Hi guys,Long time Head-Fi member, and only knew about this site as some mysterious place that no one over there wanted to talk about. I then discovered this site recently from Tyll's HD800 mod article.I got into headphones seriously in 1994, and then after a few years of fun and exploration, I kind of settled down with a system that was good enough, but recently because of Schiit, I've been interested again. My list of equipment in roughly chronological order (that I still have):- Headroom Supreme (that I learned about in Stereophile), Ety 4S, and HD580- Sennheiser HE60 and HEV70- AKG K1000 + SAC amp- Senn HD600- Senn HD650- 2nd gen Headroom Max(long break)- Schiit Asgard- Apple dual-driver IEMs + Ety flanges (for airplanes)- Centrance DACport LX- Centrance HiFi-M8- new-to-me HD800 on its way- Bottlehead Crack + Speedball kit on its wayPlus various DACs moving in and out from the main system (eg. Theta Pro Prime IIA, modded Parts Connection DAC2, Rotel CD player). Main system BTW is based on a pair of gen 1 Linkwitz Orions, with Plutos as surrounds, and a Lexicon MC-12HD and Logitech streamer. It's far from a purist audio system, but I enjoy the heck out of it, and it's very difficult to find a better speaker than the Orions at any price besides its successors. Most of my music is from my large CD collection that I've been ripping piecemeal. My main interest is classical music, and I try to listen to as much of it live as possible. I'm lucky to live within driving distance of the LA Phil, and the amazing Disney Concert Hall, and had been a subscriber for over 10 years, before Dudamel took over. Talented guy, but I'm not a fan.I would say I'm an objectivist and have been trained that way as an engineer, but I know enough to know that there's lots of weird stuff that happens, so I try to be skeptical of both objectivist and subjectivist claims, with skepticism rising proportionally to the extremism of either side.Glad to be here, and it's fascinating reading past threads.
Hey guys! A friend got me into the hobby and also heard about this site from him.
Welcome aboard!Who's your friend? I'd like to pre-judge you based on whether I find this person acceptable.
