    @Brahmsian, I just like a lot of variety LOL. It also includes wine, woman and song :ksc75smile:

    Sounds like you need to hear the Nhoord Red v2, Elleven Acoustica Ypsilon or Symphones V series drivers also :)

    Would be interesting to hear what headphone amp/dacs people are using with their Nhoords.

    I currently use a AQ DragonFly Black at home. I have extensively listened to my friend's Audeze Deckard and Benchmark DAC3 however, once the volume levels are balanced I honestly can not hear one bit of improvement over my DragonFly.

    DavidA has highly recommended the Teac UD-301 (hopefully I will listen to one this coming weekend).

    I actually quite like them with my Askewlabs cMoy bb too

    In addition to the UD-301 I've been using Xonar DG and DGX sound cards, Fiio X3 and X3ii DAPs, Bimby/UD-301 + Lyr2/Ember and a Teac AH-01. About the only amp that I don't use with the Nhoord is the BH Crack (bad pairing IMO) and Asgard2 (in the bedroom where I don't listen much)

    @capnjack , where did you find the cups? Those look very interesting with the grill installed from the front. Nice gimbals also, got a price and where to buy?

    Our good friend Rholupat is doing them on his site at the moment and I gotta agree they do look great!

    Concur! Clever design. A blackout grill version coupled with a very dark stained cup would be very interesting to see.
