Does anyone know of any stores, old or new, that carry a good selection of high-end stuff? Let me be clear, I've been to B&H and most of the popular audio stores in NYC. They all carry the typical stuff--grado's, sennheisers...B&H has a decent selection of some other brands but all hooked up to a terrible amp and a terrible source. Also, at most of these places, the only really "high-end" pair they will ever carry is the Sennheiser HD800 or Grado's top offerings, but I haven't seen anyone with the T1, or stuff from companies like Audeze, HiFiMAN, Stax, etc. In all the audio stores, headphones are an afterthought. Are there any truly great headphone places out there with a good selection of quality high end stuff?
Amps too. Woo Audio's website says "Finely Crafted in New York" yet I haven't seen any woo amps at any audio store here, all the dealer's on their site are in Asia and Australia--what gives?
