        Damn bruh…looking forward to impressions. Mostly concerned about thinness or softness in dynamics. Also whether it’s worth over the ogs

        I should be getting mine coming week, assuming customs works along. Will decide whether I stick with my A2, LIM, or MIB.

      Austrian Audio The Composer isn't the new Sennheiser HD900 that was never released, more like an improved AKG K812

        + Not detecting any sharp resonances, so in that sense The Composer is a smooth and balanced sounding headphone
        + Headstage is quite large
        + Dynamics are good
        + Timbre, none of that plasticity that Hifiman's do have for example

        +/- Plankton, The Composer is not a plankton monster. It sounds smooth from the top to the bottom. But somehow I don't see this much of a negative side (but you might) - maybe the bright treble compensates in terms of detail retrieval?
        - Overall balance is a bit bright, but not necessary offensively so, especially if taken care with partnering equipment
        - Not the most vibrant midrange

        If you absolutely hate the AKG K812, Austrian Audio The Composer might not be for you. But personally I am not able to go back to the Sennheiser HD800S' anymore. I like how resonance free and dynamic the Composers sound. HD800S hits like a wet noodle compared to that.

        I've been inquiring them the availability of Yggdrasil MiB since last November and their answer has pretty much been "it'll be available through us the next month". And now as a cherry on a top of the cake I've started to experience problems with my Mjolnir 3 and it seems they've completely ghosted me.

        I hope they bring it back. MJ3 is a little lonely without a matching chassis DAC in the lineup. My guess is it comes back as Singularity.

        A while ago I was using my Utopias with the HeadAmp Gilmore Lite and then the Mjolnir Pure Bipolar and those amps made the Utopias sound like you describe above, but the DSHA-3F solves those problems to my ears.

        Thanks for sharing, @Collusion. I have yet to find the synergy I want with Utopia, with the limitation of course that I can't fit and don't like the look of the large EC or DNA tube amps. I'm starting to think that the Yggdrasil Analog 2 may be the culprit, so may try the MIB variant soon to see. Tempted to just move to HD800S as well and get a Mjolnir 3.

        @zonto trying a different DAC might give you insight.... maybe something with a warmer/darker midrange? I had a chance to home demo the newer 2022 Utopias as well a while back. They were somewhat dialed back in the treble, but the timbral issues persisted from my POV. Even a darker/more romantic amplifier like the Raal HSA-1b didn't make me love them. Switching back to HD800S' was always a relief.

        @zottel Head-Fi has two factor authentication, which makes me doubt this would be the case.

        But I sent the seller a message asking him to get back to me within the next couple of days. If nothing happens, I'll contact Paypal for sure.

        Head-Fi may offer two factor but no guarantee someone is using it, and even if they are it’s not totally foolproof.

        The LS60's are certainly not rolled-off in the treble region. I didn't have any grievances with the treble, but I have to admit that I am currently on a medication that (temporarily) compromises my ability to hear the very highest frequencies. You might want to check this area out with your own ears.

        I’m very curious about those all-in-ones, too. Might be my way to go if I ever have the money to pay for a decent 2ch. I’m especially interested in the new Dynaudio Focus range and hope to hear them in Munich if I manage to find the time this year.

        I 'd really like to hear the LS60. I currently have the LS50W, the older model, and they sound really good. My only reservation is that the older LS50W use the older KEF Connect app, and it's already a little buggy. One wonders how much longer it'll be supported, and you sort of need it for WiFi set-up and other things.

        @Ksaurav402 Watched it a long time ago, but don't remember specifically what kind of impression it left. For me JW4 is one of those movies that leave a lasting impression. JW4 has the best cinematography of the whole series and the action scenes are even more insane than before.

        That's an interesting question, but it's apples and oranges to me, since speakers change so much in the room. Maybe a good pair of small-ish monitors? Strong imaging and precision but without much bass impact.
