  1. I agree-- he is a wottaguy! It's great fun to see actual measurements on these old dinophones that we've all been tuning by ear. I get a particular kick out of the square wave tests-- back in the day, square wave testing was one of the most rigorous tests... and one of the most fiendishly difficult to interpret usefully. But if you stare at it long enough... Since we know the Telefunken TH 700 is basically an OEM clone of the Peerless PMB 8, do we know whether the 8 had the two different drivers the Telefunken had?
  2. Didn't we find that Micro Seiki (or its OEM) used polyurethane diaphragms, as Koss used in the ESP-9? The smaller Martin-Logans look to me like some chairs designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

    Audeze LCD-2

    Goes without saying, I'd very much like to audition the LCD-2 and would certainly bring its direct ancestor T50 along to compare.

    I'm just wondering if any of the younguns have even heard of Virgil Fox. Interested? Try this link and sample the Joseph Jongen Symphonie Concertante. Since you have one of the good HE-5s, I'm very much looking forward to your opinion of the LCD-2.

    There's a reason I'm asking: The test goes beyond the "but hey, whuddiffeye wanna headbang, huh?" and points to how well the makers did their work designing the magnetic structure of the 'phone.

    That brings up one of the Continuity of Plausibility tests for headphones: how well does the LCD-2 handle high SPLs? ie, does it stay clean when it plays loud enough to elicit bitching?

    Ah yes, the Allegri Miserere. I still have my 1980 Tallis Scholars LP.
  8. Are you speaking of the T50RPmkIIn in its native dress or in a custom Smegclosure?

    Hmmm.. You're a good candidate for Team Ortho. Prepare for a late-night visit from three spectral ortho ninjas. They wear the chains they forged in life. Or are you a former member?

    Advice? buy BOTH and feed your wallet the painkillers.
  11. In everyday nonpicky use, the affordable Pana and Canon P&Ss (less than $200 and preferably less than $150) are roughly equivalent-- if you had to buy them sight unseen you'd be able to get good photos from both. They're just not that different. They both take AA cells and SD cards. One will have a slightly wider-angle lens. The other will weigh less or be more compact. Once pickiness enters the picture, things change. If you take a lot of time exposures longer than 8 seconds, go Canon. If you've seen one too many purple halos around bright objects and can't stand to see another one, g
  12. [looking at collection] Oo! Lutoslawski!
  13. Har! You figure he'll soon regret getting into this Neo-Ortho business? He might! Thanks for the furthurr impressions, NoNoNoNoNoNo. Puts it in perspective nicely.
  14. This is sounding... well, semi-promising. Don't forget to try the open-palm test and the binaural recording test.
