    I had the NFB-10SE for 7 years and the LCD-2 for 8 before upgrading and it was a world of difference. It's going to be a few years before I upgrade to whatever TOTL amp Audio-GD has available but I'd be interested to hear your experiences when you do pull the trigger on the R-28.

    I think it's a testament to the fickle/quality nature of the HD800s that I can look at a McIntosh amp powering a headphone 1/3rd the price and think 'yeah, that's about right'.

    Pictures Of Your High End System (Please see the first pages for examples of what should be posted here)

    What brand are your socks? I want to make sure I understand the full system.

    The most beautiful headphones you know of?

    This is absolutely stunning. I'd forgotten how excellent the work of Head-Fi modders can be.

    Are the balanced headphone outs on the Sony amp compatible with XLR at all?

    Denon AH-D7000

    It was your unboxing of the D7000s that convinced me to buy them and start on my Hi-fi journey way back in 2011.  I've since replaced them but they were a special pair for a long time.

    I was kind of worried the TakeT had faded into obscurity after 2013 or so.  How would you describe the pair's sonic character?

    It speaks of elegance to me.  Smooth, clean lines and no frills.  The HE1000 looks like a restored vintage can.

    Review by 'dagothur' on item 'AKG Q701 Premium Class Reference Headphones, Quincy Jones Signature Line'

    Introduction:   I purchased the Q701s in September of 2012 after thoroughly enjoying an audition with a friend of mine's about a year earlier.  I had heard a lot about AKGs beforehand: polite, analytical, cold and detailed.  I wasn't prepared for how exciting and energetic they could be even...

    New Audeze LCD3

    I expected as much because Audeze has always been highly praised for customer service, but so far it's been frustrating and awful.

    New Audeze LCD3

    The repair process has been an utter nightmare for me.  Every step of the way I've had to pester the company - as in reminding them to send my LCD-2s back to me, five days after they were 'just about to be shipped' - and getting information is like performing a root canal on a drunk clown.  In...

    The Audeze LCD-2 Ortho thread (New)

    This is, bar none, the best part of the LCD-2s.  When I'm listening with my Q701s or V-Moda M100s music can easily become fatiguing if I'm too critical or focused on details.  It's been a while since I could, but I tried the same with my LCD-2s and no matter the recording I always felt I was...

    I was looking at Stax amps and thought it might be one or a PSU.

    The Audeze LCD-2 Ortho thread (New)

    My LCD-2s are my first and last Audeze purchase.  After hearing everything that's gone wrong with the LCD-4s, LCD-3s and now the hassle I'm going through, my end of the line headphones will be the HE1000.
