i just came to the realization that i am a minimalist that likes audio hardware that works. on my desk, i want to get rid of clutter. so if the hardware doesn't do its job, i'm getting it out of the way. also, the less wires the better, so i need hardware to pull double duty. and definitely no duplications, like two home headphone amps.

therefore, i have a lcd monitor that plugs into the tv cable, has a line out to the headphone amp, and of course the hookup to the comp. and video in from the PS2.

i have a headphone amp that takes a signal from the tvmonitor, and the pc (soundcard). and goes either to the cans or a preamp out to the receiver.

the receiver has the headphone preamp in, the playstation in, a Terk radio tower in, and 2 speakers and a sub out. i shelved the turntable and graphic EQ for now, sitting with the laserdisc player. this means the isoblocks get no play for now, but the vibrapods are under the PS2.

the pc has a crapload of things plugged into it - but for sound it has a ipod in/out, and a emu 0404 out to the Solo amp.

it may sound like alot, but it took a while to plan it all out where it looks pretty svelte and most of it can be controlled by remote too, even the subwoofer levels (hooked into my receiver's rear speakers, which have a volume control on my remote).

btw got my 3960 back, plugged it into my main tv, the other dvd player that used to be there is now 1911's. he got his denon back and i have my old sony receiver back too. i'm pretty happy with the setup i have now - famous last words? i'll take a pic later!

I should have listened to my famous last words. Post count now above 5K, just ordered C-Pads from Headphile, a headband pad from Beyerdynamic, Fid-Audio 0404 Breakout cable from Fiddler, and angling for 2 Cardas RCA caps to boot! Someone stop me! CURSE YOU, HEAD FI! New pic on the first page post once all the stuff arrives in the mail!

My First Post

Ok, this is my first post and I am really getting worried after reading through this thread. The good thing is that I only have a Senn 497 to begin with. Or is that a bad thing?

I hit the 5500 postcount, so here's another update-

My Rig -

Notice the Zoom Palmtop Studio on top of the Solo, and the Darth Beyers lurking behind the SR200. The EQ is finally banished and the PS2 is in its place - and the old Denon reciever is swapped for a Sony receiver. I bring out the turntable only to record vinyl to the computer, then back in the closet it goes. Check out the comic book on the desk - it's by Head-fi's own Catachresis so give him a PM and ask him about it!

But what could that be holding the cans? Let's take a closer look...


What the heck? Yes indeed it is the new Headphile Headphone Stand!


CURSE YOU, HEADPHILE! Notice my SR200 has the Headphile Beta C-Pads on as well. I'm a Headphile Fanboy!

Good news - no new gear since the last update! Wow!

Bad news - the Curse is still strong. I passed 6000 posts and didn't even notice it while I was drooling over the HP-2 thread...my wallet is living in fear again...
