Looks like Fang has to do his own damage control in the head-fi thread now, Jude's price must be as high as the Edition 6's Jan 12, 2017

        @HitmanFluffy appears to be ready to ratchet up the DEFCON level... It's going to be hard to keep a straight face.

        I think the thread, and indeed the whole affair, is too far gone for it to be worth trying to be constructive at this point. HFM shat the bed with the product itself, and then smeared it around with Da Bian's tact and charm.

        My best offer of $2 was countered with a $999 offer.

        Better yet, a 00000 sticker. Would probably blow his mind.

      Couldn't listen to the Mackie CR4 for more than 30 seconds, sounded worse than some logitech desktop 2.1 systems I've had

        Yeah I was visiting my dad and he had picked them up. Was shocked something sounding that way could even be advertised as a studio monitor..

        I had a combo here with @noaudiophile, who reviewed them in his site. He pretty much said they were shit. And I belive him and you (I dont have them r heard them so I would go with you guyses impressions n stuff). MR5s I have. Those r not too bad IMO. Its a shame bout CR4s.

        I had hoped they would be a little better, I did like the HR824. Didn't get the opportunity to hear the MR5 but they would have been well out of his budget anyway, I couldn't convince him to double his CR4 budget to allow for the LSR305 either..

        Not the same without Phife the funky five footer, but better than expected. Good to hear Busta and some other origionals on there. Sampleing Benny and the Jets was also a highlight for me

      Come to think of it what ever happened to that black HDVD 800 Sennheiser were making to go with the HD 800 S?

      May ease out of the headphone game and throw up an IC for the HD800S and cable modded DT880.. Too bad there aren't many marketplaces in NZ.

        I recommend an "original mackenzie super roll" to my patients and it's an easy amazon buy

        maybe something to check out in the meantime as it's not too expensive, hope it helps

        edit: Oh whoops, you're in NZ, well maybe it's available more quickly there than the aeron

        Looks like they do sell them here, though I think I'd prefer to buy the one made for the chair just so I can sell them together come time I decide to get an Embody. I made the terrible mistake of sitting in that chair and now it eats away at me..

      I'm confused as to whether HD800X is a name for a new HD800 mod or just a collective term for the HD800 and HD800S

        I only got to listen to it briefly, but it's probably the best hd800 that I've heard.

      Auction on a Hilo closes in 3 hours, current bid $605.. On the fence about it because of the lack of preamp function though.

        The LineOut can be attenuated, but it is digital attenuation rather than analog.

        Hilo is better than ygg if you add a good linear power supply on it.

        PS, the output level 0dBu and 20 or 22 dBu sound best.
