      Is it possible to change the search box to allow searching for three letter words? Can’t search for amp or dac.

      Guys, in the future, make one (locked) thread for information and another one for comments. Keep the noise separate. Problems solved.

        Not every topic, just the reviews or measurements by the illuminati. Why would that be unsustainable? Is that worse than chasing down rando clutter now?

        We'll make some changes to the site to surface useful information better. Our choices are: 1) get better at managing content or 2) pretend the site isn't growing. Just chill out and enjoy the site.

        Let's see, one of you participated in a bunch of loaners, didn't like the direction of the site, asked for a refund of your donations and huffed off into the sunset. Then you came back. The other person is a weirdo but that's pretty much 90% of the members.

      Eikon sold. Maybe HD 800 again when they drop to under $900 new. Going to try to get the speaker setup right first.

        If you're thinking on getting the HD800 again, may I ask, which Mods do you plan on putting in, this time? (Just trying to get a gauge on people's Modding preferences.)

        Likewise on both. I can see why you wouldn't want to do it (possibly cause it kills the re-sale value).

        But since I don't plan to sell my old ones... I'm thinking, mind as well fix the 6kHz treble peak w/ the Resonator & bring up the Midrange w/ the Absorber.
        Plus, there's no-way I could fuck-up those two Mods, enough, to damage the HP's, heh.

        They have three or four dedicated listening rooms for speakers and a desk or two for headphones.

        I found everything I was looking for in Vandersteen (happened to be 2ci in my case but probably any of them would be almost as good to better). Great imaging. Easy to place it you have 3 feet behind them. The individual speakers play as one. Full range enough for me. Kinda sweet, in a good way. I forgot about them and just experienced the music.

        The downside is they are big and shipping will be high when you decide to sell them in a couple of months. Save the boxes!

        Who knows for sure? I'd be using it via Yggdrasil xlr and Eikon balanced. Saga from Yggdrasil SE to vidar SE. I'm not happy with the compromise required.

        The manual implies that all SE outputs are summed. I believe Yggy and Gumby SE outputs are also summed. Bit of a git if you're using a single Vidar. On the other hand it's fine to use the SE inputs. I guess the Ragnarok speaker outputs would need to be summed too?

        SE headphone output on the Mj2 smooths over everything way too much,
