I'm now thinking that this is a clever marketing ploy by the geniuses at MartinLogan to empty their warehouse to avoid paying taxes on unsold inventory.

He's ONE OF US NOW!!!!

Had a(nother) great listen last night: stock Mikros 90, Pipeline ET-4 cable, CBS JAN-5692/6SN7 (brown base) driver tube.  Really nice combination with the Tung-Sol 6SN7GTB power tubes--better than I remember with the Raytheon 6SN7GT.

 

Beautifully resolved midrange with the 5692, and great layering.  Al Martino's vocals were "perfect".  I tweaked one of my Stevie Wonder discs with Auric Illuminator.  Could readily hear the increased resolution and smoothness with the MLs.  ["Part Time Lover" on In Square Circle was still almost insufferably treble-some, though.]  Will definitely maintain a stock set of these fine headphones, in addition to the Maxx/Lors collaborative "HYPERBASSED" version for heavier listening.

 

The Mikros 90 need ample break-in and they warrant/merit/deserve your top gear.  IMHE, they close the gap and supersede other headphones more quickly when on top flight gear, gear capable of mining the ML's hidden jewels.

Verdict:

IMHO, Pipeline ET-4 a better performer--and a better bargain--than the FiiO RC-MH1.

This is going to be my first serious headphone top buy, I'm torn between this and nvx xpt100 I have no amps or cables or anything to add. My music is mainly about highs and mids than bass
