Never quite heard a headphone described that way.  I'll see the Audez'e guys in NY Thursday, and will point this out.  ROFL!

The band only stretches an insignificant amount to fit on the stand, and even less if I lengthen the pads down lower on the stand.

When I feel like I know that sound signature really well based on the setup...change one thing and listen for the difference. That's when I can hear and appreciate the subtle changes. 

Same goes for me. One reason I never get excited enough about a meet to attend is because I much better like spending a long time with equipment to hear the strengths, weaknesses, and differences between each one piece.

I agree also. I'm perfectly happy driving my MDs out of a uDAC2 at work all day (though the home setup obviously sounds a touch better).

Quoted by many including myself as a mini burson ha-160. I haven't heard an lyr or v-90 so I can't really tell ya how it compares to those two. The only portable out there that can touch is the triad lisa and that amp is way more desktoppy. I got mine used for $350 shipped and it was well worth it.

What do you call a "headphone" that only goes after the big and powerful?

Hmm, maybe the Congressman's mistress?

Wow lot of debate here on md's and lcd-2's and whether or not they require a fancy amp. Personally I think that they both def. change sound with different amps. However I would say that v-shaped cans as a whole, in my experience, are harder to match up and that their sound change between amps usually (but not always) is more dramatic. As far as tubes or ss I choose neither aha-120 all the way.

Discrete is actually solid state. Now that I am through being a pain:) What do you like about the 120?  How Portable is it? How long do you really get on a battery etc?

 

 I am in the market for a Portable discrete amp and this is on the short list.

That's pretty impressive but sounds a bit like hype. Does the AHA 120 have enough power to drive orthos with authority?
