops up used in the 5-600ish range and is a killer amp for ZMFs. I love the Atrium on it even more so than some of my more expensive amps. The synergy is excellent.

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    I can't speak on the Mojo 2/VC combo specifically, but I can comment on the Mojo 2 with the Atrium and Atticus. I don't like the pairing much at all honestly. Tonally, the Mojo sounds fine. But IMO the power supply is not adequate for these big ZMFs. I think when pushed hard with big dynamic...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    I have two Kenzies, an OG rev 2 and an Ovation rev 1. They are both amazing with the VC. The Kenzie in general is a slightly warm, euphonic sounding amp. It doesn't lack for technical ability, but it's real calling card is it's smooth, warm sound signature. I personally love the pairing with the...

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    Been a slow lazy day working from home, which was mostly spent going back and forth with my Atrium and Ori. The Atrium rocks, we all know that. But man the Ori is also so so good. Crazy how much Zach was able to get out of those Fostex drivers. This track really shows off both set's bass...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    I got an all silver cable from Artic and it's beautiful. That being said, sonically I don't think I hear much/any difference, but my ears are dog poop now after years of abuse and tinnitus, so that's not saying much haha. Below is the model I got (not my specific cable pictured though). I got it...

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    Correct, no mesh at all. I verified with Zach doing so would be ok, which he confirmed.

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    I didn't notice much difference in the bass and lower mids. I'd say upper mids to treble gained more presence, which is exactly what I was looking for. I found them a touch too dark with the mesh. Not Atticus dark, but darker than I was expecting/wanting. No mesh is pretty much on point.

    Great for high ohm sets like ZMF as well. Love the Atrium on it. Great amp for a great price.

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    Nice suggestion! I've been listening since you posted and it sounds great on the Atrium. The strings have a wonderful tactile feel/sound, like the performer is here in person. I like the recording, simple and dynamic. The reverb on the lower notes are wonderful. The beginning of the track Sigui...

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    That looks like an Arctic Cable. I recognize the big hexagon wood splitter, I have one myself. Really nice cable. The splitter is a bit big but looks really cool in person.

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    You won’t get an absolute answer to this as it’s 99% subjective. The Burson has more than enough power and is a fine amp in general so it should sound quite good in general with the Atrium. As for how good, that’s where the subjective opinions and preferences will come into play.

    What wood is that? Love the grain and spotting. I especially love the banding around the sloping section of the cups. Killer looking set you got, congrats!

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    For solid state duties I keep a Headamp Gilmore Lite MK2 around, and it's very good with the Atrium. I do prefer my tube gear, but I do appreciate how the Atrium sounds on it. The Atrium on it sounds tight and precise, with good transients and good tone/timbre. If you're looking for a solid...
