I have enjoyed the Van Halen high res set from HDTracks on these phones. Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds Live at Radio City is sublime with them. There are also several other links scattered throughout this thread that are good. Those are just a few that come to mind. I probably wouldn't have this phone as my only phone if you are primarily into rock, however.
Honestly, i think this may be your best work yet!
PF IX (and TG334) is on its way to me. :). Can't wait!
*hopefully I can appreciate its strengths. I listen to pretty badly mastered stuff, but I seem to have steel ears, so hopefully it won't bother me too much.
I thought you said you'd ordered the 1601SS not 1602SS (aka PF IX). Both 160X models are very forgiving of poorly mastered material. It's the FI-BA-SS which can be very revealing, so you should be okay. Prepare yourself for a sonic shock, though... maybe.
I found the X-G i have to not be forgiving of badly mastered/low bit rate. It sounds awful, also i use them with an O2 amp and do not find them bright at all. Review is almost complete.
This combo has gotten me through many cold nights in bed
Yea, apparently it sold out before my friend could get it. So I got the more expensive 1602 :D
