    Elekit TU-8200DX

    I recently built this after buying a pair of open baffle crossover-less high efficiency speakers as an experiment. This is probably the best sounding TU-8200 on the planet. Call it a DX-cubed. With the exception of the one original 180uF snap in Nichicon VY, EVERY electrolytic is either an Audio...

    Sennheiser HD 600

    Original owner, purchased brand new in box on 4-15-2015, perfect condition. The only reason I'm selling is that I decided to keep a pair of much more expensive headphones I just tried out. The pads are perfect, I've never bent the headphones in any way to expand or contract the clamping force...

    HD600 vs. HD558 ???

    I have a pair of HD558 on demo and I'm very impressed. The graphs at Headroom show that the HD558 and HD600 have a basically identical frequency response curve, with the HD600 being lower distortion.   Question: with a good home desktop headphone amplifier, is the HD600 more natural, smooth...

    Sennheiser HD600

    Original owner, perfect condition, purchased brand new in box in March, 2011. I got away from headphones over a year ago and these have been boxed up ever since. The street price for these is $400 at Headroom, Amazon, etc. so my asking price is very fair.   I also posted this for sale at...

    Channel Island Audio VHP-2 and VAC-1

    I purchased these both brand new directly from Channel Island Audio in April of 2011. They are in mint condition, never abused. They drove everything from Sennheiser HD600 (300 ohms) to Grado RS2i (32 ohms) -- perfectly. I chose this amplifier over several others by direct comparisons (e.g...

    Schitt Asgard

    This amplifier is approximately one year old. I'm the original owner. It's in mint condition. Its transformer doesn't hum, either (the earliest Asgard's produced had transformers that hummed a bit). I really like this amplifier and it synergized well with all of the headphones I own or tried...

    Grado RS2i versus SR225i ???

    IHas anyone compared these? How do they sound differently and is the RS2i worth the $$$ over the SR225i?   And which is has brighter treble? Headroom told me the RS2i is brighter in the treble but their frequency response graphs don't support this (I think their graphs are for the older...

    Question about Meier Corda Swing

    I'm interested in buying a Meier Corda Swing. The problem is a lack of information and feedback on this amplifier. Can anyone offer an opinion or comparison of this amplifier versus *whatever* (especially with HD600 or HD650).    I'm currently driving HD650 and HD600 with a Schiit Asgard...

    Elekit TU-882AS

    Original owner, only about 2 months old. This is the semi-assembled version, meaning the circuit boards were pre-assembled. So no worries that I ham-fisted the soldering.
