So does anyone know if the higher powered versions have an incidence on noise floor and distortion?   And what about the higher order harmonic distortion that was shown on the ES9018M?
Has anyone seen the measurements for the GEEK since the switch to the ES9018M?   I've seen the measurements for the GEEK Pulse, there seems to be quite a lot of high order harmonics.   Do we know whether going from the normal GEEK to the Super Duper GEEK raises noisefloor and THD?
  I feel your pain, Californication and Death Magnetic? BUt more seriously, for records you are asked to master (and not re-master), how often do you have wonder if the guy who mixed had an idea of sound quality?
  Have you ever gotten mixes/recordings that were so bad that you went "no amount of mastering can save that, re-record and redo the mix please!".
It wouldn't help much actually, you'd get a flat response, but with zero reverb, and mastering rooms aren't reverb free environments either,
That's strange, if you feel that you need to push past 60 with classical, it's obvious that classical at 60 is still less loud than pop at 40.Besides, how do you think an amp is going to solve your volume issues? By getting the headphone to play louder, that's how.Incidentally, that can also be done by turning up the volume on the Anedio D2.
We are talking of two different things, you are considering the technology from the pov of the record collector and I'm considering it in a general pov.
When comparing different technologies, it's usually more appropriate to ignore factors external to the technology itself. It's basically like claiming that SACD is a better technology because there exists better masters taht were only released on SACD.
I was only comparing a new master tape and a newly pressed LP from that master tape andI thought that the vinyl master pressing was directly cut from the master tape after a RIAA equalisation.
Compared to the master tape, vinyl is a very degraded source.
