Curious what those two decks (the light grey one and the one to the right remind me of portable DAT) on top of the control amp are? Beautiful SONY gear BTW!
Hi.. The devices on the top of Pre are a Sony Discman D-2 (1988) which works but has a broken battery door and a rather random Sony TCM-57 which is "super" if you want a not good mono built in speaker on the back or mono earphone output... (it is mono) .. it works however ....

The D-2 is actually sounding quite good with my Beyer DT770 Pro 80's .. If I'm honest I'd probably rather use my ES cd player.. but yeah.. the D-2 is pretty good...need to clean volume pot however.. as is 100% of the time the case with my vintage gear it seems =\

Yesterday, today and probably tomorrow, I am having a little competition with my closed backs. T60 Argons, Beyer T5's and CFA Cascades. I am using mostly new music, with a big focus on jazz (BBNG's new album, new Miles Davis and even a best of the 90's rock playlist). I am getting rid of some of these, but want to give everything a fair chance.
:L3000:

Closed backs just face a handicap against open backs, so I will stay away from open backs for a few days.
