Yep, I know when I sold my Qs a couple weeks ago, I had to lower the asking price since Amazon has them at a really attractive price right now. For those who like the sound, it's a great time to buy. In the meantime I'll continue to enjoy their photogenic qualities :D

it is early yet, but i can already see a REL sub in my near future.
the Harbeths' midbass is terrific, but i want extension down to 20 Hz, please.   wink.gif



So after auditioning speakers today I think I've decided to go with...these. Harbeth Suoer 5s. Absolutely put Zu and Devore on blast.

Cool.  Could you post your demo impressions of all three in the 'pics of your high end rig' thread?  It's a bit more conducive to that discussion than this one.  IIRC people were following your pre-demo thoughts on that thread anyway.

I was planning on it. Just remembered that the exact speaker I was wowed by was recently talked about here as well.

Will take better photos on the weekend, but this is my current setup:

700

 

From the right - B&W MM1, Audeze LCD-2, Sennheiser HD 650, Mac mini 2011, and the Fiio E7/E9 (soon to be HRT Music Streamer II+ and M-Stage amp :) )

post #10057 of 20178
A bit grainy taken from my ipad directly. But added a couple things since I last posted here. Namely the Lyr and the HD650.
post #10058 of 20178

I do almost zero listening by headphone or speakers for that matter at home, since the birth of my 2nd child. So I decided to put some better, by my standards, bits into my work setup.

 

Just added this week, Fiio E10 and Alessando MS1(loving them both so far). Also pictured, ATH M35, K240 Mkii, Ipod Shuffle, Ipod classic, new style apple earbuds, Boston Acoustics HD5, and my in-laws' old Penncrest receiver.

700

 

Edit: yeah its always that cluttered, headphones or not.

Using my Lyr as a preamp for the speakers....I got lazy and didnt want to switch cables every time I wanted to listen to my cans.

Those A2's?

post #10062 of 20178

Is that a polystyrene mannequin head or is it solid it solid plastic/glass? Thinking of getting one for my upcoming SR-Omega's.

post #10063 of 20178

definitely styrofoam. pier 1 has glass heads for like 12 bucks.

post #10064 of 20178
I have 2 of the heads and don't use them for stands due to paranoia about pad wear.

Yeah, so far I like them. they have a little recession in the mids but a really nice and airy treble...also mountains of bass, though they do distort when too loud, they get very loud very fast. They also have a channel imbalance from left to right, I notice that the right id NOTABLY quieter than the right one until its at a moderately loud level.
