Greetings to all!
I have been in the audio hobby for some time, however, my focus has been purely in the world of two-channel audio reproduction. I recently had the pleasure of listening to a high-end headphone system for the first time and was in awe of the level of reproduction that was possible. Obviously headphone listening is quite different from traditional listening and some concessions are made. Despite this, I found that I preferred the headphone setup to my quite expensive HiFi system.
There is something more personal and involving to headphone listening. While I will miss some of the detail of my system, I am going to be selling off my speakers and amplifiers. I have recently moved and no longer have the space to do my two-channel system justice.
Fortunately, I am able to afford the very best in headphone reproduction (which is something I cannot say for the two-channel world). This should be an exciting journey and I am looking forward to learning from the seasoned members of this forum.
Just for information sakes, my first purchases will be the HD800s and a decent tube amp (probably around $2000). I feel this will provide a decent entry into the headphone world before I go too crazy into the high end.
