    The JVC FX850..Woodie perfection?. (A review)

    Oh my goodness. I just swapped a set of $35 Shure EA46CLS cables--amazing results! The sound is much more open, awesome separation and detail! Bass is still hefty with plenty of punch and kick. Anyone wanna corroborate with my findings???

    The JVC FX850..Woodie perfection?. (A review)

    Coming from a Westone/UE background, these fx850's have completely exceeded any expectation I've had of IEM headphones. They are just so full, so spacious, and with such great bass and separation and (insert audio adjective). I am using them with the Alpha Design Labs (ADL ihp-35ML) cables...

    what will you buy in 2005?

    I always vow not to buy anything at the start of each year. That, however, never goes according to plan. hehe

    Taiwanese Alessandro dealer, 2 questions.

    Hi guys, I've been too busy enjoying music to post much on this board...selfish me! Anyhow, are a great group of people. I would not have any reservations at all buying from them. I was lucky enough to visit their store in Taiwan, and they were extremely patient and helpful with me...

    Best DAC for under $1000?

    I believe the Scott Nixon Tubedac+ with external powersupply will give any sub-$1k DAC a run for its money.

    Recommend an isolation platform.

    I have heard very good things about Neuance audio shelves from all who have tried it. I'm tempted to eventually get a few's the link: (btw i'm in no way affiliated with neuance, just passing along what I've heard)

    OFFICIAL NEW YORK CITY MEET. Saturday Nov 13th Impressions Thread

    Thanks for all those who organized the meet, and the vendors that were there as well! It was really awe-inspiring to see the HUGE assortment of ultra-high end headphone gear there, and topped off with a 30-story unobstructed view of the Empire State AND Chrysler building! Sweet. I have to...

    Bunch of Cary 300SEI in Audiogon

    The AKG1000's, on the other hand, would probably work VERY well with the cary .

    Bunch of Cary 300SEI in Audiogon

    Better. By far. It wasn't even close. All across the frequency spectrum. Things were clearer, transients were snappier, greater sense of air, bass was more weighty, you name it. I honestly can't think of one thing the Ety does over the w2002 through my rig, besides isolation. But then again, the...

    Bunch of Cary 300SEI in Audiogon

    Ok, quick impressions of Ety 4p with Cary: I think a little bit of the tube "roll-off" on the highs help tame the ety's hyper detail effect. Bass is still as good as reasonably expected from the Ety. The tubes add a warmth to the Ety's that I've never heard with them before (I've only used them...

    Bunch of Cary 300SEI in Audiogon

    Thought I might interject here, seeing as I own a 300sei and all. When I first switched from solid state to SET i noticed an overall decrease in bass weight and impact, but the improvements in midrange and lushness of the treble far outweighed anything else. I recently swapped in an Emission...

    OFFICIAL NEW YORK CITY MEET. Saturday Nov 13th, 12pm - 5pm

    Yes. I can bring the xitel, powerbook (source), Nixon, and MS pro's. Maybe I could use one of the emmeline amps?

    OFFICIAL NEW YORK CITY MEET. Saturday Nov 13th, 12pm - 5pm

    Done. I can bring the MS pro and the tubedac, if someone has an amp i can plug with. (the 50lb cary is a little heavy to bring on a taxi with me...)

    Best looking headphone?

    OK, I concede that the RS-1, MS Pro looks pretty nice as well...but IMO it's still distant second to the w2002...

    Best looking headphone?

    No question. W2002 by far.

    How good are the RS-1's?

    W2002s or L3000s which is better?

    In response to Bangraman's post regarding tonality, when I first picked up the w2002 I noticed that reproduced piano sounded a touch "off"--difficult to describe, but having played piano for most of my life I am pretty particular about reproduced piano sound. This was with the w2002 being driven...
