    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    I'm sure this has been touched on in the 550 pages but looking for impressions on cables. I ran a Toxic cable when I had my LCD's but haven't looked much into changing up the cable on my 900's. Not looking to increase low or high end just improve overall sound quality "if possible". The other...

    I ran the Lyr when I first got my 900s. Not horrible but definitely not the ideal amp for the 900s. I sold the Lyr and went with the Soloist after a ton of reading. Its the perfect complement for the 900s would highly recommend. Stay away from tube amps, listened to the Woo Wa22 and it sounded...

    I'm always hesitant when it comes to EQ for example I've played with various EQ setting on the T1's and always end up going back to neutral. The 900s on the other hand are always ran with EQ and I love it. I don't tweak the EQ to favor one section of the sound curve more I simply EQ everything...

    I had the LCD2.2s and found the mids veiled while in all honestly felt the entire sound signature veiled to some degree. Everyone always quotes the 900s as lacking in the midrange but that has never been my impression, everyone hears things differently I guess.

    Listened to my 900s thru the Woo Audio Wa2 amp this weekend and it was the worst I had ever heard the 900s sound. I would highly recommend staying away from that amp if you plan to pair it with the 900s

    Schiit Lyr w/ Various Tubes

    Up for sale is my Schiit Lyr amp. I purchased this from another Head-Fi member around one year ago and it's worked great. Recently upgraded to a new amp and have no use for the Lyr.    Overall the amp is in very good shape.  Two items to call out: Volume knob - The allen bolt that holds the...

    I had the same mindset as you initially. I reached out to Drew at Moon Audio and he said the Soloist produces a much more refined sound compared to the SL and that Stepped attenuators are always a better sound. As the signal only travels through 1 resistor. Verse with wiper control the signal is...

    Any issues with the step volume knob? What gain setting do u run the 900s thru?

    Anyone have any comparisons running the Burson Soloist versus the Soloist SL on the TH900s? I'm using the Lyr currently and feel like it's a little too hot for these cans. I've heard great things about the Soloist w/ these cans but with their low impedance it seems on paper like the SL may be...

    Tungsram 6922

    Up for sale are a set of Tungsram 6922 tubes. These retail for $60 each, I'll sell the pair for $60. I have way too many tubes so figured I would get rid of some. Very good detail can lift the veil off a tough set of cans. Zero background noise. Ordered from Upscale Audio see the link below for...

    Ordered the Angle pads from Lawton audio yesterday. What kind of sound change did u hear?

      You should give the Angle and Alpha pads a try on the 900s. If you don't like them I can swing over to Gresham and pick them up from you

    That's pretty close to all the comparisons I could dig up on head-fi. It sounds like the TH900's have everything that I felt was missing with the LCD-2's.

    Just ordered the TH900 from Headroom (couldn't pass up the $1,500 price tag). My primary set of cans are the LCD-2 rev2.5 I also have the Denon D5000's but those don't get much use these days.    Have a few questions: I've always thought the LCD-2's warmth made the sound somewhat veiled. How...
