Welcome. Quick messages/chats but this area is emptied from time to time so nothing permanent here!!
metal123: Hi Could anyone please lemme know how to connect a headphone amplifier output to a stereo power amplifier. thanks Oct 19, 2020 12:18:36 GMT
solderdude: use a 3.5mm TRS to RCA plug cable. Oct 23, 2020 21:30:09 GMT
Mr Trev: : What's the good word? Just wondering if there's any chance you're getting the Fidelio X3 and the Drop x Hifiman HE-5XX in for review. The X3 has been getting wildly differing reviews and I'd like to hear your take. Oct 28, 2020 17:01:47 GMT
Mr Trev: I just read a review of the 5XX and it has me wondering if I should reconsider the option of swapping my 400i for a Sundara and get the 5XX instead. Oct 28, 2020 17:03:42 GMT
solderdude: There is very little chance of me running into HE5XX or X3. I would have to buy them and probably won't keep them. Oct 30, 2020 19:43:36 GMT
Mr Trev: That's too bad. Between the Tuberati foaming at the mouth because the X3 doesn't sound like the X2 and the forum jockeys screaming bait-n-switch because the 5xx seems like a face-lifted Deva not a reborn 500, I was hoping for some sane impressions. Oct 30, 2020 22:52:08 GMT *
solderdude: I don't think it is a reborn HE500 nor is its sound, a slightly different Deva. Lifting along on sentiments and nostalgia. One day I will probably measure the X3, no idea when. Nov 1, 2020 7:56:38 GMT *
Mr Trev: Have you listened to the Deva? My main reason for thinking about trading in my 400i is I want something with more "bite". In hindsight, I probably should have held off and got the 560 - of course HFM didn't lower the price of the 560 until too late. Nov 2, 2020 21:58:08 GMT
Mr Trev: That put the Sundara on my radar, but the 5XX/Deva would be about $150 cheaper - if it has the sig. I'm looking for Nov 2, 2020 21:59:51 GMT
lobalwarming: B-b-ut Mr. T, sigs are a health hazard. Nov 11, 2020 10:32:50 GMT
Mr Trev: Meh. Can't be any worse than ordering COVID infected IEMs from China :D Nov 13, 2020 21:50:59 GMT
solderdude: B-b-ut ... China doesn't have Covid anymore... or at least very little or they just claim that. Nov 15, 2020 11:02:25 GMT
Mr Trev: :D Frans, don't think I've heard you mention IEMs before. Any favourites, or do you even roll that way? Nov 15, 2020 19:15:54 GMT
Rabbit: Frans doesn’t like iem’s. The ones I use the most are the Sennheiser ones. Something 800s I think. Not cheap, but excellent! Nov 16, 2020 9:23:58 GMT
Mr Trev: I haven't tried any Senn iems. One that I wouldn't mind checking out is the IE40 Pro. Nov 16, 2020 17:24:48 GMT
darkarn: I find the IE 80 to be excellent, especially if you can get them in a sale Nov 17, 2020 6:43:34 GMT
darkarn: Right now in DROP, the IE80s and IE60 are on sale Nov 17, 2020 6:44:00 GMT
darkarn: Where can I get my tubes identified? I am unsure of their exact names but am also not sure where to start asking Nov 18, 2020 7:58:07 GMT
