  1. Cavalli Audio Liquid Carbon

    didn't they just do a group buy on massdrop?
  2. Focal Elear Headphone

    i might try out the utopia pads and see what happens, unless they sell the clear pads separately
  3. Focal Elear Headphone

    If anyone was interested, taken from a youtube video which took me a while to wade through on mute. I don't know how good these measurements are compared to innerfidelity's, but I guess I don't care that much either: The Elear was probably the worst "investment" I made in terms of headphones. It's not terrible-sounding but the purchase was poorly timed, all these random deals from retailers trying to liquidate their stock at the moment (to make room for the Clear) really hurts my butt.
  4. are the rubber feet simply adhered on the bottom? id rather ask that here than attract attention on the massdrop thread
  5. Am I late to the party? https://www.massdrop.com/buy/headamp-gilmore-lite-mk2-headphone-amp It's pretty cute, I regret not grabbing a mk1 unit over all these years. I like the knob!

    yeah i was just referring to the yokes that held the cups in place. thanks for the replies, i guess i probably got a lemon in that regard. secondhand on hf is starting to get on my nerves haha

    does your pair creak a lot? specifically where the cups rotate, i think it's tensioned by a spring

    what does the gen 5 offer over whatever they included at launch? i've barely used the usb input myself
  10. The State of DACSES

    maybe not the best suggestion based on the aesthetic bar weiss is setting, but the ayre codex seems to be pretty good, just a bit skimpy on the features Apparently they're also coming out with a QX-8 with a bunch of bells and whistles including streaming functionality if that's your thing http://www.theaudiobeat.com/highend2017/highend2017_ayre.htm

  13. The Headcase Stax thread

    i paid a lot more than that for my 009 pads from hi end workshop
  14. The State of DACSES

    nah lots of space around it, but the ambient of my room may have been a factor as well
