    3870x2, sorry man. I've been looking, and if you're not looking for a preamp or a headphone amp, you'll need to double your price range to find a good amp.

    I prefer Grado over Senns as well but I like senns. I plan to add a set to my collection one day. HD598 or HD650.

    I also want another set of Grado's though. Something in the $1k to $1.5k range but I've been wanting that for a couple of years and so far haven't pulled the trigger.

    I prefer STAX and Audio Technica over any Senn any day. 350 USD is not a whole lot for a good headphone amp, 500+ you will start to get good quailty one from Burson and such.

    And I've got even more coke cans. :D

    And the printer does rattle when the sub plays, but it's in harmony with the music, so I try to think of it as augmentation of the music. :p

    Tried to take a better picture of the Buttkicker chair attachment. It does work quite well, but since my chair isn't an engineering marvel, it can rattle while the Buttkicker does it's work.

    And last, but not least, I forgot my beloved Sennheiser HD56. :O

    Well I am an unfortunate soul not having had the pleasures of hooking my SR225i's to a nice big tube amp and blasting my favorite music into my ear canals, but one day.

    whoa now hold up you can't post a picture of that beauty without a description. I know its not the Pioneer SA 8800 as that has a digi display and switches in different places however it reminds me of it? and can i get a closer pic?

    Some very nice set ups here putting me to extreme shame :(

    Eh I've got a pair of crappy $10 Logitech computer speakers.
    And a pair of sort of cheap Sony headphones.
    If I sell my old iMac and a couple other things to bring in some money i'll buy myself a real sound system!

    It's only a couple of posts but freaksavior has a point can we keep this for photos of audio equipment. Doesn't matter what that is from modern surround to vintage amplifiers, receivers and turntables. Questions about one case over another or pictures of computers there's threads for that already. Thanks guys n gals:)
