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

 

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 :(

I think you need a bigger room. :wink:

 

I need a bigger apartment, or a house, or to get rid of a lot of stuff. Maybe a combination of all that!

Here's the latest incarnation. A bit messy.

Sweet.. I've spent the last coupe of days looking for transports.. had the original Rega Apollo at one point and just purchased the Rega DAC form my main AV system so looking at the new Rega Apollo just as a transport  (for my HeadFi sys) or if I can get one used, the Bel Canto CD3t.

Nice setup & running balanced.. Sweet!.. would love to try the HDVA 600 version someday as I already have an amazing DAC.

Codia. Someone on the forums discovered the maker, who is in Korea. After some email back-and-forth they are now listed on eBay. Since my local hardware store has the handy multiple-length shelving system which I'm using, the $6 Koss hangers work perfectly, with enough depth for the cables. These are the first headphones stands I've had other than Stax ones and the Sennheiser and AT plastic clamp ones.

Thanks for the head ups, I just found them on eBay, a little pricey but I like them. I think the Koss hangers offer a proper solution specially for cables. :beerchug:

It's not that long ago, (around 80 pages? :D), since I posted pics of my system which I at that time considered final. But I could not resist and was still upgrading some parts (unfortunately my X-Sabre had to be replaced with DA8).

 

 

As I mentioned I swapped Matrix X-Sabre with Yulong DA8 (black version). I don't consider that to be a real upgrade, it was just a necessary change (they are on the same performance level - but I liked X-Sabre a tiny bit more). In addition to that change, I upgraded my power cables - I only kept my Siltech SPX-300, the rest were upgraded (now I use XLO Signature 3-10 for amp and Shunyata Venom 3 to connect my mains filter).

 

I also went higher in power filtration - got brand new Shunyata Hydra Model-6. At first I wanted to get IsoTek Sigmas, my dealer had a 30% sale on it, but by the time I decided to finally get it, all of them were gone :( However, he recommended Model-6 over Sigmas even when Sigmas was on sale (normally Sigmas goes for 500€ more than Model-6) and he even offered me small (but not insignificant) discount for Model-6 + Venom 3 cable combo which I could not refuse. Only if it was available in black... ;)

 

And at last but not least, I made a cosmetic change - Rooms Audio Line FS Mahogany headphone stand - it is so freakishly beautiful. It is not cheapest, but it is worth every cent.

 

I really hope I am done with upgrades for quite some time, my bank account certainly does not need to get any slimmer :D But as I know myself, I will be scouting for new upgrades/additions in some (not so distant) time.

 

 

P.S.: Merry Christmas to all fellow head-fiers ;)
