The Loki set at 2:30 @8 khz works wonders on the LCD-4; it takes it from being too dark to just right. Jan 21, 2018

        I think Audeze has special EQ profiles for Roon. Have you tried those?

        No. I currently use jriver. I tend to prefer analog EQ, instead of digital EQ. I've tried digital solutions, but none sounded that great to me. Yet.

      Picked up a show-pony LCD-4 from The Source. Very similar to the LCD-3f but without the lower treble emphasis and incredibly detailed bass

      Couldn't decide on an Aeon Open or Klipsch HP-3, so I bought an Oppo UDP-203 instead...FML. Gonna keep my headphone rig as is for now.

        How's your UDP-203 working for you? I'm thinking of picking up a CD transport (~ NAD 516BEE), but may swing for an Oppo for the added video experience.

        I want the Dolby Vision capability and sacd Playback, and it is doing both extremely well

      So impressed with the Jot: it compares favorably to my Kenzie Encore at 1/6th the price

        I'm digging the midrange on it most of all. Great grip on the bass and I'm not noticing anything objectionable in the l lower treble with my lcd-3 or 650s

        What about staging compared to the K.E.?

        I wouldn't say staging is its strong suit, but it's fine. Head stage is my least important criteria for any headphone related gear. I listen to 'phones for detail and tonality.

      Picked up a Jotunheim from the schiitr today to complement my Kenzie Encore. No phono or dac module. Digging it so far

        If my hunch is wrong, maybe they will tackle the headstage next. :)

        @Melvillian think I had a comment somewhere here about the Jot surprisingly source scaleable-- it really is

      Spinning "Bad" at the Schittr. The Sol sounds damn good through the Salks.

        Tax time may require a Song 3 purchase... baby Jesus.
