Thats a very elegant rig, shes got nothing to complain about there! 

 

How does your vintage stuff fair against your Mjolnir?

Your right!  This was the conversation when she got home:

 

 

Me:  "I'm surprised you haven't commented on the new addition to the bedroom."

 

GF:  "I didn't even notice"

 

Me:  "I added another amp to my rack."

 

GF:  "I don't care what you do with your rack."

 

Me:  "That's good because I posted pictures of it online."

 

GF:  "Just as long as you don't post pictures of mine..."

 

 

As far as the vintage gear is concerned, the Kenwood is my favorite amp I have ever heard with my HD-650.  It compliments the smooth signature that I love.  The Schit blows the others out of the water with the LCD-2.  The Akai sounds good, but doesn't get much use and the Optonica pairs really well with my Klipsch kg 3.5s.

Hahaha she's got a good sense of humour!

I got a similar reaction last night.  My wife came home after shopping and I dragged her upstairs to my office to see the new Woo WA7 I just picked up from the Post Office.  All I got was "You dragged me up here just to see that?" Turned and walked away. Whew.. i'm good for now.:veryevil:

Good thing you did not tell her what it cost.... smily_headphones1.gif

Oh, he will have. $79.99 but he got it for $50 in the sale ;)

She saw that the Bifrost/Lyr was gone.. "Upgrading again?" Rhetorical question.  She's a doll and lets me indulge within reason. Guess I shouldn't tell her about the new Canon D70 I picked up today:veryevil: Traded in some stuff to get it so she won't notice. Pics coming soon with the D70 :cool:

This...............is....................too.................funny.  Mostly because I use this type of misinformation.

Alright so about 90% of my rig is now done.  I am still in the process of building a USB and interconnect cable but other than that I don't this will change at least in the next two months :tongue:

Update for my simple and cheap headphones. Just sold my He400 and bought the Philips Fidelio X1 for 296 usd. Fiio E17 somewhere below the laptop cooler...


Sound wise, bit too much bass and not enough treble. Hope it improves with change cables and burn in, or maybe I'm just used to HE400 sound signature... Bit regret I didn't take the Audio Technica AD1000X for 350usd, but that must wait for another year or two...
