    FS: Almarro A318b amp

    I don't have a pic of the inside, but in the past I've opened it and confirmed it's unmodded. It's all point to point wired. I can do $100 for the caps if you buy the amp. They'd be $140 + shipping from Sonic Craft.

    SOLD: Focal Elear

    Also, Focal Clear pads fit on the Elear and make it an even better headphone. All in all, this is a great way to achieve great sound on a reasonable budget. (Clear pads need to be bought separately)

        No I can't say I've heard every cable in existence...  Cardas hasn't been a favorite of mine in the past, but it has been a while since I've had any around.  Also, I find the Cardas connectors and sundries inferior to Furutech.  Believe it or not, cryo treatment does seem to have a...

    I wouldn't say I prefer a warm signature. I prefer neutral to slightly sweet. Slightly sweet in the "emotional engagement" sense. But my T3 is dead nuts neutral to slightly sweet depending on tube, and that's how I built it - with metal foils and Rike caps. And the Stellaris does not sound like...

    Neurochrome HP-1: Ultra-High End Headphone Amp

    I thought I'd start a thread dedicated to the new headphone amp design by Tom Christiansen (Neurochrome).  This can be ordered pre-built, or as a partial-DIY project where Neurochrome supplies the PCB, chassis, and BOM list.  I'd caught wind of this amp a while back, and preordered the PCB from...

      The HD800 is bright and lean.  I prefer the HD650 with a ZDS given a neutral 6SL7 tube pairing.  The RCA red base would probably be a good choice for my preferences.  The HD800 wins in soundstage and detail resolution, but I simply do not like its tonality and that's a killer for me...

      The ZDS.  But that's not to say I don't like the T3.  I like it a lot.  It's an excellent amp that does so much right and has such a high bang for the buck.  The ZDS is just preferable in certain ways to me.   And, +1 to sticking with dynamic headphones here.

    Not all of us were able to be hovering over the thread and ready to pounce within 10 minutes of the form going up on the web, but did respond nevertheless and are just as interested and deserving of upgrade...  maybe that's what he meant by "fair".     Let's be patient and let the folks at Mr...

    It seems to me that you can't be both "transparent" and "on the warm side of neutral". Neutrality (in frequency response) must necessarily be a component of transparency.

    Official 2016 SF Head-Fi Meet Impressions Thread - July 16, 2016

    I wouldn't say that. A lot of folks perform modifications to the HD800 in order to find them tolerable, and even then would likely admit they have a lean overall sound signature. With amps that can impart a full bodied lower midrange and detailed bass, I have found modded HD650 preferable to...

    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    Dumb down are your words, not mine. And tubes certainly are not a requirement if you like the sound without them, but some folks certainly do not. Since the poster I was addressing in this thread has an opinion similar to mine when I hear Yggy in certain chains, amplifier pairing came to mind. I...

    Correct, which is why this isn't recognizable as a ZDS. So if it's got some ZDS pieces and parts, then it most likely has the higher impedance output only, best matched for Senn.

    What did they use for output impedance on this one since there is no selector switch? Or is there a switch hidden from view on this chassis?
