Bass is definitely amazing on HE-400 no question about that, but mids just don't do it for me compared to HD650, I think it's because HE-400 are more laid back, I found out my preference is leaning towards forward headphones and I can't turn them too loud because treble on them would destroy my ears.

 

There is just something magical about well amped HD650. Can't get enough of them with Schiit Lyr.

 

Yeah the HD650 is like a sleeping giant when underamped, glad you're enjoying them.

Google Rega Ikea Lack and you will hear some different opinions. You can use something between the TT and table to damp, but just don't mass load.

It is based on a different theory that heavy isolation bases and plinths store vibrations and then retransmit to the TT.

This why Rega bases are light and rigid and not heavy or suspended. It's just a different take.

Supposedly the Lack are the only Ikea product made this way as they are "paper" filled and not fibre or particle board.

Might only work with Rega style TTs and not at all with more sophisticated plinth designs.

Just posting my bed-rig here, because it's quite uncommon.

Dude I think I'm digging the creativity here more than some of the higher-end systems we see passing through here. This is truly unique! :D

The CMOY box is epic beerchug.gif

 

What's the anime character painted on the box btw? Reminds me of Hayate in his cat outfit

The headphone is the Spider Moonlight Monitor. The DAC/amps are (from top to bottom) the Benchmark DAC2 HGC, Mytek Digital STEREO192-DSD DAC, and the Fostex HP-A8C. All three DACs are 32-bit/192kHz-capable and DSD-capable too.

Sorry, I'll edit my post to make that clearer.

Are you doing a DSD-capable DAC shootout? :)
