I know pelican makes a great bomb proof version but for just carrying it and storing it I'd like something slimmer and easier to handle. 

 

Any suggestions?

Yep...this is a good one. I've had it since Frank I turned me on to it last year. The second track, Black Night, is one of my reference/test tracks. Oh that bass is just delicious.

Reg a ref cd meaning red book. I can highly recommend
A count Basie disk. It's on Pablo records
It's kansis city shout
A pic of Basie on the cover
It's has clarity and details with dynamics
It also is great music with legendary people on it.
Eddie clean head being one of them. Ina really good DAC the cymbal brushing a are just fantastic
It's a must have to anyone.
If someone wants I can list some DSD as well

Yes, I would appreciate that. Especially if you have any more recommendations of great sounding jazz albums.

Ok I am going out now. I will do something when I get back.
I have learned to listen and like music I never would have liked before based in great SQ
it opened up my genre plenty. I know do anything.
If you like cat Stevens the DSD from acoustic sounds of tea for the tiller man is cool as well
Post later.

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!
