Chord + Meze is indeed a match made in heaven.
I used to own a TT2 with my first Empyrean which unfortunately I had to sell at some point.
I am very happy with my RME-ADI 2 & Soloist 3XP at the moment, but in the long run I might get the TT2 again and probably be done with my audio purchases for quite a few years, if not forever.
Chord and Meze really is a match made in heaven.
Recently sold my RME/V281 for the TT2 and it is so well matched to the Empyrean (and Utopia), I don't know why i'd want anything else. I want to replace the standard Empyrean cable with the silver coated upgrade cable, but that's about it. I have the copper upgrade cable, but in XLR with no step down cable for my TT2.
I'm yet to audition Elite, but it sounds to me like doing so would mean owning one headphone only, as it'd likely cover all bases. At the moment the 'own only one' headphone that i've considered the best overall is the D8KP from Final. Perhaps Elite is a step above and takes the crown for me as the 'own only one' choice.
