  1. Also late to the party..Utopia is the first headphone that I actually think it's kinda worth an hi-end price, game changer to this ears. The only negative point is the hot treble, but that could just be the amp. Which amps are known to pair well with them?
  2. @Playmusic I don't get it. If you are afraid you are choosing an costlier amp just because it has higher SPL, then just lower the volume on more expensive one and if you think the less expensive amp now sounds better, then your wallet thanks you.
  3. Why, build quality? It was in portugal, but funny enough those Soul Supreme are going to Spain for an audition I was told.
  4. Thanks for the suggestion I will check them out. Today I went to a store that Had the Zu Omen DefII and oh yes.. do they rock.. they obviously sound bigger, the only problem is their "wife acceptance factor", it is not so good, being much bigger than the others and they use the same drivers of the Omen and DIrty weekend so sound shouldn't be that different, from memory they aren't. Did you hear other models ? I also listened to the Soul Supreme, and damn.. this is a big step up from all the other models. The detail is amazing but still keeping that emotional engagement, the plates/drums hit so hard and poor recordings were still very enjoyable. They just push your focus entirely to the small details without any effort, the Def II, Omen and Dirty Weekend were a more of relaxed listening kind of sound compared to the Supreme, that is. Honestly I am not sure if such detailed focused sound doesn't get tiring after some hours, if I had the money I could see having one of the other models when feeling for a more relaxed session to complement the hyper detailed Supreme. I listened them with Leben 300 Tube Amp and RME Dac-2 FS. hmm I will look into classifieds.
  5. After years of only Headphone listening, I'm finally jumping on the speaker party. Coming from the headphone hi.end I must say it has been pretty disappointing on the performance side with speakers..Most need to get the volume up to lvls where it gets shouty or annoying to get some kinda engaging sound and most just sound thin.. specially if music is not perfect jazz records, some get crazy details but again, music is nowhere engaging. Enter the Zu's, I heard the Zu Omen Dirty Weekend II on the dealer(have never heard of them) and loved the sound, totally different from most known brands, this speakers can truly rock. They have such a dynamic and forward sound, the mid range is a bit in your face. All this without sounding too aggressive or bright, paired with an Hegel. Also heard them with the Leben tube amp and the system just turned to a very sweet tone while still keeping all that force. Very engaging speaker, it kinda reminds me the type of sound of the HP1000 which is my favorite headphone for the kind of music I listen mostly, rock and metal. Now I'm curious about the higher models, unfortunately the dealer has no stock and is only ordering after purchase. So I'm wondering if any of you have any experience with this brand models, or know other speakers with this kind of sound? btw, to my taste they look rather beautiful specially for such entry price:
  6. One of the new ss amps, att home i used with an kgss and kgsshv carbon so I dont think thats it.
  7. I went to a dealer looking for speakers and I ended up hearing the 007 they had on demo just while I was waiting for my turn. To my surprise I really enjoyed the sound and sounded different than the 007s MK1 and mk2 I had. To my ears the 007 has been always boring and the sound too soft/in the back, but this one was forward but still smooth, I enjoyed it. It was a silver one recently ordered from Japan and the serial number SZ2, wasn't suppose the new ones to be SZ3 ? Has stax upgraded the 007?
  8. I never heard an HiEnd universal so I'm curious if you though the campfire could get near the Custom JH13. Going universal with be less hassle with the ear molds thing.
  9. Decided finally to get some iems but I have been out of the loop for some time, so not sure if JH13/16 are still the thing to get or there's new king in town. You guys know what's up or just settled with the JH and never looked back ?
  10. So one has to be spritzer and have followed all the changes for years to tell if it's the last version or just know if was built after 2015, that's it?
  11. Some years ago I entered a group buy for the @kevin gilmore stepped attenuator board and ended in the draw until now . Today I'm having a carbon built and would like to use it but dunno if there is any code avaliable for it and instructions on how to program it. Is there any resource?
  12. Their Instagram story sure is compelling https://www.instagram.com/kaldasresearch/ Now we will just have to wait for spritzer meh or yeh.
