  1. Thanks, sounds good, I'll give that DAC a try. I think the Dynalo sufficiently powers the dynamics I use most often (Senn 600/650/800), so I guess no real need to spend more in the amp department.
  2. Curious, would the Audio-GD NFB-1 AMP be an upgrade coming from a old Dynalo/Gilmore Lite? or same tier? http://www.ebay.com/itm/272135504355 That one? Does this other one look decent? http://www.ebay.com/itm/262292908029 Thanks
  3. For other folks that really dislike the tiled "Start Menu", I would recommend http://www.classicshell.net/ The start menu in Windows 8 is extremely frustrating to use. It's less terrible in Windows 10 but still not to my preference.
  4. Don't feel too bad, the auction ended early because it was sold outside ebay. I was planning on sniping in the ending moments with a ~1100 bid.
  5. The Woo auction includes a SR-009 so it's not completely worthless
  6. wow, thanks for the link. Ordered another pair as a spare, hopefully they're authentic.
  7. The VIVO XE800 is suppose to be oem'ed by Vsonic with GR07 drivers, they seem to be a bit bass light though. https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/100-Original-VIVO-XE800-High-definition-moveable-Hifi-Sound-system-in-ear-earphone-with-mic-Voice/318282_32704376144.html Oh, takes a few weeks to get them from that seller unfortunately.
  8. heh, people paying to be beta testers for hifiman again.
  9. That's very unfortunate for cheapskates like me.
  10. Design looks fantastic, sign me up for one as well.
  11. So this board with this power supply, plus chassis/jacks/pot, and a transformer. Sounds great for the $300 price. Is there a specific transformer that you would recommend or prefer for this particular build? Thanks again.
  12. Are there any specific Chinese ksa5's that you'd recommend? I remember reading some had issues or component omissions. Thanks.
  13. He was selling it for $1699 before, but those sellers fell through because of the "no paypal". http://www.ebay.com/itm/STAX-SR007-Omega-earspeakers-Stax-SRM-717-Energiser-/322158463497?hash=item4b02240a09%3Ag%3ANHYAAOSwMNxXZn7G&nma=true&si=RlSwwNM9U8jTbjfIF7OPswxjUA0%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 http://www.ebay.com/itm/STAX-SR007-Omega-earspeakers-Stax-SRM-717-Energiser-/322162703406?hash=item4b0264bc2e%3Ag%3ANHYAAOSwMNxXZn7G&nma=true&si=RlSwwNM9U8jTbjfIF7OPswxjUA0%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 edit: Oh, the new listing includes free shipping that the previous two didn't which explains the price difference.
  14. http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/AKGK701.pdf http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/SennheiserHD800.pdf The HD800 has noticeably better bass and more realistic soundstage/imaging. The K701 has more upper mids which a lot of people find disagreeable.
  15. To my ears the HD800 is a improved and "fixed" k701. Similar freq response and sound signature but better in all regards. I use the K701's almost daily as beaters and on days with more available listening time I'll break out the HD800's. I listen to the HD600 and HD650 on occasion for a change of pace.
