If you like cat Stevens the DSD from acoustic sounds of tea for the tiller man is cool as well

Oh yeah. HD tracks is a great site. I have remain in light in 24/96k. To be honest, 24/96 is my favourite bitstream resolution. I like 24/192k, but it doesn't sound as warm when running the file format through my DAC. Sometimes ultra HD files can sound a little too polished and not realistic.

In theory I would disagree with your logic. 24/192 should be closer to analogue and thus should sound closer to the original recording. But in reality, I agree with you. 24/96 just sounds more musical to my ears...certainly warmer. The differences are small but there IMHO.

For the first time in many years I now only own one headphone. Don't need any others. 

 

In fact, I'd even go as far as to say - all other headphones are worthless. Kill all other headphones!! :veryevil:

 

All hail the mighty one!

Oh yeah, forgot that. I've even looked on ebay for something that you suggested. Nothing yet. I'm hoping for a Craiglist score soon.

I think I' m not far of the same point. I received a Beyerdynamic T1 Monday and I'm currently testing it but it will not stay at home for a long time.  My Ultrasone is gone and I've really no need of another headphone for my tastes and what I listen to usually.

As much as I love the HD800, every now and then I like to put other cans on just to appreciate the HD800s even more.

Agreed. The more I listen to other headphones or speakers , the more apparent the gap in quality becomes.

The only itch I have to 'upgrade' now is into stax land but that is a place I don't really want to go. It's a whole new level that my OCD can't cope with! Channel imbalance would literally drive me crazy.

I have the same feeling.

The Doug MacLeod download is fantastic.

The Sound Liaison studio master downloads are all 24/96 except one,which is 24/88.2. I think they are the best sounding files I have got for the HD800 together with some of the Reference Recordings.The sound of their albums is quiet similar to the Doug MacLeod you mentioned.

They all so give credit to the HD800 for being used for mixing and mastering. http://www.soundliaison.com/
