Zoom25's setup with the Dangerous Music Source!
Somehow I missed transferring this picture to my meet impressions folder after processing it. Sorry Zoom25!
This was another setup that worked great with the CD3000s.
Zoom25 was awesome about setting me up with tunes, and yeah, those AH-D2000s really worked well for movies.
Thanks again Rachit!
The best part about my setup was all the food I could easily grab behind the counter
I really wanted to A/B my D2000s for music and movies with a Fostex, unfortunately there wasn't one.
Jeff, I really wanted you to hear the HD800s off the Source. Out of all the pairings we tried, this one was the best by a long shot. Unfortunately, I totally lost track of time and everyone had already packed up their gear. I was surprised they were being driven so well with lots of bass and not even a hint of fatigue that I always hear about the HD800. It was far less fatiguing system than a LCD-3 w/ (BHA-1 + BDA-2).
The T1s that we tried didn't seem to play that well off the Source, so wasn't expecting much when I tried the HD800.
LOL The reason I initially put them on was to see for myself the comfort that everyone kept talking about HD800s. These were the lightest and comfiest things ever (even over the D2000s for me). So I thought to myself, might as well plug them in just for the heck of it, knowing that it would probably be disastrous considering the Source was a solid state designed for studio use and probably make it sound bright. I have never been more shocked before. It was a more fun sounding setup than my previous HE-500, LCD-2 and LCD-3 for every genre I tried, including the electronic stuff I had going on. I've tried setups with various Audeze and Hifiman going up to $8k and this simplistic Source + HD800 absolutely crushed all of them.
Definitely a thing to check out at the next!
