    Serial Number Gate begins.

    Your "OLD" Empyrean is nothing, NOTHING compared to the might of serial numbers > 800 Empyreans ! They are so much better !

    Let the FUD side of the force flow through you.....You know it to be true !!!

    I have #57 and I’ll put it up against any of the others. The earlier ones have the original sound signature. The later ones got diluted along the way. :beyersmile:

    That’s very good. You have something to plug your headphones into. One day you can use a 300B amp and really hear what the headphones sound like. :ksc75smile:

    It’s all good. Actually I have had solid state my entire life, and just got into tubes. Wow what a difference.

    This one, Auris HA2 SE is very good with the Empyrean and not very expensive.

    Thanks. Actually it didn’t really sing until I added the Brimar CV1988 drivers and KR 300B tubes.

    Never got a chance to listen to Pavane
    I can only imagine how wonderful this whole set up is.

    Reading this thread it becomes pretty clear what the competition of the Empyrean is. The same names keep popping up.
    I think by now it is pretty obvious that the Empyrean destroys everything below its price point.

    Let me illustrate the competition with retail prices in the UK.

    Meze Empyrean - £2699 ($3342)
    Audeze LCD4/4z - £3599 ($4456)
    HifiMan Susvara - £5695 ($7051)
    HifiMan HE1000SE - £3249 ($4023)
    Abyss 1266 Phi - £4950 ($6127)
    Stax SR009S - £3895 ($4822)

    Let's not get into the absolutely out of this world sort of headphone prices, but see the value of the Empyrean from these numbers. Knowing that you can actually get the Meze flagship for slightly less, depending on your relationship with your dealer makes it an even better deal. Regardless what you actually prefer from the 6 headphones I have listed. (The Stax needs an energizer too and won't give you the planar bass if you are a bass fan like me.)

    Meze and Rinaro have absolutely nailed it with this headphone.

    Hook it up to a phenomenal DAC/amp like the Chord Hugo TT2 and you are sorted for many years to come. Like me. :)
    Unless you have many more thousands of £/$/€ to play with. Unlike me. :)
