    Could a "guest" be added to my name on this list?  A friend may be in attendance (visiting the area from Boston) but is not a head-fier.  Thank you!

    Sophia Electric Royal Princess 300B

    Hello, all,   CADiver (Dominic) has sold me his Sophia Princess Carbon tubes, which I use as my main 300B tubes in a WA5-LE for headphones only.  I auditioned the SP Carbons against the SP Mesh tubes.  Dominic suggested that I post some impressions of the differences in this thread, just to...

    Where is the "real sound" within the 'high-end headphones' category?

    Hello, Der Germane,   I too “suffer” from a similar “problem” when listening to music, especially “classical” music (e.g., orchestral music, chamber music, solo piano, etc.). I studied classical trumpet/music at a conservatory in the US for many years at one point, and so came to the...

    Why no love for headroom amps?

    I have thought a bit about HeadRoom amps lately, especially after having sold my Headroom Hybrid amp after a solid case of upgrade-itis after RMAF 2011. I am posting some of those thoughts here. If someone from HeadRoom is reading, and sees that I am wrong about some things, PLEASE feel free to...

    Phili/NJ/NY/DE 1/28/12 Meet Impressions Thread

    Hello, all,   Had a great time at the meet.  And, although we were several people short of 20, the size of the crowd we did have seemed to work out quite well!   The pictures are great, by the way, Leesure!  Thanks for taking/posting. We all seem so much more thoughtful and peaceful than...

    Relocation! Interest check in a relocated Phili/NJ/DE/NYC meet on 1/28/12

    Hello, all,   I heard back from Jack Wu today, and it does not look like I'll have the WA5-LE in time for the meet.   I'll probably receive it early next week, unfortunately.  But, I'll still bring my BD T1 headphones, my headroom micro DAC, and my computer for an audio source.

    Relocation! Interest check in a relocated Phili/NJ/DE/NYC meet on 1/28/12

    Quote:   That sounds a little more reasonable than the Hyatt rates.  But yes, I'm sure we all agree, that having it at someone's home would be a heck of a lot more economical/convenient.  (No pressure, Brasewel! Ha!)

    Head-Fi 2011 Christmas Gift Exchange Whadjaget? Thread

    I received from my partner an outstanding recording of a modern trumpet player named, Arve Henriksen.  I used to be a "serious" trumpet player (i.e. studied in a conservatory) and appreciate the recording that much more because of that.  For those of you interested in raw sounding...

    Amps for the DT990/600... preferrably SS with a slight mellowing of the treble

    So long as it is powered well, say with the astrodyne PS at least, the HeadRoom micro amp sounds surprisingly good in my experience, and does not have an overly "clinical" sound.  But, without the astrodyne or DPS, and just the standard "brick" PS, the amp does lack a bit of punch, dynamic...

    K701 compliment

    Hello! I come from a classical music background, so I can relate a bit to what you are saying, especially as a prior 701 owner.  I'd echo the 598 suggestion. In fact, check out the sennheisers in general; if looking for clarity and decent soundstage, but with the edge off a bit, you may enjoy...
