(Think rocking horse droppings and hen's teeth if you're not into Nikons).

 

Turned out the seller was a recently minted widow selling off her late husband's kit; upon hearing she was considering taking $50 for it, I told her she could easily get a couple of grand -probably more- for it on that big auction site.

 

She shrugged and said that she knew - her husband had left her a list with estimated values of all the pieces of kit. Turned out I had been the first who had told her what the real value was rather than trying to rip her off. "If you want it, it is yours for $50 - oh, and I'll throw in those lenses in the bag over there, too".

 

A couple of worn, but great lenses - a 35mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.4, 105mm f/2.5. I (almost) sh*t myself. I could've kissed her feet right there.

 

Six years later, I still send her Christmas cards.

 

 

Nice Story :wink:

Talisker matches well with the Audeze.  Maybe for the HD800 an Ardbeg would me my choice :beerchug:

-You really can't go wrong with anything from around that neck of the woods - most of my single malts are Islays, I really like the in-your-face presence of lots and lots of peat and smoke. The Talisker is also one of my favourites, though - much for the same reasons I like Islays. :)

 

Picked up a 57 North last time I was in Scotland. With a drop of water in it, it really opens up and is terrific company for any listening session.

I think the HD800's need something more delicate, more intricate.  Something that has a lot of layers; a very complex whiskey that takes a lot of time to discover.  A lot of people pass over the HD800's because they are too bright, so a Scotch that many might feel is initially dull or bland.  So a Glen of some sort :D 

 

But not your average Glen...

 

 

 

 

I've had several bottles of this stuff over the years and, a bit like the 800's, each one was a bit (actually sometime drastically) different.  It's just one of the those things.

Today got myself TEAC VRDS-10SE cd-player as an alternative digital source (main is MacMini (with line PSU) via USB) for my dCS Debussy DAC... IMO it looks quite nice in my rig and it's sound better than I expected, it will be interesting how it will sounds when I (not exactly I, I'm going to give this player to master on weekends) change stock not reblaceble power cord on AC inlet (and connect good power cord to it), and also change my lame cheap CANARE coaxial cable on something like Shunyata Cobra ZTron coaxial cable...

So here are a few photos of my current rig:

Nice.  Not familiar with Ardbeg.

 

The title of this thread begins with "Show us" and it would good if you would.

I've enjoyed the Balvenie 15 year with my music listening. So far it's been my favorite.

Thanks for the pic.  That's a superior can as you know.

 

Whatever the Ardbeg was, good riddance, ehh?

Not a big scotch drinker but a fan of the Signatory Vintage series and Laphroaig Quarter cask. Bowmore neither is available.
