Nice!

 

How do you chose which one to listen to every day morning between the four you have? Problems in life!! 

Daytime:

Focal Clear for dynamics

Ananda for instrumentals and orchestras 


Evening:

Sony for ‘boom boom pow’

Pioneer for neutrality & instrumentals

Got these $15 switchers...

Works well 

both DACs are Serving 3 outputs now ..

 

Will test and sell the ones I feel are redundant.

got the cheaper switchers (the ones we were discussing yesterday) and some excellent cables from Amazon  --- these ridiculously good cables for that price.

Please excuse the dust, my desk is due for a spring clean.

 

My current daily drive is a Focal Elex. The astute among you will note that a pair of Elears are pictured - I have both atm to compare.

 

General setup is: MediaMonkey > Topping D30 (Optical) > THX AAA 789 / ZDT Jr. / Micca Origain. I use high impedance cans on the tubes and the Origain drives a pair of Kef Q100s.

 

Lego Jango Fett is also an integral part of the setup, of course

No I don't, there was an option at checkout between 110V and 220V options. Who knows if/when Massdrop will make it available again tho

Ah right. Bummer.

 

I've only seen used ones in 110v overseas.

I don't know whether I really belong here. Magnificent setups abound! My headphone usage typically comes about most evenings when my wife has had enough of my SPL's. My system mainly for vinyl listening is Senn HD6xx, Matrix m- Stage HPA-1 with a top flight Burson op amp, fed by a heavily upgraded Aric Audio 3.7 tube preamplifier currently running JJ Electronic gold pin ECC82 tubes.

I bet a lot of people love the Arya too. Listening to Tangerine Dream now with them and it's great. Wide soundstage, airy and oozing with details.

Yes. My favs. are the Sennheiser 700s but on SS HP amps a little bright. The ADs sound better here.

I am not an expert on headphones, but when I first heard AD, I really liked how it sounded. Just regret not buying it then especially when it was on sale, I may end up buying it at some stage.

A simpler temp HP setup than I would normally have.

  • Pi3 B+ with Audiophonics DAC HAT.
  • Blue Wave CMoy style HP amp
  • Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro closed back phones.
  • Powered by a phone changer battery.  
     

Listening to streaming Audiophile Classical.
