Live at Carnegie Hall, and Time Further Out are both good as well. Live at Carnegie Hall is a really really good album. Good music, good performance, and it's recorded very well for the most part.
A few posts back you can see how I wired my Q701 up to my Emotiva Mini-X speaker amp. At first I had just used the bare wire into the binding posts, then I got some Banana plugs and wired them up that way. My first attempt at making them look good and strong was a bit of a weak attempt. Well today I found some metal sleeves to press into the banana plugs since the Q701 wire is so tiny, and the Banana plugs accept up to a 12 gauge wire. I also got some heat shrink tubing....

Some of you might have seen about a week ago how I had wired my Q701 up to my Emotiva Mini-X speaker amp.

EQ can also be your very good friend of you find them to be bright or think they have peaks that you don't like. Equalizer APO is a free system wide Windows PEQ that is essentially limitless in its capabilities. It offers up to 100 PEQ bands per channel. I really think more people should be using it.
I was originally using an old Pioneer SX-750 receiver to power a set of nearfield speakers and my headphones. Then I decided that I wanted to try the Emotiva Mini-X with my nearfield speakers. I noticed an improvement in sound so I sold the SX-750, which left me with no headphone amp. At first I didn't care as I really wasn't listening to headphones much, then eventually I wanted to at least have the option to use the cans I have, so I was on the verge of buying a Schiit...
the other night I got brave and hooked my AKG Q701 directly to the speaker taps of my Mini-X that I have been using my my nearfield speaker rig. I cut the 3.5mm end off of the longer supplied cable that I never use and decided to hook it up. I used a multi-meter to figure out which color wire was ground, left, and right and quickly wired it up. It gets loud at the 8 o'clock position on the volume knob so there is barely any throw on the knob, but the knob has fine enough...
