Let's see how this cable compares with the Pipeline.

Tonight: the RCA 6SN7GT, smoke glass, goes into the Bada.  The Mikros 90 is a tube-roller's dream.

 

All together now: let's do the Martin Logan cheer:

 

M-A-R-T-I-N L-O-G-A-N!  M-A-R-T-I-N L-O-G-A-N!  M-A-R-T-I-N L-O-G-A-N!  RAH!  RAH!  RAH!

Trunks,

Go to your room.

No music.

No headphones.

Until you write--or yell--M-A-R-T-I-N L-O-G-A-N!  M-A-R-T-I-N L-O-G-A-N!  M-A-R-T-I-N L-O-G-A-N!  RAH!  RAH!  RAH! 100 times!

I think the Pipeline works well with the Mikros 90.  Stock cable by comparison is edgy in the treble, lacks focus/articulation in the bass, lacks clarity in the midrange and lags behind in coherency overall IMHO.

Well I live in a box so uh...that may be a bit difficult.  I might disturb the neighbors.  Last time that happened...well, that's how I ended up in the box...that and from buying too many headphones.  Whichever came first.

 

M-A-R-T-I-N L-O-G-A-N!  M-A-R-T-I-N L-O-G-A-N!  M-A-R-T-I-N L-O-G-A-N!  RAH!  RAH!  RAH! Times......99!

No glare, No "ear-splitting" sonics.  In fact, the disc sounded incredible, with attention to recording queues and a vibrant sense of 3-D space I had never heard before (the background vocals on "So Far Away" were haunting in their transparency and effusiveness).

 

Last night, I listened to Donovan's Greatest Hits--old, '60s, un-remastered Epic recordings.  They sounded very good, too, especially the bass detail and articulation which I had never really heard before, either.   

 

Once more, I am convinced that those who are experiencing sonic anomalies--like unbearable treble harshness--with the Mikros 90 have resolution issues with their associated gear.  Garbage in/garbage out.  I have said this already, but will say it again: the Mikros 90 will reveal everything, including your system's comparative weaknesses and strengths.  Unlike most other headphones, which may color the sound spectrum, "forgive" bad recordings and/or camouflage deficient source gear. the MLs tell you exactly what is there.  Look at my signature.  The MLs have replaced the HE-6 in my reference rig and I have absolutely no regrets at all.  

 

Every session with these reference class headphones is revelatory.  The ML's prowess at detail retrieval is the most complete I have ever heard: not just in rendering "low level" detail--I will call this "mechanical" detail (the textured stroke of Wes Montgomery's thumb across the guitar string, for example), but also in rendering subtle tonal hues/shading, enunciating fine dynamic contrasts, generating an interactive 3-D space and discriminating acoustical nuances as well.  For me, the Mikros 90's superb rendering of detail always manages to ultimately serve the musical core.  For me, a detail-oriented listener who is apt to stray into the "can't see the forest for the trees" way of listening, the MLs' primarily musical nucleus always keeps me on track.   

 

I understand that we all hear differently and that we all have distinct listening tastes and genre preferences.  And I am saying that, from my perspective, the Mikros 90 give the listener more of everything: the desirable and the undesirable.  They need at least good gear in front of them to begin to show their manifold capabilities.  If you are a "midrange-centric" listener, they are probably not for you.  If you don't insist on accurate, extended treble and bass, they are probably not for you.  If you want headphones that stuff every genre/recording into a bassy, "fun" envelope, the MLs are probably not for you.  If you don't wish to hear deeply into the recording details and thence extract the musical substance, these are probably not for you. 

 

Last night:

Joe Williams: "Essential Joe Williams" (Verve)

Donovan: "Greatest Hits" (Epic)

Emerson, Lake and Palmer: "Trilogy" (Shout Remaster)


Again Sir Pataburd speaks the truth and echos many of my feelings about the ML's, these are reference monitors, they will reveal the stinkers and the gems in your music collection.

The pipeline will need to be shaved down a bit, it will not fit right out of the box, I used a bench grinding wheel, and took of a bit then used some emery cloth to clean it up. Helpful hint, cover the gold tip with masking tape or shrink tube so you don't accidentally scratch it. I would even be willing to mod the cables for anyone, send them to me with a return postage label and ILL  hook you up.
