Consider this an extension of the leaderboard thread.

Let's all make personal flowcharts of what we consider valid "upgrade paths". You can do it in Paint.

I believe that term was first coined by Uncle_Erik on Head-Fi.

BTW, all the slight placement differences on the x-axis were deliberate

Oh no! I knew it. I spent the early part of this century in mid-fi purgatory!  AKG K and Grado! :&  When I couldn't take it anymore, I went all the way to speakers. Then I joined up with a bunch of pyrates and I was..... back to headphones.  :)p2

Nice chart OJ. Do you hear that song " Somebody's Watching Me" in you head? You should.  :P

Ok, based on OJ's chart, I have nothing to do... I think the ultimate chart would be one that provides a suggested path (as this does) but considering the DAC and the amp e.g. Yggy->KGSShv-> SR 009. It would be complicated given the permutations and combinations but fun as hell.

Add: I have the HD 800 with Anax 2.0; just waiting for the EC amps

Do you think there may be an acoustic leak from the jack hole? ~Tyll Hertsens

Not sure if I like stuffing one hole or both holes. Tending toward one hole since both holes seems kinda ghey ~Purrin
