    Sell everything for a RS1?

    I found the dt1350's sound much fuller with nuforce hdp > bottlehead crack with speedball using a bugle boy 12au7a + tungsol 5998 (I believe the 5998 brings the out put impedance to about 90- 100 ohms)   It sounds significantly fuller than the hdp by itself, my macbook pro headphone jack, or...

    Sennheiser HD800 Certificate for Frequency Response Arrived

    New Beyer DT1350

    Well, this thread has been too much for me!!!   I have been reduced to secreting myself in a room, whispering on the phone and making dark deals with strange men from Headroom.   With three day shipping, I will not have to explain this to the wife until Monday, "Honey, I have some good...
