    Verum Audio - Exciting high performance DIY planar

    Hello Garuspic: Have you managed to reduce earlier H2 distorsions peaks in the mid?

    OK Wes S. To my mind it's a shame they didn't give them a bit more light. Would be very easy technically... In the other hand I understand they want to keep what makes the NH a very special bird.

    Hello all, Did someone measure the NH carbon version? Wondering if they modified its fr response vs the old wood version. Thanks.

    Thanks for your inputs guys. I will work on the tutorial. To wait, here are some charts of the NH stock version: - comparison with my Kennerton Odin (green): overlays for 10 different positions of pad: Resulting power response: CSD: Busrt decay: harmonic distorsions at 100dB...

    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Hello to all nighthawk owners. I purchased a used NH some weeks ago. Why? Because it's the least we can say a controversial can. I love unconventional things. I wanted to hear this can and make my own opinion about it. And I like dying/moding, usualy speakers but also some cans. I listened to...

    Reply to review by 'agnostic1er' on item 'Kennerton Odin'

    Thanks for this review Thatonenoob. I own an Odin since one month now replacing a HD800 Smodalike. I generally agree with your feelings. My fr response measurements are a bit worse than yours, however distorsions are very nice with even spectrum on the whoole bandwidth (H2>H3>H4 and so on). Vs...

    Kennerton ODIN, MAGISTER, VALI, Magni, Thridi, Thekk, and Thror Discussion

    Thanks! However I regard Sorrodje to be the one and only inventor of the SDR. My latest and definitive mod was clearly closer to the Senn's S mod because I did fill the hole only with air, haha: in the inner hole: 2 layers of thin fabric to the outside grid and a perforated disc of creatology...

    Eric,   Your translation of my post on HCFR is real crap! I wonder what headfiers will think about me

    I own JAN Sylvanias 6SN7 WGTA and the Melz are a bit more dynamical and more powerful in the sub-bass range, so I prefer the later with my setup.

    Umhhh... You are good to push Felik's fans into tube and adapter's rolling LOL Is this item the right one to buy?: http://www.ebay.fr/itm/1pc-Gold-plated-ECC31-6N7G-TO-6SN7-CV181-B65-ECC33-ECC32-tube-converter-adapter-/191259510368?hash=item2c87f48660:g:3-UAAOSwMmBVvXRv

    What's the main sonic difference between ECC31 and good 6N8S like my Melz? (if you never heard Melz ones, I would say they are nicely dynamical and detailed, with an extended fr range, both on trebles and sub-bass)

    Feliks-Audio ELISE...New thread.

    Hi guys,   My stock Svetlanas have a more extended frequency range than my 6080 Sylvanias but have a little bit too much upper-treble level for my taste and setup; thus I'm eventually searching for power tubes (so 6AS7G or specified manufacturer alternatives) having the most powerful sub-bass...

    Hi guys,   I just edited the end of my review's post with some feelings about: - Sylvanias 6080 power tubes - Foton drivers - Melz drivers http://www.head-fi.org/products/feliks-audio-elise/reviews/13718

    Feliks-Audio ELISE...(previously 6SN7 + 6AS7G/6080 prototype)

    Yes Shaffer, these Foton render a very nice mid range, with huge contour of notes/performers ending with super natural/true tones; I don't hear little thickness in the lower-mid with the HD800 because this can surely lacks a bit of spl in this range. Melz are on the way, I am very curious how...

    Hi guys,   A few impressions about my new tubes: First the 6080 Sylvanias power tubes: frankly, using the same drivers, I could'nt hear any differences between them and the stock Svetlana 6AS7G (6N13S); perhaps a bit of extended treble range from the Svetlana but not sure at all...   Now...
