Custom build by Chris_himself and Headphone Lounge. It's just a cheapy as I don't really believe in cables yet. I just needed something balanced that had a good feel and appropriate length to it. It's a solid core silver with switchcraft black plugs with gold plated contacts and the fancier sleeving option forgot what it's called.

They don't sell the solid core cable anymore because it's really not a good idea to use for headphone cables. I've had mine break twice but they've fixed it at no charge. They only use stranded silver now (and it's a lot more expensive than solid core) which is much better for headphone use.

Thanks Maxvla,

I didn't want to get too spendy either

I'll definitely ask Chris, and see what he currently recommends

I don't know. I think your headphone stand will be putting constant, subliminal pressure on you to move up to electro-stats.

That's something I wouldn't mind ;)

You should see it in motion, especially in the dark.

I'm just wondering how do you guys plug in all your computers, amps, speakers, etc. Do you have enough wall sockets or do you use extensions?

 

I have quite a lot of electronics running through two extensions (5 socket extensions each) so you can imagine my worry regarding this. Good thing they have fuse protectors.

No extension cords for me. I just make sure whatever Power Conditioner I'm using has 10-12 receptacles. I make the decision to go Digital or Analog and unplug something if I must.

This is something I avoid speaking of and even posting a picture of. For me at least my desktop/laptop + all my audio gear if I plugged it into my powerboards all at once, I would be using 3 x 8 port powerboards (24 ports in total). Yes indeed a lot. 14 amplifiers (desktop and portables with dc adapters) and the rest is my desktop/laptop + few peripherals and a single halogen lamp and 2 spare ports just in case few friends come over and need to charge stuff up in my room. I charge my phones and portable mobile gear in my bedroom.

I would highly recommend the OP627 x 2 mod.

 

Makes it that much better. I just picked up the Lyr and I feel that both are good amps but the EF-5 just does some things better.

This is what I ordered

That's what i currently have as well. Smart thinking....had you got the other one you wouldn't have been able to properly close the top glass part.

 

Putting that one in is very easy...the hard part is taking out the OP275 that's currently in yours right now. I wasn't able to take it out without destroying it. Just be very careful not to break the pins..if you have some small clippers i would recommend trying that first.

Is Chris the one who lives just blocks from Koss in Milwaukee? I remember talking about Koss HQ with somebody; I think it was him.

Awesome setup, nmxdaven! What little statue is top of gear stack next to the Stax? Also, how's the EF-5?
