Wow, you do need some stands.

Does angling the A5+ make much of a difference?

I agree with Byrnie and jaywillin.  Big improvement if you're using them on a desktop.

Although I don't have the A5+, I can say angling for nearfields makes a huge difference in perceived sound. This is due to the driver being pointed more directly at your ear, so your outer ear will pick up a greater amount of detail from the drivers. To compare, think of wearing your headphones about 1" down your ear opposed to where they are supposed to be.

Agreed and pointing them toward you helps also.

The aural nirvana department of Ice Station Zebra.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Missing is the SL-10 turntable and the phono stage which are both out for a servicing.

Still need to find some decent isolation pads for the speakers.

Keep meaning to upgrade the Toshiba System 15 stack but I love its looks and frankly, haven't found anything that beats the sound for such a small form factor and price.

I've owned other newer DACs but always prefer the ECD1 ... so far.

The next step in the journey will, I think, be a pair of Fostex TH900s to compare against the DX1000s.

Very nice! All your under-desk equipment looks like it probably gets quite hot in such a small space, though.

No. No heat issues.

I was initially wary but there is a surprising amount of air circulation around this area. The component that produces the most heat is the WA2 but that has ample room all round. The tightest squeeze is the System 15 Mini-stack but one of the design elements is the power amp bodies are cast aluminum and are about 50% cooling fins that vent sideways. That said, the amps produce very little heat and after over a year of use, I'm confident I have no heat issues.

 

Then again, on Ice Station Zebra, heat is almost never the issue.
