New headphones announced. Necessary 4+ pages of useless posts on how much they cost. Ugh. Next will come the 4+ pages of speculation. Oct 4, 2018

        Nothing further on Head-Fi since my last post in the Rag thread here.

        They never update anything. All the same, all the time. Just ask them. They'll tell ya.

      HE-5's arrived. No cracks on the wood ring.

      Just got a message from DHL saying my HE-5 is being delivered this Thursday. FYI for anyone else that ordered on Black Friday.

        Any friends here want it? I'll mail it if you'll pay shipping. It will be expensive to mail (big and heavy).

        I did too, but will it be the HE-5, or the answering machine amp that no one wants.

        Mojo 2 amp is fine for HE-5. Saga / Vidar is better.

        Schiit: No, that's stupid and would double the cost

        Some idiot: Well, in my honest opinion, here's how you could do that thing and I think people would pay...

      Stupid question... Is there any advantage to RCA -> BNC over an RCA -> RCA cable? Eitr feeding Gungnir Multibit. Thanks.

        if your Gungnir Multibit's coax is used by one source like a cd player, you can use the RCA --> BNC adapter to plug the Eitr into your Gungnir Multibit's BNC input. Monoprice makes a $0.99 adapter

        I think that the purist point of view is that digital coax RCA cables are all wrong, because the cable may be right, but the connector is never the correct impedance. BNC, on the other hand, is purpose-designed. Adapters are not going to right the wrong.

        Correct me if that is all tosh! I have never had the need/opportunity to use the "right" digital cable/terminations.

        Generally, though, even for analogue cables, I regard RCA as an unfortunate accident of history which audio got stuck with. Of course, in practice... I just shut up and use them!

      Why am I suddenly limited to 140 characters on profile posts. This is tyranny!

        You just noticed? Did you consult Count Count while counting the character count? Besides, SBAF is not a tyranny. No tyrants are present here...

      There is a real weariness to having three headphones out and swapping between them.

        HD650, Blackwoods, and Slants. Trying to figure out which to keep between the Blackwoods and Slants. But I get quickly exhausted going back and forth between any components, listening to gear instead of music. I'm glad I have you guys to do all the heavy lifting for me. =)

        When does your new amp arrive??

        Ah Blackwoods are nice, very unique sound with all that subbass. I sold them to take a flier on the Eikon, I hope I don't regret it, but I miss them. Never heard the slants I'm jealous.

        Meeting with the guy in person at a smaller meet next weekend. He's letting me listen before we seal the deal, which is amazing. I have a hard time imagining a scenario where I don't walk out with the Zana
