I’ve noticed over the last few years, especially since buying an iphone that I don’t listen to music properly anymore. On my iphone or computer I might have +$300 headphones on but I’m really not listening, I’m to busy swiping and left-clicking.

 

I have more of a traditional listening station setup. My gear faces a wall in the living room and fortunately we don’t have a TV or computer in that room. If there was one I’m thinking that I might miss that opportunity of getting lost-in-the-music.

a few reasons, I find new music with headphones on the computer, plus I don't like plain listening all the time(I already zone out too much lol), I find my music has the ability to set my mood through out the day so I keep my set up with me as much as possible

 

And due to being a student, a laptop has to be the most portable way to enjoy my music everywhere I go

I do that a lot. I make it a priorty to listen to music for one hour everyday. Just laying in my bed, listening to the music and only the musicbiggrin.gif

Yep, I'm trying to find a nice CD player. Any suggestions? My dad is getting a Rega RP1 for Christmas, so I'm pretty pumped for that. But, vinyl are pretty expensive therefore, CD's are much more conveinent.

Don't write them off, they're bad ass.  I can think of a lot of well regarded phones or IEMs these could displace.  

 

Now...if only they were more comfortable.

Definitely.  I've moved away from computer based set ups for the past year for the same exact reason.

Couldn't help but noticing that you lived in Westchester County.

Glad to see that there are some other head-fi members from my area.

 

Any ideas yet where you are going to go with your next upgrade?

I just bought the Resonessence Labs Invicta DAC, which can play music off a built-in SD card reader, so that's one of them.  And the other, which will feed into the Invicta as a transport, is the Cambridge 350C I posted a picture of.

Nice man. Yea, New York is a hot bed. I wish I had gone to that meet in White Plains a while back.

I'm gonna go for the Matrix M-stage (classA opa627ap) and I'm not sure what headphone to go with yet. I've been considering a few options all under $400

Well, I've had it for all of one day, but it seems fine so far. Analog output isn't too shabby and it'll be fine for occassional stand in duties when necessary (like now). I bought it because the transport mehanism's supposed to be half decent, so if it plays my CDs properly, without breaking, then I'll like it.
