  1. FS: Magnepan 1.7 speakers MAGGIES

    GLWTS. I really miss my .7's.
  2. Hifiman HE400i Own or heard them?

    I'm a headphone guy out of necessity at the moment but am actually starting to get into it. I've definitely noticed a change in sound since first using the 400i's. With maybe 30 hours on them they sound more open, especially the midrange and need less volume to run them. Bass seems improved too. Of course all this could be in my brain but I'm mostly happy. Could never give up a speaker based system. Enjoy your new cans!

    Well they arrived last Friday so less than a week in transit is good going. The box is absurdly well presented for the price of the headphones. Sound through my Emotiva DC-1. At first I thought hmm dark, warm, dull? But then I recalled how my Magnepans sounded when I first got them so I figured they'll settle down. I've since put about 7 hours on them and whether it's brain tuning or headphone break in I'm really enjoying them. A bargain at $250US. They're also very good at low volume running off my android phone. You can hear the outside noises so it's kind of like having a hifi system on in the background and still able to talk to others or move around. Not something I'd considered when buying them but I can see that being of use. Thanks for the replies.
  4. STAX owners thread

    @snavedivad Love the electrostats I see. What are you using to drive the Quads?

    The DC-1 has been a great little unit with many handy features. Plays everything except DSD but I'm not missing that myself. Reading more reviews of the HE400i there's quite a diversity of opinion. Build quality issues have me a little concerned but most people are positive about the sound.

    I'll be using an Emotiva DC-1. I sold my NAD M51 in preference for the DC-1 but I think my favourite dac is still an old PS Audio DL3 which I sometimes run off DC-1's analogue input. I've read the headphone section of the DC-1 is not bad with a decent amount of current. Only a few minutes into the review but I like his style.

    Thanks Tex. Great to hear that. I saw them on the hifiman website for $249US and figured it's worth a try so bought some.

    Thanks mate. I'll have a read. Now get back to those Eatons and ribbons. The Point Cook disco boogies on.
  9. Hifiman HE400i Own or heard them?

    Thanks Marc. I'll keep that in mind for next time. I posted in general discussion because there are similar posts for gear like speakers which could have gone in the speaker section so figured I should have initially posted in general discussion too.

    I started a thread in the headphone section but it seems that section gets little in the way of passing traffic so..... Hi all. I'm looking into headphones for when I don't want to disturb others with a speaker based system. The HE400i seems to be mostly well regarded so I'd be grateful for any opinions on them. A couple of years ago I had a short listen with the earlier HE400 and recall preferring them to the Sennheiser options. I'm in country Vic so will buy online without listening first. Thanks, Legs11

  12. Apple TV or similar?

    It turns out the only Apple TV that can get ABC iview is the 4th gen version. No idea if it has SBS on demand. You'd think apple would make iview and SBS on demand available on previous models with firmware updates. Apart from the remote I'm guessing there's not much if any difference between 3rd and 4th gen models. Perhaps slightly faster processor?
  13. Apple TV or similar?

    The NBN connection is due at the end of the month so I'll wait until then and give the chromecast one last try. If that doesn't work I'll consider the Fetch mini or Apple TV. Thanks everyone for your input.
  14. Apple TV or similar?

    I have an old Beyonwiz I bought her but she rarely uses it. Much prefers sticking with the programmed times for some reason. Another option may be an entry level NUC with wireless mouse and keyboard but I think the Fetch or Apple TV may be simpler.
  15. Apple TV or similar?

    More useful info from the SNA brains trust. Much appreciated. Can I buy Fetch outright and not have to use any of the Fetch subscriber add ons? Is You Tube available? Some sources say it is but it's not listed on the Fetch website. It's strange they don't have a list of available channels and apps. Apart from their own subscriber content that is. edit- You tube is listed on the Fetch website.
