    Re: Open Or Closed Headphones?

    Randy, I was talking (emailing) with Mike about a week ago and he said Focal has discontinued the Arche. I'd be more interested in HeadAmp but I've read some negative stuff about customer service...

    My most sincere and heartfelt sympathy. When we lost our first Jack Russell Terrier to cancer it left a gaping hole in my soul. It got better as the months and years went on but it still has not...

    Re: Open Or Closed Headphones?

    Boy, I dunno...It still sounds like I'd be better served in my application by closed phones. I discussed it again with my wife and she doesn't want to be able to hear music leaking out of headphones....

    Re: Posting Prices Publicly

    As Mike knows, I'll be returning in a few months for a good, high quality, set of headphones and a top notch HP amp. It'll be sans the sticker shock as I'm much better educated than a year or two...

    Re: Posting Prices Publicly

    I truly sympathize with Mike. Why? Because he had to deal with me while I put in a full year of research and selecting components for my new high end audio system.

    I had been out of the high end...

    One of my all time favorite singer song writers. The album with "Don Quixote," "Christian Island," and "Second Cup Of Coffee," is outstanding.

    Recently been listening to a lot of Ella and Count...

    Re: Leaving Components On Continuously

    I shut the amp off using the push button switch on the front of the amp. There are two power supplies for the MSB Discrete DAC and I shut them both down (also push button switches) after every use....

    Leaving Components On Continuously

    I've been turning my audio components off when not in use. I think I read where many audiophiles leave all components on almost 100% of the time. I'm considering leaving my Pass Labs int 250 amp and...

    Re: Abyss vs Focal Utopia

    vortrex, could you be a little more specific? What is it that the Abyss has and the Focal doesn't and vice versa? I appreciate your post.

    Re: Boulder v Gryphon

    I think they also used to refer to it as "accuracy." Or, "colored" vs "uncolored." Only problem using those terms is I'm showing my age.

    Re: Open Or Closed Headphones?

    Sounds like I'd be happier with the sound of open headphones. Hopefully, they won't disturb the wife much. She usually has the TV on while she's reading. Hopefully, the TV will mask the sound of the...

    Re: Klipschorns

    Not a darn thing wrong with the Luxman L590axII. Great integrated amp. Check out the Pass Labs INT 60 or INT 25 while you're at it. The INT 60 is a 60 wpc amp that operates Class A up to 30 wpc. I...
