  1. I have the ML5s that @Darren69 sold and they are amazing! GLWTS.
  2. The Utopias definitely have the edge over Clear when it comes to premium materials and they feel more solid to me. Despite being a little heavier I find them more comfortable as well. Sound-wise the Clear is no slouch and offers great performance for the price, IMO, but I since I got Utopias my Clears are relegated to office duty
  3. Good to see you're up and running again, Daz! My new amp was shipped today so hoping to have it by the weekend. Cheers, Rick.
  4. Working perfectly, thanks Daz. A lot more gravitas than the Elacs they replace!
  5. ML5s are installed and working, albeit only driven by a Yamaha RX-A3030 at present. Thanks, @Darren69 Such a beautiful bubble wrap job that it was a shame to tear it off Thanks for the amp advice Daz and @soundbyte
  6. Only one sleep now @Darren69 Then I better start looking for an amp to do the speakers justice! Cheers, Rick.
  7. David Byrne, American Utopia. We saw the concert down the Gold Coast last year and it was one of the best live musical experiences I can recall. There were a few good ones from the 70s that I can't remember that well
  8. I'll bring the Empys to the next Brisbane HeadFi GTG. The Utopia sound is definitely related to the Clear but still quite different.
  9. I have SR-007A and SR-009 with a Mjolnir KGSSHV Carbon amp but I do like the Utopias and Empyreans as well. So maybe a 4 headphone minimum?
  10. I have come to the conclusion that 2 pairs of headphones is the absolute minimum. One really accurate pair and one smooth and silky pair for less critical listening. Of course, 4 pairs or 6 pairs is even better
  11. I'm offering EaaS for sure, @Bengineer. The Aeons are really nice for a closed headphone but I haven't formed any final opinions. My ears are only just starting to work again after my flight back from Singapore with a coid I will get you some pics of the Empys. They are really growing on me as fun, easy listening headphones. The Utopias are incredible for detail but not quite as forgiving of crappy input.
  12. I feel obliged to compete with the software guys and their racks of test equipment! At home keeping the Utopias company, @Bengineer
  13. I'm trying to minimise my work rig... without much success
  14. My desk is too crowded but I'll see what I can do tomorrow
  15. Ha, that would scare a few people, Ben, including my wife
