    Show us your vintage headphones!

    Ha, that gentleman is me.  Thanks for the compliment :) It took me about 10 minutes the first time I tried these on just to figure out how to wear them.  They are actually really comfortable because they don't touch the top of my ear at all.

    This is a unique 1981 vintage can by Pioneer.  They are worn under the chin and have a glasses like plastic arm that holds them over the ears.  They are for sale for the right price BTW.

    Thanks, just curious how the little Dot 1+ drives the HD600's.  I was looking at it for the 650's but was told the power might not be enough.  Still considering it however as I think it could be good intro to tubes.

    Matrix M-Stage ideal gain with HD650

    I just picked up a Matrix M-Stage for use primarily with some HD650's.  Any thoughts on the ideal 'gain' to set it at?  I can hear a difference from listening straight out of the Fiiio E18 DAC.  The sound is less congested and the veil lifts a little.  However I am getting some slightly boomy...

    Worth buying Marantz 2220 on craigslist?

    I'm sure this thread is pretty dead but just in case anyone is looking for an answer as to where to find LED replacements for Marantz models... do a search for them with your model number on eBay and you will find several options for LED and traditional fuse lamps.  Installation looks pretty...
