Joel, I think you should try an aikedo. You might be suprised by the 'cheap' amp... A MOSFET max is very nice with grados as well.

Point taken.

The Aikedo looks very interesting.

BTW ... haven't heard back from Ray regarding the umbilical specs ...

I'm not sure ... but it seems that the umbilical is hardwired to the power supply end of the Raptor. Doesn't seem like a smart thing to do unless said amp builder wanted to lock folks in to using the stock umbilical ... but it *does* have a threaded gasket ... despite it's seeming inability to detach ... which seems to indicate it's removable.

I'll call him Monday to get the low down on it.

no hurry. I don't have a computer to order parts or track orders now anyway... And I'm moving next month. I'll have a larger office and a proper workbench

What part of your rig is botched Jacob?

Sorry about the poor string of events, hopefully the move will reset things for you .

Fuzzy video all the way through post to windows. I got into safe mode once and did a restore, but now I can't even get to windows. Thread is in the nvidia cards section because first thought was fubared card. I just don't have a second rig to help me diagnos so it's slow and frustrating. Other possibilities would be mobo and I'm going to try and see if I get clean video on a post wo harddrives. I'm not too hopeful about that though.

The good news is that my wife decided she wants a desktop instead of a laptop and where were moving in a month and a half has room for her to have a mice desk/work area. So in the future this shouldn't happen.

It might still happen as never components have different sockets and at the end only PSU and HDD might be compatible with your older PC. Also I would buy a new case, put your old components in, wrap it as a gift for your wife and buy a new desktop for yourself.

The reason I no longer have two desktops I'd because my wife got tired of "hand me downs" as she called all her computer upgrades. Which I don't understand. She always had a faster rig than she needed... And it got regular updates...

Just a few pics of the Senn, no need to bombard bandwidth with a headphone we've all seen a million times already.








This pair does seem to sound a little different than my 580 as I remember it; headstage seems quite a bit more 3D, particularly with depth where the instrumentation feels more in front of me. The imaging is allowing me to almost see where the different lines are coming from. I dunno, maybe I'm just more in-tune with imaging and 3D representation because of my speakers, but I do not remember these qualities being as noticeable with the other Senn. Bass might be a tad better, sounds pretty much identical in mids and treble from my recollection.

I will say that the Oehlbach cable I'm using is about as ideal for my setup as I'll find. The build is similar to the HD650 cable, but even thicker, heavier, and with a better termination that looks like a Neutrik but rebranded with Oehlbach's name. The entire cable is black including the end connectors, so it keeps a low profile which I really like (as opposed to some of the other cable brands which go way overboard in the looks category imo). I've no idea where one would find this exact cable (I looked for it on Oehlbach's site), but I've heard it's not terribly expensive so I'd say it is worth looking into.

I'm considering getting some HD650's on behalf of my Stello amp sale proceeds.

I like the 650's more so than the 600's, personally. I know folks say the former are "darker" and all ... but I found them to be more enjoyable all around ... more detailed ... speedier ... but then again ... that's just from a Meet(tm) environment and all ...

If I can find some for sub 300ish, I'll probably get 'em.

I need a compliment to my GS1000's ... and it's either gonna be another set of RS1's (truly, I miss them) or the HD650's ...

Only the shadow knows.
