        Thanks for making this shitty year more bearable. Having this place to inform, entertain, turn me onto new music, or just have a pleasant conversation has done more for my sanity than I feel any therapist could have accomplished

      Having trouble convincing myself to sell my Clears. Starting to feel with the proper amps Clear/Auteurs could compliment each other nicely..

        I think your headphone tastes are similar to mine so I hope you share your journey here. I have a pair of Auteurs arriving soon thanks to Carlos.

        Awww you lucky ass! You got his ABW!!! Mine are teak and I am currently falling in love with them but if had my pick would have gotten a harder wood. I got a pretty awesome deal on mine so I'm still incredibly happy but yeah... What amp are you going to be running them off to begin?

        @Inoculator and I appear to be gear twins... both have an SW51+ on the way, both just bought Auteurs, both seem to favor Gungnir Multibit (though I have A1 vs A2), and both have a LP that will more than likely end up being sold once the SW51+ arrives! Whacky!!!

        @e.schell Great minds think alike ;) Sold my LP, have an Asgard 3 on the way to audition and hold me over during the SW51+ wait. Only a few more weeks to go on my Auteur, can not wait to own one again. I have been curious about A1 vs A2, I do have a feeling tonally I wish I had the A1.

        Well i'm curious about the A2... perhaps sometime down the road we could do a swap for a few weeks/month ? I would be open to such a thing. From everything I have read it seems like A1 is more to my liking but....curiosity...cats... all that...

        Be careful, as they can also fry IEMs and you can't ever get super for them. I wouldn't pay more than $100 for anything from LH Labs anymore.

      Anyone heard the JVC FW10000? Pretty neat looking. Seems kinda price for single DD IEM but who knows... maybe they sound amazeballs?

        They're available online here, but the usual retail outlets don't have them listed. I called JMPlus and all the demo units that were used during the press events here in March have gone back to JVC. He said maybe later this year they'll do more promotion of the F10k and F1800. I don't normally keep up with the local head/earphone news, but if you remind me in a few months I'll check.

        Had a customer bring in his pair and I got to compare it with my Sony IER-Z1R. Fit decently in my ear, the JVC was little more comfy then z1r for me. Bass was fairly level on the JVC, z1r extended lower and hit harder. The JVC was notably more forward in the upper mids than z1r. Customer who brought it preferred it over the z1r which he thought was little too bassy for his music.

        @Merrick ’s advise can’t be overstated. Me and my friends had a new acquaintance over for a shroom night and he started tripping bad (real bad). I guess he must have felt insecure, as we were new company. He thought we were trying to kill/harm him and he started crying out the window for help. That was the last time I had shrooms.

        LSD is as good or as bad as your last trip. Same place, same people, same music: all kinds of things can send you in one direction or the other. Know /that it does wear off./ It can be a great lesson in just knowing you will survive. Seriously. Want to mess with this stuff? Take the rough with the smooth. It is not always going to be cosmic peace and watching the colours come out of the speakers...

        Hard to go wrong if these promise to match your tastes and listening space. The value proposition seems quite high. The two month audition period ought to give you enough time to decide whether you are happy with them. (They give them a 100 hour factory break in, so you can start critical listening soon after you set them up.)

        Listened to Zu Soul Superfly ($4k speakers) next to a pair of Tekton Lores (very similar configuration and spec) and they sounded as good as each other. The kicker is you can get Tekton Lores for $1000 or less. Zu speakers are way overpriced IMO.

        I was kicking the tires on these too. The Dirty Weekend are reasonably priced at $1k, and high efficiency at 97 dB/W. On paper they're a perfect candidate for a single Aegir. Along the lines of @PTS' comment, I decided to place an order for the Tekton Lore Reference instead ($750 shipped).

        @purr1n Have any shots of your trafo? I took a quick look at the site and it legitimately seems like you just need XLR in, RCA out, 2x transformers, something to put it in, and a bit of wire. Simple as hell, but probably $200-$250 in parts. Oh, and a resistor.

        Parts are higher than I unthinkingly assumed. The $550 for the AmpsandSound box is looking OK now. The Iso-Max Jensen offerings are < $300 retail, though perhaps those transformers are significantly cheaper builds

        Marv mentioned somewhere here the 1:1 jensens used in the iso box and the cinemags looked pretty close to the same, since they shared the same lineage. Maybe Marv can get a deal from David at Cinemag?

      Sonarworks + Roon + Clear's = good stuff! Added SW a few weeks ago with trial, decided I can't EQ as well as the preset and purchased!

        I always thought the Clears sounded excellent but got bored and gave Sonarworks a try. Now when i turn SW off it sounds like I'm listening under water. Haha. The Focal Clear Wired Average preset does wonders as far as I am concerned. Highly recommend giving Sonarworks free trial a whirl with any headphone they have a preset for.

        OK, you've prompted me to try Sonarworks again, and you're absolutely right. These presets completely transform the HD800S.
