    How do they differ from the standard NS1000 ?

    Axel over at TVK has a good page explaining it. Basically everything is different.

    In terms of sheer VFM my Superlux HD 668B cans are insanely good for 30 quid. I get great enjoyment using them with nothing more exotic than my ageing smartphone.

    My MC RL21 standmounts. I was getting to the point of diminishing upstream returns after nearly 40 years of incessant box-swapping until I got these transparent beauties. They were so good that I got another set and I find that they thrive with high-ish end class D amps most of which I also didn't rate up until now.

    Is a piece of software allowed? If so then Audirvāna Studio for me playing on a Mac Mini.

    As a die hard vinyl fan that was never completely settled with digital, this particular purchase (in combination with a Quboz subscription and a pre-loved Chord DAC) made digital fuss free and musical. It also allows me to play my ripped CD collection, internet radio etc.

    For the joy and fuss getting it fixed and seeing it come back without a noisy volume control, and touching it to see how hot it got, and worrying how easily the paint came off, and admiring the black ribbed top ... that last bit gives it away I suppose ... the Musical Fidelity A1 integrated amplifier

    Klipsch Cornwall III speakers which I bought this year. Just gives so much musical access. Don’t think I could spend £3k any better.

    Audio Note J’s and E’s. Owned them over many years, just Fabulous.
    My all time favourite purchase was a Kondo Overture integrated. Although the entry level Kondo amp, for me, ‘Out of this world’!

    Agree with the AN-Es, as you'll know Mark!

    Totally subjective, but they've always just given me the impression of sounding (making music sound) so right. Even the most basic 'D' model. The forget and enjoy quality - ultimate goal really. I'll find a way to get another pair to work in the house one day :(

    Of all time, definitely my Ruark Talisman II speakers, bought used from Fanthorpes about 10 years ago and the absolute perfect speaker for my room.

    More recently, a Rega Elex-R / Naim ND5 XS2 combo to replace a problematic Uniti Nova. The Rega is marvellous.

    I keep looking at a pair of Cornwall's and wondering how they would sound on the end of a STA15.

    RFC Venus cable. It is the only component I have kept through changes of source, amp and speakers. Superb for analogue or digital. I guess also Proac Tablette Anniversary speakers, as I somehow keep gravitating back to them.

    i bought a cambridge audio 851n and an 851w. loved the sound so bought another 851w and run them in bi amp mode. about 6 months later an 851e pre amp came up for sale so i snapped it up. i think the 851e was quite an upgrade and made a big difference
