    Praying at the alter of music with ZMF as my guide! Seriously love my ZMF headphones! They really are something else! If you ever get the chance to listen to them…jump on it! Especially the Aeolus and Verites!

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    This is a good response! and... can be used in literally all reviews of any headphone! Source, and the individual make up a lot of disparity between reviews ;)

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    So got the opportunity to demo these... I'll copy-paste my initial impression from another forum below...I basically listen to Qobuz on random and as I'm listening I'll write out my thoughts in a post usually a couple of hours worth of thoughts as I'm listening... For those wanting to see...

    No, that is still my “reference setup” I was just demoing the Fidelice gear... it is really good, but doesn’t replace my Phonitor RME combo. Maybe if the price was more in line... also that Fidelice DAC is massive! It competed well with my reference system, but aesthetically and cost performance...

    ZMF Verite

    I’ve had some time with this now, and can say that the Pendant is a Goldilocks amp for ZMFs...it’s just right! Plenty of tube options for rolling folks, and simplicity of just plugging and going with stock tubes. Both options are excellent and tube rolling helps dial in a preferred sound. For me...

    Sorry for the red...but this was in reference to how I feel the aesthetic of the Fidelice stuff looks like H.A.L. From 2001: A Space Odyssey the VC is my go to for majority of my listening to demo gear...usually will swap between it, my VO and Aeolus...ZMF headphones just hit the right spot for...

    SPL Phonitor X / Phonitor E impressions and Discussion thread

    Yes, Focal works wonderfully on the Phonitor! I've even heard the Stellia with it and no problems there...the Phonitor really just gets out of the way and is my "reference" amp for hearing differences in headphones and what have you.

    Raal Ribbon Headphones - SRH1A

    Well, I would be surprised if the jotunhiem R couldn't get you there.... I think my statement is me not being able to describe properly my thoughts....plenty of power with the Jotunhiem R, it could also be that the difference was the tube sound profile from using the Cayin as a preamp...which...

    Fun picture from forum.headphones meetup in Seattle. My Blackwood Aeolus, @antdroid mahogany Verite, my VC in the background and ZMF Pendant demo unit from ZMF! Great pairing! But we did have some EMI issues with peoples cellphones...but that is a tube issue more than anything else lol...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I have the “production-qualifier” (see note at bottom that I am quoting from @Torq) Jotunheim R on loan with the latest model Bifrost... I brought them to an impromptu meet-up put on by headphones.com, everyone was very impressed by the setup! It makes the SR1A very portable (well more so than...
