Little worried when I saw the box… Looks like it went through some serious schiit
Need a full review, of course.
Of course! I have extensive experience with the chair. I’ll throw in a few lines about the amp too.
Never heard of em so I was curious and decided to try em for some op-amp rolling. Jakub from Staccato was a pleasure to deal with; no complaints with the service!
How do they compare to other opamps you compared to? Do you plan to have a shootout post?
Haven’t tried yet. Will post something on the Soloist thread once I get some time with them.
HD580/600/650 and HD800S cables from LQI. I feel they do a good job.
Need to let them burn in. To let the sonic waves settle in and form as intended in nature, by bonding with an organic chemistry.
Mest Mk II - Brand new.
Everything from box, strap, accesories, cable and the IEM themselves, ouze with quality. If the sound is at the same level…
I look forward to your impressions. I’ve read that the measurements don’t’ necessarily reflect how clear the midrange is ( measurements show a little less ear gain than some other earphones in that price range), so I’m curious what your take is on that.
So far it is very clear and I would even call the midrange elevated. Male voices comes through very detailed and loud, so at this point I think the midrange is more clear and pronounced than most of my other IEMs.
First this came in (review loaner unit from Cayin)
Then this… which I bought used as a set for a deal…
Some new toys;
Guess I’ll label.
Bottom left is CMA Twelve. Outgoing unit.
Final D8000 resting on that. Custom made by me cable.
KEF LS50W II on Aperta stands.
Sparkos Aries Headphone amp under monitor.
Chord Qutest and Denafrips Ares II being tested against each other, see what I like more.
Chair out of shot, but will take a snap soon.
-1 for no chair shot.
Still getting it just right.
Balls down. Appropriate. Nice pic. Comfy chair?
