  1. Hell no! As in: no real issues at all.... Especially if you are using quality bits and pieces, as you've described. Yes, having speakers well matched is ideal. But here in the real world, a bit of Frankenstein-like improvisation to throw together a home theatre system never hurt anyone! And as for your main speaker selection... anything you've listed would be awesome. You can't go wrong with the classics - like VAF, Krix, etc. Go and have a listen to whatever you can and buy something that blows you away. And ENJOY!!
  2. The thing is... rolling pins can cause some very serious cranial trauma...
  3. I had some Sennheiser Momentum wireless for some time... loved the sound quality. But HATED the voice that announced power on/off, and other stuff. Yep, I know this seems like a trivial gripe - but I found it really irritating over time. For some reason, they thought that getting a voice model who speaks in a cockney accent (or thereabouts...) was a good idea. Call me classist if you like, but I want my 'premium' headphones to sound classy in every respect. And that includes when it speaks to me. It was like they recruited someone from one of the poorest areas of Grea
  4. thanks Louis... Really appreciate your taking the time to do that!
  5. Terminated with 2.5mm balanced and 2 pin connector The Eros II cable currently retails for $450 at Minidisc. Apparently an excellent cable upgrade!

  6. Purchased on 5.8.20 Limited edition colour: Soapstone (White and rose gold - usb and audio cables are also white). In perfect condition. Balance of new warranty. (And Bose are excellent with their warranty stuff in my experience.). Printed tax invoice will be included.

  7. Chalk up another vote for Focal Clear!! In fact... I prefer it to the LCD 2 for EDM (which is mostly what I listen to). LCD 2 just sounds too dark (veiled) to me. I was surprised to discover how much personal preferences for tonal qualities can effect the impressions I have of headphones. (Yep, I know... duh!) My audition process involved buying some second hand pairs to try out at home. I was gobsmacked when I first put on the LCD 2's... I was expecting so much.... but I instantly knew they weren't the ones I was looking for. I was naively expecting that I
  8. Nice deal. And George is a suburb guy to deal with. (I bought some ATC's off of him earlier this year... A life changing experience 😀 ) Cannot go wrong here.
  9. You will definitely get an audio upgrade. There is a big jump in sound quality from the entry level AVR's and the mid and high ends of the ranges. As someone suggested - you could easily buy a second hand Denon from a few years back for a similar audio upgrade and save yourself some bucks.... Could be a good idea if all of the extra tech is not even something that you need / care about...
  10. Further information: I purchased these here a couple of months ago, as part of the search for my perfect headphones. They are sublime, but don't represent best fit for my listening tastes. I had previously sampled LCD-2's and found them a little lacking in 'sparkle' or 'air' for my tastes. The mids and highs on these are breathtaking... but I kept finding myself wanting for more bass when I listened to EDM (Which, admittedly, is mostly what I listen to..) Recently found my goldilocks cans in Focal Clear, so the Grado's are looking for a new home again. They are in excel
  11. You just can't beat flexible payment options.... 😎 Great work, Bill!
  12. Given the quality of the gear in your system, I would suggest that your current DAC might blow out your Kessel Run to well over 15 parsecs.
