Haven't really gotten in to rolling yet. I replaced the stock drivers with a pair of PSVANE CV-181's (not the Mark II). I recently received a pair of 7N7's, but I'm waiting for delivery of the adapters.
Are the CV-181's much better than stock Psvanes?

Do you prefer moded He500 to HE6 and what kind of mod is it?
I owe the HE500, not the HE6 that I tested while back. I remember not having so much impressed by the HE6. Now worth the hipe around it (IMO).
Re my HE500's mod: new Forza cable, and driver's protection removed. So the driver is now visible and exposed, but this make the sound more clear and "free";

Thanks for the answer) It is a very revealing fact for me that you prefer he500 in your multi-thousandth system side by side with stax over other totl planars. I love them too and should upgrade dac and amp to open their full potential. Cheers

Wow! That might be the best looking ZMF, I have ever seen. Killer pics, as well!

Lots of changes in the last few months, mostly brought about by the combination of the RAAL SR1a, ZMF's Vérité and the Rosson Audio RAD-0 (the rest is in my profile), but this is where I've landed:



Just need to pick a tube amp to go with the M-Scaler -> Hugo TT 2 in the office.

It's a bit of a mess but here is my current state of affairs. I use the HiBy DAP and 1Mores for long walks, and the Schiit stack and BD T1s at-home. I've been using the HiBy DAP at home but I'm now in the middle of building out (nerd alert!) a Raspberry Pi with Moode to handle all the at-home duties . There is a pair of Sendys in the background which I'm currently selling (headphones are like a partner - you commit to one.).

Sorry for the delay in responding. I believe my Elise is the 2016 model and came with the following tubes:

stock type Russian tubes (6SN7 and 6AS7 equivalents)

Eikons are currently on my head. Not as glamorous as some other setups, but this is my main work station (which occasionally doubles as our kitchen table!). :)

Hi, how would you describe the auteur and Elise combo? Ive got the auteurs in the making and am thinking of buying a feliks audio amp, although probably the less expensive espressivo.

I won't go into minute (my-noot) details, but to say that the pairing is excellent. This amp was made for dynamic drivers, and vise-versa. Everything is there, highs, lows, mids, vocals, etc., and in great detail. In addition, the cans are remarkably easy to drive with the Elise. I listen at moderately high volume, not earsplitting but not whispers either. I rarely turn the dial past 9:00 (using Line Out from my FiiO X5-III).

How about the espressivo? Have you ever had the chance to listen to it? do you think it's a valid alternative?

I have not. I live in a fairly rural part of NY State. The nearest hi-fi shop to me likely a few hours away in NYC. Nearly everything I own today has been bought sight unseen/sound unheard, based on reviews and recommendations found here.
