That's a Woo Audio headphone stand. I bought one several years ago directly from their web site.

Someone you really might want to have a listen to is Sara Gazarek in her album, Yours. You MUST give track 3, Amazing, a listen. Hmm... there doesn't seem to be an actual MV.

There's musical link here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=2eooz7YMLNI

You will hear how clean the piano keys sound. And of course the voice... so soothing and smooth...

Enjoy! atsmile.gif

Thanks for the tip. Great song. I'm going to hunt down some of her music.

That was a great review, and the comments on breaking in time line up straight with what everyone here has said, these things need plenty of break in to truly shine. But once your there, these cans are truly special.

Have you tried the K812 with the Mac MHA 100?

Saturday night K812 party going on, grooving on the classic by Oliver Nelson, Blues and the Abstract Truth SACD.
Yowsa! Kickin some serious jazz jams on the K812. Followed up with a phenomenal cd by the Louis Sclava Atlas Trio, Sources. More ECM Records Jazz exploration. Great for those seeking a more contemporary, unique approach to jazz today. This is really classic stuff, so google this or try Amazon. Modern jazz at its finest. Best of all, the K812 serves up all the grooves, grit and soul inherent in these tremendous performances.
Forgot to mention all this musical splendor served up nice and neat with a chilled bottle of Raymond Chardonnay, also highly recommended.

Not yet, but I plan to audition the ($4500) MHA 100 within the next few weeks.

I listened to the MHA100 at Brooks Berdan in LA several weeks ago. I heard it with a pair of Audeze LCX phones, and the combo was stunning. Creamy smooth, detailed and well balanced. That was the first time I've been impressed with the LCX. The Mac is gorgeous. I'm seriously considering converting my entire rig to the MHA100. My 2 channel speakers are powered, so I only need to route everything to the Mac and use the preouts for outputs. I could run my 3 HDMI sources directly to my HDTV, then simply run an optical out to the Mac.
My balanced SACD player would go straight in, with an option for sound to the speakers or to my K812. Best of all worlds in a compact, elegant solution. I emailed MacIntosh that they said this configuration should work fine. So.....
