I got to 3 racks. That’s when I say this madness has to stop. So the 3rd is gone now.

Here's a photo of my current setup this time with some of my headphones. Latest addition is the Raal SR1a which came with a Jotunheim R (sitting unused on top of the Cayin's transformers) as well as the speaker amp interface box (not shown, but that's what I'm currently using with the Pass XA25). I also have a Bifrost 2 now (on top of the May DAC). Things are getting a bit cramped so I'm probably have to start getting rid of some gear.

Lots of LPs you have there. I love using my TT too despite the convenience of digital streaming. Vinyl and tube amps... ummmm 😊
Yessir! I recently reconfigured my system to have my TT feed into the Felix Elise. Magic!

I love it. It replaced a Spring KTE that I had previously. Having a TOTL DAC helps me get the most out of the rest of my system.

What will you be sending off?

Probably some amps. The Viva Egoista and the Pass XA25 are in heavy use these days, the Cayin sadly hasn't seen too much use lately and the Luxman and the Pass HPA-1 I haven't used in awhile and a WA22 that hasn't been used for even longer. It kind of becomes a self reinforcing thing when my TOTL headphones are also some of the most power hungry ones; that necessitates the use of powerful amps to get the most out of them and consequently, the lower powered gear doesn't get as much attention.

That being said, I do still use this setup with a Audioquest Dragonfly Cobalt. I have replaced the Mullard tubes with Amperex and the opamp from a Burson V5i to a Sparkos since that picture was taken so it's not always about summit-fi.

Too Bad the Wa22 has no 300B tubes instead of 6080s, otherwise I'd gladly take it from you :p

I'm a little surprised that the Cayin doesn't see much use tho.
What is it, that you're missing?
If you feel that these questions derail the thread too much, I'd be happy to receive a pm :wink:

There.
I love the view of my new system when first entering my listening room, and this is what it currently looks like. As you can see, my Verite C are ready to rock. :o2smile:

I've been using my Susvara and TC a lot lately and the 845 just has way more power (15W) and sounds fantastic (I've also upgraded most of the tubes on it (rectifier, 6sn7, and power tubes), but haven't yet upgraded the 300b on the Cayin). I have used it with the LCD-4 when I was looking for a warmer sound which was great.

Ok, time to fulfill what I promised. He is about 2 months, and he has learned to climb my leg, like in this pic :wink: Last week, when we wake up, find him a little wounded, but I hope he'll recover soon...

At the end, we only adopted one kittie, the other one disappeared :frowning2:
