Thanks!   It looks like the Philips Fidelio S1 might be a good choice as well.  Thoughts?
For a ~$100 IEM, what would be your choice and why: Brainwavz B2 or HifiMan RE-400?
Here is a re-post of my initial review of Paradox (serial #8):   A couple of days ago was an early Christmas, as when I returned home from work a package sat upon my porch.  Carefully opening revealed a present from from Santa LFF - a brand new set of Paradox T50RP headphones!!!   I only have one thing to say about the Paradox's:  HOLY SH_T!!!!  These are without a doubt, the clearest most resolving headphones I have ever heard.  Although I've listened to this CD...
  As a proud owner of Paradox, I can only say to those waiting -- it will be worth the wait!!!  The more I listen to the my Paradox, the less I listen to any other headphones I own.  I have taken my pair to work, and now rarely listen to headphones at home as my HD-580s and K-701's simply do not compare.   As a final comment to how much I love these headphones - I have placed an order for second set!!
Some comments at InnerFidelity regarding the Paradox & Mad Dogs: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/innerfidelity-july-update.  Copied here:   "Mr. Speakers sent one of his Mad Dog modified Fostex T50RP headphones in for a measure and a listen. While certainly better than most modded T50RPs, they sounded a tad dry relative to the lush smoothness of LFF's Paradox or the Smeggy Thunderpants."
Interesting question.  I can not say that I truly have experienced "high end" audio, but I do know what I like.  About six month ago, I had the opportunity to purchase a pair of Paradox modified T50rp's from LFF.  I posted a review, the text of which I've included here:     A couple of days ago was an early Christmas, as when I returned home from work a package sat upon my porch.  Carefully opening revealed a present from from Santa LFF - a brand new set of Paradox...
Well said my friend.  Well said!!!    
For sale Silver Meier Concerto.  I am the original owner, receiving this amp from Jan on 9-Jan-11.  It works flawlessly.   Price includes shipping to CONUS.  The amp will be shipped in the originally packaging.   Here is a link to SkyLab's review of the Concerto: http://www.head-fi.org/t/471583/review-meier-audio-concerto-headphone-amp#post_6387958.   Thanks for looking   -Tim  
Damn - she was one of the greats.   At Last is one of my all time favorites.   I have her Chess Box set and treasure it immensely.
So with my upcoming CTH, I have the following tubes coming as well:   Sylvania 5963 GE 12AU7A/ECC82 Westinghouse Reliatron 4BG7A Siemens E88CC.   Not sure of the age of these, but have been told the are good "starter" tubes.   In addition I have an   E88CC Tesla Gold Pin 2AU7 vintage MULLARD tube labeled as Amperex-Long Grey Plates-"O"   coming as well.  I don't know the ages of these either, but these should give me plenty of...
