Like seriously guys, like seriously...
Stax SR-009 and The Abyss seem to do alright with the weight.
Don't trust the blonde. What an uncomfortable listening position.
I think the guy in the corner is simply trying to ignore the people crowding around him In the zone is good! I'm gonna roll some RTC E188CCs in the Lyr, plug in the HE-500s and get in the zone myself
Well, we now know what wood the woodies are made of, teak! I don't know much about wood, but I think teak is a popular wood for outdoor use (especially on boats), which would mean it's durable and able to withstand humidity swings.
Teak is nice. I've got a lot of furniture my parents brought back from Taiwan (loooooooong ago), and for the most part it's held up nicely. But like most woods, it can be prone to cracking and splitting, esp. when humidity levels change (think indoors, going from season to season; typical east coast US weather; of course, we didn't have central heat/AC for quite a few years when it initially landed). Probably also depends a lot on the choice of a particular piece and the way it's milled, put together, etc. In no way do I mean to be a Debbie Downer about these cups. I think they look very fine. I'd put 'em on my HE-500s. Just sayin'.
