Quote: that's quite a controversial statement, if that's the right word, and quite an endorsement of the dt250! Nice to hear from someone who doesn't always feel the need for more, more, more. Imo, if you find a set up that draws you into the music and makes you forget the gear, then you're already there. I get to that point a good deal of the time. I think a lot of upgraditus comes from boredom with the music itself... so we need to find the next big shiny toy to keep us occupied. I have no need to upgrade other than out of curiosity as to what a good ortho could do. I like what a modded Fostex t20 was capable of and the Paradox modded T50 is supposedly much better. But that's curiosity, not need.
