  1. Mytek Brooklyn Bridge

    New Amp from HeadAmp - GS-X Mini

    I haven't heard the XI Audio so I can't comment on that, the GSX mini however drives the Arya and ZMF VC very well.

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    My favorite paring with the Empyrean is the Ampsandsound Kenzie Ovation using the 8 or 16 ohm outputs.

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    I still really enjoy the Empyrean but I have to agree that they just don't measure up sonically to the Abyss. They aren't in the same league in that regard. With the Empyrean you are paying quite a bit of for the design, materials and comfort. They are easily the most comfortable headphones I...

    Your “wow” headphones

    It's probably happened more often but there's three distinct instances I can recall. The first time was the Senn HD580 that was my initial this is what good headphones can sound like moment. The next time was the Stax SR-009, the unbelievable resolution and speed and quite recently the Abyss...

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    I'm using the norne silvergarde s4 as well and I think it's a very nice cable. It looks nice and is far more flexible than the stock cable. I do think it sounds better as well - but again, it's just a cable we're not talking huge differences in sound here. Might be in the minority here but...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    I've owned a pair of VC LTD Leopardwood for several months now. It's one of the pairs with the 'wine' colored hardware that I bought from a fellow head-fier. These are without a doubt the best closed pair of headphones I've owned. Wonderful speed, resolution and dynamics and just the right...

    DENAFRIPS Terminator: the King of R2R dac

    That's very interesting, did they provide any details on how it's different from the Terminator Plus? I bought a Venus II last year and I've been very happy with it. It's a wonderful dac and is easily the best I've owned. Built like a tank as well and the sound is perfect for my tastes.

    Warning About The Singlepower Extreme - Owners Please Read

    You could touch the top of a running 6as7 before? The old transformer must have been sagging a ton and barely providing enough filament current for the tube to function. There is no way a running tube of that size should ever be able to be touched "comfortably"

    Are there Silver SR325i's

    Quote: Originally Posted by n_maher I'd suggest calling Grado, maybe they redesigned the 325i and it's back to being silver again? Agreed sounds like maybe they are swapping back to the old style to cut costs?

    Can a $7000 amplifier be a bargain?

    Congrats on the JC-1's those are very nice amps. But on the subject of the bel canto amps they are actually quite expensive at $4k you can get the exact same ice power modules in amps from smaller manufacturers like D-Sonic and Wyred4Sound for far less money.
