    HiFiMan Shangri-La Jr (New $8000 Electrostat)

    Ok more tube rolling Psavane mark 2 Incredible sounding, but it took around 100 hours to explode to glory. Also I needed to adjust bias... I wonder if any user has ever done it? I never did it before and was a bit intimidating but cool at the end Sound never have been better. GLORIOUS

    HiFiMan Shangri-La Jr (New $8000 Electrostat)

    HIFIMAN HE-R10 Closed-Back Headphones Discussion & Impressions

    I found RU7, that i still own, to be far superior (from memory) to RU6 that I did own a while ago. I also think that combines superbly with the R10D Listening Napoleon soundtrack right now!

    HIFIMAN HE-R10 Closed-Back Headphones Discussion & Impressions

    I have been checking the bluemini wired to the phone (dac mode wired) and it sounds sooo good... I just get a bit low volume even with the phone maxed and if i let tidal (i use tidal) take control, it crashes and the bluemini turns off. But if i dont "ok" it works and sound is very pleasant

    Got them but cannot listen as i have one ear blocked at the moment. I didnt know it has 2 x 3.5 mm connectors on the cups, great surprise, as i can use cables that i have (I though it was one side balanced only). One of them still balanced to use with the bluetooth thingy, which also came and I...
