I just had an interesting idea. System synergy is one of the most important things in audio (IMO), and it’s one of the last things I really experienced and learned about as I grew in the hobby. Early efforts were just a mishmash of throwing gear together and seeing what sounded good, and I think it can lead newer hobbyists getting into repeated unwise gear purchases. (Like the high Z OTL amps to power their Fostex T50RPs…)
It would be cool if headphones.com had “introductory packs” with accompanying reviews from @Resolve that new or neophyte audiophiles could compare and buy, with a focus on system synergy.
For example, I think that the Modi 3 + Vali + HD6XX is a killer ~ $500 setup. Maybe there could be a collaborative “kit” from Resolve and Headphones.com that focused on getting the best sound out of a setup like that. Like… Ifi Zen + Sundara, or Chord Mojo + CA Comet, or the Fiio BTR3 and Koss Porta Pros… (I have no idea if either setup sounds good together, just using those products as an example.) And of course, must have a corresponding video review going over the setup so people know what they’re getting into - good bad or ugly.
Anyway, just a thought.
