    Hi, I was a bit late to the party on Changstar. Registrations were closed by the time I found the site. I recently jumped in the headphone space, and have a few goodies on order.

    Hello friends, this is gurubhai (which btw means a student) from the old forum . Haven't been posting much lately since I have been quite happy with the system I have assembled over the years. However, I do like to DIY esp. tube amps and hope to be more active in the future in that regard.

    I look forward to your headphone modifications. People like you and Takato deserve more appreciation.

    Same name on Changstar.

    I'm a persistent forum lurker, so being one of the early members of CS doesn't mean anything.

    A nice big warm hello for all the super best audio friends. I'm pretty new to the headphone game in general and you can find me under the same name in HF & /r/Headphones, yeah registration was closed by the time I found c*!

    My current stable I'd phones consists of PSB M4U-1, AKG K553 Pro, AKG K7XX, Beyer DT-1350 and finally the Senny HD 800.

    Yeah Totl baby!
    Yeah that was funny, coz now I'm stuck trying to find my amp and dac and have no point of reference to start my journey, so deciding between mid-fi or go higher!!

    The only amp/dac I have is the centrance dacport slim which I received a couple of days ago. Till then I had only my Lumia 930 powering the phones through Deezer and Xbox music on HQ mode. So I'm already blown away by the difference in SQ already.

    Color me happy! For now...

    Welcome mate!

    I'm a bit behind and never heard of Xbox music on HQ mode. I have two Xbox 360s though. How does it work? Would love to see a thread about that!

    Well gee... I realize I never formally introduced myself at CS either. Same user name here and everywhere. I don't post much, kind of a cyber introvert, but I enjoy hanging out and reading stuff here and the meets have been a great place to spend time with some of you guys.

    I'm a film editor by profession, an old timer now I guess because I hate to say video or what would it be now, pixel editor? I used to be a production soundman on documentaries and some commercials and have done my fair share of sound editing for movies as well, so I use my ears quite a lot in my job.

    I got seduced back into audiophillia about 4 years ago after my divorce by this gorgeous... oh wait, wrong obsession...doh!

    Today I'm pretty much hating everything I hear and strongly suspect high end is a rat nest of the deceptive marketing of snake oil to the gullible and subjective bullshit. I'd rather listen to my 16bit Avid with my cheap Event monitors than anything else. Check with me tomorrow and I'll be swooning over my new phono preamp or Cavalli amp or Mike's modded HD800's, or Luis's Paradoxes, or...

    Check with me the day after tomorrow and I'll probably be all about the superiority of gramophones and wax cylinders!

    abernadi, did you ever try listening to 78s on a wind-up gramophone , holding the needle between your teeth? No electronics, no speakers or headphones, no cables, not even any air to get in the way, just music direct to the skull. Nothing like it!

    (And yes, I did. When I was, I dunno.... 8 or 9, probably)

    Opened CS for the first time in a few weeks and it's dead. So I guess I'll be opening this thing once in a few weeks from now on.
