    Wells Audio - Impressions & Questions

    I think @The Piper starter making this an option last year. Notice there's no power button on the front panel of mine. You can see the PSU at the bottom of the product page here: https://www.wellsaudio.com/milo Lowers the noise floor considerably.

    Wells Audio - Impressions & Questions

    I'm continually impressed with the Milo, and I know what you mean about getting an amp collection you didn't originally intend to have. :sweat_smile: Can I ask which upgrades you have? I found a big difference with the external PSU and the Goldpoint attenuator.

    Cayin HA-6A Class A KT88/EL34 Tube Headphone Amplifier

    No I still have it. I've been listening to more solid state recently but will probably fire it up soon. Sounds amazing with the Verites, and helps heat my room in the winter months :darthsmile:

    Sennheiser 2-pin to mini XLR male connectors - do they exist?

    Shout out to Fog City Audio for the crazy quick turnaround and excellent service. Adapters work perfectly with my existing cables 👍

    Violectric V222 and V202

    I don't feel the V222 is shouty at all. Listening to it now. Using the Qutest right now but I usually switch back & forth between it and a Pontus or Venus II.

    Violectric V222 and V202

    Just tested Oh Dear and the V222 shines with a blacker background. The V280 sounds so smooth and warm with details to match, but there is a touch more bloom compared to the V222 which you may not prefer. Great song by the way! I need to add this to my playlist. In Violectric we trust...

    Violectric V222 and V202

    It's interesting because if you look at @Ichos first post in this thread it goes over the background of the V222 series and its similarities to the V280/281, but there are definitely some differences. I'd say it's the least warm of the amps I'm testing (that's not a bad thing), but warmer than...

    Violectric V222 and V202

    Interesting discussion. Throughout my testing I've noted that the V222 is cleaner than the V280. The same applies when I was pitting my old V340 against the V280. Listening to the first 60 seconds of this classical track with a lone violin playing followed up by the rush of the full orchestra...

    Feedback by 'Relaxasaurus' on listing 'Sennheiser HD660S2'

    Bought a Senn 660S2 and it was in mint condition. S2 is a standup guy and was super accommodating to deal with. Asset to the community and would trade with again. AAA+++

    Violectric V222 and V202

    Super interested in your take. Curious if they make the mids more prominent at all.

    Wells Audio Milo - Impressions And Discussion Thread

    We have the same tastes. I can't imagine selling either my Milo or V280. They're both wonderfully warm but each offer something a little different that would make me regret selling either.

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    I mean you and @Ichos sold me (except for the DIY part 😅) https://mezeaudio.com/collections/accessories/products/angled-alcantara-ear-pads Not a bad price for a noticeable/welcome change to the sound profile, even if to add some variety in your listening. I may just wait to see if black Friday...

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    I was thinking of this exact comparison too. Retiring an iconic model is a gamble but the market will have its say. I was able to sneak a peek at the Moon Audio review as it went private mid-video, but it sounded like the Empy II is a welcome upgrade. Even though I really, really liked the...

    Violectric V222 and V202

    Haha my old coworker asked for them back as a joke so I took them out for a photo. Figured why not share it with Head-Fi 😁 Need to listen some more but going off memory the sound out of the V222 sounds warmer than my old V340, but may sound closer to it than the V280. Both old and new models...

    Violectric V222 and V202

    If it was like the V340 that I had then it is indeed a smooth potentiometer but the mechanism that rotates the physical knob has slight notches to match level markings on the faceplate. So it has the feel of a stepped attenuator but is actually a standard pot. Personally I would've preferred...

    Violectric HPA V281 - Vorsprung durch Balanced (September 2023 Update: Limited Reissue Edition up for preorder!)

    This is why I only buy from reputable scammers based in Newark, NJ. J/k sorry to hear ebay is giving you the runaround, I've definitely been there many years ago. But it's odd that an account with 5000 reviews is giving you grief!

    ZMF Caldera - New Planar Magnetic from ZMF!

    Hearing the Caldera at Canjam I felt it was nestled right in between the rich warmth of the Empyrean and the resolution and refinement of the Elite. An excellent mix of both with the ZMF house sound. I read earlier in this thread that Zach plans on dropping some new wood options for it this...

    Violectric HPA V281 - Vorsprung durch Balanced (September 2023 Update: Limited Reissue Edition up for preorder!)

    Someone tried to sell me one in PM years ago when the V281 was still in production. Probably more trouble than it's worth to go after them legally.
