I've actually become surprisingly immune to that place. Well, photography has replaced that habit. Every once in a while I'll get the urge to try out a tube amp like a Singlepower PPX3-6SN7 or something similar. But I get over it. And I really like my current gear, anyway.

My problem is really kinda simple:

I also like my current set-up, but I know that for just a "little" $200 more I can get "more" of the same!! And THAT'S almost addictive!!

My old house with my M3s spoiled me. My new room(which really sucks)is unable to give back what I lost musically when we moved into this larger house. Even with new floorstanders.

Cans on the other hand, of course, don't need a room beyond what they bring themselves to the party!

Ah tubes, haven't had a good tube rig since the 60s. I try to keep the "valves" closed on that aspect of the hobby!

Cans can be positively cheap, when tube gear is considered as an alternative!

......and sometimes I think the hunt is more fun than the kill!!

After a couple more weeks of tuff use, the pk100s are holding up well. I personally like the open style for mp3.

I think I'm cured. There was far too much talk of break in and special cables and blu-tak (!) over there.

As far as break-in and cables and stuff like that, there's just as much controversy there in the "Head-Fi" web-site as there is here! As a matter of fact there are a couple of specialized "No Flaming" forums within the site for folks to talk about such stuff amongst themselves away from those who think it's just a bunch of bunk! About the only thing that's tolerated, somewhat, is break-in and a tolerant nature toward just "touching on cables".

I've seen instances where a discussion on the regular forum turned to cables and was deleted by a mod after the members were warned to visit the appropriate "no flaming" forum!

The associated vendors sites selling their wares of course are far more open!!

I've always found the tweaker community on that site to be a great source of entertainment. Open up your headphones, put some blu-tak in and then they're the best headphones ever! Or drill a hole in the earpiece, put in a screen and make it an open phone! Or machine out some wooden earcups to replace the plastic ones! There's a big market for that stuff over there.

And don't get me started on the cable and speaker forum over there. Some people would lead you to believe that the absolute baseline price for good cables is $1k.

Well, that's the first time I've ordered anything with the explicit plan to send things back...

On the way to me are

AKG K 81 DJ
Sennheiser HD 25-P
Sennheiser HD 280

I'll post impressions and comparisons with my other phones if anyone is interested.

If you ask really nice, I might post pictures. But I might not.
