Well I've just spent the last 6 months with only one headphone... Had the HD800 a couple of years now and I have no want for another. Theres two good points in regards to what this means for me; 1. I've beat my 'buying headphones' addiction... 2. I have been able to put all my focus on the music recently - Not balancing a perfection in sound quality as well. I've also lived with my vintage NAD amps feeding them for many months too and have now completely stopped looking...
This is a lovely Schumann disc from the hands of Maria Joao Pires. She has only recorded a select number of works of Schumann and this is a bit of a shame imo. Her forte is normally Chopin and Mozart. Her touch is highly sensual and romantic and this works marvelously with Schumanns slower pieces. But I also like her energy and timing in the more bipolic parts. This comes highly recommended if you haven't heard it or want an introduction into Schumann's piano world. I've...
Lookin good! 
Two of my favorite Elektra's..   This one is always a surprise for anyone who hasn't heard it me thinks. Ozawa probably wouldn't be anyones first choice for Stauss and its arguable that Behrens hasn't got what it takes for the role. Decide for yourself, but I think it works well. Ozawa conducts very cleverly, building tension slowly and bringing out a bit more light and shade in the score rather than going all out bombastic as some conductors approach this fiercest of...
^^^nice!   Brilliant musician and quite a composer himself. 
Hah I Iuv this!  
Its a purchase that I'm probably going to make anyway but thanks for the offer bud- appreciate it :) Even if it is a minor improvement then I know it will be good!   
I'd agree that the hp out of the beresford's is not ideal for the HD800. However, as far as 'added' hp outs on dacs go it is really quite good with lower impedance cans. It has a very refined sound and a nice bottom end, very smooth. The BM and AKG's is a good match imo. Far too thin sounding with the HD800 though... It just ain't got the juice man!!    In regards to the Caiman, I'm defo interested in the mark II. I've owned the mark I for a number of years and still...
Great stuff thanks for sharing that bud :)
I'm in that club bud ;) I see you now have the Caiman II, how does it stack against the BM II? With the HD800 of course :)
