  1. My Dragonfly arrived yesterday and I was using it last night. I'm pretty impressed so far. I have been using Monster Inspiration headphones which I like for the most part, however they seemed to require the noise cancelling feature engaged for a little boost of clarity. With the DF they now sound much clearer and detailed even in unpowered mode. Going to use it over the weekend and play through a variety of music.
  2. Would very much like to hear them. I wasn't particularly keen on the early models, sounds like these have addressed I the issues I had.
  3. Good for you. I am very very curious. On paper they seem to be the ticket but I have read nothing about them from owners. I hope they are great.
  4. Thanks for the response. I took the first step forward this week by ordering a Dragonfly Red amp/DAC. I'll see how that works with my Monster Inspirations and then I'll source a pair of Meze Noir 99's.
  5. Thank you kindly. I had toyed with the idea of upgrading my headphones, but after reading numerous things I thought I would take the plunge and go this route first. In the end an upgrade may be put on the back burner.
  6. I have been kicking around the idea of taking my headphone listening a bit more seriously. Something I primarily used to do outside while BBQing, or listening to tunes later at night when my wife had fallen asleep. My den (adjacent to the living room), has been functional for a while now and I have the computer on a new desk. Had briefly thought about near-field speakers but am too close to my wife watching TV. Headphones got a second look. There seems to be a thousand different headphone amp/DAC combos out there but I decided on a Dragonfly Red for my first foray into this sort of thing. Pulled the pin and ordered one last night. Looking forward to hearing what sort of difference it will make. Anyone used/own one? 51iLA9IJx+L._AC_SY355_.jfif
  7. I will read this. I wasn't aware of it until your post.
  8. Or perhaps a different sub. Your mains are pretty efficient and IMO that Marantz should provide more than enough juice. I know metal guys like to shake the room. Crossover might be a place to start which wouldn't cost you a nickel. If that doesn't do the trick, snagging a pair of used mono blocks to run through the system in stereo mode might be just the ticket.

    Happy New Year

    A new year with new opportunities. Have a healthy and happy one.
  10. Pretty crazy. This guy must be single for sure.
  11. IMO the RB 61 II in the general scheme of things. Best sound for the buck I have ever come across. With a few more bucks I would snap up a P17 in a New York minute. I hope to see a return of the Palladium series. 21rst century Klipsch and absolutely beautiful.
  12. Nice to have that sorted. Sounds like you need more difficulties like a hole in the head.
  13. A friend of mine has a Primaluna driving his ProAcs. The thing (and his entire system), sounds fantastic.
  14. " The desire for ownership and control over content is often a driving factor for those who hang onto their music players" Exactly. I prefer to have my own rather than rent digital music.
  15. Do you not have big Boxing Day sales in the states?
  16. Has anyone had experience with these headphones? They look fantastic and I have been reading extremely good reviews. I'm quite content with my current home rig but have decided to acquire a nice high end pair of headphones in 2020, something I have never owned. These might be the ticket. I'm kicking around the choice between the Klipsch HP-3 and the Meze 99 Classics ( which also feature wood ear cups).
  17. Wow, it's been a year already. We are now getting ready for the season. We have to order most of our supplies from the south, doing some decorating tomorrow and will throw on my second favourite ( by a whisker) album.
  18. I think you would need to be a real movie buff. I am sliding into fogey-hood myself and find very few movies worth watching anymore. I seem to be part of the minority that doesn't like comic book movies or preachy "woke" films.
  19. We are debating the same thing, however maintaining the centre channel. For the amount of rear channel sound vs the space used for rear speakers I'm really not sure it worth it anymore. Years ago I was very happy running the TV sound through a stereo system. Since the vanishing of movie stores we seem to watch very few of them anymore, even cancelled Netflix a couple weeks ago.
