Totally agree on that point.  I replaced my mmf 2.2 mat with acrylic and no more static.

 

 

 

Also added a new addition to my listening station last week.

 

Would you be so kind as to provide a high res version of that turntable shot, at least 2560x1440? I want to make it my wallpaper :]

Think the LYR/Bifrost combo is sufficient to drive them?

Lyr for LCD2 is plenty of power and sounds just fine. You can get away with the HD650 as well but the HD650 is one that would really benefit from something such as OTL tube amp. The Crack comes to mind. The 650's scaling depends on the amp you're driving them. The better the amp the better the sound.

Here you go.  It scaled down to 2560 x 1706.  Thanks for asking!  biggrin.gif

My dealer pretty much leaves whatever table he has hooked up on when he's in the shop.

 

It's no more scary than cueing something up. I love it, especially since the Amadeus takes a long time to spin up to speed. 

 

Always powered down with my Scout but with a mat table you can flip when it's on no problem.

Yea, I always turn the turntable off when flipping sides.  I also did this with the stock platter though.

Fantastic, you're the man!

Yup.. the Bifrost/Lyr drive all of them pretty well.  Had the HD650 and it was nice with the Lyr.  Hooked up the LCD2 to the Bifrost/Lyr at a HeadFi meet and it was outstanding.  Just picked up the HE500 today and it's pretty amazing with the combo. Going to take a while to break in.  Honestly, if you have the HE500, skip the HD650 and go for the LCD2.  Of all three, I think the HD650 would get the least love.  Just my opinion.

Everyone has such neat and clean setups. Me... not so much.

 

 

1000

headphones: Grado SR325is, Grado HF-1, Beyer COP

amps: Nuforce DAC-100 and HAP-100

other stuff in picture: alligator clips, tweezers, screwdriver, mini screwdrivers, post it notes, opamps, cables, empty padded envelopes, tin of bandaids

just outside the picture: a multimeter (I was measuring the outputs on the amps)

 

 

cheapest headphone stand possible an empty cd spindle, with a twist tie holding it to a stack of boxes

My glorious headphone stand composed of an empty cd spindle hanging from a twist tie wedged between some boxes. Oh yeah, and a Brainwavs HM3. Behind it: an envelope with miscellaneous earpads, another bag with miscellaneous cables, a computer speaker, water bottle, and some extra bubble wrap. Above it: a mysterious box labelled MISC PARTS. I don't even remember what's in the box anymore. I'm a little afraid to look. Next to the mystery box are... more mystery boxes. Unlabelled. Zounds!

I've always believed that chaos on the outside means an ordered mind. A need for order on the outside means chaotic mind.

In the picture above: JDS Labs O2+ODAC combo, Toshiba SD-3960 DVD player (which is also an excellent CD player), Pure i-20 iPod Dock and DAC/Transport, iPod Classic 6th gen 120GB loaded with ALAC tracks and playing John Coltrane’s Blue Train into my HD-600s. Oh, and a Seagate FreeAgent 500GB external hard drive and a box of kleenex but those aren't related to the setup, of course.

 


 

And in case you're curious about what's above the setup...

 

 

Because yes, I am a massive nerd. tongue.gif

Living in a mess means that there's a whole lot you're having to keep track of in your head for no good reason. "Where did I leave _______" just doesn't happen here.
Everything has its place, and if it's not being used, it goes back where it belongs.
I can't sit back and really relax and enjoy the music if the place is a mess.

Messy people are either lazy, or they own too much stuff.
