Back then I had a huge Discman collection, and a penchant for old school (even back then, so prehistoric now) CD players...

Still have an original (circa 1983) Yamaha player stored away, it's funny the account of ICs it has on the many PCBs under the hood.


You're not alone Duncan, I original joined because I was looking for some info on a Sony D-E900 or D-E905. I still have many of the PCDPs that I've bought over the years since joining up in storage, some of them working, some of them not. Even went as far as purchasing multiple variations of the same model. Still have in my collection a functioning Sony D-5 up to a Sony D-626 complete with romote orginal box and papers, from a sony D-82 up to a Denon DCP-150. May have to dig them out of storage and check them out once in a while.

my precioud D-626 was a total loss after the flood that hit Bangkok a few years back sadly.  i still have the D777, E900, and a few others including the D303.  now i own the zx2 and z1.

Nope, not really around on Head-Fi anymore - but still alive and active member on a couple of other hifi fora, so not all too difficult to find...

 

Hope you're all doing fine - especially the old-timers.

When I joined head-fi in 2005, I owned the Sennheiser HD-650, used only in my main stereo. Suddenly there was this thing called an iPod, and I could play lossless music from it via a headphone amp into great headphones in all sorts of places. Very handy. I sure got sucked in. I think my peak simultaneous headphone inventory was around 20, well over $10k worth.

And now...I own the Beyer DT-880-600, and the AT-ANC7 for trips. My kids are in their late teens, and almost all of my music listening is done through loudspeakers again. I still read and enjoy head-fi in places, but my posting is very infrequent. I'm actually hoping to be overtaken in the top-10 all time posters soon tongue.gif

I'm glad you are still doing just fine. I have paused all my activity about the headphones 5 years ago and when I came back 1 years ago, the first thing I was looking for was your reviews. I didnt see your reviews at all, actually I thought I would see you review the K10, the LCD4 or Hex , but I havnt seen anything. You know I thought about the time when you reviewed the Dx1000 and meier stepdance. I sill own the DX1000 today,even add the Dx2000 to my collection. really glad indeed that you're still around

Thanks Coolcat, very kind of you. I would say of all the headphones I let go, the one pair I kind of wish I still had was the DX1000. If I listened more to headphones, I would probably buy a used pair. Both the fit and sound are so comfy biggrin.gif

Yup, that belongs to the ones I regularly visit, but it's not my favourite German forum - that would rather be the Dual-Board. While my favourite English/International fora would be VinylEngine and Audiokarma.

.... and you're adding to your post count here.....    :L3000:

 

 

But, not to worry   - you'll soon be dropping off the top ten posters...... like by the end of the year......    :wink_face:    (perhaps)
