I will be at Axpona this weekend and will be closed until Monday.
In the last year I have amassed some of the best headphones currently available. Brands include Audioquest, Focal and Audeze. Prices range from $449.00 to $4000.00. I have also been seeking out the best headphone amps. Offerings are from Auralic, Quad, Ayre, and Sugden.
With many audiophiles wanting to listen at home without disturbing family members the current crop of headphones leave little to be desired for.
Come and check them out!!!

Just arrive is the magnificent And 23 Hommage 755. The sheer beauty of sound can only be matched by the remarkable craftsmanship!
The design of the Hommage 755 is based on the esthetics of the Western Electric 753 loudspeaker, the sole speaker of Western Electric, which was offered for private use. Like as the Hommage à Ken speaker, the Hommage 755 is fitted with the LM 755 Alncio driver. All parameters of driver were carefully tuned to the dimensions of the cabinet. The development and realisation of the concept – supplemented by further insights that derived from the manufacturing of other speakers by Auditorium 23 – led to a result that gives a strong signal in the segment of full-range speakers. The physical properties of the LM 755 driver are perfectly maintained in all parameters by LineMagnetic Audio. The extreme complex and costly Alnico-structure, the thin pole plate, the ‘overhanging’ wound voice coil (manufactured for the first time by Western Electric and a feature of the 7 series), the accurate and well considered large conception of the spider in a wisely produced basket with little windows, the flat shape of the membrane, built as a one piece dome-construction out of the cellulose-pulp – properties which Western Electric elaborated in the 1940s. More than a few consider the WE 755 driver to be the best full-range driver in general. With a height of roughly 35 inches the Hommage 755 loudspeaker is the *Piccolo* in the product line of Auditorium 23. With its elegant, high-quality and lean design this speaker can be easily integrated into the personal living space – with sonic results only to be found with excellent full-range drivers.
