Surface book running Tidal hi-res desktop app (with software decoding OFF) to a Grace Design SDAC to a Darkvoice 336SE (vintage GE 6080 6AS7 power tube and a NOS Silvertone 6SN7GTB driver tube) into my newly acquired Beyerdynamic DT1770 Pro cans.

Also pictured: Vsonic GR07 37th Anniversary Limited Edition IEMs with Fiio E12A Mont Blanc amp; I use an LG V30+ for portable audio (also through tidal, it even does native MQA support!), It's not pictured because it was taking the picture.
You are correct, I have had DT990s for so long that when I go to write "1770" my fingers just go to the nine key.

I'll fix it.
Trying out an LFF Code-6 now (heavily modded HiFiMan HE-6). Needs new pads. System is Breeze DU-U8 interface (will be replaced by Singxer SU-1 once I get rid of this other schiit), Chord Hugo 2 DAC, Mjolnir Audio Pure BiPolar amp.

my computer set up..

What u have going on here is my dream setup, gear is nice but the stereo to the left and placement is what I really like. What kind of desk is that?
thanx.. I well pleased with the stereo gear to left also Sony TA-N77ES..etc stack circa 1989~

the desk is about ~5yrs old and came from a place called Plummers (apparently AKA Scandinavian Designs) ..
The Toy Boxxe
Only the gear with lights is used in that chain. The DAC is trying to hide, it's a Chord Hugo 2 and the front is visible. The Breeze DU-U8 interface is not visible (once I get rid of some stuff I will get a Singxer SU-1).

Amp is a Pure BiPolar/Dynalo Mk2 from spritzer (Mjolnir-audio), headphones shown are the Audeze LCD-4 and ZMF Blackwood (I have plenty of others but those get the most use).

Unused headphone gear not entirely visible = Schiit Lyr 3, Chord Mojo, Garage1217 Project Ember II
...but the LCD-4's treble problems make it not worth keeping. Sounds worse than the Blackwood because of it. Got me a ZMF Ori in purpleheart today, my new primary headphone.

Oppo HA-2 SE (RIP) iPhone 8 Plus, Sennheiser 6XX (left) and HifiMan 4XX (right), and a Schitt Jotunheim peaking out from the rear.

Still prefer the listening experience/sound of the JBL Series 3XX Monitors (through the Jot) to either headphone experience--but it's all good.
Using the Modi 2U and Magni 2U as a DAC/Preamp for the Valhalla 2. Pairing them with the 800 S is music to my ears... Literally.
Nice... That setup is just begging to take on a worthy opponent !
I take it the small microphone in the foreground is for your syndicated radio broadcast ??
Schiit Jot. w/ the Edition X

Sweet, I just recently got a pair. Should be giving them a listen soon!

Balanced vs single end with the Edition X's?
I use balanced with the Edition x just because I own a couple of same connector headphones (Hifiman HE4xx & Emu Teak) and I have the cable but I believe you will be fine with the single end.

'AI' gives the first 'finger'...

It's all fun & games until one gets loose... I wish they did these AI experiments in a deep dark cave, running the things off old leaky car batteries, with no connection to the outside world... but you know they don't...

Just got the CMA400i Monday finally after being back ordered.

Those units are so nice, just oozes quality.
Yes, I am amazed by how good it is.
