Some of you have already liked the What did you buy Today threath that I bought the Feliks Euforia, thanks for that.
The pictures are also the same from the threath.
I took a closer look at it and can only say that the craftsmanship is nothing to write home about.
What I would have liked is a marking on the volume pot towards the front so that I can see where it is when I’m lazing in my armchair and enjoying music.
The look is okay for me, I can live with it.
From a distance, it also looks striking with the orange.
Unfortunately I can’t say exactly how good they are.
When I bought the Euforia, I could choose between no tube, just the device, Psvane Silver with an extra charge of about $100/100€ or Psvane Gold with an extra charge of $200/200€.
Of course, you always want to have the good stuff, so you bought the Psvane Gold.
The only advantage is that if you already have tubes, it is very nice of Feliks to give you the choice.
Someone who knows a lot about tubes could possibly turn down Psvane Gold for the 200$ tubes and find better tubes for the money.
In my case, I have to say I’m not that familiar with tubes.
Which dealers could certainly take advantage of.
You have to be careful not to buy tubes that are too cheap, because some of them are sold in the name of good manufacturers and actually come from China.
Especially with the 6AS7G tubes, and Ebay is also a good place to buy defective ones at a devilish price.
In my case I was lucky and found a dealer in my country who is serious and sells decent quality at an acceptable price and the service is right.I had the experience when I recently bought the Little Dot 1+,after that I had tasted blood.
The first good 20 hours are through, I let it run for 2-4 hours, let it cool down again and listen to it.
Felkis recommends not to let the amplifier run for 3 days, but always in breaks during burn-in a maximum of 8 hours, then you should let it cool down.
The first 1-4 hours you can really forget about listening to music.
Why do you let it run?
Especially at the beginning where the euphoria is still playing, you think, "old man, I’ve just left so much money over the counter, what’s the point?
And yes, it accompanies you, I’ll explain why later.
The Denon D2000 mod and the Fostex mod were the headphones that played.
Because of the burn in you could still hear the slight distortion, I’m sure I’ll check again if that disappeared after the burn in.
Both were a good step above in terms of sound, as far as I could hear.
Especially the Denon D2000 mod where I thought it would brighten up everything.
But the Denon D2000 mod is even better, with much more flesh, attack and bite.
There were also areas in the music where I never thought it was a bass.
At first I thought, what’s he going to do, it was really a bass.
So I can understand that the Sennheiser, Focal, Meze were highly praised by the testers.
Because the resolution is even better, and not just in a very short time when it’s in the middle of a burn-in.
And I think that’s where more dynamic headphones come into play.
I was most curious to see how the Audeze Lcd2c would perform.
And I have expectations of it because it’s one of the best headphones for me personally as a planar headphone. It’s simply the best I’ve heard in its price range and except for the fact that it’s not its field in the hip hop category, it does a lot right and is okay for me.
Z Rewiev told the Feliks Elise don’t do it, don’t put Planar headphones in there.
That was my thought when I tried to listen to it.
He sounded much too timid, no caressing of the guitar or harps, the piano totally pale without power and joy of playing.
The voices on the other hand oh wow right at the front of the mic.every now and then a little tickle and sign of life that the sun is rising.
Earlier I wrote that I wouldn’t listen to the first few hours because the disappointment might already be there, which was also my impression over the whole weekend. I was torn back and forth and thought that the price was a bit much for a pair of headphones that would be even better if the rest didn’t fit.
But suddenly something happened from one minute to the next.It was around 19-20 burns per hour.
I stopped the playback, opened the window and switched from 32/96 to 512 Dsd in Audirvana to see the difference.
And yes, something happened, suddenly the Lcd2c became meatier, which I had been missing all along.
My thoughts were not to say that the little Polish girl is a resolution-horny.
Blu Cantrell - Unhappy played because the bass response is extremely great.
And the voice is great and the backdrop is also a song that fits well.
Then I switched back to 32/96, closed the window, played and then it started and I thought what is it now?
I don’t know, have I exorcised the witch or is the Polish bitchy went through my head.
Suddenly it was no longer so bloodless in the bass and banged what went to the Lcd 2 c borders, in the details it still works to improve.
The voices became more powerful and voluminous, the piano suddenly came to life, the delicate caress of the Audeze came to the fore.
Unfortunately I didn’t have the time to describe and remember the setting, because I have school this week and had to catch the train.
So in the end it really seems to have something to do with the burn-in, I thought on the train.
And the tubes probably need to burn in a bit more.
The instructions said something about 30-50 hours of voodoo, so it probably won’t be any.
I’m curious and of course looking forward to Friday again logically, because I want to hear more from the Audeze.
What is my interim balance?
At first glance there is nothing bad to say, of course the burn in is annoying.
The only thing that would be good is if Feliks would burn it in beforehand.
Questyle does it before he leaves the company, for example.
The whole weekend was really growing through, and torn.
And I thought maybe the tubes are too flat from the tuning?
Sure you look again for 6as7g tubes, where the market is a bit strange in that respect.
And makes you doubt if I made the right purchase?
My mind tells me to give the Pollish-girl a little more time, maybe she’s just shy before she casts her spell on you.
That’s all I can say for now.I’m not disappointed but not exactly full of joy either.And follow your mind.Even if 30-50h or more can be really long.
The photo was taken by chance when taking the picture with the light switched off and the light from the keyboard shining over to the side.
