You can order a BHSE and a GSX mkii in less than a year? biggrin.gif

Do you still have your stax? Or have you completely settled on the TH900 + GSX-Mk. 2?

Here is the rig in it's current form.

I see that we both have an Archetype stand....same one I think except mine is cherry wood. I ordered an additional shelf for it last week and now I love the extra space.

Great equipment stands. I also like that adding a shelf is simple. I have the subwoofer for my Focal computer speakers on the bottom shelf.

Just goes to show it's all about enjoying your music, not having the most high-end rig smily_headphones1.gif Nevertheless, I still wanna upgrade again biggrin.gif but cables have provided me a method a improving the sound with smaller investments.

It nearly looks like you're "Bi-amping" with the Decs. normal_smile%20.gif

I sold off both previous setups - that pictured setup is all I have now (well except for a few more headphones). So I essentially went from a $10K+ electrostatic system at the beginning of the year to an "average" ~$500 dynamic headphone and portable CD player right now. (Not mentioned before was my high-end CD player, the Plinius CD-101, also now sold off.) So I gained about $9K back yet didn't lose much sonic satisfaction with my setup either.

It seems I keep following you.  Because I've got some upcoming changes to my rig, I've been looking into racks lately, and the Archetype is winning so far.  I've been thinking 1x 5 tier and 1x 3 tier.  They even make bookends that'll make it perfect for holding LP's.

 

Next I'll be trading my LCD's for HD800's (not likely) biggrin.gif

 

edit: I just noticed you got a Mac Mini wink_face.gif

I sold off about $5k in headphones (mostly dynamic flagships) and about $3k in related equipment for a setup with vintage equipment and a pair of Mad Dogs, so I can echo that sentiment.

And it looks like you're going to sell of your AD2000's as well? So what headphones are you actually gonna stick with?

I'm trying to sell the AD2KX, not the regular 2K which I'm keeping.

Interesting. What differences do you hear between the two models?
