    FS: Raal SR1a headphones

    Less than 4 months old, original owner. Kept in case & packaging when not used, in immaculate condition. Comes with all original accessories. I really didn't want to sell these as these are special, they blew away my previous Abyss 1266 & Hifiman HE1000 by a long shot, but I have not had a...

    HD800s mainly for the sofa

    HD800 is one of the most comfortable headphones out there. Super light clamp. IFi XSD or a chord mojo will work fine for it, though it will scale incredibly better with bigger heavier amps.

    WTB: Adapter 4 pin XLR female to speaker taps...

    There are a few they sell them online https://lqicables.com/collections/adapters-interconnects/products/copy-of-balanced-xlr-4-pin-female-to-speaker-taps-banana-plugs-pins Though you might want to message them about the 13" reach. They could probably customize it if you ask.

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    I got the HD800 with stock pads to have more sub-bass rumble than Audeze LCD2, Fostex TH-X00 & a Hifiman HE1000. It won't happen on low to mid-tier equipment, but it's possible.

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    The HD800 can have more bass & a sound fuller than the Audeze cans with the right high end equipment. People just don't know how well they scale. It goes beyond just headphone stuff, but high power amplifiers & higher end sources. They'll still be a bright headphone, that can't be changed, but...

    Raal Ribbon Headphones - SRH1A

    Is the switch selected down where it says 'Ribbon Earfield Monitors' for the top & 'Ribbon Circum-Aural Headphones' for the bottom. It's hard to tell from that angle.

    Audio-GD DI-20

    I think the only difference is the connector, the actual signal shouldn't be changed. It's normal for BNC cables to be used as regular coax cables with adapters. The adapter itself if just the metal piece with no extra wires.

    What amp do you have to that you will pair with the headphones?

    The Reference 6SN7 Thread

    NOS tested pairs sell for half of that on eBay. If the tubes you get have any hum or noise, initiate a return of those tubes immediately.

    DENAFRIPS Terminator: the King of R2R dac

    The review from audiostream was the opposite opinion, but that was the level 2 not 3. "To reach this conclusion, I compared it to my beloved Holo Spring Level 2 ($1,800 USD). Compared to the Terminator, the Spring sounded vague, grayish, and slightly mushy. (In my system, the Spring prefers...

    Audio-GD DI-20

    Do you guys really think the Mutec Ref 10 is worth it? I mean it sells for $4,000. The Master 7 DAC & DI-20HE combined don't cost as much.

    Raal Ribbon Headphones - SRH1A

    How will you connect the Freya to the Jot-R? To the output connections & then have the Jot-R at max volume & then adjust the Freya volume from the lowest setting? Is that correct?

    Can you connect a tube amp to an A/V receiver?

    Iif it has the word "output" next to the RCA's on your receiver, then use can you a external amp with it. If your receiver only has "input" RCA, then you can't.

    Raal Ribbon Headphones - SRH1A

    Pretty nice, where did you get those adapters? A quick search online lead to a eBay seller from Hong Kong, but they were a little different from yours.

    CHORD ELECTRONICS DAVE

    My opinion on the SR Blue fuse mirrored bazelio test. https://www.whatsbestforum.com/threads/audiophile-fuses.453/page-31#post-511944 When I tried it, it gave a darker, warmer tone, didn't like it over the stock fuses.
