Great post Julio,

The headphones you have been listening to are seriious pieces of kit on their own. Great that the company lets you audition to compare in your own time and space.

About 6 months ago I was looking for a dedicated headphone amp and purchased one of these off ebay:


With multiple sources I have set up my CD player, VS2480 and a blu ray player (for Robert Rich's Perpetual and Somnium set).

The sound through my speakers improved so much I have hardly used my headphones since then and usually choose to turn on the CD player rather than the VS 2480 when I have spare time.
   It's a long time since I've been so excited by music that it's hard to play a complete album. Often what I'm listening to will remind me of something else and I'll have to put that on asap....

I'm hoping at some point soon to settle a bit and start recording again....

A worthy manifesto, indeed :)

Been enjoying a couple off the Planet Mu label. These albums seem to be in the Detroit techno kind of world, which I've been enjoying a lot recently, without actually knowing a lot about its origins/foundations. The first is a mutated electro, techno, with a real living sense of texture and incorporated serendipitous chaos. The latter clearly inspired by Vangelis' work on Blade Runner soundtrack, but taking things into a very interesting, simultaneously throwback/new direction. Excellently skittering beats...

Hieroglyphic Being: The Seer of Cosmic Visions

Kuedo: Severant

I tend to discover music by exploring a label, curious to hear more from Planet Mu, based on excellence of these two releases. Cover art sweet as well.

First of all thanks for the compliment on Seed Julio, and second I agree with Mike, great post!

I just upgraded my headphones to the new Audio Technicha ATH-M70x and all I can say is WOW! The clarity is stunning. The low end may seem shy to some, but its really more that it is not exaggerated like some headphones.

Hi Paul....Yes "Seed" is a sonic gem not often seen in ambient circles, and naturally that amount of detail is seriously matched by phenomenal music performance and production.

Ha ...  I was going to try out the Audio Technica ATH-M50x phones when at a store again. I'd heard very good things about their quality given their relatively affordable price point. Now I may have to spend more for the M70x !!!

I just went through a huge re-ripping binge and re-ripped my entire CD collection at lossless and unfortunately pretty much any cdr I had which used a sticky label of any kind is dead  :(

So all of my Oophoi, James Johnson, Vir Unis and Gears of Sand Discs are all DOA.
