I second this. And it's actually kind of comforting to know that Ash spent so much time seeking out the ideal sound in headphones and speakers and uses all GS products to do so.

I use what gets the job done. GS products are trustworthy and reliable. I combined the expertise of different specialists to get the best result I could. I am still refining but I am most of the way there already.

well that’s scary. What will you do when you arrive at your destination?

Well I'm keeping the Majestic and will buy Enigma PSU1 for it soon. That is definitely finalised. I am pretty sure I will stay with Proprius for driving MySphere rather than buying Solo ULDE with Enigma PSU1. I could try a loan of ULDE with Enigma and Lautus interconnects but I think it will be a waste of money, as I highly doubt any improvement would be heard over the Proprius. Proprius are true dual-mono and can process both a balanced signal and an inverted signal, which Solo can't do. I think this is more significant than having a linear micro-signal power supply at the amp level. Having the Enigma at micro-signal level (Majestic circuitry) will improve the resolution carried forward for amplification. I could try Libran interconnects between Majestic and Proprius instead of my current Lautus-R3 but over short cable distances, I doubt the balanced Libran will be better than the unbalanced 1.5m inverted phase Lautus with its ferrites. Would be close I think but not conclusive. Might upgrade earpads on my MySphere to further improve low bass dB SPL. Then it is just my source to sort; I need to have a simple, dedicated, wired streamer with no fans and a dedicated linear low noise PSU to compliment the Enigma. I just want minimal excellence.
