    K.I.C.A.S. Caliente for D7000?

    I'm interested in the Caliente because I've read that it's a good tube alternative for the HD650. I also read in some review that it did pretty well with the Denon D5000. Has anyone tried the Caliente with the Denon D7000?

    Toshiba HD-XA2 CD quality?

    This HD-DVD player supposedly uses 12x Wolfson 8740 DAC for its analog output. Does anyone know if this player is considered to be a good CD source, and what traditional CD player would it be comparable to?

    How do you ship stuff to others?

    Just curious, do most of you just use the postal system, or go to a UPS Store or FedEx Kinko's, or have UPS/FedEX pick up from your door? In the past I've used Kinko's and UPS Store, but I think their rates are a little higher than going through UPS/FedEX directly.

    MicroStack, HD650, amp upgrade?

    How many of you are using the MicroStack (or just Micro amp w/DM) with HD650? My new HD650's have had only 48 hours of continuous burn-in, and so far, I like what I hear. Nice alternative to my lively DT-990's...definitely keeping them. Now I know what everyone means when they mention the...

    HD650 compared to DT990?

    I have the Beyer DT990 Pro's (250 ohm). Pretty happy with them right now, although I feel the only thing lacking is its midrange performance (happy with the bass and now the higher frequencies are smooth and detailed after couple week's burn-in). I was wondering, how does the Senn HD650...

    Recommendation at $250 level - Beyer/Senn?

    Been lurking around here for a while, finally decided to start investing. I just bought a Headroom Micro w/Desktop module, and will primarily be using an iPod line-out as the source (AAC some 128, mostly 256-384kbps). Might occasionally use a Pioneer Elite DVD player or other mid-fi CD player...
