And it's back to enhanced quarantine. What is "outside" again?
I'm looking at a long 25ft HP cable. I calculate it will add 1ohm, but what about inductance?
Would it be significant, leading to audible effects? Anything else?
Asgard 3 hi/low gain switch is stuck in the middle. Might need to send it back for repairs it seems :(
Sorry to hear that man.
Contacted Schiit and they are having me return this one and they will ship me a new unit. Great customer service +1
Hope everyone is staying safe out here on the East coast with this Tropical Storm!
iFi ZenDAC 4.4mm Out has no right to sound this GOOD with HD 600. Props to @iFi audio for a lovely TI PCM implementation and clean amp stage
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I just divorced my HD600 for the HD6XX. The 6XX/650 love is real.
6xx and sw51+ is perfect blend of smooth/laid back but still dynamics and not slow. Throw modius in for a bit of gruntiness
Welcome to the "dark" side. ;)
Wait till you get your JAR
Looking at old pics of meets makes me really want to have one again when the environment is suitable for one. Another SoCal CanJam u?
I said @ChaChaRealSmooth living room. Actually a conference room could be better with "social" distancing?
The LAX meet was EPIC!!!
If things ever really settle down, I'd be up to fly across the Pacific to meet up with everyone IRL.
@monacelli , somehow I disliked instead of liked your sensible post on the Freya thread. Fixed now
Thanks! No harm either way, I figured it may have been accidental :-)
Oh Schiit, Freya Plus in der haus (replacing OG Freya). First impression on first song: Ooooohhhh, ahhhh, woahhhh.
I'm so happy to hear that you may soon be ditching the OG Freya :)
vinyl: more engaging. Digital more immersive.
Should probably revise to “vinyl: more engaging. Digital: more immersive” unless you want to be specific in both sides of this comparison hahah
StarShip 150meter hop in 10mins: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ux_t7R-heM
sorry, wrong thing!
Could have been a very different song:
Wrong thing! I think I love you;
But I don't know for sure...
Damn. I hope I haven't just spoilt one of my favourite earworms!
not a hundy degrees so no AC tonite means Aegirs! boy, I missed you fellas!
Well-mastered CDs sound great with Gungnir Multibit!
I’ve got an old MCA Royal Scam CD by Steely Dan that is spooky good through the Gungnir. It sounds so vivid without feeling artificially boosted or etched.
@dncnexus Keeps showing me great deals on ZMF headphones and I don't know how many more I can see before I crack.
Never heard a 2-way 8" monitor I liked other than the passive JBL L19 from decades ago. Can be found under $200 with some time.
yes, this is exactly why. the ideal approach to a 2-way is filterless midrange driver and a cap for the tweeter. the better the midrange driver the higher you can crossover the tweeter. if you want bass you need a big box or a separate woofer. i will be building a large open-backed cabinet with a detachable front panel to experiment with mounting different wideband drivers
I'm a 2 way 8" t-line weirdo. subs and minimal x-over has kept me happy for a while now. space constrained means no BWC unless i get rid of my living room, GF, dog, and several appliances. oh, and sell my car, too. Then cram a bunch of hornloaded junk into my house like the japanese 200 sqft posters on audiogon.
The ORFAS go for those Devore's 2 ways with those 10 inch made by Seas drivers. I tried to hear them once at RMAF a few years ago but the room was busy, unfamiliar music, and it was RMAF so I had no impression...
@tommytakis is killing me with the JAR650 hype
@pure5152 superb impressions btw!!
@E_Schaaf Minor correction, but there are minor mods applied to the front side of the baffle on both the JAR HD600 and 650. Both have some silicone (?) damping on the baffle, under the pads, and the HD650 has a whole cut out in the front foam. Minor stuff, but technically not all rear side. :)
Thanks for that! I didn't notice anything on the front when I was borrowing Brent's JAR600, but I didn't disassemble them at all to peek. Now I'm even more curious about the JAR650 which I haven't heard yet.
Guys, help me decide used gungnir MB or bifrost2 ?
@Vtory i think some gear have pretty strong character to how they sound. Bifrost 2 is one of them. I think it’s warm sounding. Not really a relative thing. It is what it is.
The reason why I think it relative is I can't fully agree with that statement even though I've been running it for straight 11+ months. Warm-cold is kinda too 1 dimensional oversimplification. I don't think it dichotomy either. It's not harsh or cold by any means to me. But how warm is entirely up to personalized coordinates.
@Vtory i agree, specifically in this case because the BF2 doesn’t really sound like anything else.
Heaven help me, I couldn’t resist the ridiculous sale price on the Liquid Platinum. Going to compare against Lyr 3.
@Skyline Those Gold Lions are new production, yeah? One of the things I love about the TS on the Lyr is that it's inexpensive new production so I won't have to worry about shelling out hundreds of dollars when I need a new tube.
The person is @Ksorota, and he has been great about sharing info about the mod. He listed the caps he switched out in the LP thread on head-fi, and you can also PM him about doing the mod for you.
