Post Pictures Of Your Headphone Setup


Recommended Posts

While i realise there is the showcase forum i thought it would be a nice idea to start a thread here in the headphone forum for members to post up pictures of their headphone systems.

Ill start with mine, nothing to special given my love for speakers. Just a Sony CDP XE200 into the G&W TW-J1 headphone amplifier, interconnects are JIB Premium interconnects. Headphones are Audio-Technica ES7's or AKG 240 studio's. Great for late night listening (shared house) :hiccup

Bit of an old pic now, but here we go.

Mine few months back :-)

This is the only picture of my set up that I have and unfortunately Its packed away in boxes since im away for work for the time being. It consists of AKG K701 and a Millet MiniMAX. Not sure what tubes are in the minimax though.

I also have a Corda Cantate which out for a warranty job (and has been for about 3 months now...) and a Bottlehead SEX amp which is somewhere in Australia from what I can work out from online tracking. The problem is my soldering iron and tools are also packed away in boxes and wont see the light of day for another month or so.

Here's what I use.

The amp is a kit from Oatley Electronics, sound is good but valves tend to ring if knocked.

the DAC is a Kit too, this time from Hong Kong

Phones are Sennie HD414s

The Media Player is a Creative Zen X-Fi wireless so can stream from the PC too.

could you get it a little blacker .... :P

That Pic is real,I live in semi darkness.

That way the furniture (Black) blends into the shadows.

10 years ago I bought 5 spare lightbulbs,I still have them.

The reason the doors are white is so I can find them at night.

nice cans!

which amp you have?

I have the SRM T1 without the balanced input, that's what I'll be using for at least a few years!

Great sound, just bloody brilliant.

2) Direct connection to Marantz CD63 - it has dedicated headphone stage with volume control

3) JVC 7.1 HT amp

Hello whitenoise.

Ideally i'd like to upgrade everything, new source, headphones and an amplifier.

Im unsure on a CD player or amplifier but i'd love to try a pair of the ATH AD2000's. An SPL Phonitor or other high end headphone amplifier would be great but being a recently poor graduate they are all out of reach :P

Hopefully there might be some tax money to spend within a few weeks :D

Hi All,

New member here.

Just recently (end of last year) got back into headphones after a 30 year or so break !!

First heard a pair of AT AD-900s in a friend's system. Into HP output of an integrated amp.

Liked what I heard and bought a pair from Headphonics. Use them for gaming & music on my PC.

Did quite a lot of research, and got totally confused by the plethora of options out there.

Ended up going with the following:

Coax digital out from a Toshiba DVD player (my NAD CD player decided to give up the ghost after 13 years of getting hammered !!),

into a Meier Audio StageDAC, into a Bottlehead Crack/Speedball OTL valve HP amp, into Beyerdynamic DT880 Manufaktur 600 ohm cans.

Using Blue Jeans cables for IC & coax.

Had a friend in WA build a box for the Crack from swamp Kauri (NZ wood) offcuts he had lying around.

Carbon dated at approx. 15,000 years old !!

Love the sound. Using 60s CBS 12BH7 driver & a 60s CBS 6AS7G in the Crack.

Cheers,

John

John, that is a gorgeous setup you have. The wood on the Crack looks stunning, I'm sure it looks better still in person, very jealous.

Do you use the crossfeed much in the stageDAC?

Guy

Thanks Guy.

I leave the crossfeed on all the time with HP - it doesn't seem to do anything on modern stereo recordings,

but works well on old recordings that are very LEFT / RIGHT. I love it.

Haven't really done critical listening in speaker crossfeed mode. Just put it back to normal for speakers.

StageDAC has 2 outputs: 1 variable (goes into power amp section of NAD 317) & 1 fixed (into Bottlehead Crack).

Makes me interested in the SPL Phonitor with it's interesting crossfeed, speaker angle, etc controls.

Also have some compononent upgrades to go into Crack: film caps for DC couplers, better RCA inputs and a new pot.

Have been slack with that tho' eyeroll.gif.

I have a Meier amp that has a cross feed in it and think it is something that all headphone users should have access to, but I don't use it all the time. It a bit of a shame that Jan Meier stopped production of the Cross-1.

I may get the opportunity to audition a Phonitor later this year, probably never buy one but it would be interesting to hear it.

Keep us posted about the upgrades, thats if they ever happen :)

The Phonitor's had the Burson opamp transplant and I'm still not embedded with enough time to give a definitive conclusion on the sound.

(I tend to quite measured and patient in my assessment of audio componentry as to avoid the typical head-fi fanboi hysteria)

For now however, I will say it is somewhat less front forward in its presentation compared to the Weiss DAC202. If you're interested in the

crossfeed implementation, you will be reassured it is not a gimmick. Also, I find pairing it to the right can is as important with the Phonitor

as it is with other amps. I'm finding the SPL/HD25 combo is killer, whilst at this stage I'm leaning towards the Weiss for the LCD-2.

The headphone stand was made by a friend, who also made the box for my Bottlehead amp (now in lounge room performing speaker duties)

Guy

ps take no notice of the Altec Lansing speakers - they are temporary

Haha damn busted. That was a while ago as well but they just won't die. I'm moving in two months so the system(s) will most likely change a bit so now I'm waiting until then. Also a real job with a real income should help the situation.
