Haha, nice! Now you just need the TH-900 to round out the collection

Not sure if it's still there, but there was a px-100 on Kijiji for $20 a few days ago.

 
Ooh found it!

These are really great headphones for the price. It was the very first meet that we had, after people heard mine I think two or three of you guys went out and got your own

I'm trading or selling my Stax Lambda Pro and energizer if anyone is interested. Got a job with lots of travel so I want something easier to bring places. Small amount of static when you move the cable in the right ear around (likely loose solder point).

Quick question for everyone: I got a new headphone amplifier (trade in Dan Santoni) and it was dead quiet when I tested at store. Now at home there is power hum (95% sure) in left channel. Anyone have advice, leads on an entry power conditioner? On a bit of a budget but would be happy to hear suggestions or offers. Thanks!

Let me know if you'd like me to try fixing it for you. It'll probably help the sale value at least.

I've got a few different ones you can try. Drop me a line and we can figure out a time to check. In my experience, chasing down power hum both in home audio and pro use is half voodoo and random luck.

  How do you like the Fostex THX00? I've been tempted to pick up a used pair so I'd (hopefully) have a pair of headphones with more bass.


I love my ebonies!  
I found the mahogany to be a bit too peaky in the highs, the purple hearts fixed the highs but introduced a really thick mid bass, and the ebonies have the same smooth highs as the purple hearts with a more flat mid bass (although they are still a bit v-shaped).    I found the difference between the mahogany and the purple hearts to be larger than the difference between the purple hearts and the ebony.

Hey guys, sorta random but I'm probably kicking out one of my roomies very soon for not paying rent. If anybody knows someone who's looking for a room down in Fort Richmond, please send them my way. I'll provide additional details in PM.

 Also, any word on whether we're having a meet any time soon?

 
I'm open to suggestions from people. We could do one on short notice during Xmas break? Or something next month or whenever.

A couple random kijiji finds for you guys:
 
Denon D2000 - precursor to all the Fostex TH-x00 madness:

Some extra pads, always useful for fiddling and modding:

Think I could come demo them around mid January? I'd want to run them off my Schiit Bifrost Uber and GoVibe Martini. (I really should get a proper desktop amp...)
