^That would be the ideal! :beerchug:

Thanks!  The MMG's sound particularly great with any acoustic + jazz + classical tracks I throw at them.  One of these days I'll stop buying speakers + headphones and get a proper source :rolleyes:.

P.S.

It does look like a good heater for my room though~~~

-20C would be 15 degrees warmer than here!

On New Year's Eve I was downtown to celebrate outside for 3 hours straight... at -30 deg C! When I got back, nothing better than a listening session with your hands over a Class A Tube amp!

Other than the soundstage and its comfort scale, I found the HD800 to be a tad boring.
FINALLY!! someone who agrees! I personally loved the LCD2.2 more for that reason.

tongue.gif, I also couldn't and refuse to deal with the LCDs 'wall of sound'.

It's been said too many times, "it's all just preference really".

Looking good!  Sadly my MMGs are in storage at the moment but they are are amazing speakers especially with small combo jazz.  How are those Blumenstein speakers?

Finally got my setup properly organized!  I think it actually is sounding better now too! LOL!

Thanks morserotonin.  I love the Blumensteins!  They produce a very rich/coherent sound and image very well.  I also love that I can power them with my little 3W SET amp.  IMO they don't handle transients as well as the MMG's but they deliver a very musical/involving experience.

 

Sidenote, we met at the LA Headfi meet and you campaigned hard for me to get Magnepans.  So in a way, you are partially to blame thank for my MMG purchase.  :beerchug:
