The Morduant Shorts are replacing the Polk Monitor 20s that I have on my sons MXR-130. The ApogÃ©es are for ...... well, you'll see next week ...... maybe!
The headphone amp is incredible; such a huge difference from the Stax transformer unit that came with the headphones. I also heard a pair of new Stax headphones this afternoon on my headphone amp and they are so far beyond the Lambdas that it isn't even funny. I also got to listen to the AKG 701s and, as good as they are (a bit better than my Lambdas with the headphone amp, mostly in the bass) they can't hold a candle to the bigger Stax (at 3 times the price, they better be!)..... guess I know what I'm asking for as a Christmas present ....
BTW, my speaker quest is not quite over yet .... let you know on Monday if I'm able to swing a deal on yet another set of speakers for ......
I can hardly wait for the 2 new sets of speakers and other equipment to arrive next week. I think that I may finally be getting to where I have wanted to be soundwise for all these years.

The Morduant Shorts sound even better than I remember them to the point where I'm actually reluctant giving them to my son for his system. Spent quite a bit of time cleaning both pairs up while listening to the other and, aside from a few nicks and scratches, the Morduant Shorts could almost pass for new after 3 coats of teak oil and the ApogÃ©e Monitors cleaned up remarkably well and are far less damaged than I had originally thought (they were FILTHY). Just need to find some matching walnut veneer and matching stain and I should be able to fix the damaged corners so they are barely noticeable. Unfortunately, the bottoms of all 4 speakers are severely damaged to the point that re-veneering them is the only way they will be passable.
The grilles are a whole other story so I will have to find some new matching cloth to recover them. One was missing the logo plaque and miraculously, I found a spare one in my box of spare parts along with 3 original grille mounting posts to replace the broken ones. Just one more thing to keep me busy for a few weeks.
