      Man, reading the "What is balanced" and "/isolation Discussion" just saved me money. Such a great SNR, but what to do about THD+N?

      Debating the X-LS Encore Kit. Anyone have experience with the kit? The Wharfedale Diamond 225 seems within reach.

      Had a little buzz in a tubes and remembered what my elders have told me. "Just clean them" half an hour and some dexoit later. Bliss!

      Thinking about the CMX-2 or a ANC AC purifier. Any thoughts on one vs the other for a bifrost and valhalla 2?

        I don't have experience with either, just wanted to say that I hope you don't have audible power problems. I once lived in a place with terrible power and it was a lot of work to achieve tolerable sound. I found a brickwall conditioner/surge protector most helpful but YMMV.

        Are you trying to fix anything in particular? CMX-2 great for DC offset.

        Slight buzz when when I touch the volume knob. Not sure if it can be fixed by either.

        Much more personal than other forums. While you can enjoy measurements they may not always be the right one or the whole picture. While we can figure out numbers and put them on a graph, our ears do not work the same way. We listen to multiple sounds and different frequencies.

        Take a look at the Topping d70 review on the home page.

        Yeah I get that @purrin has opinions about things. I completely agree with him that SINAD is an overly-reductive metric if used exclusively.

      I'll take honest impressions over "advertising" any day.

      I used to think a pair of Grado sr80e was above my price range. Now I am looking to snag a pair of Verite Closed

        Yes, they once seemed like end game to me. So many details came out of the music from my ipod. They still are awesome sounding, now I am looking for over ears, big pads, and tubes.

        I am not going to get them anytime soon. Just that I don't think they are over priced. I get most of my gear used to save a few bucks. The Verite just seems like a nice headphone to work up to. Half the fun for me is the journey.

      Just joined, and I love my OTL amp. Tubes rule!

        It is not only about the tubes, but when the amp is well made and has good PSU, capacitors etc.

        Ended up getting a Valhalla 2. Just about perfect for my Sennheiser 6xx. Interested to hear some others in the new future.
