post #37091 of 37404
well I just bought my first class a amp. ifi ican se, got it used on headfi for $150 from a reputable seller. not bad for a originally $400 amp. will be fun to test it on some stuff, see if it actually is much better than fulla 2 on monolith m1060, etc.

just have to figure out a power adapter for europe someday... they make one. but it costs 50 bucks from ifi... sigh.

I think all planar headphones are actually amazing if we just had 5+ watts into them. even the volume knob is only at like 9am, I am reading there is much more slam involved. but I don't know, you guys said I was wrong on this before, but I dunno I have read about others saying it to.

side note - don't reply to this, I just need to go to head fi meet someday once and for all and just listen. :DDD

No. The Jot is a piece of crap. It is the only schiit amplifier I have heard that actually shifts the tone of the music. It has some serious odd order distortion.

As you can see, most part are same from old Λ. Good to have spare parts available. Funny idea to put grey/brown band from old lambdas...it should fit.
Detail is better, but bass is firmer- feels less louder. It´s not fair comparison to bass fart 207´s, but you get idea. Original 207 is bass shy, but not anymore after that mod. L300 bass is bit less than modded 207, maybe because it´s tighter. Yeah like low Qts vs high Qts woofer.
I must admit details are bit more, without being annoying.
So for trance, techno i´ll use modded 207, and everything else (jazz, 80´s...) the L300.
L300 sound feels bit more "comfortable" like granturismo, but you get not sport ride sense, like with hothatch (207).
Also limousine is ok for long trips, where hothatch can make you tired sooner

007 is comfort king- limousine, you don´t feel wearing it. Also treble are even less sharp, there is a cloth above drivers.
L300 has just a thin plastic mesh. Cloth on 207 is thickest, sharp treble.
Bass fart mod i see is impossible to do on L.
With L300 i do not have wear problem, unless your ears protrude like 400

SR-L it is a step evolution, but not revolution.
All are secondhand (with new parts), so YMMV.

I dont have a preference when it comes to the seller. As long as they are reliable.
I would prefer the bass have more of an impact than my 668s do
Id say my sensitivity to sibilance is moderate.....i dont like hissing sounds but i can deal with a bit of it
My goal is to use these headphones for everything, im looking for something that I wont have to upgrade for a while.

Hope this helps. Thanks!


I dont mean to repost but does anyone else have any other suggestions on a headphone and dac amp? $300 budget.

I think version 2 is about to come out, I saw it on head-fi front page a few days ago, maybe get those instead? The video on it said they were better in every way then the original M100s

I bought my first pair of Grados 17 years ago and have been, to some degree, obsessed with audio ever since. Over the last year or so I've kind of just stopped caring about it. Yeah, I can easily hear that my Lyr 2 is way better than my Magni 2, but the Magni takes up less space and sounds good enough. If I have a quiet moment to swap out my closed backs for my swanky open cans, I simply can't be bothered to swap them around. At work I've started plugging my custom iems directly into my laptop headphone jack. I rearranged my living room but haven't bothered to re-run room correction on my ht setup. I want to care but just don't... It's really strange. sigh.
