Yikes, half off Hifiman...


TSAV is moving out our HiFiMAN cans big time, half off retail.

HE-1000 V2 MSRP $3000, now $1500!
Edition X V2 MSRP $1300, now $650!
Sundara MSRP $500, now $250!

Just our demo units left on the HE-1k V2 and X V2 but they will come with full warranty.

Give us a call or shoot me a PM or email at alan@thesourceav.com

I'm at RMAF right now and I gotta say, the HE6SE sounded pretty darn good as did the new HE1K powered from a handheld device.

Hearing the Susvaras out of the Auris Nirvana might be the closest thing to perfect I've ever heard.

That won't last very long.
If I didn't have the HE-6 already, I'd be tempted to join up with someone and save on the shipping/import.

I'm at RMAF right now
Any chance you can check out the new Schiit speaker amp, and find out more info about the new Vanatoo Transparent One Encore?

Schiit didn't have the Aegir there, only some documentation on it. They did have some Salk Audio speakers connected to 2 Vidars, a Freya and a Mumby and it sounded absolutely divine.

I got some info and pics on the Vanatoo, they sounded great. They are running a $100 discount until they ship at the end of the year. They are a fair bit bigger than the originals and sound that way as well. Definitely a good deal at $500usd

Thanks. Might be another pair for @dscythe to consider for his powered monitor search.

Here are some pics of the Vanatoo. Great sound with a ton of options. If you weren't dead set on actives ELAC has a really nice bookshelf speaker for $300 a piece IIRC. They had a nice streaming amp for $600 to go with it. Was a really nice setup.

Kanto Audio also had a great new line (TUK is what they called it) with reasonably priced active monitors and they are based out of BC. They aren't on their website yet but should be in the next month or two. I've attached a pic of their room too.

I linked them from my Google account. I'll upload them to photobucket later and repost.

Sorry guys!

Thanks for the mention! We're excited to get the TUKs into customers' hands, they sound great and have so many cool features (L/R swap, HPF/LPF, sub mute, LED brightness control, auto wake with Bluetooth, etc.). Feel free to PM me if you have any questions!

Hi, I'd like to introduce myself to the group. I've been a member on Head-Fi pretty much since it started, but have mostly only ever lurked since my early Grado years. Always wanted to attend a local meet but was hesitant because I've only ever owned common gear. If that doesn'e matter, I'd like to attend a meet sometime so I can meet some others in the hobby. Back when I first got into headphones, they were on the esoteric fringes of audiophilia. It's crazy to see how much things have changed since then!
