Here's an overhead shot of my all battery-powered Concero > Bushmaster MkII > MG3 > HD800 rig and a two-part MOV file, just for fun!  

I'm absolutely thrilled with the way this sounds...

If these don't play correctly in your browser, right-click and save to your hard drive, then double-click to play (requires Quicktime).

The song is Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood, performed by Meshell Ndegeocello, from the album A Dedication to Nina Simone.

I just realized I have yet to post my current drivers-close-to-ear setups! Well here are my only two headphones, just received the Beyer DT250 pads for the V6's, seriously get these pads if you have the V6's, they're incredible. These V6's actually make really good portable cans, love the sound from them, absolutely incredible. I'm in the process of selling the X10 IEMs, so these are my new out of the house can. The Grados have earned themselves a permanent spot in my collection, these walnut cups really are something else. I can see myself still reaching for the Grados 10+ years from now no matter whether or not I've earned my Audezes or what have you. Now THAT gents is true love wink.gif

I'm betting an audio store near you will have one on demo! For such a little amp it kicks out serious sound. My Tannoy floorstanders certainly sound like a cinema in movies and for music they're really well composed and detailed. I'm using the USB connection on this :)

i use the same speakers, and they are pretty good for their size. i think the eq on these are absolutely amazing

Sweet.  How's the new Matrix Mini-i?  is the amp powerful enought to do justice to the LCD's? Would you characterize the amp section as warm, neutral, bright? I had the original at one point and still have a sweet spot for it.

Okay, we see it handles DXD but I'm wondering what our fellow member was listening to at the time...

Three are two Matrix Mini-i's - there new and the 'New Mini-i Pro' which does DSD/DXD and the 'New Mini-i' without DSD/DXD. If the headphone amp section is really good, I'd seriously consider the non-pro for a simple bedroom system.

I will be posting a review of both of them soon. Got some details to iron out first. Both units are good with favoring synergies that differ, though.

I'm going to guess he'll prefer the v200 with the HD800 (based on my experience with the Soloist and T1 - which wasn't warm enough for my tastes, but some people like that paring.)

the most satisfying moments are those when you find components that matched let each other express in a unique way where each of the components feel enhanced, and any thought about existing limitations is wiped away by the enlightening sensation of awareness that changing anything will irreversibly erase that unique experience of listening pleasure

 

having both, the burson conductor and the violectric v800/v200 combo, makes the hd800 and lcd3 much more valuable, experience enhancing and pleasing, that apply the other way around and for each component as well

 

feeling like removing any of the components will make all the other lose in that regard

 

each combination completes itself in a unique way

 

realizing the virtual infinity of excellent and unique matches that there are, the search for the one "best", "more capable", "perfect for me" setup feels just like a limitation to the immense pleasure such pieces of art can provide us

 

ideally would be to just keep adding to it, however we all realize such pieces of art do not grow on trees, luckily one can trade in for something that will ultimately add to the pleasuring experience more that it will subtract

 

that said my relationship with the current ensemble is still in a phase of very fast advancing development, a very enlightening one that is... and increasingly pleasing...
