Yes sir, the MDR's. I've tried the 1A's before, and they sound absolutely lovely.

I have an old CDP-85ES Changer that I'm working on restoring to sell right now too with a built in DAC and headphone amp. I've seen some of them go on the bay for about $250 in "okay" shape. Tickles me inside a bit.

I looked at your link, but I must confess that I always preferred Sennheiser's, at least before they moved production to China. Oh, yes, Stax too - back when I was a headphone enthusiast, I had a pair of SR-5 earspeakers (as Stax called them) powered with a Stax vacuum-tube amp (forget the model #). That rig provided me with some of the best audio I ever experienced - however, increasing tinnitus put the brakes on my headphone hobby.

No harm, no foul. Most Sony ES gear I've found is quite expensive - to the point I can't justify the expense. It's geared towards the audiophille who insists on having a pricetag go with his sound. I personally feel you can get great sound out of a pair of Senny's or Pioneer's.

just found this thread and have to say im an analog freak!
ive got a 1976 vintage pioneer sx-1050 receiver [wish it was an sx-1250] which is wonderful.
ive also got the pioneer ct-f9191 and ct-f8282 tape decks, circa 1977. yes, i still listen to tape.
maxell ud-xlII, and xl-II tapes that i recorded back in the 70's and 80's dont seem to have suffered from the years.
other brands have not fared well though. i was in the habit back then of playing an album once,recording it
to tape then listening to the tape. im enjoying listening to albums again, and to me analog is where its at.
my pioneer pl-630 turntable is long gone so i purchased a audio technica and it sounds great.
people will argue digital is best, but for me analog..records..tapes, are best.

I prefer analog myself. I just did the math a few days ago. I got my first stereo when I was 8. It took me 3 years to go from Analog, that is Unbalanced L/R to TOSLINK. It took me 13 years to go from TOSLINK to HDMI 1.4. Even in spite of that, I still am rocking a DAC. One of my systems has a Pioneer PL-990 attached to it. Another has a Pioneer CRT (I wanna say an WS340, or something?) tape deck.

Even though I have a lot of digital sources now, I too will still argue in favor of analog. I use an Emotiva XDA-2 Gen 1 to convert the signal of music files on my PC to analog before it hits the Pre. Then from the pre (I use a Fusion 8100) it goes out unbalanced to a set of power amps.

I used to have a Pioneer SA-420, the integrated amp of the SX-1040 (if my memory is right). That thing was a blast!
