  2. Yes a Medieval torture device is one way to describe how the 1266 ‘phones looks. That and an obscene price to pay for them.
  3. Demoing the Meze Empyrean ‘phones now. Bloody heck ! These are so good too. Now I cannot decide these or the Focal Utopia....... can get a better price on the Meze though......
  4. They do sell Final Audio, but no demo. D8000 available unfortunately. I “could” risk it and blind buy a pair. But I won’t, I’ll see if they can get a demo. set in. I am also curious as to how they fair. The HEDD ‘phones were really, really good. Sound wise excellent, detailed and punchy. The letdown was fit and comfort on my head. I was maxed out on the arm slider length, it was only “just” long enough to allow the ear cups to cover my ears. That then put more pressure on the top of my head. So I passed on them.
  5. After a long demo afternoon at a dealer. I have revised my expectations and budget. Now locked in on the Focal Utopia. Had everything I love about pop, rock music. Not even close TBH and it comprehensively seen off Audeze LCD X, 3 & 4, the HEDD & Stax SR 097 mk2 - against my music taste and what I like sound wise. For example, a guy purchased the LCD 3 while I was in there. He was a strictly jazz, blues guy though, so a customer with a totally different musical taste and all that.
  6. Cheers for that. I’ll keep demoing until I have a pair locked in. Price wise the STAX 007mk2 is looking most promising, it’s the matching energiser unit that can go from $2,000 ‘ish up to about $8,000 that is the issue.
  7. Look around $5,000 either all up or just for the ‘phones ( for that special set). The Final Audio D8000 has peaked my interest too. As in a stereo system, I am fast coming to the conclusion that system matching is just as important with headphones.
  8. I have gotten out of the speakers and electronics game. However I have left a budget for a high end headphones and headphone amp. set up. Had a listen to to Audeze LCD 3 and was blown away on how good they were, I’ll compare them against the STAX SR 007 mk2 soon. Will budget about the same price as the headphone for the headphone amp as well. For nthe LCD 3 it will be the SPL Phonitor xe. For the STAX, perhaps the Stax SRM-007TII. I want a great all round set up, but I do listen to 80’s rock/pop a lot. My source is a NAIM HDX server/player. Reliability
  9. Jeez, look possibly. It’s just that I assume the cost will eat well into any profit is all I am worried about.
  10. Perhaps I went a bit high price wise. If anyone is interested at all, just flick me an offer. I’ll entertain all offers.
  11. Pretty sure these are all built to order, so these are here & now, buy ! Fantastic speaker GLWS.

  13. Further information: No longer into HiFi, so last item to go is my Naim Audio PowerLine cable. The RRP is $1,000, so a great saving on new. In top condition, no nicks. It’s 1.9m long and will make a great little upgrade to ANY system, not just Naim.
