    Greetings yall! I've been away from the community for some time and realized that some of my gear is not receiving the love it deserves. Please check out the gear below. There is some fun gear from the time I got into this hobby. At at a recent HeadFi meet here in Chicago, was surprised and delighted to see just how far it all has progressed since I found gear that has satiated my 'upgrade-itis'.

    Thank you for your time and I look forward to finding a great new home for this gear.

    HEADPHONES

    • Beyerdynamic DT150 250ohm - $175 shipped (NOS) - 9.5/10 - PICS
      I purchased this as NOS, in original box. It came sealed, however the box looks ancient. The headphones were seal in the the plastic bag and the cable appeared unused as well. I put about no more than 10 hours on these and debated several time if I should keep these or not. The DT-150s are neat vintage cans that have been broadcasting and studio standards for years. The isolation is on point and sound is accurate. These are not flat by any means, but I enjoyed these closed cans.
    • Beyerdynamic DT1350 - $140 shipped (1st owner) - 9/10 PICS
      These are the newer "facelift" release. I purchased these new and used them for 80-100 hours or so in the office. After taking a on-the-road sales position, they didn't see much time outside of storage for the last couple years. I enjoy the tight sound and killer base. They are on ear, however, the rotating cups/yolks allow for so many different positions that they are surprisingly comfortable for long use. I drove them with my LGv20 and they works fairly well, nothing special, but they pair much better than I expected with my IPad and my old Note 3 and Note 4.

      I was originally recommended these by a DJ and was sold for their isolation (when you find the right seal). There is one oddity to be aware of, the earpads need about 10 minutes to warm up before they make the perfect seal. After they are fully broken in, this will probably go away.
    • AKG K7XX (Massdrop 1st run) - $140 shipped (1st owner) 9.5/10 PICS
      Man, I remember the early days of Massdrop and was thrilled to get a chance for an early run on these AKGs. I haven't spent much time with other models, so I am not sure about the AKG house sound, but these are fun cans. The K7XX definitely diverged from my Hifiman and Beyer tastes, but were very fun to own. Unfortunately these suffered the same fate as all my other headphones.. I have less time these days to enjoy this hobby, so when I do it's almost exclusively with my Hifiman HE-4s.

      These K7XX have about 40-60 hours on them. I didn't run them much, mostly just took them to mini-meets for people to check out. I would say they are one comfortable headphone.

      **One thing to note, please see the photo and description before purchase. The 3.5mm end has a slight deformity. It does not affect the sound or fit to the 1/4" adapter, but needs to be made aware.
    • Fostex TH600 - $400 shipped (1st owner) 9.5/10 PICS
      Original owner, near mint condition. Insane base impact and depth. I hate to see them go, but I rarely pull these from the box. These TH-600s have less than 100 hours of listen time.

    • Beresford Bushmaster Mkii - $175 $150 Shipped (with insurance) First Owner (9.5/10) - PICS | REVIEW
      This DAC+Amp is basically new, with less than 100 hours of use. I picked it up a few years back to tide me over while I waited to find the right AudioGD DAC/Amp.

      The Bushmaster is detailed, clean, clear, but not harsh. It was originally voiced for Sennheisers, and pairs great with the HD800 as well as the HD650, but also has more than enough headroom for my power hungry Hifiman cans.

      The only real downside to it is there's no USB input, only Toslink/coax or analog. Beresford isn't a household brand, but squeezes so much into such a small package.
    • PS Audio GCHA (Gain Cell Headphone Amp) + DAC - $300 $275 Shipped (with insurance) Second Owner (9/10) - PICS | REVIEW
      Brutally honest sound. Clean, tight bass, and crystal-clear at low volumes due to the gain-cell. An added perk, NO channel imbalance, even at low volumes! I would keep, but my AudioGD is a touch more forgiving for my bright headphone tastes and replaces the similar low volume effect with their digital volume implementation.

      The DAC is this is rather good. It's the same dac chip that is in my Meier Audio, so very familiar with the dac sound vs the amp sound. An oldie, but a goodie. This combo would make one hell of a great starter into the hobby, like it did for me. Please note, this GCHA is the latest version that PS Audio released. It has both the DAC and balanced inputs, unlike previous variations. This would make for one killer starter setup.

    • Hifiman EF-5 12AU7 Tube Amp - Second Owner (Local) (7.5/10) SOLD - PICS | REVIEW
      This comes with with stock tube (uber bright) and the Raytheon old-stock (super smooth), will throw in a foam tube damper, though I ended up not noticing any improvement or compromise with or without the damper. (My experience with larger tubes like an 6SN7 is an entirely different story!)

      This amp can put out 2W per channel to drive any power hungry cans out there. It is a hybrid amp with Solid State outputs and Tube pre-ins from what I've read. It uses quality OPAs and really has a great sound, but too many choices for rolling OPAs and Tubes for me. I found I roll far too munch, rather than slowing down to just enjoy music. This amp will be perfect for anyone who wants likes to fine tune their sound signature.

      Comes in Factory Box, included stock fuse, Russian NOS fuse, and audiophile-grade fuse.

    Based on market value of THX00 I could make an offer.
