Bugger the speakers, what about the Phonitor?

This is my set up as of recently. We just moved in so the speaker placement is nowhere near optimal but it will have to do for now.

. . . what about the Phonitor?

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)

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

Mine still looks exactly the same, maybe a little messier and lacking the AKG's. I do need to replace the speakers ASAP though..

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.

My Audeze LCD2's. Standard cable, have been too poor/busy to have gotten an after market cable yet. Also using the inbuilt headphone stage on my Audiolab 8000C preamp. It works for now (I'm not a huge headphone user). If only Audeze would make a smaller, portable headphone for the iPhone...

I have a Graham Slee Novo headphone amp on loan at the moment, already better than my home made effort.

A pair of rather old and tatty Beyer DT 880s that still sound wonderful.

The tattered nature of those DT880s really adds to their character. I like it! Vintage looking amp and headphones ;)

Doesn't look tatty to me. And the Leben looks gorgeous!
