The point to the above post was to simply enhance the point Alex was making...that the tonality of headphones can match or exceeds that of speakers many many times their price.
That's precisely how I feel about my two-channel in-room stereo system! I still love it - but before I dove head-first into high performance personal audio, I used to hear a new record and think to myself: I MUST hear this on my stereo! Now I think: DAMN, I gotta hear this on one of my top headphone rigs!
Your statement also reflects my opinion on the potential of high end headphone playback vs. loudspeaker systems.
AND: Alex's Bloomberg TV appearance is good for us ALL
This system is blowin' my mind at the moment:
Audeze LCD-2 w/ Fazor
wired w/ Double Helix Cables Molecule Elite & Moon Audio LOD
iPod Classic for music storage
