Hey all, been lurking on this forum for almost a year now, but finally decided to join the community. So here are some of the gear I have right now.
Source: HTR Music Streamer II+ USB DAC
Amp: Little Dot MkIII with M8100/CV4010 upgraded driver tubes, a pair of Voshod 6ZH1P-EV is also coming in a few days
Headphones: Beyerdynamic DT990 600ohms
Source: Ipod classic or HTC Evo that I use to stream music
IEMs: Westone 3, Ultimate Ear Super.fi 5 Pro
I also have the Fiio E7 and E9 combo which I originally used to drive the DT990, but found out the setup is a not quite good enough for the cans' potential. So I am planning to get rid of them, along with my trusted (but a little bassy) Westone 3, which is just sitting around gathering dust now.
The setup I have for the DT990 is pretty much perfect for the moment, but I just find the mid a little recessed and not quite as resolved as I would like. I listen to a wide range of music from classical all the way to trance/electronic. The thing I really like about the current setup is the punchy but accurate bass and the clear treble, which can be a little too much sometimes, especially on some of the poorly mastered electronic recordings.
So here is the question: what should I upgrade next? I am thinking of saving up for the Beyerdynamic T1, which should go along with my Little dot MkIII. Or maybe the LCD-2, but that probably require me to upgrade amp also. Don't think the MkIII has enough power to drive the LCD-2.
Any suggestion of what should I get? I should be able to get quite a bit of money back from selling some of my current gears, so I will be alright spending no more than $1200.
Thanks in advance!
