We should meat up so you could take a listen on the amp ;).

I'm afraid I don't. I've seen some discussion of such things online here, and also a recommendation of some sort of fixed level attenuators that can be inserted inline that are inexpensive and don't hurt quality, but I don't remember where.

I find that the T1 sound very good with some electronic music and synthesized stuff as well.

OK , I'm lying.  I didn't use flash, just 80 ISO in fairly low light with a cheap camera.

 

Here you can just barely see the lettering.

Ah, pretty tricky, those Germans. I've seen other photos where the name didn't show up, as well. It actually looks pretty cool without it.

Absolutely! Some electronic music can really show off the excellent bass extension.

 

I confess to being a fan of electronic music ever since first hearing Switched On Bach when I was in grade school (oops, I'm dating myself...)

Anjunabeats, they rock...

People like Super8/Tab, Smith/Pledger, Aalto, Tiesto etc etc etc

I've been listening to a lot of metal on them recently, especially Opeth stuff. The more recent few albums have great mastering on them and really sound good on this headphone.

yes.  in particular, this shot of skylab's T1s had me scratching my head, until i realized that the appearance of the lettering was pretty trick to photograph...

Which one of your amps do you like the best with the T1

Me? As odd as it sounds I prefer my WA3+ with them the most. It just drives them so much better.

I agree as my CSP-2 sound best. They love tubes.

LOL But it does sound good with my Matrix just that the Decware really is in another class with the T1. I said the same thing and lived with 701 and MK11 Little for a whole year before I became insane.
