    Nuforce HEM Discussion & Impressions

    Just got my HEM6 in - loving them so far, although its a little early for impressions. One question - how do I go about taking the cables off? They were hard to get on, and now I'm scared I'll break something trying to get them off.

    Nuforce HEM Discussion & Impressions

    Thanks! I'll definitely post my thoughts. Quick question - I've read through the entire thread and saw that you mention using the Alo Audio Tinsel 2 pin with the HEM's. Would you say its a worthwhile investment (even if just in build quality - don't want to get into snake oil territory here)...

    Nuforce HEM Discussion & Impressions

    Been a while since I've posted here... Grabbed the HEM6 for 199 in the Amazon lightning deal - beyond excited since my preferred sound signature is that of the LCD-2. Hoping I've finally found an IEM that'll suit me, and at an awesome price.

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    This is exactly what I expect as well. I personally love the intimacy and dense fluidity of my pre fazor pair of LCD2's, so I've refused the urge to upgrade so far. I just don't think that I want to hunt for an airier soundstage and a "cleaned up" low end - I knew what I was buying with the LCD...

    Thanks! Yeah, I love my 1900, although my opinion isn't much to go off of since its the nicest amp I've had/listened to. I don't really use the tuner myself, since the local stations are of no interest to me. Out of curiousity though, whats wrong with it? The icing on the cake is that the price...

    It doesn't go silent - it turns off. Completely. And then after a while, it comes back up again, all by itself. Turning it on and off right after doesnt help either. Which sounds like a heat problem to me maybe? But its never too hot to touch. Which ones are the output resistors? I'm a nub haha...

    Just stopping by to verify something - I've heard that the McIntosh 1900 has a weak power switch, so I plugged it into a switch at the outlet. Is this the right idea? Sidenote, hopefully I'll soon be able to build my case for it. EDIT: HELP. This just started, but the receiver has just started...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    Mmkay, thats what I was looking for - I don't see any. I will at some point attempt to recap this myself, though, just to be safe and to have it running at its peak. I'm a high school kid though, and I basically learn by doing, but I'd rather not break this. Is there anywhere I can find a really...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    There's no a cracking on the cap that I can see - as for leakage, I don't see anything but I'm not sure if I'm looking for the right things. I did check, and the cap doesn't get hot while playing. Just out of curiosity, how hot should these receivers be running on average? I don't think I'm...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    Well, I'm back guys - and with news! I didn't think I'd be jumping in quite this quickly, but I'm happy to say that I'm the proud new owner of a brand new - to me - McIntosh Mac 1900. She seems to be in perfect working condition, and I got her for an absolute STEAL. (A special thanks should go...

    What in the world. I don't know what I'm doing, or if I'm just selectively blind to good deals. I JUST went through the ebay newly listed vintage amps and came up with squat. I've seen online that a good price for the SA9500 is around 450? Looks like a good price.

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    Yeah, I was using them with a Lepai tripath, which is only 20 wpc. The SX750 definitely looks like an option, its widely available on ebay for 250-300, and one on craigslist near me for $150. The only thing is that every time I look up something I find on ebay or craigslist, I find an AudioKarma...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    Thanks for the advice! I kind of followed it - after doing some searching, I found a local who is heavily into vintage audio and contacted him. Unfortunately, he told me that because of the number of "flippers" in Miami, the odds of finding something at a good price are very, very low.    On...

    Project Ember Tube Rolling

    This might be a silly question, but I am in the market to get a Project Ember to pair with my aune t1 and LCD 2, and I was wondering what the 1a+ sc heater option did? I tried google but came up blank.

    Does anyone have thoughts on using the T1 paired with a Project Ember? Do you think there would be a noticeable improvement? (with LCD-2's)

    Is there anywhere we can buy Rev 1 pads?

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    Have you tried changing the pads? I belive the new pads were found to move them closer to LCD-3 territory

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    I honestly think it may have been that you hyped the sound up a little too much for yourself in your head. Although sending it back to Audez'e could be worth a shot

    Those are the different gain settings. Basically, it'll decide the volume and how well driven the headphones are; at lower gain settings it might not be driven well.

    I got mine for $895, just check the b-stock of basically any audio store and hope that you find one. I got mine from headroom personally

    My old Solo HDs are lying around... what should I do with them?

    Yeah, but then a lot of people will tell you that much better value can be had for the same price as the ath-m50's. so it goes both ways.
