    REVIEW & COMPARISON: Project Sunrise II and Bellari HA540

      My comparison is valid for my ears and my setup, no more and no less.  I used the tube I had already picked as my best sounding tube in the HA540.  Others have also found they prefer the 12AT7 in the HA540.  You should try one -- who knows, maybe you will prefer it slightly also.  But of...

    Tube Rolling for Bellari HA540

    Let me get this straight.  Earlier in the thread, you say:       Then when I post my impressions, you pout that I did what you asked?  I know there are no age limitations for posting but I sure wish there was a separate section for children.   I have no hidden agenda for...

    Amp suggestions for HD598, balanced DT880

    Hello and welcome,   Since you like the Sunrise a lot and you're also interested in the non-balanced Asgard, you may want to check out the new "Project Horizon" amp from the same company.  It has just started shipping and is a 48v version of the 24v Sunrise and is optimized for headphones...

    Tube Rolling for Bellari HA540

        I do get the less is more idea.  But I would argue that adjustable parameters are in fact good in any system where all the variables cannot be controlled by the designer (in this case there are quite a few: headphone, source, tube, ears), provided that having them does not itself...

    Tube Rolling for Bellari HA540

    Kstuart, thanks for the clarification -- we are on the same page there.   The Sunrise will be shipping soon and I will post back my thoughts then.  I did go ahead and email the company that makes it to ask about who does what (to confirm he's not just some guy who builds it as you had...

    Tube Rolling for Bellari HA540

      Hmm, a lack of options is a feature to some I guess.  As for me, if I happen upon an interesting tube someday I'd rather have the option to give it a listen than to not have that option.     In any case, the Bellari is not limited to the 12AX7 -- I and others have reported that we prefer...

    Tube Rolling for Bellari HA540

    First, I should state that for me also SQ wins the day.  If the Bellari sounds better to me then that one will stay, even though I like the feature set of the Sunrise better.     As far as "better design" I should have clarified that I meant the design of the unit generally, not specifically...

    Audio-GD NFB-12

      Quote:   You would want to disable the Fixed output if you are using a true amplifier (one without volume knob) so that you don't accidentally set the NFB-12 to fixed (full) and blow your speakers.  I assume audio-gd decided to ship it that way to be safe.   In my case my amp does...

    Audio-GD NFB-11

    I  just pre-ordered the NFB-12 also, now just have to wait unti mid-Dec. for the planned ship date.    I had been on the fence about ordering the NFB-3 because of the large size and lack of headphone jack (this if for an office system) so the NFB-12 looks perfect.  I wanted the more analog...

    Audio-GD NFB-2 & NFB-3 Delivery & Impression Thread

    Did anyone happen to order the 192KHzversion of the NFB-2 or NFB-3?   I realize the 96KHz version has better jitter handling so that's what most people appear to be choosing, but when I explained to Kingwa that I wanted a more analog DAC to tame my bright-ish speaker and referenced the...
