They’re going to the office
Honestly after listening to them for a bit, I’d would have been disappointed in them at full retail, but for $399, they sound great. I also ordered the Dekoni sheepskin pads for them, but they haven’t made it here yet. I get what people say about the bottom end on these there’s just barely enough to say it’s OK. The sheepskins are supposed to give it a little kick in the @$$. Which is what it needs.
Mine were a bit better with around hundred hours on them. Leave 'em running for a few days. My only complaint with the Elegia was too firm clamp pressure. That varies by pair from what I understand.
I have Dekoni Elite Sheepskins on my Clears. I like them.
Nice, I just put in an order for the limited run Dekoni Stellia replacement pads. Was so tempted to also order the Elite Focal ones to compare. And if you’ve not already seen it, Torq’s thread on pad rolling:
There is a rumor in certain Hi-Fi forums, that the Elegia with the Celestee pads sound unbelievably fantastic (some claim even better than Stellia). It’s worth a try if you got your hands on those pads.
Nice! I recognize that box, and took delivery of some of those a few days ago. What tube type did you get? Mine are 12AU7WA first edition with rare Square Getters.
Here are mine.
I am not turning into a tube roller.
That is correct. You ARE a filthy tube roller.
Man, those tube rollers… Gotta watch out for them.
I am in the same boat! Gotta keep telling myself I have WAY too many headphones already…
BTW, the Radiance looks way better for sure!
I completely understand too many headphones.
Is the Burson a gaming DAC?
(Edit to add: I actually really like the look of it )
Ooh that clear top with lighting on the Burson looks amazing.
Well it does have a mic input… so … yes/maybe??
The Clear top is for demo/showroom purposes and isn’t available to the public… chill sounding amp… reminds me of a tube hybrid
Whaaat?! I want a clear top on my Soloist…
Which op-amps are in those? Vivids?
One tube amp per headphone channel?
balanced, of course!
I can’t tell from the pic but it looks like two separate amps which would be dual-mono (monblocks).
