    Sonus faber PRYMA - An Italian-Made Beauty

    I should delete my prior postings... The audio experience is about evolution and progression. At 20+ hours... They're opening up beautifully. Tonality as described previously is simply correct and very musical.

    Sonus faber PRYMA - An Italian-Made Beauty

    Mine are on their way.... They look beautiful. They only need to sound half as good. My reference over the ears never leave the home.... So traveling with something uniquely different from a reputable speaker company is both novelty but respectable. I've owned several Sonus Faber monitors and...

    Does anyone have experience with the Kef LS50?

    The NAD 3020D is an amazing integrated amp as well for $349.00 new from certain retailers.   It offers a built in DAC and BT capability.  50 to 100 wpc.  I laughed because I usually don't like Class D amps- but it drove a pair of my 4 ohm speakers perfectly.  That's a tough drive...   I've...

    Best headphones for EDM

    Hi AdamTR,   I bought the final pair of the MHT220 from B&H.  Amazed by the dedicated pages here on Head-Fi.  How have I have let these come to pass?  Can't wait.  Should be a good pairing with my AK Jr.   -John   Thank you again!

    Best headphones for EDM

    I am taking the dive back to Beyerdynamics DT770 for my EDM needs.  I listen to a lot of atmospheric drum n' bass.  A lot of high frequency and low frequency details.  If my memory serves me well that fit the DT770's nicely.   How does the 250 ohm vs 80 vs 32 ohm variations affect playback? ...

    MCINTOSH LABS INTRODUCES NEW HEADPHONE AMP MODEL MHA 100

    My Audeze LCD-X's are a nice match; I am still enamoured with my MHA100 and look forward to pairing it with a new pair of Scansonic MB-1's (mini monitors) tomorrow.  A new sister company of Raidho Speakers in Denmark.    A true definition of an all-in-one system.

    MCINTOSH LABS INTRODUCES NEW HEADPHONE AMP MODEL MHA 100

    My entry into audio had always been with two channel based systems; previously expensive separates and eventually integrated solid state designs w/ monitor playback in semi-nearfield listening environments.   I got into head-fi and was thrilled to see that I could pair both passions of head-fi...

    Auralic Gemini

    My understanding from the literature is that power output is cut in half and does NOT allow for balanced outs on the Gemini 1000. I wanted the 1000 but the 2000 came up to my dealer and it was a steal to refuse....

    Auralic Gemini

    I am surprised more has not been said about the Gemini.  I wanted a single one box design (HPA and DAC); but had always been advised that the lack of separate amplification or heat sinks would diminish the quality of amplification and ability drive more inefficient HP designs.  My last kit...

    Audeze LCD-X

    I see you have a Hegel DAC!  That's part of my two channel system and I absolutely love everything they do as well....  It was once a plan to pair it with a HPA...  they might be my next venture.

    Audeze LCD-X

    I've owned all of the Audeze line minus the LCD3's.  I never had a problem with the 2.2's (pre fazor); XC's; or X's (my current and favorite of the line).

    What Cables for Audeze LCD-2?

    I agree. Outrageous.... But I wanted different sound signature and silver cables by brand X made a difference.
