I'm actually curious how you get the keyboard shelf to work. I've got some back problems myself, and a recliner sounds awesome.



Well, first off let me humbly interject that using a recliner is an absolutely baller genius idea, especially if you have a busted back, but even if you don't it's still pure baller genius. The human body just isn't designed to spend much time in a seated position; if your gonna sit on your ace, at least make it comfy as possible.
 
Anyways, here's some pointers for the recliner:
 
First, you're gonna need a table that stands higher than average.
 
I went Ikea and bought an inexpensive model that had adjustable metal legs so I could raise it to the appropriate height
 
In the beginning the keyboard sat on the side-table next to the recliner, but I wanted that space for other items so I built the shelf/cubby for the keyboard on the underside of the desk.
 
The shelf is pretty simple: I went to the hardware store and bought (1) a wooden board meant for use as a shelf and (2) four L-shaped brackets, all said and done it was only a few bucks. I made my measurements, then screwed the L-brackets into the bottom of the desk and then screwed the wood board between the L-brackets. It's way way sturdy enough to hold the keyboard, do it right and you only have to do it once.

Here's a pic to help makes sense from what I described. The perspective is from sitting in the recliner. Realized only after I took it that I *probably* should have had the keyboard on the shelf instead of my lap... 'doh!

Beautiful! How do you like it?


I'm really enjoying it so far. Since upgrading I finally understand why people find the Alessandro MS2 fatiguing, at louder volumes the treble is a bit like being stabbed in the ears  -_-
 
I haven't had a chance to try out the setup with my Fostex T50RP yet, I'm sure there will be a nice improvement with those as well though. I really should get around to modding those things soon...

A fellow Ming-Da owner!  Does it get much use with headphones with your WA2 around?  The Ming-Da certainly has gobs of power, but it can be a bit noisy on low-impedance/high-sensitivity cans.
 
 

 
the mingda mainly serve as power amp for my speaker now (that is until I can afford a real power amp). and yes, mine is also noisy for low impedance cans. though i heard some owner dont have this problem.

The HD650 is darker/warmer and has a much fuller sound then the HD598. The HD598 was slightly more airy although the detail of the HD650 more then makes up for it. However HD598 is no slouch as I preferred it to the D2000, not sure why, perhaps the mids and soundstage captivated me a little more then the bass of the D2000. The HD25 is a very good portable headphone, but sounds messy/grainy compared to the HD598/HD650. The bass of the HD25 is a lot more in your face then the HD598/HD650 and provides a fun portable experience. Also there is a peak somewhere in the highs of the HD25 that bothers me, this is not present in the other sennheisers.
