Didn't know where to post this exactly because of the variuous components ... BTW this is my first post in the forum so Hi to everyone !
I just wanted to share my plan for buiding my first "seriuos" set up for proper headphone listening sessions. So, after days of reading and unfortunately no listenning, this is what I'm going to buy hoping it is a good and balanced match between the various components. Any suggestion from your experienses ?
Step 1 (in september for my birthday)
Vielectric V181 balanced amp
Moon Audio Blue Dragon balanced cable
Step 2 (as soon as budget allows ...)
Main filter Xindak XF-2000ES
Cables: Xindak PC-02 (power) Xindak BC-01 (signal XLR) Xindak FD-01 (digital COAX) KimberKable USB BBUS Ag (digital USB)
I struggled to make up my mind as far as headphone recabling is concerned (considering impossibility to test) ... Eventually I decided for Moon Audio mainly because:
1) It seems to be a nice cable for the price and I believe copper is a good choice for stock HD800
2) There is a 20% discount at the moment and this is even better
3) I need a long cable (15 feet - I hope this isn't going to affect quality - what do you think?) and their price doesn't go up too much with lenght
Thanks for any further advice / comment
