        DJ Mighty Atom (of DMC fame) put together an absolutely BADASS Endtroducing-themed mix for Solid Steel (and anyone who knows Ninja Tune/DJ Food/Solid Steel knows they don't fuck around when it comes to mixing.. this mix is no different.

        I'll link to a couple of my favorite Endtroducing-samples mixes in the hip hop thread.. but this one here from Atom got the famed back to back replay tonight. It's that good.

      Elear in the hizzouse! Initial impressions.. I'm liking it. Very HD650-ish. Dat headband pressure,though.. man, not optimal, atm.

        The headband and especially the metal gimbal/holk/extender parts that connect to the cups are very malleable. You can actually screw things up if you fiddle with it too much. :)

      Question, do you still have the Corda PC-Step and can you recommend it?

        Haven't had it for quite some time.. but I remember enjoying it quite a bit.. slightly warm, eminently smooth, dynamic, and quite resolving. Great value for the money. Loved the QuickStep even more, though.

      Really enjoying the EE Spartan custom IEM I've had for a little bit. Outside the UERM, it may possess my favorite tonal profile to date.

        Trying to think of how I'd describe the sound quality/tuning in relative terms.. slightly warmer UERM (i.e. off a neutral, 1-2 ohm OI amp) + a smoother, more holographic-sounding Ety ER4SR? Yep.. kinda like that. I can't speak for the universal version of the Spartan.. but this custom version I have is checking all the boxes for me.

        Pretty sure this will be my last custom IEM for a while. Been on that merry-go-round for a while and this guy performs in line with my priorities. Will go grab a uni IEM next.. maybe something less reference/more fun.. Series 5S, I'm looking at you.

        Stacker has always been special. It is the Glass predecessor. This particular amp was built by Saachi, pretty boutique parts list. Is a killer deal on a fine amp. Not so much CTH - the tube stage in CTH is very different, part of what gives the stacker and liquid glass its magic..dB

      Prelim testing the Momby's USB vs coax input (using a ratchet-ass USB-to-SPDIF converter). Coax sounds more 'right' to my ears.

        Yep.. that Raspy+coax HAT is what I'm angling at, Daniel! Thinking about one of those halfway decent XMOS DDC converters that run about $200, as well. I don't think anything more is a worthwhile investment (from a value to performance perspective) for a Modibit. Raspy w/ coax hat is still cheaper (and probably better), I think!

        I haven't. I was quite interested in them. I had a Heir Audio 4S (back before they turned into Noble) and enjoyed it (though the 4K dip made a lot of stuff in the presence region sound a but dull). @Kunlun had good things to say about the Savanna.. more of a jack of all trades, but master of none.. which seems pretty typical with most 4-BA driver, neutral-tuned monitors these days.

        Ultimately, I opted to go with the Empire Ears Spartan IV. I've had a lot of EW/EE phones (Supra II, Legend/Remastered/Omega) and enjoyed them for the most part.. I'm hoping the Spartan will be the most neutral of the bunch.
