    For those of us with multiple headphones, which ones are you listening with now?

    ▶ Rotel CD Player > Pontus DAC > Artemis HPA > Sennheiser HD800S Weather Report 8:30 (1979 / Live)... I bought this album when it was released in 1979. Was just getting into jazz and this was one of those take a chance buys. Still loving it today. Still have the vinyl. Sounds much better on...

    Denafrips Venus 2 & 12th anniversary edition

    And you're clearly missing the point! And obviously the point of your own post where Alvin is saying the same.... unauthorized sales have no warranty. And I'm well aware of what e-bay is as I've only been buying through them for over 20 years. What I don't do is buy electronics from...

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    For the record, I never needed anything to enjoy music. I simply enjoyed it. And for me, I miss the 70s Music wise. And I wasn't "judging" it was just my way of describing how out of the world I thought the album was. And BTW, I certainly had my fun bad in the day so no pot calling the kettle...

    Denafrips Venus 2 & 12th anniversary edition

    I never buy items from unauthorized dealers... no matter the enticing price. Why? should you ever need repairs or support, you'll be out of luck. I'm looking to by a Teac CD player transport from a specific company, and the first thing I did was go onto Teac's site to see if the company was...

    For those of us with multiple headphones, which ones are you listening with now?

    I have the Hotel Costes, Vol 1, and yeah, +1 for Rollin' on Chrome. Love that song. Jamin it now :thumbsup: Nice, have that Zhane, also We Live In Brooklyn, Baby by Roy Ayers. BTW, I have the Teac UD-503. Good unit. Still use it to power my active speakers, but my main system is now Denafrips...

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Giving this a listen in Spotify now. Don't have any John McLaughlin on his own, mostly with Al Di Meola, and of course Miles Davis. Really liking Here Come the Jiis. Also feeling Clap Your Hand. The recording sounds strong on this album, even hearing it on my standard Spotify account. I'm on...

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    ▶ Rotel CD Player > Pontus DAC > Artemis HPA > HD800S ... No less than 3 years ago, I was still calling Bitches Brew "acid music for headbangers and trippers" as it was an album I simply couldn't get into, despite having it for over 15 years. Now, I think it's one of the greatest albums I've...

    It's a really good album that grows on you after hearing it a few times. If you want to get an idea of where she's coming from with that album check the > link :wink: If you want to know what's she's about check this video interview...

    ▶ Rotel CD Player > Pontus DAC > Artemis HPA > HD800S :L3000: Mohini Dey - Mohini Dey (2023) - I just can't stop playing this album since getting it. It's just that addictive as the music is outstanding. Add that the production and sound recording is excellent, and you have one great...

    Nice selection there. I've a couple of Minnie Ripperton CDs. but don't have that one. I've a few Roy Ayers CDs, but don't have that one.

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    I should have made myself clear, once I have an audiophile edition of a title I don't go chasing after others. Bitches Brew is the lone exception, and that happened for other reasons, not because I was chasing better. And, just as you, I've hundreds of favorite albums across many genres, so...

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Nice collection there, I don't have any of them but know the artists. I bought the one album I have and never bought anything else after. Apparently, it wasn't my thing back then. Haven't heard anything by him since. I'll only chase after the audiophile edition of CDs if it's a favorite album...

    Aune S17 pro

    Well at least you knew about it and was prepared. As for active cooling, it's honestly why I skipped the Burson amps. I came very close to getting the Soloist Voyager, was certainly within my price point, and was even a click away from purchasing it, but in the end, I couldn't get past the...

    Aune S17 pro

    You know, based on what I am hearing about heating problems, and needing heatsinks and all that to keep the unit cooled, I'm glad I didn't get one of these. If I have to resort to all types of tricks and add-ons just to keep a unit cool so I can play it, I don't need it. I think Aune should...

    Nice to know I'm not the only one who can appreciate those "audiophile" CDs :thumbsup: I have a Makoto Ozone on vinyl - Now You Know, but not that one, and none on CD. Haven't heard it for so long I don't even know what it sounds like.

    Niimbus Ultimate Series US4/US4+/US5/US5 Pro Headphone Amps - by Lake People

    And if they gave you even half of that, you'd then give another 20 list of things, with number 1) being the amp costs too much, 2 being too many buttons on the front, 3 being too complicated to operate.

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    I think if people stopped listening to other's tell them what their gear should sound like, a lot more people would be happy with what they have. When I choose to buy any gear, it's never because someone told me what I needed, it's because I researched and found out on my own what was...

    Confused by the cost of CD Transports

    It's not balanced. If it were, it would have XLR outputs. Not a big deal, just a curiosity. My Rotel doesn't have XLR outs. And if I get the Teac VRDS-701T (CD Transport), number 1 on my list, it doesn't have XLR outs either. Yeah, I looked at that Shanling ET3 as it was getting a lot of...

    Confused by the cost of CD Transports

    Thank you. Yeah, I'm playing with both the Supra LoRad silver and copper-based power cords in my system. I have 3 cords in the system - 2 copper-based cords, one silver cord. I've found if I place the both the copper-based cords on the DAC and headphone amp, silver cords on the CD player, I...

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Can't believe I'm seeing this obscure album posted here. I have that CD and my favs on it are Inhaler, and the Issac Hayes sampled Walk On by (YouTube) in Wicky. Also, like Plus Profond.
