Thanks. Will still need to move things around. Final version may look entirely or partially different. And that's okay, just means new pix! :normal_smile :

Beautiful setup, how do you like the TH600? I am looking for a good pair of closed-back headphones, and i was thinking about the Fostex TH600

I love them! They are semi-open though, so not the best isolation. They have a bit of a U shape with sub bass emphasis, mids slightly recessed, and then a wonderful treble presentation. Excellent clarity/resolution and instrument separation, and they're quite open sounding. I consider them to be a great all-rounder for traversing multiple genres during the day.

I do too. I have gone so far as using electrical tape to block all LEDs and stuff. Low light if only necessary for me as I like to "decouple" my vision from my ears. It really improves my hearing for me.

How do you find the Aune amp with the Fostex? Do you find the amp "warm" enough to bring out the Fostex mids?
I'm using iFi iCAN to drive my TH600 and HD800 but I do find them a tad cold and thinking of a tube amp to add some warmth.
Thanks

I read somewhere i think here, that the Amp section of this is a SS and the Tube is used by the DAC side, so not sure if that would be what you are looking for as far as more warmth.

Someone might chime in that actually has it though, i only heard it for about 15 mins or so at a meet that i put on with a set of RS2's and Ps500's that did sound pretty good though.

Some designers/manufacturers have gone plain mad! With LED placement, size and brightness screaming "Look at me, look at me!!!" As if the single piece of gear :rolleyes:will be the only one in the room.

The Aune is new for me, so take this FWIW, but I find my Project Starlight to be a much better pairing for the TH600. The Aune's tube buffered DAC doesn't seem to bring out the sound of the tube nearly as much as the Starlight, which is a hybrid tube amp. I would strongly recommend the Starlight.

Thank so much for your reply.
I'll google Project Starlight for more info

Thank you very much for your response ethan7000! i`m sure this is a great allround headphone and what i am looking for except  the low isolation.
