Other Audio Equipment
Teac Distinction AI-1000 integrated amp...a dream come true, no tones, no balance, just pure amplified bliss. And this replaced my Marantz PM8003 integrated amp, that previously replaced the PM7200 Class A sibling, feeding a pair of Axiom M80v2 floorstanders, and a Velodyne DEQ-12R sub...unfortunately now I have a new very disturbing neighbor giving me hard time because of the music (solved with the Fostex in the house)....
Audio-Related Tweaks
Well in order to listen music properly you need to be in the mood, so do not forget a Whiskey on the rocks, a nice cigar, a cup of nice espresso, and if you can find one, a nice MUTE lady massaging your back (and no talking)....

Signature

I love the Fostex TH-X00 sound. All 3 of them. The 3 of a perfect pair (like Kim Crimson said). Please do yourself a favor, grab them and stop chasing the audio Nirvana, I think that after having listening quite a few headphones, they are as close as you will get.
