Great album for a rainy evening.
(1971) The Allman Brothers Band - At Fillmore East
Listening to another copy of this album at this time. Current one seems to have more clarity and sounds more "alive". Maybe the previous album was worn. Or maybe I'm just getting warmed up.

Some people have said these AKG K702 phones are light on bass. This track has fantastic percussion on it that shows the bass of these cans to be deep, tight, crisp with definitely no muddiness.
Goodness gracious great balls of fire!
Word is, back in 1972, Donna Fargo was pretty darn happy!
Rockin' my new Senn HD4.40BTs at work for the first time.
So far, so good.

I had the original V-Moda LPs with me last night. I found myself skipping over many songs with vocals but some dance and EDM type stuff is awfully fun on the V-Modas.
Tonight is back to the Sennheiser HD4.40s which I'm really growing to like. My biggest complaint is that, while my ears fit in just fine, they are a bit snug front to back. Nothing unbearable though. I wear them basically three hours at a time.
Very decent sound for a Bluetooth set and i got these for $59 refurbished from Newegg though they look brand new.
Genesis remaster. What a great sounding album.
Spotify (regular, free) > Fiio X5 (USB DAC mode) > Transcendent Sound Masterpiece > DT770 Studio 80 ohm
The remastered "Blue Valentine" by Tom Waits.
I have the original version on the flashdrive as well. When I am not about to crash I might do a side by side comparison.

Cannonball and Nat in San Francisco with Sennheiser HD 800.
