    If you pass by, please pick one up for me. I need to get some new bluetooth headphones for my wife. She keeps breaking hers (they get banged around in her bag since she never uses a case, wears them at the gym, etc).

    Maybe the V-Moda 80? I used to have the predecessors which were wired, but I thought they were quite good. https://www.amazon.ca/s?k=v-moda+80&crid=1G94DD2THLEAC&sprefix=v-moda+80%2Caps%2C106&ref=nb_sb_noss I have zero experience with this one, but it looks like they are trying to bank on the...

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    Speaker amps may also have more DC offset than headphone amps. A big driver that can handle tens or hundreds of watts doesn't care, but headphone drivers are far less tolerant.

    My dad worked at Navcanada years ago (back when it was called Transport Canada) back in the 90's. He wasn't an ATC, he ran the cafeteria, but he was there for over a decade and got to know a lot of the guys very well. He did note that there was quite a bit of turnover in his time and cited that...

    Wow @SennheiserMiser it's been a long time. Hope you've been keeping well! I think I'm the only person still active here who would remember you. I'm not a mac person... but couldn't an old iphone do most of what you're looking for? As for the Fostex purpleheart... paging @Viper2005, years ago...

    If anyone passes by, pick up two (or four) for me! Heck, you can always place some under equipment like feet for cooling.

    If you're worried about it being wobbly, just buy two and glue them together side by side.

    Hey guys, I gotta offload a bunch of gear to pay for the new house. I posted this up at the other site but will copy it here (links removed because headfi will flag them). Willing to make deals for locals.

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    An L-pad is just a couple resistors both in series and parallel with the load (either the speaker or the headphone). They are used to trim down the amount of voltage seen by the load and thus reduce volume. Just a resistor in series will work to reduce it (the mechanism is called a voltage...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    Ok so I found this image online... https://www.audioservicemanuals.com/s/Scott/Scott-299D/Scott-299D-Schematic-1.jpg So it appears that it is a tube amp w/transformer coupled output with different taps for 4/8/16 ohms speakers. Do you have the manual? Does it say anything about ensuring there...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    In general, if you have the proper adapter cable to go from binding post to balanced headphone jack, you should be fine as long as you are careful with the volume pot. There are typically two scenarios to be wary of: 1) too much gain/noise, in which case a series resistor on the outputs is...

    It's always good to have an ortho in the back pocket as it were. I'll admit two other orthos on the periphery of my radar have been the Modhouse Tungsten and the Rosson Audio. The former being another guy who has grown out of the T50rp modding scene, and the latter being one of the founders of...

    Yeeaaaaaah... it was kinda messy and he lost a ton of business from it. Like, seriously man, as a business owner sometimes you just have to shut your yap because you know that's gonna come back and hurt you in the long run. For different reasons, I can't bring myself to buy any Mr Speakers...

    I believe my first thoughts upon meeting @Beefy were "I wasn't expecting a guy with an accent" lol. My favourite pairing with the Piety was the JAR 660, and the DSHA-3FN with the ETA Mini-S. Unfortunately I don't think we had either combination out at the meet (both headphones were kinda...

    Awesome to meet everyone today! Best turnout we've had in a while, and great to meet a couple faces for the first time. Thanks to @rifi for hosting again. Nice to see @Beefy and @Kernel Kurtz for the first time. Of course also @ecwl @Rubin @zoobabwa @dscythe . Hope I didn't forget anyone. Some...

    @Velomane just told me he can't make it tomorrow unfortunately, but I will still bring his stax headphones to listen on the iESL. Is anybody else interested in knives? I have a few "damascus" blades that are new to my collection if anyone is interested.

    @ecwl yeah I've got a DSHA-3FN which was designed with Focals in mind, so the Utopia would be great, thanks!

    Moon Nēo 430HA Reference Headphone Amplifier

    C'mon man, you've been around long enough to know that pure power output is not an indicator of quality, and after a while we're all just playing around with varieties of sonic flavour.

    Moon Nēo 430HA Reference Headphone Amplifier

    In terms of power output, they are nearly the same (the 430HA technically has a little more power). I don't have the Susvara, but I have an original HE-6 and the 430HA did a fine job of powering it even though I tend to use a pure speaker power amp these days. Please note that voltage and...

    Moon Nēo 430HA Reference Headphone Amplifier

    I don't have the dac output specs, but just looking at what's published online for their headphone outputs, they are very similar... top chart is the 430HA, bottom is the Prelude, columns are power output at the rated impedance, and the calculated voltage output. As you can see, the 430HA puts...
