The first time I heard an Empyrean was on a Gilmore Lite in the Headamp booth at CanJam 2018. That was a great listen. I liked that little amp...and ended up buying an Empyrean.

What does the external P.S. do for the amp's sound?

I assume (since I have not heard a GL-II ‘sans’ external power supply) that the noise floor is lower, dynamic range is greater. Certainly the GL-II+ does not sound solid-state. When fed by the NOS/R2R Mojo Audio DAC, the GL-II+ is musically convincing. It’s all mine 😄!

I think many of us here who have been following NickGate had similar thoughts of first trying to encourage him to feel better about his set-up and feeling some compassion for him. But as it proceeded, it seemed as though the narrative he presented here was disingenuous and didn't quite add up - to say nothing of some of his stranger remarks here, which I think have now been removed by the Mods.

If he is suffering from an emotional condition, then I certainly hope with you that he gets the help he needs. However, my hunch is that his motivations are dubious.
Well, I wish him all the best. If he's a troll, I hope he goes away; if he needs medical assistance, I hope he gets some, sooner, rather than later. :)


Same minimalist setup except new key caps opened up the soundstage even more 🤣
And.. moving on from NickGate... :wink:

That's a very nice shot - great headphones and a pretty-looking cable, too!

What keyboard is that, by the way?
