The LauX is so good with Audeze’s. Congrats.
Eddie Current 2A3 MKIV HD800
We talkin super start? Broken headband HD650 with smoker lung deflated pads I got for $50 and a Headroom Bithead. Still good enough that I am now $1000's of dollars poorer and still enamored with the hobby (if not very active anymore).
Had a pair of HD280 for half a forever, but it wasn't until I bought a Fulla 2 on a lark that I started to understand the possibilities. Head first into the abyss ever since...
HD600 and Pono Player. Everyone in the Pono community said how well the Pono drove the 600s, so I got them. Found that even in balanced mode the Pono didn't have enough power to pierce the Senn veil, so that landed me at HF to get an amp, then learned I needed a DAC, and I found my way here.
Sennheisers. But then a Grado RS-1 which sounded bright as hell to me despite everyone at the time (2004) saying they were neutral. Which led me trying to figure out wtf was going on. Endless sidegrades of horribleness later and I finally found orthos.
I had the HD650, then KISS mod, and LCD2C for many years, changed several HP amps, all sounded good. But this combo have me sold. I read the recent combo tread on SBAF, but the combo is so good that I finically understand what the word “synergy” in the headphone domain. Synergy in in speakers systems are bit different, more predictable to me.
Good thread topic :)
