  1. Well, I have had various of his products and currently own an Isabella and a 30.2. Love their sound, so I am happy w/o understanding nor wanting to understand why it sounds good. Ignorance can be bliss!
  2. I have an audio itch that needs scratching! So I have been looking for an inexpensive balanced DAC with a balanced amp built in. I found the Audio-GD for $500 plus $71 S&H and although most may have not listened to this unit I would appreciate if "on paper" the claims by Audio-GD are sound and make sense. http://www.audio-gd....1/NFB10.1EN.htm If you all have a potentially better alternative I would appreciate hearing about it. Cost is a major issue, I would "feed the monkey" by selling a few items. Thanks.
  3. I took my K1000 out (have not listened to them for a month or so) and currently listening to Joe Pass and boy is this fun and just pure pleasure.
  4. Darn, no money and I have always been interested in hearing this dac! Good luck and happy thanksgiving.
  5. I feel as you do and why I had a K701 re-cabled by Alex. Kept that combo one for about 4 years.
  6. Made it to the range w/ a new to me Glock 19 and a S&W 640. It has been a long time since I had been so did not shoo so well, at least I hit the target.
  7. Just call me of PM me Mike. I have some older russian 6H8C tubes in addition to a bunch of 6SN7's you could borrow to roll!
  8. Now that the HE500 is retailing for $699 it is a moar better deal!
  9. Mike, I still have the MPX3 that was further upgraded after I bought it from you and it was also upgraded/fixed by the good Doctor! If you want to borrow it let me know. Cheers.
  10. Nice to see it worked out for you Mike. Since you most likely will be selling the amp soon let me know.
  11. Mike, Ron (HiFlight) is good in electronics but he lives in Fort Myers. If you would like to contact him send me a PM for his phone number. Cheers and good luck.
  12. Very happy you are doing well Shelly, hope you have a fast recovery.
  13. Had to look up the meaning of "lecher", sadly I resemble it! Of course I will deny it.
  14. Went out for a walk, glad I did the weather was quite nice at 68 F and then went for some cuban "cafe con leche" with a "guayaba" pastry. All in all a nice way to start the day.
  15. Mike, I have an HE500 you can borrow to see if it is of your liking. Shoot me a PM if interested.
  16. Hi Justin, since I am a member of Graham's forum and like his amps I once asked him and he stated no just the way Sennheiser UK chose to show their cans. Fireball, we all hear differently and your best bet would be to listen to some of the amps you are interested using your HD650. I have owned the X-Can (original), X-Can V2, and X-Can V3 all stock and modified by Mike (Pinkfloyd) of Rock Grotto. My favorite was the X-Can V2, it is not the most accurate amp but it gets my foot tapping to the music. Good luck on your search, it is a big part of the fun.
  17. Nice going Larry, good luck on the remaining 40 lbs.
  18. Late to the game but the iBasso D4 w/ a TopKit from Ron sounds mighty nice and it does have a line out. I have not tried the Pico DAC so I can not comment.
