    Call Larry at Comart and ask for Astron SL11A for 9v. 1-800-777-2798 Three of us guys on AC are now using this and we are blown away at the improvement. Two of us are using the Sony HAP-Z1ES music server.

    Matrix Mini-i Pro Impressions?

    I am not a can man so I have not tried the headphone section. I am using my mini-pro with Job 225 amp and Zellaton speakers. I have no complaints. I love the built of this unit, and the overall sound.

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    I am using this TBI Millenia amp with a 12v battery, 25K reference speakers, and $5K Dac/Pre. With reference equipment, this amp is a stunner. It is one of the most holographic and transparent amp that I have owned in the last 40 years. I cannot say enough of this amp.

    April Music Eximus DP-1

    The moongel drum pads are the best I tried. A friend and I tried over a dozen different brands. You can but these at Sweetwater Sound or Ebay for $6.95 with free shipping. They even sounded better than Racing Diamond and Stillpoints.

    April Music Eximus DP-1

    The Eximus beats the Lyr in the headphone amp on LCD2's, you will find that out when you get yours. I have tried them both.   One quick update on the gel pads if anyone is curious. I sent a set to a friend of mine and he brought out the moongel drum damper pads to compare. He hears that the...

    I read today that at the CES show,Weiss has updated their 202 Dac to use the XMOS drivers reunning their USB port. That looks like the future in Dac technology.

    April Music Eximus DP-1

    When I say it beats those other Dacs, the Eximus has the most detail and soundstage while keeping the magic. I guess the new term today is organic, I am from the old school.   Since the headphone amp is so powerful and organic, it should work perfectly with the T1.

    What other comparisons do you guys need? There is nothing under $3K that will beat it, the only one that came fairly close was the $7757 Weiss Dac 202. But my buddie sold the weiss and replaced it with the Eximus. The $4400 Antelope Gold/Voltikus did not compare, nor did the $3500 Lampizator...

    http://store.virtueaudio.com/category-s/74.htm   Don't let the low price of this USB cable fool you. It is a giant killer for only $55. You do not have to pay hundreds to get a good cable. The item says out of stock, but they can make them if you want one. It has a huge soundstage while...

    I have tried Herbies, these gel pads are better. Someone needs to market them. They shouldn't cost over $20 retail for a set of 4.   Quote:

    You will be very surprised if you use these gel pads, the best I have ever tried regardless of price.   Quote: Another big improvement tonight was when I turned my integrated to full volume and just used  the DP1 as the preamp. This is a must trial if you use an integrated. The...

    One more tip if you are using the DP1 on your two channel system. Actually this works under any speakers and other electronics. Vibration absorbing gel pads can make a tremendous difference in the sound, moreso than spikes or cones. Anthony Gallo is now sending them with their speakers and I...

    I found the DP1 is sterile and dry sounding for about 24 hours. That short break-in period sure surprised me. It is sounding slightly better everyday.   Quote:

    Yes, DP1 sounds powerful with ortho phones. I saw somewhere the price on the S1 amp is $2495 and it matches the DP1 perfectly.

    One very nice thing about the Eximus, this is the first Dac that took only about 36 hours to break in. Every other Dac I have used takes 400+ hours.
