Its fantastic. I think it has a great sound that really matches the Grados nicely. It really helps the bass out, but also keeps the highs just where I like them. It also sounds great with my PortaPros when I am just using the amp feature on the go.

Pictures aren't the best quality.

Nice towel hanger cum headphone stand...I happen to have the exact same one - I found it at HomeSense. I think I'll hang some paper rolls too so my ESW9s don't get any nasty ridges in the headband.

How/can does the udac drive the D5000s just by itself (not with the e9)?

You must try the donut shaped pads, the ones with the holes in them.  The sound is so much more open and detailed without all that foam in the way.

You're saying I should kramer mod the pads, or should I get bowls?

I like the quarter modded HD414 pads. they cost $5 and I prefer the sound to bowls.

Get the bowls, save you current pads just incase you don't like the sound or the fit.

Here is my "Getting back to Basics" rig.  Or as my roommate calls it, "His new SP Extreme Platinum/HRT/Cardas Rig".

An iPod feeding AIFF files through an ALO iPod dock, Cardas Quadlink 5-Cs, into a Schiit Asgard and Cardas 702s.

 

 

Power is cleaned and provided by the PS Audio Duet passive conditioner and Pangea power cables.  (this is the bottom shelf of the above rack)

And yes my pictures are mirrored.

Being a noob, I don't totally get this. What do you mean by "power is cleaned"?

It's another one of those "I can hear the difference, I swear" type things. It's the same with cables and burn-in and what-not.

I actually don't know myself.... kinda.  It has to do with cleaning the power so that any negative attributes it may have coming from the wall are cought and removed before they enter your power supply.  Think of it like boiling water before you cook with it in the wild.  It was water before you boiled it, now it'll just be better for you.
