    There were more threads, they all disappeared silently one night...
     
    I tried one of the Heaven range at a meet (it was long ago so I don't remember which model [​IMG]) and was not impressed but back along people were raving over the gold Piano Forte / Tera combo, but saying it was an acquired taste.  From looking at your signature it seems you have them all so I guess you like them and it's worth a try.  If you don't like it you could always use it with your Tralucents - everyone likes them! 
     
    You didn't ask but it's worth mentioning, the K3003 sound terrible out of the Tera.

    Thanks for your views! Yes, the PFs out of anything would be an acquired taste... :wink:

    Ah... The AKGs were at the back of my mind... Thanks for sharing your experience! :)

    Yes, the K3003's have a low impedance (8 Ohms) and are very sensitive (125 Hz). Equals no bass and sound (IMO) as if there're playing through a tin can with the Tera. Ouch!!!
     
    Should add as a p.s:
    that this is with the 'Reference' filter fitted.

    Thanks! Hmm.. Will try the Final Audio Heaven series and FI-BA-SS in due course as well. :)

    I am pleased with the performance of my PF-IX and LAB with the Tera despite the low impedance of these phones.
     
  6. Kiats

    Thanks, HiFlight! I am glad to hear that! :)

    One that I'm in a way glad I've never had the chance to try - could have been a wallet emptying experience...
     
    I hadn't heard of the LAB so had to have a look - very pretty!  They shouldn't sound good on paper but that just goes to show specs aren't everything [​IMG]

    Yes, the PFs are very addictive and not for the faint hearted. :) The Lab1 is another one which is lush and addictive.

    Thanks for this, Nirmalanow! The Tera has safely arrived at its new home. :) It will be loved and cherished.

    Enjoy your Tera Player Kiats and please report if you find any headphones that work really well with it.:)

    Thanks, musicday! Do iems count? Happy to report that Final Audio Design's FI-BA-SS sounds spectacular with the Tera: great soundstage and layering. And the details... Breathtaking combo. :)
     
  12. Kiats
    I am happy to confirm that the Ref1 and the Lab1 are excellent with the Tera Player. :)

    And sadly it is true that the AKG K3003 sounds rather flat... :frowning2:
     
  13. Nirmalanow
    Glad that it has found a home where it will be appreciated :)
     
  14. Kiats

    Most definitely it has! Thanks, Daniel! Very kind of you. :)
     
  15. Mimouille
    Well the Ref1 and Tera are beautiful pairing...better than with 1plus2 from memory.
