    AGD Master-9/HE-9 vs. Simaudio Moon 430HA

    Is there anyone out there who has heard both of these devices (or even all three)? I've heard the Moon and I was very impressed. It really bellowed out those deep notes like I love and sounded great with both my HD800S and LCD-3. It's probably a bit out of my price range, though. Master-9 or...

    Schiit Mjolnir 2 vs. Bryston BHA-1?

    Hi all, I currently own a Schiit Mjolnir 2 w/ LISST and three sets of tubes. My headphone line up is a pair of LCD-3s and HD-800s. I've never really been mesmerized by it and am looking to upgrade. I really, really loved the Ragnarok but I'm sort of holding off on that for a while until a new...

    Experiences with Bryston BHA-1 headamp?

    Currently using a Schiit Mjolnir 2 with solid state tubes and looking to upgrade. Any experience with Bryston BHA-1? what else should I consider in the 1300-1700 price range? I had a Ragnarok briefly that I had to return due some malfunction secondary features, but I enjoyed the sound...

    Audeze LCD-2 Fazored Like new

    I'm selling some sub-1 year old Audeze LCD-2s (fazored, wood, lambskin). Absolutely mint. Bought them new and loved them so much I ended up buying the LCD-3s. Babied them with official Audeze leather conditioner. $650 shipped. They need to go to a good home to someone who will love them like I...

    WTT: Want to trade mint LCD-2 for mint HD800 in Norcal/Nornev

    Hi all, I have a mint LCD-2 less than 1 year old and 1 owner (me). I love them and take great care of them. However, I love them so much I got LCD-3. Now thinking I'd like to swap them for something different. And what's more different than the good ol' HD800? Since I'm looking for straight up...

    Upgrade cable for Audeze LCDs?

    Hi all, I'm not looking to break the bank on an upgrade cable (already broke it on the LCDs), but I was wondering if anyone know a great value cable (approx 8-10ft, 4-pin XLR) for Audeze. I hear good things about Black Dragons, but didn't want to spend that much. Ideas?

    Non-ludicrously expensive upgrade cable for Audeze LCDs?

    I had the opportunity to test out an $800 cable with LCD2s and 3s. It was better and I liked it. However, I'm not willing to pay $800 for a cable. I hear the Silver Dragon is good but that's still like $500. Any great bang-for-buck cables?

    Alternatives to OPPO HA-1?

    Hi there, I'm considering buying an OPPO HA-1 DAC and integrated headphone amp because it meets all of my requirements like few devices do. 1) High quality DAC 2) High quality headphone stage 3) Two sets of analog inputs, at least one of which has Home Theater Bypass function 4) Analog output...

    How does Mjolnir 2 with LISST tubes compare to other solid state amps?

    Head-fi has several threats about how Schiit amps fitted with LISST tubes compare to rolling glass tubes in the same devices, but how does the Mjolnir 2 compare with other solid state only amps? I guess I sort of like the idea of tube rolling, but not if that means I can't also enjoy a very high...

    How good is the Mjolnir 2 for its price? What else should I consider?

    I've just got a new Gumby and up next is a new headphone amp pairing. The Mjolnir 2 is an obvious option since that Schiit matches. But how good of an amp is the Mjolnir really as compared to other amps in that price range? I don't absolutely neeeed it to match (though it would be nice). I have...

    Who has used the Peachtree Nova 300 as a headphone amp?

    I'm in the process of upgrading some stuff and I'm really, really tempted to go for the Nova 300 because it just seems to do a great job at so many things. But my alternative is to the route of separate components, including a Schiit Gungnir MB and Mjolnir 2 stack. I want both an excellent...

    Thoughts on Gumby?

    I'm thinking of upgrading my DAC to a Gumby. Right now I have a Schiit Jotunheim, which I will continue to use as an amplifier (at least initially) via balanced input. I'm leaning toward the gumby because of its beauty and plentiful inputs and outputs. In addition to running to my headphone amp...
