Unless you're going for a Gumby or Yggy, what's even the point of purchasing a non-"vintage" DAC? Aug 17, 2018 at 3:40 PM

        ^this, as much as i love processor3, it’s such a monsterous 2-box set up (dac+psu) that make me rearrange the whole rack when put it in the chain.

        All good points here. Not trying to make a sweeping claim, just reflecting on price/performance with vintage DACs compared to contemporary designs.

        Contemporary DACs of good quality and above are more accurate while vintage stuff can be more pleasing. Just depends on the goal.

      Monarchy M22B DAC w/ upgraded caps on its way! PCM63K blast from the past. Has anyone here heard one? Will hopefully feed w/ Eitr

      Upgrade my source to a SFD-1 or upgrade my amp to a F5? Regardless, need to sell stuff first. "Patience takes a long time."

        Depends on how much of what I already have sells and how long it takes. Neither the F5 nor SFD-1 come up on the used market very often.

        One is great, the other is SFD.

      Would anyone be interested in detailed content about why certain headphones might make for better mixing or mastering tools than others?

        Sure, it's an underexplored topic here.

        Thanks, added a bit of multi-band tube saturation modeling sub 100hz and in the upper mids to give it some texture... Plus a bit of side-chain compression for punch. Made and mixed in 3 hours with the LFF HE-6

      What headphones make for a solid experimental modding platform that aren't HD6xx or T-X0 at a budget-friendly price range?

        Creative Aurvana Live! might be a possibility.

        +1 the CAL!, the drivers seem to have a lot of potential and the housing isn't the kind you'd feel bad about junking.

        Where I find the title doesn't always reflect the content of the song, I'd have to say that this one does so admirably.

      There hasn't been a Colorado meet since RMAF? Seems like a problem.

      Anyone in SoCal want to trade headphones for a short bit before I move on 5/31? Would love to spend some time with ZMF cans, TH-X00, Paradox

        Unless I can find work with decent enough pay to afford rent and massive student loans (which have been deferred til 6 months after I'm done with my MFA in early May), I'm leaving the state to temporarily live with family. Probably Denver, CO.

        Keeping my fingers crossed on pursuing work with Westone,
        QSC, or something along those lines.

      Earlier I was driving north on the 5 imagining what the silhouette of the mountains would sound like as an FR curve. Proud to be a 'Friend'!
