My full thoughts will be up today on IF. Basically, Sennheiser did this because they could, I applaud the sentiment. The headphones will not be sold separately unless you're getting them for a second

Not taking this one for the team. Carrera > Carrara.

please stop copying your posts from head-fi.

I'm curiously to hear your full thoughts of this system Tyll.  I sure wish that you spend a little more time listening to the system, but then again 15 mins of a private audition is really all you need any way.

You mean, you can tell a mongrel from a purebred in 15 minutes...?   :o

 

I thought they were all mongrels....     :D

I think we need more details about that quick demo if anyone can actually use it for any idea of what is on offer. Was the Amp fully warmed up? It looks like the internal DAC was used with the cable going into the USB slot, what software was used as the player, and what tracks were used? Looks like Tyll admits the demo is almost useless and he needs more time. He needs to have HIS choice of tracks and at least an hour IMO to get a handle on the SQ. Also I find my 009s need a decent amount of volume to come on song as well, so if the usual volume control and track restrictions are applied by Senn again, that would affect the demo as well.

It would be interesting to know if the boundaries of Stat tech has been pushed further albeit with no budget constraints.

Sennheiser say their target markets are First division footballers, Oil Sheikhs and Drug dealers :rolleyes:

Wonder if they might have some B stock models for sale, slight chip to the marble :o

Get in touch with A2A and see if George will do us antipodeans a favour....

He is not importing them as they are not worthy of importing (enormous price tag and no one who will buy one).

This does play into the EU regs for using tubes as they must be fully enclosed.  Well than there is the wank factor which this product is full of. 

I don't know in detail how EU regs look like (especially if they apply to products currently sold, or retroactively), but there are tube amps in stores without fully enclosed tubes. Would be interesting to know since when is EU directive or reg is effective.

There could still be some advantage to that EU reg ...

The amps can't get CE certification with exposed tubes.  No way around that so most have an "optional" tube cover which nobody buys. 

That amp looks like something from ETF so hardly commercial.
