Thanks!
 
I haven't really spent enough time with either the 500's or DM+ (both purchased in March), but first impressions are positive. They seem to play well together for now, but I think a dedicated headamp will find its way into the setup soon.
 
The desk is actually a coffee table :wink:
I sometimes move the Mac in to the living room, so that I can watch TV and listen to music at the same time.

I love it!  Simple and clean!
 
Two questions, if you don't mind me asking.  What's your impressions on this setup?  Also, I like (from the small portion viewable) the look of that desk/table top.  Mind if I ask what type of desk that is?

Any ideas of what amp your thinking of investing in?  I have heard that Schiit's Asgard is a good pairing for the HE-500.
 
Very nice!  I would have never of thought of that being a coffee table.  :)

My headphone guy is insisting that I try the Violectric V100 and V200. He should have them in stock (and also the HiFiMan EF6) by the end of the month, so I'll have to give them a listen.
 
The Schiit amps look interesting, especially the Lyr. But then I would be compelled to buy the Bitfrost aswell :wink:

V200 is a very decent amp with lots of juice.

Recently reorganized my desktop. I now have the HRT MS II+ feeding the Valhalla while it resides on top of the Burson Audio HA-160DS. I would be using my Rein Audio X-DAC, but I think it's a faulty unit (that's $800 dollars just sitting there, and Rein hasn't contacted me yet about it). Current;y amping the Q701 with the Valhalla and the HD650 with the HA-160DS. That cable you see is a courteous review sample of the man you see above me. :wink:

Does the HD650 sound too dark with the Dark Star, or what does it sound like?
