    The State of DACSES

    I can imagine having some use for wireless, and I also really like the fact that it has word clock in/outs that I could use with my Lynx AES16. Any opinions on how they sound relative to each other would be nice, especially as an all-in-one solution.

    Does anyone happen to have any opinions about the ifi idsd pro, which is also a high-end (ish) wireless DAC? I'm interested in getting a good all-in-one solution that isn't enormous and heavy.

    ..and somewhat drier to my ears. (take my impressions with grain of salt since I didn't have them side by side) What electrolytic caps?

    Compared to the KSE1200/1500, I suppose it is a bargain

    Order someone. In fairness, its understandable - time isn't free.

    It still costs something like $2k to commission an SRX plus build though...

    The headphones will hold the charge for a little while even after you turn off the bias.

    Thanks! Now to find a place that actually stocks these things.

    Could someone check whether the SR-404's headband fits on the Lambda Nova Signature? I broke my headband and need a replacement

    Lost old guy could do with some pointers.

    Try getting the HD650 pads replaced too, they're probably worn out by now.

    That is somewhat reminiscent of what I heard from the SR-X, but it could be specific to my ears since the SR-X are very sensitive to placement. I don't have an SR-X anymore to compare them, and my amplification system is out of order anyway...

    I thought the SR-X's highs were rather strange, like there's a strange null. I prefer the SR-5 over the SR-X by a reasonable margin. Its strange that you're describing them as veiled, though. Did you disassemble the drivers themselves? They are using the same drivers as the SR-X.

    Probably resonance in the housing... so yeah, that's what they sound like. You could swap the pads with O2 pads if you have a bunch of those lying around.

    So... how do you guys get balanced drivers when recoating the drivers? I've tried to recoat my SR-5 drivers a few times now, and the balance has been an absolute pain in the ass to get right.
