Yea, I heard that from D3daim, but I still pass along your user name.

It certainly isn't an easy job... we learned that thanks to several other people learning it the hard way and sharing... so I guess I am one of the lucky few
(link to the pic in my gallery)

Nice to see you are still keeping busy though! There is plenty of other components on which we can still strive for that audiophile overkill I know you enjoy...

Is there by any chance a pic of the guts of your favorite headphones buried somewhere in the tons of pages this thread is accumulating?

I like Nichicon. That's what I used for the coupling caps, and in my Millet Max build I used Nichicon ES instead of blackgates.

I have like 4-5 blackgates sitting in my drawer along with like 15 op-amps. I bought bulk then decided to sell my stock of XtremeMusics un-modded because life was just too hectic to spend the time necessary. I still have one card sitting in the closet... haven't decided what I'm going to do with it yet though.


for the power supply cap look for Panasonic FM. It's a great cap for power supplies. That's what's in all my DIY amps.

alright here's a pic of my HD580's with HD600 grills and a custom cable. This is the first version of the cable and I'm currently on 1.5 it looks a little better, but is the same internally.


I've got an idea for a totally new cable that will probably cost more in materials alone than the cans cost, but if it sounds as good in real life as it does in my head (and I'm normally pretty accurate about things like that) then it'll be worth every penny.

There's a couple pairs of my cans hanging on the side of my equipment rack


and a better pic of my equipment rack


I've changed out the OneAC power conditioners for a Monster hts5100MKII. The big OneAC unit now is for my computer speakers and headphone amp connected to my computer

i'm abit afraid to buy nichicon in my country, there are too many nichicon replicas. they're crappy.

i think i'm goin to look for oscon, you have experience on oscon caps? they say oscon is great.

yea i might want to look for panasonic FM series for power supply, i need to know what they call it in japanese (since i'll be ordering from japan)

no experience with oscon here, I've never heard of them. I'm not sure what Panasonic FM series is in Japanese.
