What full-scale hi-fi do you listen to? - Page 2

post #16 of 18
In order to be as precise as I can when reviewing audio gear, I have installed a living female choir in my living room!

Problem is it that it will sing whatever it wants, whenever it wants (which is always).

The famous choir singers are:

My doughter
My wife
My mother
My mother in law
My wife's sisters (2 of those)

So…you' d better not mess with my judgement of audio gear!!!

If I can live in that house then I can do anything else really well!

My home rig : Wilson Watt/Puppys, Jeff Rowland amp, Slim Devices Transporter, Lingo Linn LP12 with Graham tonearm and a lot of room treatments.

The Watts image like crazy and have gobs of detail so I don't hear more detail with iems.

But the ETY4S keeps up in the detail dept. as do the AKG701.

It's too early for me to form an opinion of the UM3X re detail.

I like iems and headphones for the intimacy of the experience and the detail they provide.
I don't really think so much in terms of soundstage or headstage since there is no way, IMO, they can compete with a speaker .

There are times when I listen at home to phones because I am in the mood for that kind of presentation and/or b/c my kid has the TV on loud.

In your case IEMs with solid isolation would trump speakers. You are the exception to the rule
