Wow never appreciated how huge the SPL is!
A lot has changed but I’m still happy! (Speakers help )
Auteur is a friends...
Things are beginning to get crowded, so a rethink of the setup is necessary. I think moving the PC to the left side would give me some more space and allow me to utilize desk space more efficiently.
Current setup (see signature) with @Taverius beautiful Vérité on a short visit.
Now that I have a fancy headphone cable and headphone stand, I guess I should take a picture (thanks for the inspiration @Vtory ).
I think the only thing I need to add is a turntable.
What cable is that?
Norne Draug v3
I don’t have experience with other fancy cables, but it is nice and I guess the litz copper mellows the last little bit of harshness of the HD800SDR compared to stock cable.
Not as cool looking as the MHA150 with its blue meters, but here's another McIntosh in the house. In contrast to the MHA150, the MA252's headphone out appears to have been added simply as an afterthought. This amp is meant to be used with hard-to-drive phones (HE-5/5LE/6/Susvara) from its speaker posts.
My Phonitor xe arrived yesterday. I do love the old school look of the vu meters...
I think it is safe to say my setup is complete for now with the arrival of the Utopias. Wow they sound great!
A bit of a mess but here is mine.
this is my headphone / audio setup, i mostly use my utopia, bw auteur, camphor eikon or lcd-4 these days. i also have a pair of buchardt s400 speakers that should (hopefully) be arriving at the end of the month as well.
After reading through many SBAF threads and impressions, I ended up with this setup and I'm quite happy and thankful. I'm still waiting for DSHA-3F to be made, but I'll post my impressions on the Verite and ZDT Jr. once I had more time with them
Headphones: ZMF Verite Ziricote
DAC: Schiit Gungnir Multibit A2 Gen 5 | Fulla 2
Headphone amp: Eddie Current ZDT Jr. w/ GE JAN-5654W
Here is my Headphone Setup sorry for the poor image quality
I have the same keyboard, valhalla2 and hd800 as you.
Holy fcuk. What a man cave!
Thanks! It is a nice man cave. The other side of that room is a 7.2 home theater with 120" screen and projector. I only have one row of theater seating for 4 though. Which is fine for my family of 4 but if we have company then the kids have to use bean bags on the floor.
Very very eye-eating and hear-delicacy setup.
Went down the RAAL route after going through the Myspheres loan and a visit to local RAAL dealer. Ergonomics wise these works better for me.
