I'm new to the site, and an up and coming audiophile! Though I am already an avid music lover.
Ive been doing as much research as possible, narrowing down my preferences, and learning the terms.
The great sound of tubes is what I'm after! Ive decided to pickup a LD MKII. Its in my price range, and will leave around >250$-300$ for a set of cans. Of course if I could spend a little less it would be great, but would possibly spend a little more if it makes a difference.
My input will mainly be from my turntable, but I will also be using my computer sound card as well. I listen to a wide range of music: metal, rock, bluegrass, trance type electronic, prog rock, grunge. Well I'm fairly partisan in the metal department!
Some of the bands I listen to are: Pink Floyd, TOOL, Mastodon, The allman brothers, old and in the way, sabbath, phaseone, alice in chains.
I appreciate any input, I understand this may be a tall order!
