  Hey guys, one of my students is just starting to dip his toe into the headphone game and is looking for some budget/midfi gear. Does anyone have anything to sell? He's thinking something along the lines of a Senn HD598 and Magni2. He's just a high school kid so doesn't have tons of money, but is open to suggestions or deals. It'd be primarily for computer use and gaming/FPS, and a decent pcie soundcard might be the way to go actually. @dscythe I'm looking at you, maybe you've got some spare parts lying around?

 
I have a Shure SRH840 I can part with, also a Vali 1, Pioneer MJ751

So did a driver just simply die on you? Sadly this is not even remotely the first time I've heard of this happening...

Yes, I have one of the original 100 ohm versions which are all ticking time bombs... Auzdeze is now putting 200 ohm drivers in the LCD4's.. different design i guess?

Yeah there were massive failure rates on those. I remember bringing it up once and asking what kind of failure analysis they did, citing my experiences on actual fracture and failure analyses in my lab work. Interestingly, my posts seem to have disappeared on the matter.
 
If I had to guess what they changed in the design... perhaps thinner or narrower traces.

Ugh, so a parcel that was supposed to come in today is now held up at Customs. I got a call from UPS and they tell me that Winnipeg is actually the worse city in Canada for bringing parcels into. Huh, good to know.

  I can part with my HD600's. Not sure if that's within his budget though.

 
Damn - let me know if you want to let those go, maybe something my bro or cousin would want. Or me if i ever decide to just unload everything and just settle on the 600 hehe

What time do you guys want to aim for on August 7th? Does noon or evening work better? I have a preference for noon or early afternoon myself, but could manage either.
 
Tentative location is my house in Fort Richmond (two minutes from the U of M), set up in my garage, and I can get the bbq going. 
 
 
p.s. anyone here have a small power amp they'd like to sell? I'm talking super small here, like a Topping sized amp (I know Velo has the Mini-X, but that's still too big)
