Every time I see an ESP, I smile insanely.

Modded Entech number cruncher, the one with multiple switchable sources.  So I was using it as a source selector between two DVD decks on the coax and the Macbook on toslink optical.  I (along with the help of another member) modded the output side with an OPA2107.  There are better dacs but I like the way it sounds, but that will probably be my next upgrade.  no big hurry though.

 

Yeah the switch on this thing is huge... and theres TWO of them!!, one for each monoblock.  I've already bumped it a couple times.  Tubes don't like rapidfire power cycles.  I have to go to Frys today and pick up a second DPDT so its the  same right to left.  One things for sure, darkvoice made it nearly impossible to replace any of the user interfacing components under the front plate.  I had to buy a special 90 degree ratcheting screwdriver to get the six screws off.

Thats not an esp 950, its an A250 form the late 1990 time frame.  I'd like to try a 950 some day.

post #10744 of 18741

It's too bad those A250s (and there was another similar family member if I remember correctly) were discontinued and became impossible to find. I remember reading your threads about them years ago and always wanted to try them. They looked like the struck a good balance of things I wanted for a great price.

You're joking right? Please tell me you're joking. You have well over 3 thousands dollars worth of headphones on these shelves. And that's not even counting the amplifiers and DACs.

 

If you're not joking, then you have the most remarkable way of rationalizing your spending. rolleyes.gif

Where did you get the $3k  + figure from? From what I can see:

 

K550 - $150-220

D5k - $450-550

D7k - $650-800

HD650 - $350-400

I used MSRP prices, and his profile:


Grado RS2 w/ Button 500$
Grado Black SR325 - p!nk drivers 300$
Denon D5000 700$
Denon D7000 1000$
FrankenGrado SR325 300$
Sennheiser HD650 500$
AKG K550  300$
AKG K450 75
 
Total 3675$ (+ taxes)

 

And from what I can see, that's a Beyerdynamics T1 box on the top shelf - another 1400$. With this, it's more like 5 k$.

 

Any way you look at it, it's far from an "humble" setup. The thing is, recently many people posted similar setups while referring to them as "humble". It seems as if anything short of a SR-009 setup is considered "humble", even if this includes owning a copy or two of everything short of a SR-009.

I agree..a humble setup is in my eyes under 750: an amp + headphones..but hey..we are on headfi.. There are other rules here.. My complete headphone  rig is probably considered also a poor mans choice ( as in humble) being just under 3000 euros  with cabling included. biggrin.gif

Well my collection certainly starts to increase in value when I go by RRP. I thought he was being ironic.

Just pulled the trigger on a pair of HD650's How much I end up liking them will determine whether or not my trusty 580's will go up for sale.
