  • I'd think the heat cycling probably contributes to loosening internal connections, too.

  • gp4jesus wrote: » Designed to switch/handle 20 amps compared to the above* 15 A. I bought the kit version and built it using a 14 gauge IEC cord. It actually has a relay rated for 30A in it, so that's nice. I will definitely look closer at t…

  • Got my 705's set up and working on the break-in before I make any judgements on the sound. If anyone in Western CO wants a listen, let me know.

  • msg wrote: » Crap, is the amp damaged, or are we talking box damage on the speaker and amp? Those big Parasound amps are unwieldy to handle in shipping. The seller actually went above and beyond in packaging it. I'd hate to see how it would …

  • msg wrote: » OPEN IT! OPEN IT!!! C'MON!!! Ok ok fine Looks like we have a Parasound HCA-2200ii, a Sony UHP-H1, and one LSiM705 (the other one should be here tomorrow). UPS was not kind to the amp or the speaker but thankfully the damage…
  • The brown Santa sleigh brought gifts today:
  • My story is similar to others here. I have a pair for work, I have a pair for travel, I have a pair for when out walking or biking. Those are mostly out of necessity. At home I definitely prefer listening on speakers, but I do really love my HiFiMan…
  • I mostly agree with this... But I'm not sure I agree that everyone will have equipment that causes distortion when presenting ultrasonic frequencies. Also I don't think we can always rely on the fact that the recording engineer will properly "fit" t…
  • I just used the promo code yesterday to get some 705's. They seem to have multiple listings for a pair of the same speakers though, so maybe try another?
  • I need to stop coming to this forum. All it does is make me spend money.
  • I am definitely excited to see what my RTi's sound like with some real power behind them. BTW, didn't mean to step on any toes here, I bought it before I came across this thread...

  • Ok, the Parasound has been paid for. Now I wait... In the mean time, since this beast doesn't have a 12v trigger input, has anyone used one of these? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B888VHM/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A19MRELPGC5OXX&psc=1
