    Where is Singlepower? Where is Mikhail?

    This thread has thoroughly scared me out of sending back my amp, I had some problems with the power supply of my MPX3 for the past couple of months and started a correspondence with Mikhail and he was supposed to send me a box for the amp back in March and never did. Now I don't know what to do...

    Questions About MPX3

    Hello all, I have owned a maxed out MPX3 that I purchased from forum member Voltron around December of last year, and I am very happy with it, but I have gone through four different tubes in my driver socket within that period. Three of the tubes were the stock EH6SN7, with each creating...

    Car maintenance help needed!

    How are the Corda Headfive & Rs-1 togeather?

    I am thinking about changing the direction of my system from a pair of HD-650's running balanced with a Equinox cable from a Benchmark DAC-1, to something that has more kick for rock and is a more fun and exciting listening experience. I have come to the conclusion that I want to try out a pair...

    Zappa Plays Zappa: Tour de Frank!

    I would say go with Uncle Meat, it’s my favorite of his early period and has some of his best classical inspired musical passages. It is also about as weird as it gets even for zappa, but if you like that then go for it. While I enjoy the You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore series I usually go...

    Show us your "Apocolypse Jukebox"

    It’s funny, when I opened this thread I had Hallelujah from Buckley just starting. What a song to go out on! My list would be, King Crimson- Starless (That ending is just like the Apocalypse) Genesis-Supper's Ready (Anything that is called Apocalypse 9/8 must be played when the time has...

    what are other people wearing?

    In Union Square in NYC, coming home from my summer job I saw a man with E5c's and another time I saw a man with E3's in Queen's Forest Hills station, that’s about it for seeing nice headphones here haha. For me you would not see a thing because with the Sensaphonics they blend right in and if...

    speaker hiss....

    I had those and I had the same problem and I could not fine a solution so I sold them to my dad. I found that it was highly annoying and I tried different sources and playing with the cables and nothing worked. If you still have a return policy on them I would try that but I think it is a...

    Sensa or custom UM2s?

    While I have not owned the UM2, I have owned the E2c, E1c, and for over a year the UM2 sibling E5c (also auditioned the Ety 4p for a week) the Sensa's stomp on all of them. I see no glaring flaws in the presentation of sound of the Sensa while with each of the other IEMs there was something...

    Gentle Giant Appreciation Thread

    I like them, but they are soooo hard to really get into. I adore Octopus and enjoy In A Glass House and The Power And The Glory, but when I try other albums of there’s I lose some interest or they just don't stick in my mind. I love the fugue parts that are in many of there songs and the...

    Foobar kicked my a&*& again

    All you have to do is copy the whole foobar folder and put it somewhere safe and it should save everything including all your settings. What I do is copy the foobar folder before a format or moving to another computer and then when I install foobar on the new destination I just delete the folder...

    Best headphones for progressive rock?

    I would agree on the under $500 the HD650 with the silver dragon is great from music ranging from Opeth to Porcupine Tree and classic prog like King Crimson and Genesis. One thing to note though is that if you get a pair of HD650, is that you do not get the whole deal until the rest of your...

    Initail impressions of DAC1 to Balanced HD650 w/ Silver Dragon Cable (w/ pics)

    At this point I do not see any more amps in my future. This is probably it for headphones for a while because I have finished my portable setup and my home setup. The next stage I want to get into in a couple of months is a basic speaker setup, which is also a reason why I got the benchmark to...

    Windows XP blue screen #8, something about IRQ Less Than

    I used to have that problem but I fixed it by not overclocking my CPU, I originally had it set to 10% overclock on my bios but once I reduced it to no overclocking the problem went away. If you are not overclocking anything then it just might be a conflict like the others have said.

    Need some help with a Benchmark DAC1

    I think I am going to sell of my PPA and buy a moon audio balanced Silver Dragon for my setup. While I love the PPA in certain aspects I want a more aggressive sound and it seems like going the balanced route with the Silver Dragon might be my best bet (I also love the look of that cable ) I am...

    Anyone tried Sensaphonics with amplifier?

    I own a pair of Sensaphonics and use if from an amp every night (tried it with a PPA and SR-71 and soon a Benchmark DAC1). It does improve the sound, but it is not really a night and day deal. I recommend if you want a smooth amp you should try and get an Emmeline HR-2 Headphone Amp, it is know...

    Need some help with a Benchmark DAC1

    I actually have the money to buy a balanced cable because of the money I saved on eBay rather then buy it new. While I enjoy the PPA, some have touted the DAC1 balanced Sennhiser HD 580-650 line as some of the best in the business and that really interest me. I am thinking that if I get a...

    Questions about Opamps

    It is actually a problem that many have had with IEM and was said that sometimes they disappear with different opamps. This is from a search on the forum that I did trying to see if others had the same problem but with a XP-7. http://www4.head-fi.org/forums/showt...ht=AD8610+hiss EyEPoD...

    Questions about Opamps

    Currently I own a PPA amp with OPA627AP op-amps and while I have no problem with the sound I am thinking of changing the opamps to something else. My main problem with the amp is that I hear a clear and annoying hum with my IEM's (Sensaphonics) but not with any other headphone. I tried a 75 ohm...
