      Obravo HAMT-1 headphone is the "can't remember brand" headphone.

      Questions: What's the name of the speakers in the Ypsilon room? Also, your picture of the Total Dac/The Lars room doesn't show the speakers. What are they? Thanks.

      Thanks for all the pictures. The Mytek Manhattan is remarkably ugly (the DAC, not the picture).

      To me, the most attractive DAC is the Burmeister one with the Stuttgart registration plate ''-)

      Hi Chris,

      have you had a chance to hear the Avantgarde Zero 1?
      I'm planning to visit them in some weeks to give it a listen, would be interesting to hear your thoughts.

      Hi, Schwebung,
      looking forward for your feedback, once you audition.
      Both Zero's and Grimm LS1's are very interesting concepts!

      Anyone heard the Grimms in Munich?

      diasagree about the Mytek look- they seem to have taken their design cues from the old EAD lineup- which is a good thing IMO.

      the LS1's sounded great as they nearly always seem to do. They seem to be pretty tolerant of rooms with acoustical problems

      by contrast the Avantgarde big horns sounded close to unlistenable in their glassed conservatory of a demo room !

      The speakers in the Ypsilon room are Ypsilon prototype speakers.
      Regarding your second question the speakers are Kaiser Kawero Classic.

      Yup, I found that out later on the net.

      Thanks. This is interesting. A local store is gradually bring in Ypsilon pieces. Hopefully they'll have a complete system eventually. That would be quite something.
