    These Dan Clark (NE "Mr. Speakers") Voce Electrostatic headphones are brand new. They list for over $3000 and I'm selling them at half price because I can't use them with my current equipment. The headphones are excellent audio quality, easily in the same ballpark, sound-wise as the SR-009S and need to be paired with any Stax Style "Pro-Spec" Electrostatic energizer/amplifier (not included). Compatible energizer/amplifiers include any Stax model, any HiFiMan electrostatic energizer, Stax compatible energizers made by MSB, iFI, Woo Audio, the LTA Z10E, etc. Features: 88mm drivers for bass that reaches below 10Hz and provides a very wide and large soundstage. Metal stators for enhanced resolution Flexible, microphonic-free round silver-plated copper cable with a solid machined Teflon connector cased in an aluminum housing. Convenient and "clamshell" style zippered, molded plastic storage box. Durable all metal construction at a featherweight 330gr. Fully dust-sealed drivers.

  5. I’m writing the review now. Of course, I have no control over when Chris posts the review.
  6. I look forward to learning on this site!

  7. Well, using a single-point stereo mike is a recording technique that I stumbled upon some years ago. I make all of my recordings using a single point mike. Mine is an Avantone CK-40 and is a large capsule (one inch) gold-sputtered Mylar diaphragm FET condenser mike. It is one of the best sounding mikes I’ve ever used; easily besting the extremely expensive and similar Telefunken ELA-M-270. The main differences being that the Telefunken has an etched brass diaphragm and the CK-40 has a modern sputtered Mylar diaphragm and the Telefunken is a tubed mike while the Avantone is FET. Believe me I ha
  8. Well, a month ago I would have said the dCS Vivaldi. But I have something that’s better, now, and much less expensive. Stay tuned, O.K.?
  9. Hmm, the tech guy at Schiit, gave me the year 2017. But I guess anybody can err.
  10. It’s the OS version, not the hardware. If your Windows machine runs Win10, Unison USB will work fine. I have a Toshiba Celeron based laptop from about 2010. With Win7. The new Yiggy USB won’t work and no driver download would make it work. But when I recently upgraded it to Win10, Slow as that computer now is, the Yiggy now works fine with it.
  11. Well, I didn’t buy it, if that’s what you’re getting at 🥴. It belongs to a friend who hasn’t retrieved it. It was in my personal (older) Yggy setup, so I simply swapped the already connected cables from my Yggy to the review sample. Difference between my own “printer cable” quality USB cable and the AQ Diamond? None that I can detect. But if you wish you could hear one of the “B” S# Yggdrasils, stay tuned. I have a DAC in-house now that is not only significantly cheaper than the Yggy but blows it and literally every other DAC under $20,000 that I’ve ever encountered clear out of the wa
  12. Well, no it doesn’t cut down on cost. The inputs ARE labeled and labels, big or small wouldn’t affect costs one way or another. These labels are just so tiny (not to mention cryptic) that they can’t even be seen, much less read from across the room.
  13. Schiit’s latest Yggdrasil Incarnation By George Graves Schiit’s premier Digital to Analog Converter (DAC), the Yggdrasil (Yggy), has been in their lineup since 2017. In that time, it has undergone a number of revisions, but has not had a facelift. In fact without a serial number reference, it is simply not possible to tell which revision you have by looking at the unit. This latest model is no exception. This latest Yggy includes several upgrades which purports to improve performance significantly over earlier incarnations of this DAC. Concurren
  14. Firedog, my friend, I’ve claimed nothing. How could I, I’ve no experience with NCore amps. I merely warned the Newbie OP to play it safe. And aren’t most NCore amps power amps? OP needs both power amp and preamp.
