    Speaker recommendations <$3000

    Look at aci saphire xls. I had the IIIs and they are beautiful sounding. Youll need a sub for full effect, but get a force or titan and your still under the 2500 mark. k.s.

    Another best amp for price thread (under $4000)

    I agree with mjg. Cary 300 sei is THE amp(along with r10s), but a senn 650 with your pick of aftermarket cable will be damn good too. More than enough ta hold ya over... Im still kicking myself for getting rid of those two... dear Lord what was I thinking.... k.s.

    Meier Prehead..................$625

    Yep, thats right, a Prehead for $625. Its 220v but Im using a stepup/down transformer with it and It sounds excellent. Ive decided to skimp on the amp for a bit and get a solid source. Something I havent done since I owned an Ikemi and scd-1. Will be up until friday as I wont be able to...

    marantz pcdp????

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I purchased a d-ne10 from etronics. Should be decent. Whats a good line out cable? Moon-audio stuff the best? Thier senn replacement cables seem to be top tier....

    marantz pcdp????

    hey thats why im posting! So, a dne10, dej2000 or dne900 would give about the same sound quality is what you are getting at? Once again, I dont know too much about these. I figure MAYBE that the marantz one would be the one to beat(there is a slightly cheaper one for 350, and I think the more...

    HR-2 & XP-7 Op Amp Rolling Kit

    I like the 1028 but its best combined with another, wider freq ranged(sounding at least) op amp to balance it out. It can be a little rolled off at the extremes if used by itself(not a problem with my cdp, but with the hr-2 a problem). I too was disapointed with the bb627. It was muffled...

    Should I get my C555ES modify or by a used Sony SCD-777ES/XA777ES??

    To be honest I would have bought a used xa777es or scd-777es. Why you ask? Well you get about the same sound quality with excellent build quality, and an awesome upgrade path if you decide to go with that in the future. But you might not really need to upgrade, but need-want....well we know...

    Has anyone heard the new HeadRoom Electronic Modules?

    I heard this module very briefly,(moh-r) but I can tell you the unit sounded excellent. Unfortunately I can not compare to older models. clean, tight, fast, sweet, impactful, and full. Compared to an emmeline hr-2 that I owned, it beats it in all categories, even midrange detail and...

    CD3000 gone woody... pics

    Id be interested in the r10 mod as well. Let us know of the cost and can you do the cable swap with existing aftermarket cables?(i.e. a moon audio or mobius or the like). k.s.

    I would like to try the ps-1s with a REAL pad, as I felt the senn pads made my msp's sound wonderful, maybe even better than the r10s. ERRRRR...

    Edwood's Sony R10 Review

    I understand the r10s being hard to wear in the summer. Id still listen even when I wore shorts and t-shirt(and it was still too hot) with the hot ass cary raising the room temp a few degrees because it was so nice. They will grow on you, but to be honest, I knew right off those phones...
