Let's turn this statement into one of the ten commandments of the martin logans lounge!
1. THOU SHALL NOT JUDGE THE MIKROS POTENCY WITHOUT ATTEMPTING TO PAIR IT WITH YOUR AVAILABLE SOURCES (and trust these headfiers' recommendations on a good source.)
Thanks for providing an example, that PS looks mighty fine, now if only I had the monies. I probably will with ebay, as I can sell my re700s there.
And you also made a good point with them being musical, they're not like other headphones that contain fatiguing (or prominent) mids or highs.
The GCHA's foil, IMHO, is in its roll-off at the upper HFs. I want that shimmer from cymbals and that unlimited sense of air that comes from the uber treble. The PS has KILLER Bass and luscious mids, though.
Am holding out for a Lehmann Black Cube Linear for a suitable SS match with the MLs.
Am listening to a custom-made KMF [Kent M. Faqua] SS headamp in my office at the moment and it sounds very nice. Might take it home and run it with a better source and hear what happens.
