Quick window shot on a rainy day in Dallas. Hard to arrange because my office has a bay window and no straight walls. Nice because it looks out over the forest leading to Lake Grapevine - very relaxing. The other listening station is in a window seat by the pool, with the amp sitting in the window on foot-thick walls (ICF house). The WBQHS (whiz-bang quick headphone stand) is an embarrassment, but I have a nice slab of black walnut to make a new one someday. Very pedestrian setup, but I enjoy it. Nothing has ever been able to touch the Stax that I bought new a very, very long time ago when, for a brief moment, they were the best in the world. The small box is unrelated - it is used for home automation programming.
I don't think anyone here's going to criticize you for spending your money on headphones instead of a nice stand
At least I certainly wouldn't; I wish I had some Stax.
