Bringing up the rear is Odyssey with Telefunken EL156 power tubes. Merry Christmas to those who are still on 25th Dec 2021. :relaxed:

I've had many headphones come and go over the past year; it's been a lot of fun, as well as very educational. Most interesting to me has been admitting to myself that I liked certain things (such as a brighter sound signature) that I thought I did not (for whatever reason). I've had lots come and go over the course of 2021, but these are the ones that have stayed. Some surprises for me have included the Hifiman Deva and the Audeze LCD-GX. Looking forward to spending more time in 2022 LISTENING to the music and not searching for gear :)

We will miss you :wink:
9 position, almost don't fit to you, but thankfully you, like me, are enjoying the Denons these christmas days :L3000: Do you notice an improvement using the Ferrum with them? There are some people in it's thread that find better source sinergys for the 9200s, other people say that thy work equal with all sources.

I don't know, I only listened to the D9200 with the Ferrum. They're both recent acquisitions. The D9200 are very easy to drive, so I can imagine they work well with a DAP too.

Received HD6XX headphones for Christmas... quite nice, sounding pretty good with my DV 336SE

HD650 and Dv 336se were probably my very first setup. However what is that receiver you're using to drive those Yamahas? Did miss my Sansuis.

Hi, Merry Christmas... the DV336 and HD650 seem to be a nice combo ... I'm Driving the Yammy's with this.. Sony TA-N77ES 200WPC amp The reciever in the photo is powering the JBL L1's on the shelf to the right of the yammy's it is a Pioneer SX3600 (which drives headphones pretty good it ownself.. the Sony TA-E77ESD preamp is kind of a beast for powering headphones as well.

Crikey some very lovely vintage gear there and you're showing the hd6xx and dv336se. :)

Because I went down the Sansui vintage amps rabbit hole, I cancel my DNA Stratus order after waiting 8 months. I'll never get to sample the Stratus again or to own it. However I did love the Sansui AU-7700, AU-717 and AU-Alpha 907mr. I've since sold off all the Sansuis and have only a Kenwood KA-3300D left.

Sweet! Wait until they've played for a while and break in some. One of the big bangs for the buck in audio, IMO. They will benefit from a decent aftermarket cable too...no need to go insane, just something decent (the stock cable is a weak link, again IMO).

This is the cave I am living in daily, which is actually a studio desk my wife didn't like. I attached an extension to it. In the last few days M17 with Stealth my main listening setup. I have the HA200 next to me, but the ease of use of M17 works very well with a lazy person like me. I have to say, Stealth and M17 (for which I wa waiting for since February) are the real deals of 2021.
I spot a Midnight Commander session! Nice! I'm a Linux user as well. I'm also happy that I wasn't the only one sitting their headphones on a microfiber cloth :L3000:
