Damn that cable!  8 wire I'm guessing.  And it works for both your LCD and Beyer?  If so, very convenient!
 
Also like the headphone stands, where did you get those?

Thanks for the warm welcome, I'm loving these awesome cans!
 
   
 
Looking great!!!
 
How do you like the Audeze and NFB-28 pairing?

 
They pair very, very well indeed. The first thing that struck me with the combo is 'transparency'. The clarity is just on another level - you can distinctively hear the air both in front and behind the sound, thus creating this convincing impression that the you're not just listening to a wall of sound, but from 'imaginary' instruments placed around a room (or stage, song dependent).
 
In balanced mode, the dynamics are very high that they sound 'crisp/sharp/fast' even at low volumes - but at the same time can be unforgiving of poor recordings (My Chemical Romance comes to mind). Bass texture, upper treble details and soundstage width & depth are improved too. Lively and 'big' sound.
 
In single-ended mode the leading notes sound 'soft/rounded' - I'm guessing this is what you'd call a laid back sound. Sounds a bit boring compared to balanced mode.

Overhauled my setup since last summer (and still just as bad at photography).

My station is finally complete! It's come a long way... When I move to my new place, I will be ordering Magnepan MMG speakers! Tell me what you think!

My system is:

PS Audio Power Plant P5 Power Regenerator (connected to the wall via Audio GD powercable) powers my computer (Monoprice Power Cable), Reference 10.32 (Pangea AC-9 powercable), Emotiva XPA-2 (Monoprice Power Cable), and my Subwoofer (Monoprice Power Cable).

Foobar FLAC ASIO > Belkin F5U219 rev.9 pci USB controller > Lacie USB cable > Audio-GD Reference 10.32 > HE-6 OR Yacco Solid Core Silver RCA cables > Emotiva XPA-2 > Energy RC-10 Speakers and BIC Subwoofer

Wow lots of awesome rigs in this lengthy thread!!

Here's my current living room arrangement.
Eventually will be All Rega.






Thought lid kick back with a nice cool glass of bulmers, dig out Phil Colin's In The Air Tonight LP And give the Rega Ear a proper listen, I bought it still new in its box and haven't had the chance to listen to it until now. Very impressed at the moment considering the SA5Ks are quite the demanding pair of headphones!

Nice!
 
Looks like you've added a Sony turntable to the mix.  Excellent.
