    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    This is one album the HekV2 never did well, it sounded thin, the dynamics lacked, so soon after I got the HekSE this is one of the first album I listened to, needless to say SE was amazing.

    This is great to hear, on a side note how is the pairing of L0rdGwyn Aegis with Susvara, can it go upto the level of something like Feliks Envy or high end 300b amps from Ampsandsound synergy and power wise with Susvara.

    Had any chance to pair the DS version with Vio V550.

    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    Hifiman Serenade can be a good mid-fi option too, I think it is available as open box and there is an offer going on for open box items in the Hifiman web store, you can try it and return it if you don't like it, DAPs don't have much experience but heard good things about A&K SP3000 and Hiby RS8...

    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    R2R DAC + Class A or Tube amp if you would like a slight warm leaning tonality this matches well with HE1000 series, Mojo 2 is very good but can get sharp at times, cheapest I can think of is the Cayin RU7 which is a resistor dongle DAC with DSD upsampling, it should theoritically work well with...

    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    I kept the A90D / D90LE in their boxes soon after I got my Spring 3 / V550 stack (mostly due to space issue), never opened ever since and properly compare them, I think I'll soon sell these after I get a chance, busy life 🤷‍♂️, but my first impression of the Spring 3 after listening to D90LE for...

    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    Particularly the R2R part, I read somewhere that Dr Bian from Hifiman like R2R DACs so it is likely they tune their headphones using R2R DACs which also may explain the slight sizzle up top on all Hifiman HPs, if you see their DAC offering they are also all R2R topology.

    Hifiman HE1000 Planar Dynamic Headphone

    La La Land soundtrack is a treat with the SE.

    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    I bought this one but haven't travelled with it yet, there is also a foam cutout version, but Geekria confirmed it doesn't work with HE1000 series even though the product title says it does. https://www.amazon.com/Large-Sized-Headphones-Replacement-Protective-Compatible/dp/B082NJWZ4Z/

    HQPlayer Impressions and Settings Rolling Thread

    Guess we are talking apples and oranges here, I am taking about playing **HQPlayer processed files with filters and upsampling**, I am **not talking about just playing remote audio files** via LAN which I know many apps can play. Anyways If you don't understand the gist of my question I...

    HQPlayer Impressions and Settings Rolling Thread

    Ok, so this is why I said a missed opportunity, I don't have access to Tidal / Qubuz in my country only Apple music for hi-res lossless playback, so if HQPlayer provided a IOS thin-client app which can connect to my PC via wifi, I could have enjoyed the local files in my PC with high quality...

    HQPlayer Impressions and Settings Rolling Thread

    Ok, first let me summarize my understanding of NAA functionality, I am not talking about remote control (though the client may support that as well). Server PC: HQPlayer processes audio here, no DAC attached to this PC. Client PC (or tablet): this has DAC attached to it via USB, it connects to...

    HQPlayer Impressions and Settings Rolling Thread

    Nope DAC is in the same rack, but my PC is bit further away and I dont want to run a cable from there, I dont have a dedicated PC for HQPlayer yet, I think a IOS / Android app was such a obvious need for HQPlayer and its capabilities, looks like a missed opportunity by Signalyst.

    Hifiman HE1000 Planar Dynamic Headphone

    For me Focal Radiance for rumbly bass :-), I got it cheap for $530 (new) so it was even better, for higher end hearing good things about Dan Clark E3 and Atrium Closed.

    HQPlayer Impressions and Settings Rolling Thread

    Is it possible to run HQPlayer in a Windows / Linux machine and send the processed audio over LAN to my IPAD connected to my DAC for playback, from Signalyst website below this should be possible, but I dont see any IOS client app for this. Below is from https://www.signalyst.com/consumer.html...

    Hifiman HE1000 Planar Dynamic Headphone

    I know still high price, but with periodic price revision + exchange offer the blow is much less, one thing I must say though many other manufacturer don't have such exchange offers like Hifiman, I upgraded my V2 to SE (new) for $925 incl shipping, correct me if I am wrong.

    Hifiman HE1000 Planar Dynamic Headphone

    I'll wait another 2 years for it to drop back to $1999 :slight_smile:, hopefully Hifiman will still provide generous exhange offers then.

    Cayin RU7: 1-Bit Resistor Network Dongle DAC /Amp

    As per this comment the latest version have ASIO drivers, so you should be able to use foobar2000 and select ASIO output, this will give you bit perfect audio, as far as I know playing via standard windows mixer it is not bit perfect...

    Hifiman HE1000 Planar Dynamic Headphone

    I haven't heard the HE1000 Stealth, but personally for me HE1000SE is a big upgrade from V2, althought I liked the V2 but 2 major issues I had was sibilance in vocals in some recordings and a weird emptiness in the overall frequencies maybe not in the graph but my perception of the sound, and to...

    Hifiman HE1000 Planar Dynamic Headphone

    HE1000 Stealth is not V1 or V2. HE1000 SE also has stealth magents but is a different headphone than the above 3. Both V1 and V2 are discontinued mostly available pre owned / refurb / open box very rarely brand new. Currently in production HE1000 SE and HE1000 Stealth.

    Violectric HPA V550 - Blue's Brother and the successor to the V281

    Just to correct Phonitor X does have pre amplifier and balanced headphone out, but I heard its very headphone picky. https://spl.audio/en/spl-produkt/phonitor-x/

    Violectric HPA V550 - Blue's Brother and the successor to the V281

    I was just wishing Violectric should, it doesn't have the noise issue and will be an upgrade over the regular pot.

    Violectric HPA V550 - Blue's Brother and the successor to the V281

    I think Violectric should also provide the new Alps RK50 potentiometer used by Woo WA23 as an option for the pro models, it also cost $500 same as the reed relay.
