Thanks for the helpful info, Can you please elaborate on:
"I don't know if the HD800 would play nice with the Duet though."
What setup do you recommend--> out from an AirBook using high quality 24 Bit FLAC files?
I am not partial to any specific brand or the KRK, however I do own a set of KRK VXT8 & Exposé, and have had very good results form them. Very impressive playing quality vinyl RIPs compared to my friends 20K setup, that in my opinion was not as nice or FAST & Clean" in transient response, It lacked the overall "WOW…" A good test I did was with a Michael Jackson vinyl rip, very clear separation of the vocals and instruments, well balanced and voice coming from you dead center, almost like he was in the room. Same effect with many other well made recordings, this may be due to the close field, but what ever it is, it can almost give you a Binaural effect, something that my friends 20+k system simply does not do.
Any recommendations on a good set of headphones is welcome, BOTH in LOW COST CATEGORY, and the High Cost, because as you may see from My website, I spend a lot of time in places Like Cambodia & Thailand, and always hesitate to travel with expensive gear. enzoberetta.com
