  1. I had the MDR-Z1R and they were lovely but just didn’t gel with me. The large pad put some pressure on my jaw and I felt like I had to baby them because they were so lovely. I do think if they fit you can’t go wrong with the sound. Fortunately Bill is liking them now. My keeper can is the Grado PS1000 (non “e” model) and I’ve got beyer dynamic T5 gen 3. I listened to a bunch of cans at minidisc and the T5 isn’t one to jump out and excite you on first listen but they don’t do anything wrong and are non fatiguing for long sessions. Super comfortable and they feel solid and don’t mak
  2. Get your Mrs to buy you the customs for a birthday or somthing, that way you can’t sell them anyway. Besides it’s only a couple of grand, you lose that on gear turn over in a month or two 😉
  3. The Sony MDR-Z1R are excellent for the genres you like, drums are amazing. If you can get bengineer to split his package deal you’d have an awesome pair of cans at a great price they are easy to drive so plenty or options will suit
  4. The OP does make a valid point in that the manufacturer could and should do better for the price. I know it took the fun out of my purchase for a while and had there been an alternative at the price point I would have tried it.
  5. I had the same experience when I first bought it and was on the verge of trying to return it but once I got it connected and the firmware updated Ive had very few problems since From memory I had to do a hard reset and start again Same thing the first day of owning the NAD C388 with BlueOS module but after a painful process of updating all the firmware all was good PS. I feel your pain
  6. Thanks, they are a great little speaker. Concrete sounds interesting. I’m actually planning a concrete build of the Manzanita OB by John Busch over on DIY audio forum. the only problem with DIY is knowing when to stop LOL 😂
  7. All the build details and specs can be found here https://sites.google.com/site/undefinition/bookshelf-speakers/classix-ii Cabinet is built from 18mm MDF with laminate finish. 8.6 kgs per speaker (LS50 8.1 kgs) As described by Paul these are not the most resolving but as a result are easy listening and make ordinary recordings enjoyable. they throw a nice soundstage and can be enjoyed at low volumes but crank them up and they can kick. They do like a bit of power so keep that in mind. 50 watts is fine but they do really come alive with my 150 watt class
  8. Try wearing a pair of industrial earmuffs over the top of these IEMs. I put a pair over the top of my Airbuds the other day and the bass response and isolation was amazing.
  9. Beautiful work Mark. You mustn’t sleep much 👍
  10. Just got C388 with the BluOS module and gotta say it’s very good. great control in the bottom end, excellent detail and imaging. GlWS
  11. They are made from 18mm MDF so pretty solid but yes I did put a brace in there
  12. Crossover is as per the plans and tucked away inside the cabinet. Not neat enough to show pictures ?
  13. Knocked a couple of cabinets together last week and finished a pair of Paul Carmody Classix 2 over the weekend. they had me worried when I first played some sound through them but after a couple of hours they loosened up and started to sound better. A bit of tuning with some stuffing tightened up the bass and had me tapping the feet. It’s been a while since I’ve heard the overnight sensations I built but compared to the Amigas I still have they don’t go as deep or have the same level of detail but they image the midrange very nicely and vocalists appear in the room with y
  14. Further information: Excellent condition in original packaging extremely impressed with the sound but I’m not sure closed cans are for me purchased here recently Photos: PLEASE READ If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will not be approved If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you don't include photographs of the actual item being sold, your ad will not be approved You understand that a reasonable donat
