Oh, we call that a mini bar.

Apologies for the lack of photography skills and the lack of decent camera equipment. You get the idea tho--this is what sits next to my computer desk. I'm wearing my HD 650s, which is why they aren't in the picture. My D7000s are at work, mated with an ALO PanAm. (Great combination, by the way!)

^^ Methinks your source and the amp deserve a bit better phones :) 

post #9965 of 19183

I'd have the D7000 at home and perhaps, one of the other two at work. Okay, for the sake of full disclosure rolleyes.gif I own the bad boys...

Except I work in close proximity to other people, so open headphones aren't ideal for work. Otherwise I totally would, because the D7000 is my favorite. However, I think I do almost enjoy it more with the PanAm than I do the Phonitor--the resolution and clarity isn't anywhere near the same level, but man, I've never heard a better pairing for hip hop and electronic music.

 Believe me, it's a daily struggle to not pull the trigger on something like an HD800 or one of the Audeze models.... maybe once the wallet has some extra padding I will. Though I shouldn't be in too big of a rush, because honestly, both the 650 and the K701 sound fabulous from the Phonitor anyways.

Maybe buy a dt880 to complete the trio? Shifts your attention from 1000+ headphones, and should make a good compliment to your senn, akg

Those are great headphones. I'm listening to them, as I write, on my Mini Torii SEx.

I find it outright ridiculous that, in a GALLERY thread, people apology for posting what they think is a low quality picture, while 90% of the other posts are text only. You don't see many people excusing themselves for not posting a picture, so why should you excuse a low quality one? At least you posted a picture, thanks.

I'll try to remember to snap a picture of my work setup tomorrow. It will be of similarly poor quality, but Kim is right. At least it'll be a picture. ^^

I've considered it, though these days I'm leaning more towards selling the K701 or the 650 and putting that money towards one of the 1000+ headphones. Probably an Audeze if the 650 goes, or an HD800 if the 701 goes. Though ideally I'd like to hold onto them just in case the differences between them and the upgrades are extremely slight and not justifiable in price to me.

I think you'd be pretty much pushing about the full potential out of those K701's using that Phonitor, assuming you have a high quality source input. I have to agree with Jude while ago when he made a video review on the Phonitor's + HD800 combination, it truly sounds quite unique with a lot of depth and realism compared to any other high end SS/tube amp I've tried, built, owned, auditioned. Heard a small setup at a Jaben's here in the CBD, think it was a Marantz CD player looked like the CD5300 or something > the Phonitor > Stock HD800 13XXX serial + a McIntosh test CD, one of the classical pieces it was playing provided a realistic and deep sound and detail retrieval that my B22 has never provided for me.

D7000s with the Phonitor or PanAm? I need to look at this combo...
post #9973 of 19183

General consensus seems to be that the Phonitor is one of the best amps for the HD800, period. It's certainly what I'm leaning toward at the moment--that said, I'd say that a good half (probably more) of my music collection probably wouldn't necessarily play nice with the 800s, which is why I'd wanna hold onto the 650s, or eventually get an Audeze or HiFiMan to complement the 800s. Almost everything sounds good on the 650, no matter how poorly recorded lol. Reviews of the Audeze phones when paired up with a Phonitor are decidedly mixed, however. Some people praise the pairing, others bash it. Oh well. Back to the topic--we need moar pictures!
