    @zach915m How do the Ambrosia Maple's sound compared to the Teaks?

    WOW! More beautiful Auteurs. I can't afford another set - heck, I couldn't afford the pair that I have (thanks again, Zach). Could I just buy a set of finished cups? :D Maybe change them out myself once a year or so. :O

    Listening to Tsuyoshi Yamamoto's Midnight Sugar with the Auteurs is wonderful. Sooo many magical soul tingling moments. Absolutely jaw dropping.

    I like the pairing... but I don't exactly have a lot of sources to make comparisons against.

    I listen Auteur Blackwood with Eddie Current Balancing Act. not 300b right now, it is px4, but going to buy new we 300b and hope it would be a great combo. right now it is also amazing sound)

    the only problem with my Auteur - as you can see at the picture - one wooden cup is broken and I don’t know how to buy replacement or how to fix it. but the headphones are superb, like them very much. recently sold lcd-4, ether flow, utopias and some other ones - but still keep them.

    Ooh dear I hope you can get the wood repaired. Just wondering what made you keep Auteur over LCD-4?
    I loved lcd4 very much and bought it 2 times. wonderful sound. but first time I sold them because they were very inconvenient and I couldn’t listen them more than 30-40 minutes in arm chair and even less at the desk. second time I sold them because they weren’t good pair with my previous amp.
    now I want to try empyrean and ether 2 - they should not only have great sound, but also should be comfortable and great looking, it is very important factors for me also.

    actually about 300b. I am now thinking about which 300b to buy. old WE is too expensive for me, so I am choosing between Takatsuki and new WE, which is announced now. what you could recommend for this amp?

    Similar experience, I’ve kept the Autuer and Vérité, selling both the Utopia and OG Abyss 1266. The former have a musicality that wins every time. Though it also points to how incredibly subjective our hobby is, go figure.

    I haven’t tried the WE or Takati yet, but the mid tier 300b’s that are very good are TJ Fullmusic, and EML variants.

    Damn! I'd lose my mind if I got even a small scratch on mine,let alone broken. If I may ask,how'd you break the cup? Asking for scientific reasons.

    You seem to be traveling nearly the same road as me. I currently own: Blackwood Auteur, Utopia, Ether Flow, Ether 2, Empyrean, HEKv2. I’ve never heard LCD4.

    E2/Empyrean comparison is actually very interesting. Spare vs lush. I do find them both very comfortable, and both have great headstage. I like both, although with different amps. Empyrean seems too wet w/ LP, better with Bryston SS, while I prefer E2 w/ LP.

    I don’t really remember. it just happened some time ago and last month I listen them as it is. not worry much about such things, it doesn’t affect sound much, but I would prefer to fix it. wrote to Zach, but he didn’t answer.
