Re: Liquorice Pizza Player

When i rebuilt a 124 for a customer i stuck a 3009 on it to test it. I thought it was quite good, beautifully made. Maybe a bit sweeter than a 301 at the top end, a bit loose in the bass compared to the 301. I find my lenco smoother and tighter all round, lenco was better than both at the top than b...

Re: Headphone amps to build or buy

Little review of the fostex t50rp mk3 after spending some time with them I find these to be very very good for me. I value transparency very highly, the ability to pick an instrument, voice, the triangle in the back of the mix, whatever, and follow it, and be able to instantly switch to something el...

Re: Headphone amps to build or buy

I am currently trying a pair of fostex t50rp mk3 headphones out on the end of tonys hpa
These are rather nice
Reportedly they need a bit of running in but straight out of the box they are pretty enjoyable

Re: Nothing In Particular

I quite like my e30, i run the usb from the tablet into it to stream tidal so no hi res files. I dont have a single hi res anything. Also run the cd player into it. The teeny weeny form factor is a big plus for me because there is not the space for boxes, and it sounds great for the price

Quick question re the heatsinks, the nice curved ones i had bought have been ref...

Re: Headphone amps to build or buy

Done a bit of a/b listening to the b&w p7s and the sennheiser m2s. Both over ear, the senny m2s are the equivalent to the p7s in the respective ranges at the time they were new. Not much between them, the p7s are better to me on rock though (deep purple - child in time) Sennys get abit muddled i...
