Hey, cracking open headphones and mucking around with them is easy. Commercial amps are a bit tougher... I wouldn't be surprised if it used some kind of integrated chip in there or was all soic stuff (ugh I hate soldering smt stuff).

 

And just to stay on topic, here's a pic of current messy desktop...

 

edit: or the image uploader is being buggy. I'll try again later.

I always shared my grandfather's philosophy; "If your speakers [headphones] suck, it doesn't matter how good your amp is."

O Ok, I never listen to that stuff so you might be right haha

My last audition of the ES7s out of a Luxman amp didn't sound so great. Very detailed (the K01 feeding the Luxman helped a lot with that) but a bit too much in the mids. I liked the KEF LS50s better.

 

Anyhow, I'm running out of rack space today. Unfortunately it will be half cleared out of the best bits next month.

Very nice and clean there Amos, you need some HPS-2 stands for those Stax to apply the finishing touches. :D

I keep saying I'm done spending money on my headphones for a while (it's sucking funds away from my PC upgrading sickness) but then people like Currawong post things like this and I feel the urge coming back.  Now I'm feeling a need to get a pair of TH900 and a more powerful amp.

I just got a big kick-up in income, and I'm facing the same situation now. I keep moving up and down the ladder now.

This is my current setup before I pack it away at the end of the month:

 

 

 

 

Was primarily setup for gaming but headphones and associated equipment have slowly taken over.

I have one. I had one of the old plastic stands but it was dropped and broke :(

Symphones Magnums (325is with aluminium chambers and the custom driver). They are incredible out of the Studio Six and give the 'stats a solid run for their money. I think I'd need different tubes to get the best results out of the HD-800s.

Ah the discontinued HPS-1's that originally came with the LNS and Omega flagships back in the days. I had 4 of them (only 2 now). Why not get the plastic replaced and then slap a Stax sticker on the bottom?

My workplace M/M setup:

 

 

(not pictured: (over ear?!) Senn Momentums, streaming awesomeness into my ear canals during picture time!)

 

The Princess approves... :wink_face:

Awesome! Do you feel like you have enough volume play with the Momentums out of the baby Schiits? Never tried them out of it, but all of my 32-ish Ohm small, full sized headphones didn't have too much volume play due to the gain. And that was with 12db attenuators.
