    T+A Solitaire P planar magnetostatic

    Got more time with the Solitaire P. I like that it is completely free from distortion and I can hear for hours with it (on high volume levels). I thought it to be a warm sounding headphone before I bought it and was surprised that it sounds very neutral to me. Sometimes I get the effect that it...

    T+A Solitaire P planar magnetostatic

    Got my Solitaire P today. Yes, it´s all about synergy! Magical with Dave/Mscaler and Innuos gear. Much better than with the HA 200 and simple laptop. And in this chain surprisingly much better than my HEK-SE which I really love.

    There are some rumours btw on a forum at Audiophilestyle that there will be a new offer for Orange fuses (pay 2 and get 3) in august.

    CHORD ELECTRONICS DAVE

    Which SR Orange fuses did you choose for the DAVE and which should I get for the MScaler? And is there some kind of manual how to change the fuses?

    CHORD ELECTRONICS DAVE

    I just got new BNC-cables from a renowned manufactor (not Wave-cables). The cables have a tight fit on the M-Scaler already but are just too tight to fit on the DAVE. I never had this problem with other cables (have used 3 different pairs). The cables neither fit on input 1+2 nor on 3+4...

    Official HIFIMAN HE1000 Impressions Thread

    This was the first thing I did before posting here. I wrote to customerservice and hope for your answer coming soon. I didn´t use my SE for two weeks. Just taking them on again after my holiday - and the right channel didn´t work anymore.

    Official HIFIMAN HE1000 Impressions Thread

    As I wrote in another thread. The right channel of my SE is dead after owning the SE for nine months. I hope that Hifiman will solve this issue properly.

    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    It was the replacement deal offered by Hifiman here at head-fi last year. The SE replaced my V1. I am a little worried about shipping the the SE to China, waiting a long time, pay customs for the repaired model etc. By the way - what embarrassing for Hifiman that they still have this issue after...

    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    The right channel is dead on my SE. Dubbelchecked with two different cables. I got mine as part of the upgrade program in november. Somebody else who had issues and sent in the SE for repair?

    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    The mids are changing a lot with more burn in. For me they sounded much thinner in the beginning and the kept on changing up to 200 hours. But the biggest changes came after changing the stock cable to a high end aftermarket cable (Norne Einvaldi).

    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    It could be interesting to read two user reports about aftermarket cables with the HE-1000SE on the Norne-cable thread. One user descibed the Silvergarde3 and I have just written about the Einvaldi...

    Norne Audio (Was: Norse Audio): Feedback & Impression Thread

    Norne cables seem to be the sweet spot for the Hifiman HE-1000SE. I got my Einvaldi-cable last week and it is a sheer beauty in many ways. I hope you understand what I mean when I compare the change from the stock cable with going from a mid-class LCD-TV to a highend LG OLED TV. The picture...

    CHORD ELECTRONICS DAVE

    DAVE (+HMS) and HE-1000SE is a combination made in heaven. There are at least two on the HE-1000SE thread reporting about that. I am one of them. I sold my Utopia because they didn´t get any listening time any more. Be sure though that you listen with a HE-1000SE that is well burnt in (at least...

    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    Yes, that´s true. I sold my Utopia. They didn´t get any listening time anymore. The mids which were a little thin in the beginning have become better with more burn in.

    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    I got mine today. No quality issues! I am quiete impressed by Hifimans upgrade program. I shipped my HE-1000 to Great Britain just one week ago (without the original case) and got the SE with DHL express including case. Already enjoying music with them out of my DAVE and HMS. I will give them...

    Hugo M Scaler by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    I just got the information from Wiebren at SBooster that you should not use the Ultra MKII with the SBooster 15-16V MKII because the Ultra cannot handle the peak-loads of the MScaler (something my dealer didn´t inform me about). So be careful! But the SBooster without the Ultra will stay - I...

    Official HIFIMAN HE1000 Impressions Thread

    I ordered the HE-1000se via the upgrade program. Are there adapters from 2,5mm to 3,5mm with good quality so that i could continue to use my Wywires cable?

    Hugo M Scaler by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    Yes, tried the other cable solo. It works! BTW, I hoped for a miracle and got both cables in place again. Instead for just crackling noise I got "only" dropout every second or so. I am not good att that kind of science - but is this maybe a kind of electrostatic problem - caused by RFI through...

    FWIW. Tried just one BNC Blaxius^2 cable and can get 384 kHz from HiRes files without problems. Rob, any ideas, why I can´t get the double rate with two BNCs?

    Hugo M Scaler by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    I think TheAttorney is right. Peter tries everything to find a solution to the problem (As I said before, his Blaxius 1 works fine with the HMS), and I have tried some changes of the configuration of the cable (without success by now). His Lush^2 USB is a great cable. But the BNC connection...
