    Seems like there may be an issue with the pictures on Vigor, two show a brown headphone and the last is a pair of green headphones.

    Schiit Yggdrasil GS Problem

    Wow, that sucks. That is not what I expected in a GS edition, B stock perhaps... But after looking at the product page I expected a new unit, with refurb Analog 1 cards. It seems like a good deal for the price but obviously not what you recieved. If you wanted a used one you certainly could...

    DIY Cable Gallery!!

    I have a table top mill, 2x72 grinder and a South Bend lathe ( from 1929 ) - I make the coolest titanium whistles and beads for knives. When I got into headphones and wanted to make my own longer cable, I thought "why not make the splitter/beads too". You cut enough titanium for two...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    Ordered the Suede BE2 pads - excited to try them, was looking to get another set of pads and I like the suede pads I have on my Auteur. :L3000: On the portable question earlier... I ordered mine with the Seahorse case, and I do plan on packing them to use on vacation ( when I drive ). Love...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    I loved the Blush Bhatik! So awesome, but alas it was not to be - I was there at 2pm CST but someone beat me to them. Whoever you are, I hope you are thankful the day after Thanksgiving for scoring such an amazing pair of headphones. So beautiful!

    Show us your Head-Fi station at it's current state. No old pictures please...

    Yes, we have an air cleaner in the kitchen, and another downstairs in addition to the filters on our furnace. I have thought of potentially adding something to the office too but have not yet. The Honeywell HPA300 we have in the kitchen has a low mode that is very quiet, we usually leave that on...

    Show us your Head-Fi station at it's current state. No old pictures please...

    Finally going to post something here after enjoying all of the great headphone stations. I have my headphone setup in my home office. I can listen while at my desk, or with 9ft + cables in my chair where I like to read. I am posting now because I just received my custom headphone holder that...

    Help me spend $10k (or more) on a kickass rig

    Well, reading through the thread you have lots of options presented so far so I will add mine. Like you, I enjoyed my Audeze, except for me it was LCD-XC - when I tried a pair of LCD-4 I also did not care for them and they went back. I have not gone back to try other Audeze... my XC are a pair...

    what are your other hobbies besides audio??

    Metalworking... learned to make knives but took too long so I started making metal whistles out of titanium.,.. fit much better in the amount of time I had available... they are great every day carry items. I even made some headphone cable beads which I used on cables I made.,..

    STAX SR-009S new flagship electrostatic earspeakers released (with impressions)

    Well since I have both a LTE Z10e and a Mjolnir Audio Carbon I can do a comparison there. I have had my Carbon, since April 2016... so I have some time with it. I have a pair of Stax SR-009 I bought just before that... and I really enjoy the sound of the Carbon with the SR-009, it sounds...

    STAX SR-009S new flagship electrostatic earspeakers released (with impressions)

    I do not have a BHSE, nor have I heard one but I think the Z10e offers a great value prop in that it would work for both electrostatic, and planar/dynamic headphones. The fact that it also drives speakers is cool too... depending on where you wanted to set up your listening station and how much...

    Have you heard the new Linear Tube Audio Z10e amplifier?

    Just another thought - I have my amp being fed by my Yggdrasil - I have both XLR and RCA cables going to the amp and I can switch between them ( since there are 3 inputs ) - most of the time I have been listening on the XLR input, even though it gets converted to single ended. I switch to the...

    STAX SR-009S new flagship electrostatic earspeakers released (with impressions)

    I am surprised at the amount of attention that the $6k Susvaras get in regard to selection of amplifiers... it would be an interesting poll that if someone dropped $6k in your headphone / equipment piggy bank how many would buy a set of Susvaras instead of something like a SR-009s, or some other...

    STAX SR-009S new flagship electrostatic earspeakers released (with impressions)

    The Linear Tube Audio gives you the ability to drive estats like the SR-009, traditional headphones and high efficiency speakers, so it is a pretty versatile piece of gear - if you are space constrained or want to add a tube amp to your setup it should be pretty interesting to you. I would...

    So this is how it starts....

    Have to love fun packages arriving with new gear in them! Hope you have a great weekend of fun.

    Have you heard the new Linear Tube Audio Z10e amplifier?

    Still getting everything dialed in but so far the 009 sounds really good with the LTA, but it also sounds really good with the Carbon... not sure there is one I like better yet with the 009. Initial impressions is I like the Voce a bit better on the Carbon than on the LTA, but I changed cables...

    Have you heard the new Linear Tube Audio Z10e amplifier?

    Ok, a few more tidbits for people wondering about how the amp drives certain headphones - I have been listening to my Audeze LCD-XC and my Ether 2. Both on the Lo jack, which is 0.5 watts at 50 ohm. For the Audeze, comfortable volumes are 8-16 ( out of 100 ) and for the Ether 2 I am 15-24 ( out...
