Mom, I shrunk the audio system! Chord MojoPoly and Noble K10U.

That lovely red case was hand made by Valentinum in Ukraine (check his work out on Etsy).

Can’t get enough of that tube sound. Built yet another hybrid amp. Just need to find a use for it..... too many amps, too few ears...

My gear for headphone listening. Jays u-jay headphones, paired with either a Xduoo XD-05, or, a brilliant vintage unit, the Hifi News and Record review accessory club "Headcase" headphone amplifier designed by Tim D Paravicini. Over thirty years old, still brilliant. The other headphones on the stand are Audio Technica AD900s, and in the rack a Lite Dac60 running original Bugle Boy tubes.
It all makes nice sounds. Would love to add planars to the collection though.IMG_20180729_162759.jpgIMG_20180729_162820.jpg

Here I have an Audiolab M-DAC being fed by my PC. It's running either the pictured LCD2C's or some Audioengine A5+ that I have on stands beside my desk.

The set up is an IKEA Fredde desk with some pegboard and shitty DIY vines and LED lights. I'm proud of my completely absent decorating skills here.

Those V Modas look nice in that colour. I'm off to pick up a pair of the M100's this weekend.

My base and speaker box maker Don made this base after spotting the timber at timber yard. The base is one of a kind and great looking and complements an excellent sounding HP amp. Glad you like it. 

 

All the tube HP amps I have made and sold over the years I'm left with none. But I do use an Oatley K272C modified. Portable and good sounding. It also goes OS with me and drives my closed back Beyerdynamics 440s for both music and (best of all) moving watching while blocking out plane and human noise.

Newly acquired Beyer T90 from @was_a. This hp sounds superb. So much details and resolution. Not as much as the HD800 but in a way more musical and fun. Bass has more oomph, vocals have a rich, clear tone and high notes are sparkly.

 

At $290 for an almost new pair of T90, it's a real bargain.

I see hold the 800s in high regard. I have the 700s and think them great. I'd only buy new and can't justify the cost of the 800. Not only that I rarely use HPs.

That's surprising Mc, seeing you make a lot of tube amps for others. 🙂

Its about the hobby of audio electronics and particularly tubes which drives me. After saying that when I am on phones I do enjoy them and do marvel at the 800s (meant 700s) above my other two good phones.

I think sterophile may have reviewed this some years back. Looks smart.

Indeed, you have a good memory!

 

It's had some hardcore revisions since the review they wrote. But still overall the same deal.
