Headphone Inventory

Love to find underdog audio equipment good for electronic music that punches above its weight/price class.

Signature I'm seeking - tons of micro-detail, rich tonality, controlled textured bottomless low-end, lush balanced mids, smooth marathon listening session non-fatiguing treble. Equipment with 'muscle and finesse' basically.

OWN


****LCD 2.1 - The deepest darkest chocolate with a dash of coffee & cream.

****FOSTEX T20-RP Mk2 - Exotic wood DIY custom modification.
(Closed 2.1 tuning style)

****DENON D2k - torn down/disassembled so long it hurts.

IEMs


****LZ A3 Hybrid BA IEM



OWNED


****SOLD*** LZ A2 hybrid dynamic/balanced armature IEMs

****SOLD*** MODIFIED HiFiMAN HE-400

****SOLD*** MODIFIED NAD VISO HP-50

Headphone Amp Inventory

***OWN*** iBasso PB2 - w. OPA604 OPAMPs + dummy buffers (transportable, but desktop class amp)
PLUS LPS 16 volt battery-powered desktop/transportable solution.

***SELLING SOON*** Project Starlight with 12AU7 tube amp.

***SOLD*** CAYIN C5 - excellent budget level portable amp.
Organic, wide 3D presentation, paired excellently with my modded T20RP's.

***SOLD*** LIGHT HARMONIC GO1000 - transparent and dynamic, but lacking soul.
