New member saying "Hi"

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm a longtime lurker, but a recent member and I thought I should introduce myself.

I'm 28 years old and I live in a small village near Amersfoort, the Netherlands.
I grew up in an audiophile family where my dad was always saving up for the next upgrade to his equipment / cabling / speakers. As such, I got bitten by the hifi bug in my early teens and stayed with it ever since.
However, it wasn't until a year ago that I discovered the world of headphone hi-fi.

I started a year ago with a set of Sennheiser 558's, bought a FiiO E12 for them and rockboxed my iPod. A couple of months ago I also purchased a pair of Momentums and today I became the proud owner of a Little Dot Mark III (my first tube amp ever). I'm currently saving up for an upgrade from the 558's (650?). As you can see, Head-Fi has already made a significant dent in my wallet. biggrin.gif

Thanks for all the info you all have provided already. I'm looking forward to learning even more from all of you in the future.

Currently a set of KEF Q11's and a set of KRK RP6 G2's. Until recently also a set of hand built Hepta's (old set from my dad) which I gave to my brother in law. For amps I have a Marantz PM 7004, a NAD 302 and an American Audio V6001 (not hi-fi, but amazing dynamics for rock / pop due to its raw power; 1260W RMS per channel @ 8 Ohm). I currently use the Marantz with the KEFs.

You should use some of that nice amping for some hifiman planars. 


Have just become an owner of speakers myself. Nothing fancy, some audiovector c2 floorstanders (danish brand), my dac, and an emotiva mini x. That setup cost me around a grand. Yet, it sounds surprisingly good, also compared to a lot of other setups I have heard. The imaging and staging is just superb.
