    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    I have never heard the HEDD hut from what I have read it seems it should play well with tubes. I have a 300B amp which is stunning on speakers and I would love to demo with these phones.

    Does the Hedd pair well with a tube speaker amp?

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    Hey I'm not trying to imply anything negative at all. I'm just highlighting some greatly differing opinions on soundstage from people who have actually heard them. I do hope your assessment is correct because if so then indeed this could be a game changer.

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    'Humongous soundstage'...hmm, confusing, I haven't heard these personally but this claim seems to be contrary to several other impressions where the soundstage is reported to be nothing out of the ordinary?

    Raal Ribbon Headphones - SRH1A

    +1 for the YFS cables. I ordered both the headphone and speaker copper cables for the SR1a. With my Bryston amp they provide a tad more warmth and tame the highs ever so slightly. Not night and day (not burnt in yet) but already a tangible improvement in my system but YMMV.

    Actually I'm hoping when I receive my copper cables that the SQ difference is enough to swap out the stock cables back and forth for genre or source tuning.

    Looks like really nice cables. I think you have the warm Pass Labs amp? I could see that silver cables would be a very good match with that amp. I went for copper after market cables which I think will be better suited with my Bryston amp. All horses for courses.

    Considering $$$$$, Shangri-La vs SR1a shouldn't even be close.

    Raal Ribbon Headphones - SRH1A

    OK noted, but AKG managed to design a locking mechanism for K1000 30 years ago. Maybe there is good mechanical / layout reasons why it works on K1000 but not SR1a, I don't know.

    Raal Ribbon Headphones - SRH1A

    The one thing I would like to see is the ability to lock the driver positions, say 4 or 5 preset clicks representing 15-30-45-60-75 degrees.

    Thanks Jerseyboy. how much is that YFS speaker cable for SR1a?

    When folk here are buying after market cables for SR1a, is it the headphone cable or the adapter box cable, or both? I guess both.

    Christer, I'm interested to know which specific tracks you thought fell short?

    Raal Ribbon Headphones - SRH1A

    For Class D amps, would there be any advantage in going for 2 x 500W @ 4 ohm vs 2 x 250W @ 4 ohm? I guess the extra headroom might help bass performance, or is 500W total overkill?

    Yes mine has been fully refurbished. Might be enough?

    Danacable Lazuli Reference Thread

    Do any Lazulli / Lazulli Ref owners here use adapters at the input end (specifically Lazulli / Lazulli Ref cable adapters: 4-XLR > 1/4" or 3-XLR > 4-XLR). Do you feel the sound quality is compromised in any way, anything missing or lacking as a result, instead of going direct?

    Interesting, you also have Auteur just like me. Do you plan on keeping both? I will (ha ha). Auteur is what I will use for 90% of my listening, smooth and relaxing. When I want to have a soundstage fix, that is when HD800 will cone out to play.
