Again this is very significant because I know that many professional reviewers use the Studio Six as a baseline for their reviews.
Very glad that you rated it your amp of the year, very well deserved by the sound of it, and the designer and builder should be congratulated. Also glad that your family let you back into the lounge,- sorry music room -, to do the review!
I very much enjoyed reading your review on a damp, grey, New Years day morning over breakfast!
Now will you stop raiding my music for your reviews…. Rebecca Pidgeon is also one of my great favourites, and Fourplay, I would go so far as to say, is my all time favourite smooth jazz groups LOL
You got me talking and I'm trying to keep my post count down.
Studio Six is a very capable headphone amp. Many seasoned reviewers in the Studio Six thread considers it their TOTL amp. Tom Six the designer and architect is an eloquent and articulate writer who expresses himself very well. I bought the Studio Six from an audiophile whose HiFi stereo system is quite amazing for it's room acoustic treatment and lovely gear. He considers the Studio Six a top notch headphone amp. Yet to my ears Oblivion sounds better and not just marginally. Once you've heard Oblivion details and expanded soundscape, it's hard to do without.
I was busy in my music room as you call it - on New Year's Eve ! This is the scene as I compare Redgum, Sansui AU-717 and Sansui 907mr big muscle amps. A buyer came that day and pick up the Sansui AU-717. I had to let one go. 3 amps is too much. The 907mr has so much control over the speakers and the 3D image is why speakers listening is so much more favoured amongst audio enthusiasts.
Spanish Harlem - Rebecca Pidgeon was one of the songs used in judging when I was in Car Audio comps many many years ago. I was a participant. I have about 20 audiophile CDs and they are still in mint condition. Had that Fourplay CD many years now. About 20 years would be correct. All the CDs are ripped in as flac files to my hard drives and my play back is JR River Media Centre 24.
