@MickeyVee 

 

lol, I've seen you go from the HD650 to HD700 to HE500 and now the HD800 :)

 

Are the HD800 worth the money? Those might be my end game headphones one day in the far far future lol

post #16292 of 20234

Yup, you forgot the HE400, HD600 & HD25 that I've had and the Momentums I currently also own. :blink:

And yes, the HD800 are really worth it. I'm pretty sure that they're my end game so it's a matter of getting the supporting orchestration right. Maybe a complementary set of phones but at this point, I really don't fee the need. It's been a fun journey!

For this particular desk, I decided to go more compact, to free up space for other things. Being able to stack the KEF X300A Wireless speakers, Meridian Prime DAC/amp (and Meridian Prime Power Supply), and the AKG K812 (on its stand)...well, you can't get much more compact than that (in terms of the functionality squeezed into the footprint).

lol, I've seen posts here (not necessarily this thread) from a user who thought a TT can play both vinyl and cd's. You never know.

Jude, can you give us your thoughts on the K812 vs HD800 difference? Would be nice to get a credible thoughts on that matter.

New headphone stands arrived, so I cleared my desk and took a couple of shots. I ended up installing a bunch of larger hanger-knobs under my desk to make better use of the space too. Even still I had to use spare hooks to hold everything.

Indeed. Shine II with MX Browns. Usually my spare, I use a KBT Pure in my desktop rig.

Heck. That's a lot of audio gear in one spot. I find that stacking headphones on stands on top of things to be somewhat precarious though, had a few heart thumpers when I've accidentally knocked the stand and headphone onto the desk/floor.

Right on, I just ordered the Ducky Shine 3 in browns. Never actually tried the browns. I have 2 DS 3, one in reds and one in blues. I dont know what to expect with the browns in terms of feel, theres a huge difference with 10grams between the reds (40g) and blues (50g).

So a few photos (once again, sorry for a quality, don't have a good camera and I'm bad at photography...) of my current home rig:

 

 

Amazing set up; Sometime in my life I'd like to see how the WES compares with the Blue Hawaii on different headphones. My SR-009's are still lonely without an amp :(
