networkn: Thanks for the heads up! The upto 50% off is a little misleading since nothing in the DACs/Amps is near 50% :)
Are you looking at anything or see anything I should consider?
networkn: Just got an email from Soundearphones about their Black Friday sale.
30% off w/ coupon code: BLACKFRIDAY
For now seems to be limited to the following items:
I have just discovered a friend of mine is coming back from the US so he will be able to save me on freight. I am SO tempted to buy the HE400's and people rave about the Burson Amps, but I am torn, the Schiit Lyr also appeals.
networkn: Yup. I was looking at the LYR but I was hoping for a Dac Integrated as well, and my reading indicates a solid state might suit me better.
networkn: Heh I had a feeling when I was originally looking for my HD650's. I really would prefer a 1 box solution and to stay under 500USD. I would really like something that would work with my PC and with my Home Theatre Amp, and I am less concerned about portability.
networkn: I guess whilst I think portability has some pluses, the only portable scenario would be my iPod or GS3, and I can't see me using the HD650's for that, since I have the Copper Pro Monster IEM's which are just insane. Plus on a bus or some other mobile place, background noise etc and poor source are more likely a problem.
networkn: Also when I am mobile, I tend to be concerned about sound leakage out of consideration to others, and the 650's are pretty leaky being open.
What app do you use to play music on the S3? Do you use anything to enhance the sound?
