I've got to go to all the rooms because you never know when a traditional audiophile company will do something with headphones.

Like Music Hall and their new de-be on-ear headphone.

I've spent $4000 on the Stax 007 Mk2 and a custom-built KGSS amp, which can drive them as loudly and cleanly as you like.
