  3. Meitner / Museatex Bidat with John Wright's $750 "Plus" Update

    I'm selling my Bidat — a great vintage DAC with the legendary Philips TDA1547 chip. I'm the second owner. A few years ago, it had the $750 "Plus" upgrade from John Wright. You can read more about it here: http://www.museatex.com/bidat.htm It's in perfect operational condition. Cosmetically...

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    I actually wrote a review comparing the two: https://audiophilestyle.com/ca/reviews/a-tale-of-two-sennheisers-the-hd820-and-the-hd800s-r766/ The HD820’s frequency response is just too far from neutral to be recommended, especially for the price. The HD800S, on the other hand, is a spacious...

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    I just got a pair direct from Sennheiser that supposedly is brand new from the factory. There’s no silk on top of the foam, and there’s no XLR included, but there’s a card with a coupon code to order a free XLR cable.

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    Are you referring to just the number stamped on the headband, which seems to be the last five digits of a 10-digit serial number printed on the invoice? Is there some way to determine when a pair was made? I ask because I got a new pair that has a higher five-digit number on the headband than...

    Are Sennheiser serial numbers sequential? Or is there some randomness or code that determines them?

    Neumann NDH 20

    How do your impressions differ from the graph? How would you describe the sound of the NDH20?

    Neumann NDH 20

    Has anyone done any measurements of these, bedsides the German magazine?

    Neumann NDH 20

    Doh! I was looking for it in standalone reviews. Thanks! Do you have EARS? I'd be curious to see measurements of these.

    Neumann NDH 20

    Do you have a link to your review of the NDH 20? Very curious to hear how they compare to the Elegia, which I own and like.

    LH Labs Geek Out v2+ Discussion Thread

    Thanks for the reply. I’m glad I didn’t upgrade the firmware, then, since I prefer the digital volume control and manual gain control. Just out of curiosity, do you unplug your headphones when changing sample rates, or don’t you think the pop sound is significant enough to do any harm?

    LH Labs Geek Out v2+ Discussion Thread

    What firmware are you running. Mine with 1.5 does this. But I was hoping 2.1 fixes it?

    Can anyone compare the (stock) Fostex T50RPs vs. the T50RP MK2s vs. the T50RP MK3's for me?

    Hello,   I'm intrigued by the three iterations of the Fostex T50RPs, but I haven't been able to find a review that compares all three versions against each other.  Does anyone own(ed) all three and willing to lay out the sonic differences?   Thanks!

    Meridian Explorer² Impressions Thread

    Just thought I'd give my two cents here.   I've had my E2 for more than a year now without any issues. My main DAC is a Yggy, and I use the E2 three or four days a week when I'm in my office at work.    The E2 remains the best sounding portable DAC I've tried. Recently, I bought an Apogee...

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

      Thank you for the update, Mike. It's a company that really cares about its customers that would write this! I placed my order in late-May and, while I of course wish I had the Yggy already, there's certainly no hard feelings. It's great of you to come on the board and let us know what's going...

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    I ordered mine in late-May, too. I think there are quite a few orders ahead of us.

    Thoughts on a bunch of DACs (and why delta-sigma kinda sucks, just to get you to think about stuff)

    Has anyone who went from the M7 to the Yggy not preferred the Yggy? (I'm just curious as a current M7 owner in the Yggy order queue.)

    Audio-Gd Master 7 - Discrete Fully Balanced DAC (PCM1704)

    In earlier posts, both you and Purrin seemed to indicate the Yggy demolished the M7. Is that no longer your view?

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    Does anyone know the status of these new black Yggys vis-a-via the current Yggy waiting list? Are the black ones hitting the website separately? Can people on the current waitlist now opt for a black one?

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    Haha. Well, if I wasn't worried about sound quality, I wouldn't be purchasing a Yggy!

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    So, my order number is 323xx. I'm hoping that other non-Yggy orders are included in the order numbers?   Otherwise, if they're going in batches of 250, mine's going to be arriving a lot later than late-June!

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    So, this may be a dumb follow-up, but how does the chip deal with 24-bit audio, if it doesn't throw out any of the original bits?

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    Thanks to you both, Purrin and DACLadder. Along with hans030390 -- who sold me an Audio GD NOS1704 (my first "good" R2R after a few cheaper ones) -- you two have provided such great posts on R2R DACs, which have been really helpful in my DAC journey. I've owned the Modi and Bifrost Uber before...
