      They are good, better than HD25s sonically, but not enough for me to upgrade from them.
      Jaben Audio in Melbourne has them too. If you like balanced sound, none of that bass biased crap, then you won't be disappointed.

      Sold all my vintage hifi kit (Yamaha, marantz) and currently selling Mordaunt Short MS10's.

      Bought new Ugly Cables interconnects, and moving my rear speakers (Krix Brix) to the study as there's limited space - will replace the rears with some Equinox or KDX or whatever's easily available.

      Turned my sub back on after 5 years of living in an apartment - its nice to have < 30Hz again

      EDIT: Anyone know where to get foam pads for Sennheiser's?

      Probably my favourite suite of music. I'd love to hear it performed live at some stage. We played a shortened version of it in the band I was in when I was still playing (clarinet & sax), and I've had a soft spot for it ever since.

      They put 'service' in the url as a joke though...

      Anyone got a small desk top amp to drive those John Blues that SKC sold me some time ago? I fired my King Rex's up today to see some blue wisps of smoke coming about the back of them.

      Get one of the Bel Canto amps with the USB DAC. I'm sure you could find a second hand S300iu if you looked hard enough. They are quite small, and will never ever break.

      I've still got the fubar iv plus DAC headphone amp. Don't think I've blown that up yet.

      Picked up the B&W PM1's yesterday, hooked them up to a 30 year old Philips 45wpc integrated I had in the back of the cupboard, and a cambridge DACMagic that I've been lent.... first test was just with the Apple TV via optical into the DAC, streaming some FLAC files from my phone, and I had to double check I hadn't turned the main amp on and was driving the sub..... for a small bookshelf speaker, that weren't even on their stands (just sitting on some pillowcases on the TV stand so as not to get scratched), the PM1's sound ****ing awesome.

      Can't wait to hook them up to a decent amp and on their proper stands.

      Currently trying to decide between the Peachtree Nova125 (when it comes out...), or the Cambridge Audio 851A and a DACMagic Plus. Nova doesn't have tone controls, which is the only thing that's putting me off it (and yes, I know some people will consider them sacrilege...)

      Here's an interesting read http://www.kenrockwell.com/audio/sony/1982.htm

      Are SACDs and outboard DACs really as terrible as he says they are? I'm not enough of a sound engineer to know if he's telling the truth or not.

      I think the biggest problem with any high resolution audio format is that a bad recording sounds bad no matter how well it is played back.
      An ugly girl is ugly whether you take a photo of her with a webcam or a 50MP MF camera.

    20. 10-01-2012 05:33 AM #1195
      Elements of truth in what he says.
      Vast majority of CDs are not recorded or mastered in ideal 'audiophile' situations.
      Get yourself a Chesky recording in HiRes and you can listen to what a good recording should sound like.
      I love my 8k DAC, my Phonitor amp and LCD2s, but at the end of the day, I want to listen to music, not frequency responses and square waves. I could just as easily be happy with lesser equipment.

    21. 10-01-2012 05:35 AM #1196
      he comments that outboard DAC's can't handle the artificial >0db peaks, I'm curious as to why the internal DAC in the CD player would be any different.....

      oh, and I ordered the Cambridge 651A and a DACMagic Plus today. got them at 25% of RRP without even really trying.

    22. 10-01-2012 05:46 AM #1197
      Mike, give these guys a go - limited titles, but better than Chesky IMO;

      Very different to the W3... Still trying to decide if I like or not.

      Have you got the Red SE too?
