I'm currently working on an open back mod for my TH-X00. It's looking good so far. https://imgur.com/a/xNUhdk8 Jul 7, 2020

        As for tuning, I just might hyu for some different material ideas once I listen to them. I've got to get some glue to attach the black part of the grill to the surround and then the surround to the cup. Once it's good and dry I'll swap the cups and give them some ear time.

        They are now complete, and I'm digging the hell out of them. I realize I'm in the honeymoon phase of course, but so far so damn good. https://i.imgur.com/Sct1qIK.jpg

      I got a set of Hyla Sarda IEMs in yesterday and they are fantastic. I'm surprised Hyla doesn't get more love.

        @Jinxy245 Probably not, I'm horrible with that stuff. Like I know in my head what I think of them, but when I try to put that into words it's not pretty, lol.

      Got an Emotiva Stealth DC-1 DAC in and paired it with my Monolith THX AAA 887. Fantastic combo with everything I've thrown at it so far.

      Got my Monolith THX AAA 887 amp in a little over a week ago and it's impressive. For the money it's amazing.

        I didn't find it sterile at all. Very engaging sound imo, real dark background with my IEMs as well. Current chain is PC optical out -> Emotiva XDA-2 XLR out -> 887.

      Got an Emotiva XDA-2 DAC in today, sounds fantastic. Great wide stage, nice detail.

        The XDA-2 is a great value on the used market. It is a very laid back dac that doesnt lose detail and as you mentioned it has great soundstage. It paired with the ZMF Pendant has been one of my favorite combos.

        Yeah, I think it was a steal at $200. I've got it paired with an Emotiva A-100 with the jumper pins in. It's the perfect combo for my planars.

        But then, I've mostly missed Zeos too. Wasn't it an operating system? Maybe that was Beos?

        Mine was the PS series, never heard the DA ones. My fond memory of that speaker was playing Underworld Born Slippy vinyl single. This was way before Underworld become popular when born slippy included in the trainspotting soundtrack.
