    The ultimate DIY? A Stax SRM-T2!

    Dual primaries would allow you to support both 120 and 240v applications. I always use dual, but wait for Kevin or Spritzer, etc. to comment in case there are any special considerations... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ^ Yeah I like that one (NYS221). Will have to remember it. The other is a cable connector, not front panel. Thanks!

    Just posted my review, part of the loaner agreement, over there. No death threats yet, and Jude hasn't pulled it. Maybe Dan is behind on is HF protection payments At any rate, I called em how I saw heard em. I really really wanted to like these...

    Dynalo Mini enclosure group buy

    I had both zoomed in and tried to have them at the same sizing. I’m ok with the vectored font rendering; just liked the original better. What did you use to do the layouts? Are they accepting these as PDFs or are you giving them CAD files of some sort? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The line weight looks a bit smaller to me.

    Just got done demoing a pair of these (hf thread) from ttvj. From everything I had read, I thought these would be my perfect cans. I have to say I was disappointed in the bass response of these. I compared them throughout with my modded T50RPs, and in most cases the T50s won in terms of enjoyment, even for classical (Shostakovich, Mahler). The T50s have some midbass coloration that the Aeons don't (seemed pretty flat to me), but I had a really hard time engaging with the Aeons. The T50s bass also goes deeper. I also just got my set of the Massdrop Hifiman HE4XXs, and I do like these. Beth won't like them (open)

    Inexpensive decent earbuds...

    Hmm, a quick look at these and they might work. How well do they isolate bleed (I.e., are they fairly quiet to those around you). I’ll shoot you a pm. Other than that aspect of the Apple dual driver ear pods, the sound of those is acceptable (if I can keep them sealed) Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ordered the RE400i’s. Got them. They are on their way back. Tinny, couldn’t get them to seal well. The best tips were the biflange stock tips. Even pressing on my ears for a decent seal showed me that these would never be acceptable so back they go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Nice! Std. board layout? Interesting SE headphone jack on the front, not sure I've seen one like that before. Care to share what it is?
