Thanks Tribestros, hopefully the footprint will expand a bit with the addition of a Bitfrost Uber and a Schiit Lyr, for now I am enjoying the music. Tell me about your rig/musical taste?

 
Well, I'm also a speaker junkie, so mine has a large footprint. I posted it two pages back I think, I have a NuForce uDAC running into my vintage Marantz 2252B. Fantastic speaker amp but honestly it's a beast of a headphone amp. I was gonna buy a Schiit to complement my old Pioneer stereo amp before I got the Marantz and put the money into restoring it, but the vintage Marantz are highly regarded headphone amps because of their dedicated amp they have inside. Running into it, I have a Pioneer 455 turntable, a vintage direct drive with a vintage Audio Technica 8008 cart. I like the cost/quality you get from vintage. You can get top of the line sound for a decent price if you're willing to spend money restoring them. Then as far as headphones go, I'm a huge Sennheiser fan, I have a pair of 558 and a pair of Momentum Over-Ears. I also have an old pair of HD280Pros and for IEMs I have the Bowers and Wilkins C5.
 
Music wise, pretty eclectic but really only eclectic throughout rock. I like a lot of alternative, shoegaze, electronic, industrial, post-rock, experimental metal, avant-garde rock, indie, metal...NIN, Smashing Pumpkins, Godspeed, Deftones, Justice, Daft Punk, Deafheaven, Whirr, Kayo Dot, Dillinger Escape Plan, Muse, Radiohead, Opeth, Sigur Ros, Florence, Midlake... not a fan really of rap or hip hop, but I do have a soft spot for Kanye West, much to my chagrin. But My Beautiful Dark Fantasy was classic and I enjoy Yeezus for the industrial slant. It is what it is. Pretty much, as long as it's not Nickelback or modern "alt" flash-in-the-pan radio rock and has guitars/bass/drums I dig it. Haha.

Another small update.  Finally got a new belt in for my Tandberg 3000X.  Listened to some Bill Evans, sounds sublime.

I had them for less than an hour before I recabled for balanced... (single entry, hacked the stock cable)
 

 
Senn HD598 into Nuforce HA-200 monoblocks, fed from Echo2.
 
Really didn't like the Senn from the Echo2 headphone out, but put it on the monos and whoa!

.  I am constantly amazed at the sound those small 3" Fostex-drivers deliver.

My (very!) modest work setup - Numark uDAC-2, AKG K450. Mostly flacs of my CD collection played via VLC.
 
The K450s may retire shortly, being replaced by either the K240s I've been using at home or a pair of HD650s - but anyway, this is what it looked like three minutes ago.  :)
