Week-long cold has got my system sounding like tinny, shouty garbage. Getting healthy will be a solid system upgrade. Patience... May 16, 2022 at 8:54 PM

      Removing the metal grills on HD 800 was a good move! Similar improvements my previously owned orthos many moons ago. More "air" and space.

        It's just the metal protection grill that I removed. It doesn't do anything besides protect from fingers and things stabbing the driver. I'll post a pic later.

        Oh, got it. The Reddit pic has a section of the baffles circled in red and it looks to be replaced with fiberglass. Agree removing the outer driver protector grill is an improvement. Running them that way on both modded HD800 & BP800.

        I realized that photo was confusing as hell after the fact. Lol.

      Brain adjusted to Yiggy LIM in about 30 min. Now 'one more song' syndrome is in full swing and I need to freaking sleep. Help.

      Bottlehead BeePre2 build is commencing. Already broke a 4pin socket, but other than that I'm off to a good start. Lol.

      Finding myself on a Porcupine Tree binge again. No complaints. It's a good place to be.

        Regardless, I'll for sure be hyped when the entire album comes out and give it many listens before deciding. Lol.

        New Porcupine Tree? Will have to check it out. I think my favorite album is Fear of a Blank Planet, but not really familiar with their stuff prior to In Absentia. Maybe due to my Gavin Harrison bias..

      HD 800 almost went for sale the day I got em, but after screwing with EQ I don't want to let them go. Shoot. And Yay.

        At my first meet, the HD-800 was the only thing that blew me away—and that was on one of the worst expensive set ups for it. Instead, I bought the only thing that *moved* me at that meet: the HD-600.

        Ha! I'm using Bifrost 2 and Bottlehead Mainline with 10uf Vcap ODAM caps.

        I switched over to Roon with PI2aes so I could use the parametric eq and now am stuck with Roon. Besides a nice eq, moreso that it's a pleasure to use. Lol.

        For sure Claritas, with no EQ my HD 650KISS aren't going anywhere.
