Here's my escape from reality.

20201011_153742.jpg


Headphones
Meze Empyrean - My favorite, the one that has it all nailed down for me. Comfort, build, looks, and a sound that brings top tier musical enjoyment with zero fatigue.
Sennheiser HD660S - My first open-back headphones, which I still love dearly. Super comfy, sound very neutral/natural, and never fatiguing.

Source gear
Schiit Bifrost 2 - A very capable DAC with a smooth, neutral, natural and 3-dimensional sound that is free from any type of digital glare or harshness.
Schiit Asgard 3 - My solid-state utility amp, which I primarily got because it stacks nicely with the Bifrost 2. It does the job. :)
Feliks Audio Euforia Mk2 (2019 model) - My idea of what a tube amp should be. It takes the Empyrean to another level by greatly enhancing its dynamic capabilities, expanding its soundstage and fully resolving music in a lifelike manner. And with the HD660S, yeah, it scales with the Euforia in traditional Sennheiser fashion. Downright impressive.

Looks like the Antec Server case that I had back in 2006 :)
It is actually a Coolermaster server case...I have owned it for years and every once in awhile it will get a hard drive or two upgrade :slight_smile:

Any idea where you got that stand with adjustable legs? I need something like that! Nice setup.

ATH-X5000? What do you think? I was planning on the X5000 as my next pair of headphones..
Yes, the headphones are Audio Technica ATH-ADX5000. It depends, they are very transparent and dynamic, soundwise neutral to bright, but also very unforgiving. They are throwing at you every mistake made during the recording process. This might be good, or not, and I would say these are more towards HD800 than other headphones. If you properly amplify them, the best would be a tube amplifier, they are neutral and the brigthness goes away. However, I would recommend these for classical or jazz. In my case, listening mostly to rock music, I am not sure if these are the best match. There are a lot of reviews, but I guess a good read is this one:
