The "what audio equipment did you buy/get today" thread [56k warning!!] - Page 316

post #3151 of 3159
Sold my Fidelio X2's today and ordered a pair of Sennheiser HD600's. Not exactly an upgrade, but should work better for me as I sometimes need to mix stuff.

Not hardware... but I am stoked this showed up in the mail today. So glad they decided to press this recording first. thumb.gif

Oh, well... I'm hopeless! Someone offered me an used O2 + ODAC -combination, the Headnhifi-version in black. My bank account balance actually suggested I should've turned down that offer, but mind said "yes, yes, YES!!!" and this time my mind won. biggrin.gif After I receive the O2, my current amp/DAC (Audioquest DragonFly Black 1.5) will become my traveling buddy which was the original plan anyway.

I'd be interested, as I'm sure others would, in hearing your impressions of your old vs new DACs.

Sure thing, I'll do that after I've actually received the new combo and taken some time to listen to it closely. smile.gif DragonFly is okay too, but I somehow got the feeling that it's not really driving HD600's optimally.

EDIT:

So, I've used my O2 + ODAC combo for some days now. It definitely drives the HD600's better (I'm using high gain, this unit has 1x and 3 x gains) and so the end result is this; more precise, detailed presentation and the bass sounds tighter. In fact, the sound overall sounds.. Well, controlled and no longer harsh. I hope this all makes any sense, can't really find a better way to express it.

I bought a replacement Harmon Kardon reciver, AVR145, I’m gonna pack away the hk3380.

It was found because the 3380 has no digital inputs.
And now I just need to wait on the centre speaker to turn up and I’ll have 5.1 surround again after 10 years

Quick aside,

Why does this thread still say 56k warning? Do you think any one actually still connects using dial-up?
