        Zomg, I was so confused. I missed part of @Torq's comment and was wondering WTF happened to Amber Rubarth.

        Yeah Melody is great. And I'm sure Amber Rubarth puts on shows to remember as well.

      I thought headphones, etc. were expensive... glimpses into two channel are making me want to buy a house.

        haha part of the reason head-fi became so popular, you can "only" spend 10k and live like a king. two channel on the other hand...there is no end. First step IS to buy a house with a proper listening room though, without a decent sized and well treated room everything sounds kinda shit. How do I know? That's what I have :(

        Headphones is like herbal medicine. Low cost was an advantage. an ounce of the herb in a paper bag from the dealer cost pennies: now it comes in boutique bottles and cost pounds.

        Sacrilege, of course, especially here, but maybe the headphone world should have stopped when HD600 was top-of-the-range luxury!

        Stereo with speakers, or "2-channel," as you Americans call it, can be any price you want to pay. And fantastic sound has been affordable since 1980-something.

        But sure, I've heard >fantastic sound that is very unaffordable to me.

      Squeaky Clean Vinyl MK III is on the way. I foresee a review against the VPI 16.5 in the future.

      It's so heartbreaking that USB audio can't be amazing. Every time I swap from the turntable back to the DAC... :(

        If you really believe that USB audio *can't* be amazing, just go with one of the other methods of getting digital audio out of a PC.

        For most of my "digital life" I never used USB. I'm not using it again now.

      While the HD800 have their advantages, I can't imagine The Mars Volta sounding better than they do on a modded HE-6.

      My father just called to tell me one channel in his 41 yr old Marantz 4270 died ...thankfully he still has the schematics that came with it.

        Funny how things were so open back then. Now companies like Wilson Audio will encase their crossovers in epoxy to hide their secrets.

        I think even computers came with full schematics at some point.

      As a former ZD owner, the Vali 1 is the only tube amp in my house now. Still sounds sublime on the HD600. Where did I go wrong with my life?

        If you look at it wrong it starts ringing. Solid little amp, but makes me long for the likes of an EC amp again.
