Looks excellent after the tidy-up! I see the Beyers for listening, but what headphones are you using with the CDJs? Just curious :P

Sennheiser Amperior.

Did somebody say old school portable rigs? I'm on the verge of starting a collection of those.

Wanted to buy a PCDP anyway. Couldn't resist this one. Bose PM-1

 

 

My soon-to-be-replaced Blackberry Trilobite 8530.

I'm delighted with them, best $299 I've spent in a long time...

Try to find a Sony wm 505 from 1988. Amazing!

WAV > Foobar 2000 (WASAPI event mode) > USB > Centrance DACMini CX > Decware ZSTAGE (with NOS 1956 Radiotechnique 12AU7) > Emotiva a-100 Mini-X (with 8 Wpc @ 50-Ohms) > Audeze LCD-2 rev.1 

 

The LCD-2 is directly connected to the Mini-X speaker terminals by cutting off the TRS plug of a stock Audeze cable and attaching deadbolt banana plugs.

 

The stock Mini-X 18AWG unshielded power cord has been replaced with Emotiva's 12AWG shielded power cord and a Pangea C14 o C7 adapter.

 

RCA interconnects are also by Emotiva.

 

My Burson Soloist is so for sale!  The bass extension and control are better with this rig, as is the dynamics - lots of slam, less laid back (with on stage vs. fourth-row seating).  I didn't care for how the T1 sounded with the Mini-X, but it's great with the LCD-2, which has really come to life with 8 Wpc into 50-Ohms.

 

The ZSTAGE adds some tube goodness and allows me to roll different tubes (with which to drive myself crazy), but the Mini-X without the ZSTAGE is still very satisfying, and a wee bit more resolving.

Excellent photos. Decware doesn't get much love around here. Nice to see something fresh wink.gif

Yeah, the ZSTAGE is a great way to tube-i-fy a SS rig.  Steve Deckert also offers the less expensive ZBOX - which is pretty much the same but without the 0- to 5-dB adjustable gain.

That first of two photos is deceptive due to the close proximity of a wide-angle lens.  The ZSTAGE isn't as tall as the Emotiva Mini-X, but yes, I was surprised when I first unpacked it.

I bought mine used from a guy in Canada - in part to avoid the three and a half month wait to get a new one!   rolleyes.gif

 

Here's a shot of the ZSTAGE innards (from the Decware site):

 

 

Check out the uninsulated solid copper ground bus that runs the length of the interior.  This thing is old-school clean!  It's spectacularly transparent - you can't hear anything but what your choice of tube brings to the sound.
