    If anyone can upload the dimensions, its not at all difficult to do a laser cut stainless steel / aluminium piece. I did that with my HE4XX anyway. :ksc75smile:

    Are you talking about the HE560 or the HE6SE here ? The HE6SE's are even more expensive than the Arya's !!

    If the Frequency Response curve is accurate, it should make for a fairly well tuned frequency crossovers. Mid-centric, no sharp peaks with a taper / roll-off after 5k ?

    If you're not taking your cable off frequently, I would think a simple piece of heat shrink would work well too. And you can colour code it left and right too if you desire.

    These came in over the last 2 weeks. The NX7's are pretty much OOTB. Its got fairly good separation and sub-bass. Round sounding sound stage. But the mids seem to be not so well damped. Sibilance seems to creep in as volume goes up from moderate listening levels. Will need some addition burn...

    Most open/wide/large soundstage headphone?

    The guys over at Raal would certainly have something to say with their SR1a though.

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    When I read that, it simply means that the cable has a relatively higher resistance value. The lower power "dynamics" signals were attentuated at low volume by the cable. But once it gets beyond a threshold, you can pick them out as it higher than the attenuated losses.

    This actually measures consistently compared to the TRN 8 core that came in black/silver.

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    I haven't bought any of the TRN cables after the 1st batch I bought. I was frankly puzzled too as to why the difference in resistance between the R+ / L+ pins and ground were so great. I found the NiceHCK 8-core ones were really good measuring after Hakuzen's measurements. I measured and...

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    "Fake" as in the cable strand is not connected to any of the connectors at the ends at all. If you have measured the resistance values of the TRN cables, which I did, Hakuzen did too. The odd thing about the 8-strand (mine was the black and silver one), was that the ground pin always had the...

    JDS Labs ATOM Amp

    As mentioned, depends on your playback source. I have a few DACs that I have played around with the Atom while using the HD800. I also occasionally connect my handphone a LG G6 Quad to the Atom with a RCA adaptor. They all sound adequately pleasing to my ears. I tried connecting my friend's...

    Takstar HF 580 Planar Headphones

    Would suggest the JDS Atom for a desktop or a NX4 DSD if you genuinely need more power. However, I would say give your DAP a chance first though I do not own either of those you have.

    Generally what I hear from mine too.:v: Its pretty neutral, with a very, very shallow V/U whatever one may call it. Very gently elevated bass and treble when listened a moderate to loud volumes.

    Introducing the Matrix M-Stage HPA-3U and HPA-3B, review to follow!

    The unmodified HPA-3B works on 18V rails, its the voltage regulators that are spec'd at 18V. Not 18V transformers. You are correct. As far as the Burson V6 goes, its not supposed to go above 16V.. Unless they revised the design, else its a slow fry plugged into the HPA-3B amp.
