It would seem to me it has become a monster. A quick look at the for sale forums tells alot...amps for sale are way up there. Is it possible that the voyage to nirvana of sound cannot be bought? I think alot of the high dollar stuff is more snake oil than many think (or hope). I know so many here abhore the use of EQ in the guise of trying to be purist. Unless you have the same ears and setup as the recording engineer you will not hear the same.....really. The human ear is quite an amazing thing in that it can adjust itself to the enviornment....or maybe it is the brain that does that. We all have probably listened to something wether it be cans or speakers that sounded aweful but mellowed out after a time. My attitude has always been if it sounds good to you than enjoy. Getting back to EQ I remember Soundcraftsmen sold cards that aligned with the sliders on their EQ's that the user would cut so as to remember the best setting for certain songs or albums because all the equipment is different. Sony's daps had 2 custom settings along with the trash factory choices but I loved the 2 settings that I could set for IEM's or full size cans. My only purchase of recent has been a set of Mee M6 Pro to step in for an old set of Sure E4 and I must say for $50 they are awesome.....to me.....I feel no need to chase a better sound. I wou;ld like to hear other thoughts and in particular long standing members that have been along for thid ride for a long time. Thanks.
