Separate names with a comma.
Tons of hi-fi equipment in this picture.
My wife has OCD, so she threw all my gear into the Oval bin and it all got shredded by the CIA.
Eyy, it's not all about shredding (even if I could actually shred in the first place) - that guitar can be a banjo, sitar, acoustic/12 string acoustic, Tele, Strat, Les Paul, Tritone guitar!
Trying out Qobuz for the first time. So far i'm impressed - much better than Spotify and Tidal, in my opinion.
New headphones Klipsch Hp3 thru a Astell and Kern 270mk11
Abyss 1266 Phi TC: vast, visceral, powerful
My phone camera doesn't do justice to this beauty, but I still feel the urge to share, sorry.
For my taste at least the TT2 is the best DAC/amp I have heard up to and around its price point.
For my taste the Empyrean is the best headphone I have heard so far and I prefer it to the LCD4 (which cost £1000 more).
Some people even prefer the Empy to the Susvara and the Abyss flagship and both of those cost twice the Empy's price and are hard to drive. (I haven't heard those.)
As a bonus the TT2 with the Empyrean is an exceptional match. Detailed, technical but very musical at the same time. Just how I like it.
I think the Meze's name "Empyrean" matches it's looks.
The one thing I can say is that once you hear the ab1266 phi tc there is no going back. It is the most speaker like headphone I have ever heard.
I have not heard the Ab1266 Phi, i'm sure it's an absolutely incredible sounding headphone just like the Empyrean, however, you should make a point to hear the B&W P9 Signature. Those guys at B&W applied their decades of knowledge of speaker design in to the design of the P9 Signature, that's for sure.
I finally have a proper desk to sit my equipment on, lol. Damn desk took 4 hours to build. Well worth it though, I can now mix/master my music more easily.
I also found a place for my old Cyrus system. It's old but it's a fine example of classic British hifi.
Glenn OTL and my regular three-headphone rotation. The HD650 are soaring to previously unknown heights with this amp, tubes are Mullard CV181 and Western Electric 421A.
That is a killer tube combo...congrats!
