For anyone interested in seeing GRAS-ish measurements, I've measured some weird stuff like an R10 and Shangri-La Sr: https://ish.squig.link/ May 30, 2024

        (I maintain that MiniDSP EARS are far more useful for IEM measurements than headphone measurements)

        Unfortunately I believe the EARS also isn’t a good fit for IEMs as the canal isn’t really resembling that of a human’s so the measurements are going to be quite off from a much cheaper 711 clone that you can buy for around $70

        Oh nah I agree on that front, upper treble response is non-representative by far. Relative comparisons still being somewhat serviceable aside, I'm just saying those pinnae mean they're even worse for headphones, hah.

      I’ve purposely avoided amps with a lot of tube rolling options but after buying the Electra I’m discovering the deep world of 6SN7 and EL34s

        Good 6SN7 tubes are getting expensive

      The search for a turntable is so much more daunting than digital.

        Used VPI Classic pop up around 2k (sometimes less). Great value for a robust table. The rabbit hole starts with cartridges, arms, preamps, etc. And then DD vs idler vs belt. But VPI classics are well built, supported, and have robust original packaging. Technics also a decent recommendation for more plug and play.

        Thank you all for the reassurance and options! I’ve never heard of the Polytable but that looks like an interesting TT. The Garrard 301 build owned by another member here local to me is a beautiful table that would double as decor, but they do seem a little fussier than I want to deal with right now.

        Why not wait for a BW or CH if you have the money? Or save up a bit more for a ZD.

        I didn't really look at the SS EC ampsfor some reason. I'll do some research! I am pretty interested in a Zana though

        I'm an EC fanboy despite only having heard the ZD SE and 2A3 mk iv but I'm sure the SS amps would serve you well!

      Not expecting any T1 interest so I'm messing with it for now. Slapped on DT770 pads and closed off the cups. I like it more than stock.

      This T1 is kinda warm. Good bit less bright than the HE-5. It's 147XXX so it's late but not as new as the measured ones.

      Hey! I remember you from our PMs on HF. Welcome to SBAF! Sorry you couldn't make it to the meet :(

        Hey! Oh, the meet I couldn't make was a local college meet. I definitely couldn't fit the NYC meet in. If you happen to be in NH in a few weeks for whatever reason, we'll be having another meet!

      Anyone want a OnePlus X invite? I signed up for one but I don't actually want it after thinking about it.

      Anyone know of any HE-5 mods other than Luis'? I just traded a Grado for one.

        I might end up doing that. How much was it?

        You should ask Luis, as always. Price varies depending on if you'd like to change the dreadful stock connectors, and request some other changes like wood colors and all.

        I emailed a few hours ago asking if he still makes them. Glad to know he still does! I'll probably sell off the T1 to fund it.

      Got a cheap T1. Gonna mod the crap out of it to see if I can actually have a Beyer I like.
