Happy new owners.

A certain user, "MrLA," who has owned a lot of different DACs had this to say about the Paradisea:

"previous dacs i had tried while paradisea was in my position were: bel canto dac2, benchmark dac1, lavry da10 and the venerable audio research dac5. all were great dacs...one i liked least among them was benchmark dac1, it was so analytical that it became a little edgy at times. from what i could remember, bel canto dac2 and paradisea excelled in drawing you into listening to music. if you want accuracy, as i perceived it, lavry dac10 and audio research dac5(this is a dac from '96) are it. neutral is the word. if u want a dac to seduce get a paradisea or bel canto dac2."

...

He also had a Constantine which he said he liked as much as the Paradisea but for different reasons (more detailed).

Have fun with it and post some thoughts.

Erm... yeah.

I own one too many headphones now, hopefully I can clear out the Denon to one of yous after the loan.

Out of curiosity, how many of us have owned this damned headphone now?

I have. I quite liked it as a "sounds good with just about everything can" ... but the RS1's got all the head time so sold it for what I payed for it.

Win win.

One of the main reasons I wanted it. I needed a can that fit these req's:

- < $200
- Open
- Comfortable
- All-arounder
- Durable (as in I don't have to cradle it every time I touch it *cough JVC cough*)

I've heard like three different HD600's now, but none of them on my amp (I enjoyed them each time though). Let's see if that Singlepower + Sennheiser magic is as good as Jacob and many others have hinted at.

Long time no see, my compatriots.

Aura, I've grown quite fond of my HD600, by far the most versatile cans I've owned (not saying too much). They sound great with my VHP-2, I can't even begin to imaging how good they would be with your Singlepower. Only one way to find out, try them out and let us know.

Hey trig, good to see you back. Hopefully you'll get more active again.

What's up Nam. I really haven't haven't had much time this summer with my internship and all, I tried to lurk around once in a while. But now that school's back in session I should have more time.

My livewires should be here in a couple of weeks. Part of me wanted to get the triple.fi so S1rrah and I could do a quick trade, but a bigger part of me wanted custom fit IEMs.

That's probably for the best, Sirrah sold his SE530s to my buddy Mike a few weeks back.

Trigger, what's up dude? Glad to see you back .

The 580 will definitely see some time with the main rig, but it's primary purpose will be for the pc (and unfortunately straight from the AV710 for the time being). I'm thinking of getting into DIY, maybe starting with a CMOY and ultimately moving up to a Starving Student or Millet for the pc so the 580 won't have to go underpowered for too long.

I certainly am not looking to replace the main rig - I'd have to spend another $2,000 to get close O_o.
