I might look into the diode upgrade. Can that be done by myself?
Yes! This is no problem! I use the small diodes! Looking and sounding great!

I just heard the Xs yesterday and after owing the originals, yes they sound amazing. Especially in vocals at least in my demo. I did a side by side with DAW and while there are certainly differences, the Sabrina is one heck of a speaker....

Hi Ronin are you able to elaborate a little more on the Sabrina X vs DAW comparison. Currently trying to decide on a used pair of DAWs vs a new Sabrina X.

I imagine especially on the lower end (and therefore imaging and dimensionality of images) the DAWs must be far superior.

So it happend! After a year of struggling with myself, if i should upgrade to the Xs, i get a brandnew pair of Sabrina Xs in carbon.
My 2 year old Sabrinas were Galaxy Gray. I like both colours.
The Xs sounding very good, but i hope they getting better every hour playing my favourite records!

Yes. Congrats, indeed.
I read so many good things about the Sabrina X. Makes me wonder if they would play well with my 25wpc of Pass Labs Class A power?
