    2011 Atlanta Meet on March 19

    Does anyone have the HD800 or T1?  I'm debating between them, and would love to hear them sometime this weekend.  I have a Blue Hawaii on the way, that should arrive on Thursday (!)

    eXStatA Build Thread II

    Hey all.  I thought I had more time for this project, but it looks like my work life is going to attack me for a few months.  If anyone has an eXStatA (or 717 or KGSS) they are not using and wishes to sell, please drop me a PM.

    Has JMoney or anyone else made leather pads for the Sennheiser Baby Orpheus HE-60?

    eXStatA Build Thread II

    Thanks everyone!   Do any changes need to made to accommodate the Cooper 78-S6S jack?  If so, can I get a hand with it?  I've never done anything with FPE, and given how expensive the panels are I don't want to mess up.

    eXStatA Build Thread II

    Hi all!   My first Exstata build.  Does anyone have any Stax connectors left?  Also, in the panel templates from Sachu, I noticed they are 106mm x 310mm.  Which enclosure does this correspond to?  I have a parmetals 20-series case that is 12" x 12" x 5".  It would seem that Sachu's FPE...

    Wanna buy the Stax sr009, should I?

    Yes.  Purchase them.  I would put money on them becoming the best electrostatic headphones at any cost.  I strongly suspect they will wreck the Omega II and HE90.  I e-mailed Stax about the 007 vs HE90 a few years ago.  Stax replied stating (and I'm paraphrasing) that they wish for the...

    REVIEW Summary/Index: 22 Solid State Home Headphone Amps

    Reading the b22 review, I find it pretty hilarious that you'd prefer any singlepower over it.  That's like prefering the es-1 (srx!) over the t2.  The beta22 is measurably one of, if not the most perfect non-electrostatic headphone amp.  Unless of course, you're looking for color...  I mean...

    A great Solid State amp?

    I believe the beta22 is pretty much king of the solid state amplifiers.  I have not heard anything better.

    Rudistor realeased a new flagship amp

    Having given this some thought, I have a bit of a reflection on it.  While I am not familiar with RudiStor's products, I am very much familiar with the beta22 having built a few of them.  Thing is, a beta22 (and the beta24 for that matter) are such excellent amps that 'real' manufacturers...

    Rudistor realeased a new flagship amp

    I'm not weighing in on the arguments either, but great job on the casing baka.  It looks really good.

    Why am I having so much trouble typing posts?

    I have the same issue with Firefox 4.0 on both Mac and PC.  I am not able to get a blinking cursor unless I double click the source button.  When I press enter, nothing seems to happen and I simply type one massive line.  However, when I post the line breaks are all appended to the bottom.

    Headamp KGSS BOM?

    My issue with panel design is the sizing of all perforations.  For example, exactly which IEC input should be used?  What about switches?  etc.. etc..  I realize it's easy for most, but for a newbie in panel design it's a bit daunting.

    Headamp KGSS BOM?

    Also- does anyone have a recommendation on an enclosure?  Better still, an enclosure and a front and back panel design?  :)

    Headamp KGSS BOM?

    I am looking to build my first KGSS using Headamp's PCBs. I think that a great deal of people have done that.  Is there a reasonably up to date BOM that someone has used?
