I agree with Mike. You find Jon that you play more CD's and streaming with a nicer sounding DAC. As you are really enjoying playing records I can see your reasoning makes sense. FWIW I found the Axxxolab sound very detailed but quite hard sounding, brittle would be another word for that. The Majestic is as revealing too, perhaps more so as different instruments are in their own space in the mix, and it is much nicer to listen to at any volume level for me.

Open mind and ears whilst owning GSP Genera, Accession M, Accession MC, Elevator EXP, Solo ULDE, Proprius amps, Cusat50 cables, Lautus digital cable, Spatia cables and links, and a Majestic DAC.

It was the detail that I wonted which is what I told the dealer when I 1st got my system almost 6 years ago (CD player, amp and speakers) and he chose the CD player and amp then I got to chose which speakers I liked out of three, Much as changed since then and now it's only the CD player that I still have. At the time it was a big up grade on what I had and I was very happy with it, Both the CD player and amp were new out at the time and with the budget I gave him he said he you would have to spend a lot more to get an improvement. I was happy to take his advice and to me he didn't do me wrong. The next CD player up was £300 more and he said I don't think it's worth the extra, By the way the one he picked out that he thought was a lot better was £800 more but that would have put me well over budget.

I like the Majestic and Proprius so much that I will probably buy a second set with the funds I will get from selling my headphone. After not using headphones for a long time, I prefer to listen with open baffle speakers. Much more depth.

Turn the volume down and move the speaker cones much closer to the head. A lovely pure sound, single suspension cone, wide dispersive emittance, no crossovers. Proximity effect bass means I won't bother anyone else in the house. Stereo imaging so much better than with headphones. Binaural recordings (for headphones) have even greater depth.
