Hi Fayne, is there any difference between Linsoul HC 08 and the stock cable? Is it worth to upgrade cable? Does it sound better?
I’m not sure about sound quality, I didn’t bother using the stock cable at all. My primary reason for the Linsoul was balanced connectivity. I will say that the HC-08 is much more soft and supple. I wouldn’t say it is a required upgrade, but I’m happy with it. The Tripowin C8 and Zonnie are also good options for similar reasons.

Thank Fayne, i am considering about upgrading cable for my earphones, particularly the FDX1, but i do not know how much better it is, or expensive cables are just a gimmick

What tube is that? Jan Philips?
Yeah. JJ and EH are generally great in guitar amps, but have no place in any of my head or power amps (for anything other than rectifiers). If I must go new production, I'm all about Tung-Sol and Genalex. The 5670W is one of the better tubes GE produced; rugged, good sounding, long lasting, non-microphonic. The Russian 6Н3П-ДР and 6Н3П-ЕВ are nice, not as good as 5670W, but dang close. I completely skip NOS 6922/6Н23П whenever possible, I find the prices are generally stupid... and I don't like stupid prices when I've a habit of buying lots of 50-200 tubes. :)

Yes I agree the prices are ridiculous. I was luckily to buy two of the russian tubes on black friday for $40! They do sound great though, especially with the highs

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...

Best imaging and soundstage headphones for positioning and immersion?
I was looking at He4XX and K7XX mainly, but I was going to use these mostly for gaming and some music, which means overall imaging is the most important, but I also wouldn't want a headphone that's too boring. Thank you for any help. Edit: My previous headphones were Sennheiser G4ME One's, I'd want comparable or better performance.

R7DX with the Aliexpress/eBay Hifiman "upgraded" headband. Headband is flimsy, and I will need to add some epoxy to reinforce how the earcup holders attach. Definitely improves these headphones...

Pc38x mic volume low
Is the low volume inherent to this headsdset? I'm maxing out my mic volume sliders and people are still complaining I'm barely audible...
