  1. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    I just got shipping notification yesterday.
  2. Got the HD6XX in from Massdrop. I will be pretty much only using it with my computer and wanted to give it a shot without buying an amp and dac. Definitely lacking the punch I was expecting. Ordered a Schiit Magni 3 and Modi 2. Excited to hear what these sound like when they're properly powered.
  3. First Sianvar, now this? Christmas came early this year.

  5. Thanks for the input guys. I'll be on the lookout for one of the original presses then.
  6. Out of curiosity, does anyone know how the original presses from 07-08 compare to the current presses? I think the old ones are 45rpm, while the new ones are 33rpm. Just wondering if the old ones sound better.
  7. Story of the year - page avenue?

    I finally gave this a spin. I'm going to have the unpopular opinion, but I think it sounds pretty good. Yes, like others have said, it is quiet... so turn it up. I did an A/B comparison against the 320kbps mp3 off my ipod, and this doesn't sound as compressed. Doesn't sound flat in my opinion either. Should this sound better than an mp3? Of course. However, I ran the same test with Brand New's Science Fiction, and I can't say the same. I'd say the mp3 sounded better, if only by the slightest of margins. So take this information as you will.
  8. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    Decided to do an A/B comparison of the record vs the mp3 download on my iPod. I have both running through my mixer, and would switch back and forth between the two with the cross fader. The mp3's highs are brighter than the record (the cymbals are rolled off), and the record overall has a very slight muffled sound compared to the mp3. By no means does the record sound bad (only listened to side A; no surface noise, no pops from what I heard), but if you prefer a brighter sound, the mp3 tracks will appeal more to you. Keep in mind my turntables are Technics 1200 MK2s (from some decade long ago) and I am using a Ortofon 2M Blue. You could probably get more out of the record with a better turntable and needle.
