    Hifiman Mini Shangri-la

    You'd be better off buying a better headband from Hifiman directly. https://store.hifiman.com/index.php/the-newly-enhanced-comfort-headband-he400i.html

    Oh boy that headband was the wrong choice.

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    That's very interesting! Yeah the general consensus was that the H1 was very current-favorable, and from my own humble experience it seemed to sound slightly better on a SS amp.

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    Wow someone needs a nap. I thought the video was very well edited. The most interesting tidbit is how HEDD Audio says they want to transition to being more of a highend headphone company in the near future. That's quite the transition, and it will be VERY interesting to see what a full line-up...

    I don't have room for a CRT but I do use a 4:3 LCD on a pivot arm which I use for messing with old computers (my other hobby).

    ZMF Auteur Thread

    Seems like there's zero demand for the Auteur OG. I had mine listed (limited zebrawood with rosegold and magnesium chasis) for $1050 and I had no takers. At that point I decided to keep them and honestly, they're a good compliment to my other headphones. A nice, smooth, mid-forward presentation...

    Wolverine 🗡️🗡️🗡️ Headphones

    It gives you the authentic feeling of having Wolverine's claws in your ears! Just kidding I've never heard them.

    Got my replacement pads in. Also got the new The Pro 2024 cable which you can see pictures of in this thread. It's interesting to see how the lambskin perf pads have evolved over the last four years. Newer ones are below the older ones.

    ZMF Headphone Cable Poll - What do you use?

    Got The Pro 2024 cable in today. Feels REALLY nice, soft, flexible, and light. It's a good looking match for my zebrawood Auteur OGs. I don't have any balanced gear currently but I got it terminated with 4.4mm for future proofing. They don't make an adapter from the same cable so I had to get a...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Folkvangr was a crazy 10 tube monstrosity, and quite a bit thicker than the 2" chassis height of the Mjolnir 3. If he has a design that fits in a Bifrost/Asgard chassis, but needs two transformers to work, stick it in the Mjolnir dimensions. Maybe he'll even have room for a stepped attenuator...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Solution: Make Valhalla 3 in the Mjolnir 3 footprint.

    Those who have purchased cables and pads from ZMF, how long is the turnaround? It's been a couple weeks so far for me.

    I think all it needs is a floor lamp in that corner (maybe scoot the shelves over a little) with a soft (40w equiv?) warm temp light for the ultimate evening relaxation vibes.

    I did some minor rearranging. Jotunheim A makes a lot more sense next to the stack. Also invested in some nicer power cables. All Chinese, so nothing crazy, but VERY good for the money. (ahem... excuse the dust) I won't comment much on if the cables did anything, so as to not stir up the...

    Review of Meier Audio Corda JAZZ with ƒƒ-technology upgrade

    I don't really see myself ever selling my Corda Classic. I've always loved its sound, and I've made it my own with various mods.

    Schiit Lyr+ : Impressions Thread

    If it helps set your mind at ease, the Lyr+ is the most versatile option among those you're considering, for reasons you can probably discern. On the technical side (detail, clarity, staging, etc) it cannot disappoint. It's among the best in its price. The only variable to concern yourself with...

    Schiit Lyr+ : Impressions Thread

    If I were interested in a Jot 2 I'd probably just buy one secondhand because they pop up pretty regularly for a pretty significant discount. I have not heard the Jot 2 but I have read comparisons between it and the SS mode of the Lyr+, saying they were comparable. Having said that, the SS mode...

    Looking for the best Schiit Amp and DAC to pair with Sennheiser HD800s. Jotunheim 2 with the ES DAC card? Lyr+ with Modius? Jotunheim 2 with Modius? Something else?

    Seconded on the multibit options. You will really want that to max out the soundstaging depth potential.
