    Unfortunately not--it's in use at another location. We're going to have some great systems to audition it on, though. See you at 9 am on Sunday!

    Wow, that's some amazing gear.

    Thanks for acquiring the Dharma. It looks very interesting.

    Wow! Highly interested in hearing the Chord. See you Sunday.

    Initial impression is slightly better clarity over tubes.  I really like how this amp is sounding with these, and I have a Lyr 2 so no issues with noise floor, not even on high gain.  Whatever fuzzyness there was to the sound with tubes is totally gone, everything sounds just a little bit more precise and tight compared to listening with tubes in and I'm really digging it.
     
  9. TimeLord
    That's interesting. Do you detect any differences in bass depth or decay rates?
     
  10. gandhisfist
     
    No so much in depth, as that was never really an issue for me with the Lyr 2 in the first place, even with tubes (I was using a pair of NOS Amperex Orange Globes).  Decay does seem just a bit quicker, which may be what I am describing as that cleaner, tighter sound.

    If possible, someone should try the Dharma on the MicroZOTL 2 that will be at CAF courtesy of Urban HiFi. That should be really interesting.... [​IMG] 
     
    Or even better, maybe someone could ask Urban HiFi if they'd consider moving their MicroZOTL 2 to the Head-Fi meet where it would likely get way more attention.....

    Do you all know if there will be a HP room Saturday like there was last year in addition to the meet? Saturday may be the only day I can come :frowning2:

    I think the main issue is headphone vendors are heading to London this coming weekend. So we locals are simply hosting our own meet on Sunday. So no, I don't think there will be a headphone room like last year. I read that Woo Audio would still be participating, and (just conjecture on my part) they may have a couple of headphone amps.

    Gotta say this is really turning out to be an expensive hobby - replacement of one component drives the desire to replace another. The first headphone I plugged into the Multibit (Denon AH-D2000) sounds absolutely fantastic. It really opens up. The other three headphones I've been using (HiFiMan HE-400S, NAD VISO HP50, and Sennheiser HD650) really aren't registering anything sonically new for me. I guess those three were built to "tame" harsh digital sound.
     
    I'll bring the whole kit, but really recommend you plug in your own headphones, via 1/4" jack or your own amplifier, to hear for yourself.
