Hey Steve, Yeah I'm going back to the N1...the RX-2 is for sale. I've got a baby on the way so I definitely want the ability to play at night silently and our house isn't very big so the N1 will have to suffice for now...such a pity. You know inter

I have to play a lot of concerts every year...so I think I get a good variety. I haven't done that much Chopin, but after doing Op. 39, 48, 52,53,54 and 58 I think I've played enough of him for now. I have long term projects, and other stuff which tu

Well I had planned to play a Mozart piece for this recital but got seriously derailed after the Chopin recital. For some reason I dabbled in some Brahms and got sucked in again. And I wasn't supposed to play ANY more Brahms this year.

I have had HD280's for a few years, but purchased M50's as well (in fact 2 sets), one for my pianos and one for my synths. I did get a AKG pair but the output was not as strong as the Audio Technica. I would go with the M50's as well

Thanks Tunewerk, Are you listening to an interval while detuning the DSU? There should be absolutely no beat interference. The method is no different than tuning A4 to the fork using F2. Trial and error, within a small, very small window of accepta
