Hello and welcome @Arn_Saknusun, @Markj, @frank, @brunobm, @guyuemuziye, @Stinkles, @SpeedLisbon and @Ken_Driggers_II.
My name is Bob I am an audiophile!
I run a small technology consulting firm helping small businesses with computers, networking, etc… I do some professional photography on the side and I love gardening. I mess around with additive and subtractive machining.
I mess around with audio a lot. I write for Audiophile Style.
Currently I am using a JDS Labs Element III with Meze 109 Pro headphones at my desk.
My main audio system is an Audio Only 7.1.4 ATMOS system.
I recognized your photo, and thought you must have left this forum some time ago and come back. But then I realized I’ve read your posts on Audiophile Style.
Hopefully we can do some cross-pollination of ideas between the 2 forums.

Hello, in my youth was a hifi enthusiast in the seventies, building amplifiers and loudspeakers. After marriadge, studies and children all that stayd forgotten. After I retired few years ago I interested in hifi again. This time headphones and IEM’s, started with Sony’s MDR-ZX770BN and WH-1000X M3 (both too boomy-bass, but good ANC). Then tried IEM’s like Moondrop Aria, TinHifiT3+, Tripowin Mele, Letshuoer S12, headphones Hifiman HE400se and Sennheiser HD 600, “needed” an amplifier, so I got Topping DX3Pro+, then some new cheap IEM,s like Moondrop Quarks DSP, Truthear Hola, and QKZ x HBB, the last one is Sennheiser IE200. Actually, all but Sony’s are very pleasent headphones to listen my music (all gendres really). Sony’s are decent after some EQ. When I still study all kinds of things in youtube, I have YT premiun and YT music, my main source of music. After I realized to purchase better tips like SpinFit CP100+ and CP145, all my IEM’s are just good enough, yes, different but good. Did I understand this earlier, Aria would be all I neer, really. (sorry my no-native English)
I am happy that I found this forum. I would like to share experience and to learn about new (or vintage) gear. I like my hifi gear (two different sets in two rooms), especially my vintage receivers (Yamaha CR 640 and Marantz 2238b).
But meanwhile I am more on head gear. I am using Qobuz, Spotify and lots of FLAC files (16/44.1 - ripped from my CDs) stored on my NAS. In fact my MacBook is now my favorite “source”.
I am using a S.M.S.L M500 MK II and an Epiphany Objective2 / ODAC combo. My headphones are AKG K701 (original version “made in Austria”), AKG Q701 Quincy Jones, Hifiman HE-400, Hifiman Sundara closed back an a Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 Ohm.
I am open minded and hope to learn about head gear and I am ready to share my experience and knowledge.
Hi . A newby.
I just got a new Schiit Asgard 3 with dac and my Audeze lcd-xc cans should arrive in a couple days. Excited! I have Qobuz running on my windows 11 Dell laptop.
Do you think that I need an EQ program ( if so which one?) and/or Audirvana, JRiver, Fidelizer, Audiophile Optimizer etc.?
Quite confusing. Thx Dan
