If you forget about them again, I'm always in the market for another pair wink_face.gif

The Burson is a fine amp without a doubt, but I find the Lyr with a nice pair of vintage Bugle Boys more pleasing with my Senns. The Crack on the other hand, well, it's too soon to say for sure, but I just *may* be putting some Schiit up for sale soon. Possibly. I'll be spending some more quality time with all of this fine equipment before I make a final decision, but the Bottlehead simply kicks booty with the HD-650. The glowing testimonials are there for very good reason.

Oh, I love my Lyr and actually prefer it to the Soloist with my setup. However I just may have developed a Crack addiction today. A few more weeks will tell me for sure, but the Crack is most definitely a force to be reckoned with in this equation. biggrin.gif

Nice, I've really itched to try the bottlehead! That itch went away when I first got my CTH but true to head-fi form the bottlehead looks good again :) I'm not sure it would fair as well with my current headphones as it does with the hd6xx series... Enjoy my friend, and good luck deciding what to do with the Lyr ;)

The speaker placement is.....less than ideal.....to say the least. But its quite literally the only configuration possible for this room. I could take out the book case and go at a diagonal/corner desk type setup but the table legs would get in the way and speaker placement still wouldnt be that great. I've sold the Audioengine A5's up there, but right now there is a problem with the area the subwoofer crosses over and the speakers drop out. Very boomy and such.

HD650 and O2 on the way, fed from AMB Gamma 2 F++.

Looking at those settings, they must be listening to LCD2. A little added roll off at the sub level, a dash down in the upper mids and a slight upward tilt for the upper treble. More hifi friendly ;)

As far as this setup goes I am pretty much done when it comes to audio equipment. I have all the pieces I ever wanted, at least for as long as I own this place: its a condo so I can't realistically buy (and enjoy) anything more powerful than what I have, and at the volumes that I do listen at this stuff all sounds wonderful. So here we go:

 

First a Panoramic View:

 

Panoramic View of my Living Room/Computer Area

 

The Main Setup:

 

Living Room Setup: Wharfedale Evo2-30 Towers Wharfedale Evo2-Center Channel REL T2 Subwoofer Rega RP1 Turntable Denon AVR-4311CI Oppo BDP-105 Sony PS3 TiVO Premiere Samsung TV

Labeled:

Computer Desk Setup:

Portable Setup:

 

Portable Gear: Sennheiser PX360 Fiio E7 Cowon J3

 

Media Closet (unfinished - needs painting):

 

Media Closet Unfinished: SACDs DVD-As DualDisc CDs Special Edition CDs Regualar CDs Vinyl LPs Blu Rays DVDs PS3 Games Old School Nintendo, PS1, Colecovision and Atari Game Carts Tools, Cables, Boxes and Junk

Now some more detailed shots:

 

Entertainment Center: Wharfedale Evo2-30 Towers Wharfedale Evo2-Center Channel Rega RP1 Turntable Denon AVR-4311CI Oppo BDP-105 Sony PS3 TiVO Premiere

Entertainment Center featuring: Wharfedale Evo2-30 Towers as fronts, Evo2 Center Channel, Evo2-20 Towers as rears (not shown), REL T2 Sub (not shown), Denon AVR-4311CI, Oppo BDP-105, Rega RP1, Sony PS3 and TiVo Premiere. Also shown: Sennheiser HD650 (powered by the Oppo's wonderful built-in headphone amp).

 

Computer Desk with Wharfedale Diamond 7.1 Bookshelf speakers

Computer Desk with a 22" AOC monitor, Wharfedale Diamond 7.1 Bookshelf speakers, Fiio E9 Headphone Amp. The 7.1s and Fiio E9 are fed by a Yamaha HTR 3064 Reciever which is fed by a Yamaha S2500 SACD Player via analog, and either the computer's E-MU 1212m PCI Sound Card (when running JRiver for music or Audacity/Sonar 4 when ripping LPs and editing the WAVs) or the onboard RealTekHD card (when doing everything else)

Yamaha DVD-S2500 Yamaha HTR-3064

Where the computer outputs its sound: Yamaha HTR-3064 and a Yamaha DVD-S2500 SACD-DVDA-CD Player

 

As for the future, like I said, audio equipment for my living room/computer area I am pretty much set. I can only see myself adding MAYBE a headphone tube amp (but thats hard to justify because the Oppo does such nice work with my HD650s). I could see myself buying a few more pairs of cans: HD700s for home use, Amperiors and/or Momentums for road use with my PX360s going to my wife, and maybe some HD598s for desk/office use.

 

However, I do realize that my little 40" TV looks quite silly on my big ass wall, so eventually a 60" TV will make its way there. My friend is also trading me his slightly older but slightly higher end Yamaha HTR 5950 for my 3064, so that will temporarily reside as my computer amp.  When I get my 60" TV for the living room, my 40" will go to my bedroom where I dont have anything hooked up yet. The 5950 will go to the bedroom, where I also have a Sony SACD Changer, and I will probably pick up an old Oppo DVP-980 or Denon 2910 and run it analog out to the Yamaha HTR 5950 (which does NOT have HDMI). The PS3 will also makes its way there as a BR player and I will connect it and the cable box via HDMI directly to the TV, and sound will be optical to the Yamaha for both. As far as speakers go, I am on the fence of getting a set of Wharfedale Achromatic speakers, probably one of the two towers as fronts, and the rest the smaller, or maybe picking up a used set of Wharfedale Zaldeks, or maybe just go Frankenstein and pick up whatever used/good deal Wharfedales I come across Ebay or Craigslist until I have 5.1 of them.

The REL is gorgeous. Those were always my favorite of their line. Why a White RP1 though?
